Fremont, California — December 12, 2013 — Corsair®, a world leader in high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced that the Carbide Series Air™ 540 mid-tower PC Case is now available in arctic white in addition to the previously available black and steel silver colors. The Air Series 540’s innovative high-airflow layout and striking looks have won it over 40 awards from top PC reviewers worldwide.
Carbide Series Air 540 High Airflow Mid-tower PC Case
The Carbide Series Air 540 is designed with a wider form factor with two “side-by-side” chambers and a unique Direct Airflow Path™ layout. The layout in each chamber is optimized to limit obstructions and streamline airflow from the intake fans to the hottest PC components, allowing the Air 540 to provide best-in-class cooling at low noise levels.
The main chamber of the Carbide Series Air 540 houses the motherboard, graphics cards, and hot-swap 3.5” drives for superior drive cooling and quick swapping. The second chamber holds the power supply, SSDs, and 5.25” drives behind the motherboard tray. The separate compartments make building a breeze and provide cleaner cable routing and superior cooling for hotter devices.
