Corsair Carbide Air Series 540 Case Now Available in White
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Corsair have 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 colours. I can see a lot of Corsair fans loving this new colour scheme and while black chassis dominate the market there is a lot of demand for stunning white products. The Air Series 540’s innovative high-airflow layout and striking looks have won it over 40 awards from top PC reviewers worldwide, including an award from myself when we reviewed it back in June.
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.
