Corsair shows off its Carbide Air 540 case at Computex. As reported yesterday, this case has a pretty unique design, it has a cube-like form factor and features the motherboard in the middle, and the power supply and storage devices in the right half of the case. The Carbide Air 540 has a MSRP of $139.99.
The Carbide Series Air 540 is designed with a wider form factor with two “side-by-side” chambers and a Direct Airflow Path™ layout. This unique design helps the case deliver best-in-class cooling at incredibly low noise levels.
The main chamber of the Carbide Series Air 540 houses the motherboard 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 system devices. In addition, layout in each chamber is optimized to limit obstructions and streamline airflow from the intake fans to the hottest PC components, resulting in lower temperatures and noise levels.
