Since I first saw this chassis at Computex earlier this year I have been eager to get my hands on it. I absolutely loved the Air 540 chassis, but I had one minor gripe about its design, it was too big! I wanted to use the chassis for my own system build, but it wouldn’t fit under or on top of my desk due to its box like form factor. Either way, the Air 540 was a lovely looking and very capable chassis, but Corsair know people want something a little more compact and have come back with the Air 240, a mini-ITX / MicroATX compatible HTPC / LAN box style chassis.
Corsair already have a stunning range of chassis products on the market, but they’ve often dominated the larger form factors, now with the release of the Air 240 they have their targets set on the smaller form factor market and the Air 240 looks like a promising product for those who are limited on space, or need a high-end system with some level of portability. With the rise in popularity of LAN gaming events, having a rig you can put in the boot of your car and take with you is a welcome bonus and it also helps if the chassis is still capable of packing huge amounts of hardware despite its smaller size.
