It does indeed. I got the Haf XB only for comparion, but my rig will stay in the 540 ^^
But I´ll probably end up modifying the XB and I´ll use it with another buld (maybe I´ll fit a water cooled PS4 inside xD)

LOL! Now that would be cool to see a water cooled PS4.

I hope retailers get the Air 540 in on 7/31 as it Corsair is listing on many sites. I just bought the 300R, but I wouldn't mind switching to the Air 540.

I wanted to get a 330R for my dad along with the 540, but it wasn´t availiable on the website so I ended up geting a 300R in a local store.
It´s a good case for the price but.. well, I won´t like xD I like all the corsair cases but the C70 xD
Anyway I think the 540 is the best case for the price I´ve seen in a really long time.

The 330R is a nice case, but quite the taller than I originally expected. This is my first Corsair case, and it shows the quality build of this case.

I'm quite interested in the 540, it looks like a very cube style case that would also work in a HTPC environment. I'm hoping that it shows up in retailers at the end of the month.

For a HTCP:.. the biggest corsair case I would go with is the 350D (the smallest they have, as far as I know), but if you need full size ATX support I preffer the 300R more than the 540; the 540 would take too much space considering you woulnd´t be runing a water loop and that you would only use 1 optical drive.. you would get a lot of empty space on the PSU side.

I have considered the 350D, its a decent size when compared to the 330R. The 330R is a great case, but its like a hulking beast in my AV Stand. My motherboard is a mATX, which I usually stick with mATX. I still have my previous HTPC case, the Silverstone Grandia GD08 but I am so limited with what I can do. I started modding the case a bit and screwed up some things on it.

I'm only running a H60, haven't gone to a full loop since I'm not brave enough yet to try + the funds aren't quite there.

Haha, same here with the H100i, but mine isn´t for HTPC use.
Can´t you use the 300R sideways?

I thought the 350D would be the best choice because you could add a 4hdd cage in top of the 2hdd cage included with the case (with some minnor modding) if you need it but I´ve seen that you have a 770 and It won´t leave enough room to place the HDD cage just in top of the other.

The good thing is that I only have 2 HDD's and I would add an SSD in the future so I don't really need any extra HDD cages. This is what it looks like right now, which is not all that bad.

Would this case be suitable for my MSI MPower motherboard and my Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler?
Is there any other options I should look up into?
Thanks in advance. smile.gifthumb.gif
