Only thing is, there are no 5.25" drive bays. But overall, it's very sleek looking and looks to be similar to our 540's but with higher quality materials.

Looks like a very pretty case, I may have to grab one of those if I ever decide to put my folding rig underwater.

I have mixed feeling about that case. The best part of the Air540 is that it creates a chamber of direct air flow with nothing blocking it. By moving the 3x120mm fans to the oother side, you dont have that anymore. It also looks smaller. That's just for looks.

For water it would be interesting. I'd imagine someone could so some nice things with that left side to really make that case shine. it is definitely a pretty case though, but I would like to see it with a 360 and 240 or 280 rad and loop before I give judgement.

One thing I find weird with that case as well is how it envisions 360 rad placement, which from the site page shows to be a frontal installation. This means the tubing should run up front instead of inside. Seems like it won't be as aesthetically pleasing.

I ran 2 x 7950s each on a 120mm rad AIO and temps were better than stock but still got in the high 60s. Depending on the card, you wont be sub 50, but it'll be better than stock. I'd imagine the 970/980 nvidia cards would fair pretty good on these.

I'm debating to just start getting components together now and buy next gen GPU's next year when they come out. If I have too I could mod floor for another rad. I would probably do front alphacool UT60 360 and top UT60 240.

Yeah if you plan on hopping on 980ti/390x, then I would hold off. With the porice of waterblocks, it just doesnt make sense to wc the gpu unless you going to keep it for awhile.

I think a UT360+UT240 would be plenty. Im using the ST line and the h220x radiator and i have good temps.

prolima makes a 15 mm 120 fan puts over 50 cfm and not sure on the pressure..antone will see I mention these fans a lot and the reason is I have a full tub of all makes and models of fans and the prolima are the quitest and thinnest that can put out some air and if your in a tight build they are awesome , next another that is real quit is the areocool dead silence they can pump some air with good static pressure. for some reason never been a fan of the corsairs everyone uses and that's probably why everyone else has them , I found the spec on the 120 prolima all these fans are 20 dollar fans , my favorite cheaper fan is the nzxt ..good news there is a **** load of them , and a good place that list all the fans and there specs is the frozen cpu website I know there closed but I believe you can still nav the sight ..have fun
