Nice build! Kindly let me know what you think of the filters.. especially the front as I guess it rubs the fans somewhat. doh.gif

2. It's called orienting the fans in push/pull, where air is both being pushed and pulled through the cooling medium at the same time. The performance increase is marginal, but it does look really cool, lol.

3. As long as you have some kind of fan control, the stock fans are not at all loud. Cougars are some good fans to look at for some better performance without spending a small fortune.
Kind of sucks about the rubbing. I'm going to assemble my build next week and see how things are. Wish Corsair had included additional filters or at least had included one for the bottom.
Thanks for the fan orienting info and pretty much what I thought. I'm not likely to do it myself.
I haven't purchased any fan control at all at this point. Just the basics to get the build running then I'll look into fans and controllers.. something I've never needed before. Not likely to OC anything as stock it'll be a huge upgrade from what I currently have. Mostly looking for it to be as quiet as can be yet still keep decent temps. Gaming I expect fans to spin up but I hope general usage or playing a movie its quiet.

Can anyone confirm that other side panels from corsair cases will fit on the corsair 540?

It does fit as I had my h320 fitted into a 540, although I took the hdd trays out as its a tight squeeze

Cheers

I agree. If you are running air cooled GPUs, deffinetly go with 3 x 120s so you can get more air to the lower card.
