Hello members of Carbide Air 540 Owner`s

This is mine

Specs:
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X Evo R2.0
Cpu: AMD FX-8370@4.6Ghz
RAM: HyperX Beast 8x4GB
GPU: 2X Gainward Geforce GTX 970 Phantom under water overclocked to 1252 on core and 1953 on memory(can do even higher)
PSU: Chieftec APS-1000CB 1000W 80+ Bronze
Primary Storage: Plextor SSD 128GB M6e Black Edition
Secondary Storages: WD Caviar Green and Black both 1TB

Building since late 2014(gathering parts here and there) and at first used AIO(Corsair Hydro H105) to cool the processor, couldn`t overclock it because of the cooler itself(it couldn`t handle the heat from the mini powerplant biggrin.gif ), so at start it was at stock clock.
Since late 2015 started to plan on the Custom Loop(thanks to EKWB) and ordered first parts. EKWB all-in-one package named Xtreme 360 and added the GPU block in the loop. Now it has SLI Gainward Geforce GTX970 Phantoms in the loop and its doing great.
Stressed it with MSI Kombustor(running at the same time the CPU Burner and GPU stress test) temps never went past 60C on processor and 41 on GPUs.Bit laggy to run them both at the same time but still it managed it.
All the blocks are in one loop. No dedicated loop for the GPUs or such.Not using any dyes or such. Just EKWB clear coolant and distilled water.
Tried for experimental reason: Shut down all fans except exhaust push-pull fans on 120mm radiator while running only Msi Kombustor CPU Burner to test the quietness of PC and temps never went past 60C running Vardars on 900rpms through BitFenix Recon Fan controller.
For gaming running all fans at minimum and it has tons of cooling capacity
I have 5 F3 Vardars and one stock LED fan that came with the case.
As far i can say it can manage all the things i throw at it with reasonable FPS in gaming with no problem and still got headroom to push it even farther.

Dismantled my Air540, and took the parts I wanted...this is what is left. I will be throwing the rest away at the end of the month unless somebody wants any/all parts. Free, but you pay shipping. The blue flat piece on the end is an acrylic painted piece I used to cover the HDD trays on the bottom. The glass panel has a semi decent OCN blue flame logo sprayed on it, The back cover has peel and stick felt pieces. The top and front grill covers are spray painted, and have had some hot glue applied strategically to eliminate rattle from the pump that was in there.

OMG lol I wanted the drive cage from this case SO BADLY. Where would it be shipping? I already cut a fat hole in my front panel so it's a bit late but you never know if it'll come in useful later.

drive cage is not available. All you see is all there is. The rest is either already in the trash or being re purposed in another build.

Sorry, but that is why I took a picture of what is available.

Are you looking for one of the 3.5 inch drive trays that lock into the slots under the motherboard or the 2.5 inch ones in the rear of the case?

I was looking for the 5.25 drive bay, but I couldn't wait any longer and made this happen. I needed a way to mount this hot swap bay. I'm actually still looking if anyone has one. These caselab anti vibration mounts are fine but they take up too much horizontal space and are butting against the compartment divider. I just know that it's going to vibrate the chassis..
