[Official] Corsair Carbide Air 540 Owner's Club +Gallery - Page 1177

post #11761 of 12549
I recently got the NZXT HUE+ Advanced PC Lighting kit which is RGB and highly customizable, it's great.

It comes with four separate strips of LED's and i mounted two internally and two semi-externally between the case-frame and grills.

Here is just two of my favourite fixed colours..... uv purple [7f1ae5] & nVidia green [76b900]

I have a video of it in action but don't seem to be any way to upload here so i'll need to put it up some where else and link to it. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

EDIT: Video added...

Here is one phone pic of mine


Rampage IV Black edition with 4930K@4.5GHz. It goes 4.6 but requires 1.32V to be stable, it even has acceptable temperatures but somehow I feel more comfy with 1.26V with 4.5GHz. Performance difference is very minimal.

I should update my signature and rigs in profile. So much has changed.

Thanks, nice build you have there also! I see your doing push/pull, I like it and was going to do that, but it sure is a tight squeeze at the top of the Rampage. The turns out my CPU temps do fine on the mild overclocks I run, the reference GPU coolers however don't do so well, I cutout the 3.5" drive bays on the bottom and added two more 140 intake fans and that did help a little bit. This and the 540 getting built below it will both get custom water loops before it's all done.

I built this almost 2 years ago, I bought 1 air540 to see if I could mod it to be rackmounted, after this went well I have been working on 3 more rackmounted 540's, and turning them into 2 double stackers. I made rack rails for them to be flushmounted in the wall of my Media Room buildout.

Rampage IV Black
i7-4930k (I generally run it @ 4.2ghz)
64GB Dominator Platinum
3x EVGA 780ti
LiverGamer HD Hdmi Capture card
AX1500i PSU

In the pic above you can kinda see there is an Impact VI in the bottom 540, which was temporary while I built and configured the Impact before moving it into an Air240 for my wife's office.

Here is an old pic of the rack rough framed, the rack will get trim to match the doors and windows in the room. I am currently building a Z10PE-D8 Dual Xeon for the bottom half to replace the two servers in the pic below.

Seems very nice. I have 32GB 2400MHz Dominators working very well. I am planning second mobo mod in my 540: I have Impact VII in my "media pc" and I plan making removable rack, which I can pull out from the rear. It should mount it all, one or two SSD, sfx power, itx-mobo and gpu.

Would love to see you do that! The AIR540 has tons of room in the rear and especially if not using the 5.25 bay cage and SSD cage and remove them, then it really is bare back there. The impact's are so small I think you could totally make it fit.

Basically this sledge would be mounted above PSU and it would be as large as I can fit to enter when I cut honeycomp mesh from the rear.

I do plan indeed removing SSD cage and most likey 5.25" cage. SSD can be just moved under 5.25" slots.

I will be leaving to Germany tomorrow for couple of weeks but I'll sketch something up when I return.

I've never heard anything bad about mounting them in different orientations, but moving it while it is running or dropping it can be very harmful.

HP likes to live on the edge!


On another note, I got the rest of my extensions in and my filter kit. I'm only using the filters where I have air coming in or open spots, the front filter had to stay with the original because the DEMCiflex one is a little too flexible and hits the fans. This build is as done as its going to get, although I the GTX 970 will be swapped out for Pascal when it comes out. I'm enjoying the silver/purple theme a lot, don't think I've ever seen a build with these colors specifically.

Also, I swapped out the stock Corsair H105 fans for a pair of the Fractal Venturi ones, what a massive difference. The temps are the same and the fans are so quiet I can't even tell they are running.
