Nice; I think it turned pretty good. I've been eyeing that motherboard, but I was wavering before on whether the silver/gray bits would look odd against the blank. Well, with this Noctua fan, though, nothing is gonna match, so why do I even try...you can't even get close with the brown 24-pin & USB 3.0 header, as the cables will always block them out.

Yes!! It's sitting in my basket now on Amazon, haha. It's the cheapest and most reliable option. I keep getting tempted by the NZXT Hue+ (or the Aqua faberwerk + SMD 5050s) so I can (never because I'm lazy as hell) customize the LEDs with temperature or sound.

Haha yeah those noctua fans are quite hideous, but they are good no doubt. Yeah I was actually tempted today to grab the Hue+ but for $70? Eh I'll just keep an eye out if I see it go on sale.

Oh and yeah the brown headers on it are weird and random, but can't see them at all. Didn't even notice till I already installed ram, installed it in the case and was plugging in the 3.0 cable, I was like "wait what?" Haha. It does have the white LED on it though, it's a nice little touch I wasn't even expecting till I pressed the power button to turn it on.

Hey guys, going to try and tidy up the cable management in my 540 here soon, and while im doing that I'm going to secure my fan controller in place better.

I want to screw it into the 5.25in bay, so can anyone tell me how to properly pop it out? I don't want to potentially break or snap anything important like clips by forcing anything off.

Silent Wings 2 are very good in my opinion, definetly quieter than the stock Corsair. I think I'm gonna go all Noctua fans soon: 3x120mm in the front, 1x140 in the back and 2x120s for the H100i.

Redid my cables today and installed the front intake fans directly behind the grille for improved airflow. Very happy with how good everything looks now:

Does anyone know where I can get the cable management grommets for the 540? I found a set of 3 for another case...... http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-600q-c-cable-management-grommets-x3 They look similar in size.

Thanks... Very cool forum and cool cases. I just got my case.

Call corsair and find out the size heck they might even send you them for free if you're lucky

Hey everyone! I recently completed a new build in the Air 540 and thought I'd show it off as it has some unique features. I used two 360mm radiators and one 240mm radiator in this build on an ASUS Hero VIII motherboard powered by an Intel i5 6600K and a ASUS GTX 1080 OC edition. I used an EK block and backplate for the GPU and an EK monoblock for the motherboard and CPU. I incorporated a custom panel using aluminum, acrylic and LEDs to clean up the bottom of the case. I also used custom 3D printed mounts to hold a second 360mm radiator in the back side of the case. It's tied together with mostly Monsson PETG rigid tubing which I bent with a heat gun and a mandrel bending kit. There's some soft tubing in two sections due to space restrictions and ease of future maintenance. Check it out and let me know what you guys think! Here's a link to the build log Build log of Red RoGgy and a few teasers here.

I have the 290x lightning Custom cooler and a noctua d15 on an i7 4790k insode the case and i have to keep the side panel off as a lot of heat is generated in the case and forces a pc shut down.

Last time it shut down i opened the case and touched various sections and they were burning hot !

I have 3 front 120 intakes, and 2 top and 1 back out. All are insode the case and i have demxiflex filters on the outside. Any ideas? Thinking of water but i dunno if i want to fet a wb for the 290x so latein its life cycle.
