Anyone know if the newly announced H105 will fit up top in this case?

With a single set of fans, it should fit no problem. thumb.gif But with the 38mm thick radiator, a push/pull setup won't fit.

Yes the H105 will fit in the top of the Air 540.It is a 38mm rad with 25mm fans for a total of 63mm.

Add me to the club! I've had this case for about a month and absolutely love it. Today I changed a few more things out on it after lurking this thread quite a bit. I am quite pleased but still have some changes planned.

Case: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540
MOBO: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (OC to 4.0GHz)
CPU Cooler: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance with 2 bgears b-Blaster 140's. Had an issue with rattling fans with the stock.
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB
RAM: CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 128gb
HHD: 1TB WD and 1.5TB seagate
Fans: Stock 140 exhaust on back. 3 Corsair SP120's on front intake. Tuned down to 70% in bios cause they sound like 757 engines otherwise.

Used two Silverstone CPF01 3.94" PWM Fan Splitter Cables'. One splits the CPU OPT for the bgears and the other splits a PMW chassis header for less cables and I can tune the front in take fans down with one header.

I went with pull config on my radiator because it's easier to clean and the temp difference is negligible, especially with the bgears.

If you want to test whether you have positive or negative pressure all you need is a tissue. Find an area on the case with a lot of mesh that doesn't have a fan installed and hold the tissue up to the case. If there is air being sucked in through the mesh the suction will hold the tissue against the mesh and you can safely say you have negative pressure. If the tissue is blown away from the case then you have positive pressure.

Keep in mind, you don't have to limit yourself to one or even two colors in your color scheme. You can make a rig done with red and blue hardware work, providing there are other components that help to tie the colors into the build. It doesn't take much to make a second color look like it belongs in the case. Blue and red aren't an easy combination to make work but they aren't impossible either.

 

I just tested it and it blew the tissue away fairly quickly - so I guess that answered our question lol.

 

As for making blue and red work then I am at a loss, I have zero creativity , even after spending hours browsing through all the amazing rigs on OCN.

 

Here is my current rig, it's a rat king and hasn't been cleaned out in a year (although I clean the fans a lot since I can just pop the blades off without removing them from their casings)

"By retaining the popular 240mm radiator mount, the H105 is also compatible with the vast majority of cases on the market, meaning enthusiasts needn’t worry about having to compromise on their choice when it comes to case or CPU cooling.
“For 240mm radiators, we’ve had a lot of requests for a thicker version with more surface area to improve cooling performance. Now those requests have been answered,” said George Makris, Product Manager for Cases and Cooling at Corsair.

So, I'm in the planning phase of my next build using this case and I've been lurking around the web checking out some specs and feedback. Does anyone know how many millimeters I'll have from the top of the mobo to the top of the case if I'm using a RIVBE? I've seen some builds that push the distance of a push pull setup close to the top of the ram.

You guys think I can get away with a push pull config using 25mm thick fans and 30mm thick rad with this mobo installed?

Migrating my current build + a few new goodies (case LED strip, fan controller) into the 540 from my 650D. Can't wait =)
