[Official] Corsair Carbide Air 540 Owner's Club +Gallery - Page 424

post #4231 of 12460

I've been mulling over performing a transplant from my blue Laboy Air into a Air 540 with a red theme. The following is a list of parts that I would like to get any of your opinions on.

 

What will be transplanted into the Air 540 (black)

 

1) i7 2600K CPU

2) ASRock Z68 Pro Gen 3 Fatal1ty Mobo (red)

3) Mushkin Redline 16gb (red)

4) Radeon 7970

5) Corsair H70

6) Seasonic 750X

7) Samsung DVD Burner (black)

8) Two SSDs and one regular hard drive

 

What will be purchased for the Air 540 (black)

 

1) Red SilencX Effizio 120mm Fan for the H70 Rad in push/pull config (2 in total)

2) Silverstone AP121 in silver with red LEDs (3 for intake and 2 for the top)

3) NZXT Hue

4) NZXT Sleeved Red Cables (24 pin, 8 pin, 6+2pin x 2, ect)

 

I would really like any thoughts on this!!! Thanks!

The static pressure on the air penetrators is only around 1.7 but you can find 3+ on similarly priced fans. I believe corsair makes sp120's with red LEDs. They are loud but if you get the pmw fans you can control them. The non-pmw come with a voltage step down adapter that makes them quieter.

You also might want to check the 290 series of cards if you haven't already.

Do you think the Silverstone AP's are beter than the 2150 Gentle Typhoons? I was going to get 6 of the GT's for mine if I was not happy with the performance of the stock fans.

This gentleman's test results showed that Silverstone AP's were best when it came to directing air over a particular part of the case. I figured with the way the 540 is set up these would be the most logical choice.

The Silverstone AP's have a fairly low static pressure compared to other brands.

Same with the efx-12-15 fans. I can't seem to find anything about their pressure, which is what you want for radiator fans or any fan coming against a filter.

I have not used those exact GT fans, but I've used a TON of the the AP's, including like 37 or so in my STH10, they are really great fans, I've never had a bad one yet, and I've used close to 100 total, they don't spin anywhere as fast as the GT2150's, they are closer to the AP14's in speed, less CFM than the AP15's, but I believe higher static pressure. Overall a great fan and I would highly recommend them.

Really what I am looking for is the best fans to put in this case to get the best cooling performance. I am going to this case because my current case can't cool my 2 video cards properly.

Yup - which is why I went with the SilenX as my CPU fans.
 
Again, the link I provided showed temperature results with these fans acting as CPU coolers. They outperformed my current Geild Solutions fans, too.

On a second note can you fit 38MM thick fans on the the front and top of the 540?
