That looks great! Also has a nice look with those corsairs and without the mesh panels in. I hardly even noticed the bespectacled kitten.

I am looking into getting this case but one thing is stopping me right now. It says the maximum PSU length is 200mm, mine is about an inch longer than that. Is anyone here using a longer PSU than they say can be used? Thanks

You could put a larger PSU in the case than that you just won't have the corner brackets in place to hold one end.

I currently have a Corsair 400R. Due to a recent move I need to find a smaller case, and it looks like the 540 is the best choice. My only concern are the fans. How loud do they become while stressed out? I have a Core i5 and a EVGA 760 GTX. If it is loud does anyone have recommendations for quieter fans?

I have seen a lot of them opted for 2 x AF140 Quiet edition, replacing the two stock 140 in the front. Seems that they are liking the noise/performance ratio.

the stock 140er fans are lil bit noisy... now that i have installed the 3x120mm AF120 the case got really alot more silent as before.

you can actually put any length psu in this case and still use the brackets. though you may have to drill holes for the bracket.

I'm currently using the EVGA Supernova 1300w G2 without having to drill new holes, you should be perfectly fine.

Anyone here using a Coldzero Midplate for their 540 that might post some pictures? i've already sent an email to coldzero, just curious if anyone has one, or know of any others that do them, or even an illuminated version!
