After the frustrations of working with my CM Haf XB I am seriously considering buying a Air 540. The Haf-XB has no room to work below the motherboard tray. PITA I don't like having to remove my radiator and fans to change cables and get to the PSU. You guys have done a great job modding your cases.

Do it! I came from the haf xb to the 540 and was very glad I did. You will enjoy it, more room to work with but still a smaller case and it looks fantastic. be sure to post pics!!

Hi,

My brother has destroyed my Drive Bay Covers frown.gif

Can someone of you please sell me 1 or 2 Drive Bay Covers (black), if he don't need them.
I live in Germany, so someone from Germany or Austria would be good, so that the shipping costs are not so high thumb.gif
Thank you smile.gif

As promised not so crappy cellphone pics, sadly i just noticed one of my grommets are out of place tongue.gif gotta push that back in place

i also think im going to route that CPU Block LED to the top under the Mosfets and behind the 240 top radiator.

Took my case out for a look around it and took some measurements for watercooling & gpu fitment. Thought I should probably take a photo to prove I actually own a case camera.giftonguesmiley.gif

Nothing special, just a standard Corsair Air 540 with nothing fitted yet sadsmiley.gif

Just got the Air 540 yesterday afternoon.... managed to transfer most of the components from my previous case (Cosmos II) onto this one.
1377414_10152024049513736_231340000_n.jpg?oh=c5ecd973a1a2390e126c5587e5a2f629&oe=53210428&__gda__=1394700198_c6d795ab82a3c918b292c46aafce3c01

Liking it so far, especially the smaller size and it having a window. smile.gif

Haven't gotten the hot-swap bay to work with my new 840 Pro just yet, though... Will have a better look at it tomorrow. Getting a bit late over here.
