Hi Just joined here mainly because of the owners club for the 540.

got tired of waiting for the H440 so got the 540, more than happy i did.

decided to go red/black themed with acrylic rigid tubing.

will post some kind of list / build log when i get time.... very happy with the case though, not completely finished yet couple of cables to install but getting there.... got a few good ideas from this site too so thanks guys.

apologies for the quality of the pic

Thanks very much all...

One thing I'm very happy with is the 280mm black ice stealth rads. I have no idea how they are going to perform but they fit well in the case with no modding required...

front one is in push pull (intaking to case)
Top one is just pull (exhausting)
Had to move the rear fan to outside to allow for the pipe run's.
My first attempt with rigid tube and i must say I'm converted it takes a bit longer to fit but is a lot neater than my old rig.

one tip with the rigid tube.... buy way more than u need ... lol:rolleyes:

Hello folks.

Just unpacked my shiny new white air 540 and noticed that there is no magnetic front filter included.

Is this not standard on all 540's?

I thought it was. I'd call Corsair's customer support and discuss this with them.

It should be. I have both the black and white version, and both have them. If you contact them, they'll ship you a free one, I'm pretty sure.

Jeebus. Yeah, the Gryphon would add the professional look that it's so blatently missing.

That's a serious Carbide temple right there.
