i ordered my corsair carbide 540 white yesterday but today i realised i was going to have a few cosmetic & practical problems with this case :
- DVD drive is black in color, ill have to make it white or its going to be ugly with the fully white case. Does anyone know what paint i could use to make it match exactly with this case?
- Fan controller : i need to find a vertical fan controller, i dont want to hold my head at 90° every time if i want to read or adjust something. Anyone knows such sort of controller? Preferably digital , and if it uses 2 bay slots then thats fine, ill just mount the DVD inside the case then.

I like it so far. ME is one of my favorites.

So quick question. Pardon me if this has already been asked and answered but if you are cooling with a 280 rad what fans are you all using. I have been reading for days in this thread and couldn't find it. I thought I saw it earlier back on route 99 but I was mistaken.(a little car humor forgive me)

Thanks
Andrew

Interesting concept. I personally have never seen a fan controller in that orientation but that def doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Many people have used non digital fan controllers and it seems to work alright for them. However you could always flip this on the side and use a digital one then (if you attach some feet to raise it off the ground a bit). However someone before had used cable extensions for their fan and put the fan controller in an external bay so that can mount it/place it wherever they wanted which seems like a really nice solution.

Anyways I got all these nice sexy packages from amazon and newegg this week so over this weekend I plan on putting my new machine together, will be posting pictures tomorrow when I start setting it up biggrin.gif.

I picked up a NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller which I'll be using in my Corsair Air 540 case. Since it doesn't have any digital readouts, it will be easy to use and should fit in nicely.

If you want a digital readout one, I don't think you will have any luck with a vertical orientation frown.gif

Hi guys, yet to get the air 540. But wondering has anyone tried following config?

3 fans intake front, 2 exhaust top, 1 exhaust rear. And try to attach 2 more at bottom as intake. Using nh d14 and 2x290 crossfire. The goal is to push as much air into the gpus as possible
post #5830 of 12460
Questions for owners:

  • Is there only HDD places next to the graphics cards on the bottom of the case? Nothing on the PSU side? Are these the "hot swap bays" mention in specs?
  • If it has a dust filter in the front, why are the fans included AF series and not SP? You want static pressure when restrictive filters are involved, right?
  • What material are the side panels? Front and top looks plastic.
  • Anyone have pics of a bare frame with everything stripped off? (for future cosmetic mods)
  • Is there any holes to mount a fan on the PSU side? Wondering if I could get some airflow going on there for extra HDDs.


I'm considering this case since its dimensions allow me to shove it sideways in a rack and I can use long graphic cards without worrying HDD cages to be in the way. I'm going to need a minimum of two 3.5" HDD space and not sure if I'll migrate the older two HDDs also.


EDIT: found this build in this gallery where you can see a stripped frame:
