For those looking for an option ill take a pic but...I found thin 120mm dust filters and since I have my fans pulling air into my case going through the rads and the rads are in the case with no pull fans...I attached the dust filetrs to the rads which are like 3-4mm thick and very untoiceable but clean looking and they capturs dust but don't hinder the air to much allowing the fans to do their thing..


only downside is if let it build to much it will start to back pressure the air back into the rad but just don't let them get caked lol

Hey guys I just joined this forum when I found this thread. I am going to order the air 540 with my next paycheck to upgrade from my old haf 932.

I just had a couple of questions I wanted to ask before I got the case.

1. Is the cooling for the GPU = or better than the haf 932? I have an Asus 780 dcuII. And was planning on getting another one and I wanted to make sure they stay pretty cool.

2. I was going to switch out my CPU cooler for the h100i or h110 and wanted opinions on which people think is better for this case?

3. I wanted to install 3 sp120s in the front is there a way to hook them all into a single fan header? My mobo only has 3 in the front and I'm going to need at least one for the aio cooler fans.

Those are the only questions I have for now but I am so excited to get this case! I love the form factor and the full size window to show off my rig! And I want to add an nzxt hue to add some color

Hi, I have 2x Asus gtx780 DC2OC cards and am getting temps of around 63-72c bottom card and 73-80c top card during a game of bf4 this is with 2xAF140 fans in the front, I've ordered 3x120mm fans to replace the 140s.
I have the H110 cooling my oced 4930k and have no issues :-)

I tried to find the post with a quick search, but I'm on a mobile phone and couldn't search too thoroughly. If I find it later I'll edit this post to include a link. I'm pretty sure it's at least 200+ pages back though, if not further.

I found this in his work log: http://www.overclock.net/t/1420389/build-log-the-foobox-wc-air-540-and-2700-threads/20#post_21008737 For Sketchup
Don't have anything installed to open with right now.

Hi guys,

First, sorry for my english :/

I want to change my Noctua by a watercooling. But I don't want "home watercooling". I prefer try my first WC with AllinOne Kit.

NZXT Kraken X60
seem really great, but I read ( here ! ^^ ) than it's not compatible with Air 540 ( PS2 port of Motherboard are too close of fan's kit, and push/pull is impossible, you can install radiator only :/ )

so I have 2 options :

- to install radiator front of case. But is it possible ? In Watercooling, the pump need absolutely to be below the radiator no ?

- buy another WC Aio, like Corsair H100i, but feedbacks are mixed.... ( many of problems with pump's noise, or kit die in 2-3 months )

what is my best option ?

Thank you, and good night !

I looked at the SKP file after getting a newer Sketchup file. Think I have enough info on the measurments but got me thinking on another issue:
The PSU side's panel has some perforation for PSU fan air intake. If I tip the case so that this side will be down, will there be enough air intake for the PSU? There's some holes in the back but not sure how close to the side the PSU is installed.

Hey thanks for the quick reply! And those temps are pretty good and I bet they would be even better with the new fans! I can't wait to get the case and move my build into it!
