[Official] Corsair Carbide Air 540 Owner's Club +Gallery - Page 625

post #6241 of 12549











Finally got my 540 to what I am some what happy with. Still need to sort out cooling in it to get it whisper quiet.
And yes, I do have a lightbox in there as you can kind of see from the first picture. Managed to persuade the guys over at Coldzero to make me one!

I'm not sure everyone that likes to do this but you can actually do this

You just remove the dust filter.
He could drill holes moving the top rad away from the front rad (as well as the motherboard to possibly fit push/pull on top as well)
e) never mind, you can't as easily move a 280 as you could a 240mm rad.

Did not even think about putting the fans in between the cover and the brackets. The image of the case I have in my mind I couldn't remember if there was enough room or not but that makes sense, I will look into that.

And I would lose the 280 for a 240, keeps the fans matching, and will still provide more than enough cooling even if you added a second card, plus, there are way less issues fitting the 240's with a 360 concurrently.

I will replace the 280 for a 240. I was thinking why not try and put it up there for the extra surface area but with the possiblity of major fitting issues I will pass.

Removed, yes. Swapped, yes, but only if you put the same thing in their place, it's not a "standard" spec item.

You would need to remove the whole hotswap power/data assembly and provide both a power and data cable to replace it. The SATA cable itself is not replaceable from the unit. If it's just to have a blue colored cable, I would use blue electrical tape and cover the cable myself, or use blue sleeving.

The HDD's are pretty much flush with the case and you wont see the connections there at all.

I think I found my way of turning up my fans without a fan controller or the NZXT grid
