Does anyone own a Corsair Carbide 540 Silver case?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about either getting the Silver version or wait until the White version comes out. What I'm wondering is, does anyone have the silver version and how is the build quality? Is it just a layer of paint? What is the silver portion made of?

Also, I live in Canada and I want to know if there is any way other than pre ordering it from NCIX to buy the white version.

Is it solid plastic or more like rubber coating?

There it is.

My camera sucks, but the case is nice. Its not cheap looking stuff like some of you may suspect. Best way to describe the silver is like metallic paint similar to car paint sprays.
