i know someone will hit it right be it lian li or coolmaster. i'm just not feeling that 540 like that. but the build is super.


i was at another forum and a lian li guy contacted me on facebook asked me to check out that pc-d600.
Dude, you just messed up big time.
Lian Li is from Taiwan not Korea, no idea where you got your idea from. Also CoolerMaster is also founded in Taiwan

But here's my opinion between the 540 and the d600

PSU is on the wrong side, the case is too shallow. No top mount on the left side either

why would you throw the parvum s1 into the mix? It's a mATX case. Different game

Here's my thoughts of the 540 as well

Hopefully Corsair will bring a lower-end one to market. I can't stand the fact that it only has 2 HDD bays and 5 SSD bays .. Jeez, make them SSD mounts on the case instead of on a toolless tray. That's a dumb idea
There should be some filter and fan mounts below the DVD bay ... wasted opportunity to mount HDDs further back but this filter and fan mounts can cool HDDs and/or install WC rads which is one why anyone wants space
Having a second fan intake chamber can allow for some clever ducting or the fact that you can install a rad there and not have the rest of the computer breathe the hot air from the rads and have the left chamber intake cold air
In short, they should have had the left chamber to install a rad + fan on the bottom without any HDD mounts there (Ruins the neat look unless you bought RE drives) and the right chamber to install HDDs (SSDs go onto the motherboard tray!) and rads + fans
Frankly the DVD bays (Should not be so tight on the next case!) should have been 3 bays instead of just 2 bays. It's my opinion but seriously people do want fan controllers + 120mm fans there. All these small touches will instantly sway me towards buying a Corsair product for the first time! (If they come to the market with it first)

WHY i'm not buying into the 540. Switch 810 costs only 10$ extra and is much larger MUCH MUCH larger

Well I was interested in adding two systems to an Air 540, but the PC D600 is far higher quality (and cost) but has much more room for two whole ATX systems in one case, off to get mine on Friday !

Just need to order a Lian Li BZ-U08B 5.25" USB 3.0/Power & Reset Button Panel and a pair of Lian Li PT-AF12-1B Fan Mesh Guard - 120mm.....

How on earth do you add two systems to either cases?

The easy option is an MITX server and HDD's ( Corsair), or for the Lian Li - the other is to hi-jack the Mo-Bo tray from an old case and hack the 3x140mm fan grill out of the rear....

HTH

P.S. Being able to take a 3 x140 rad in push pull in the front and a 2 x 120 rad in the roof is plenty of cooling - stashing a H80 in the "rear" chamber isn't too far fetched either.....
