Hi my fellow casemodders...it's Kier again
It's time for a new build with the beautiful Corsair Carbide Air 540.
Saw this case for the first time at some pictures from Computex 2013. And think it has a lot of potential
A good looking case with numerous possibilities for air cooling and watercooling ofcourse.
Time to think of some nice ideas and cut it in pieces.
Still have some hardware laying around for this build, which of course may change in the future of the build.
