Many of you may recall the Corsair Carbide Air 540 as the head-turning case from CES 2013. This was thanks to is double wide design which was, at the time, typically reserved for custom-built extreme liquid cooled cases. Well Corsair is going to stick with their guns on this design choice and has released a new Corsair Carbide Air 540 is snow-white, just in time for the holidays!
While still a mid-tower in height (18 inches (457 mm)), the Air 540 is a stout 17 inches (432 mm) wide giving it a cube-like appearance. This allows for some unique use of space allowing it to support up to extended ATX motherboards, radiators up to 360 mm, and graphics cards up to 12. inches (320 mm) in length, all at the same time. This is not something your standard mid-tower case can pull off.
The Carbide Air 540's double wide design also allows you to control the temperature zones and keep everything cooler. The power supply and primary 4 bay HDD cage are on the right side of the case away from your main heat sources. This improves the life of HDD and ensures the air coming into the left side is not being "pre-heated" by your mechanical drives. The left side also has an over-sized window to show off all that PC horsepower.
I also want to throw out there that this could be the perfect base for a Companion Cube case mod. Just saying.
With the new addition, you now have the color options of the original black and silver with the new white color. And best of all, it looks like the you can still find the Corsair Carbide Air 540 in white for as low as $110.99. Full press release is posted below.
