Corsair is taking the wraps off two brand-new chassis at Computex 2013. Filling out the mainstream Carbide line are the Air 540 and 330R models, designed for high airflow and low noise, respectively.

For the enthusiasts, the Carbide Air 540 is perhaps the most interesting of the two, as Corsair has implemented a double-wide design that prioritises front-to-back airflow above all else. The extra width enables Corsair to locate the PSU, hard drives, and airflow-restricting cables behind the motherboard and out of the way of the air being funnelled by intake and exhaust fans.

Here's Corsair's George Makris with a detailed video walkthrough of the Air 540's non-standard design and features.

What do you think? Do you believe the concept is good enough to provide superior cooling to high-end chassis? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the HEXUS.community.

I like.

Would like to see more details.

I do like that these cases have a particular focus though.
Too many cases are a jack of all trades and a master of none.
Looks good but I will wait and see whether the claims he makes are achievable in practise. The support for liquid cooling is impressive.
Looks good, im due for an upgrade and if this releases quick enough i very well may consider it
