Corsair® Carbide Series Air 540

Service : Industrial Design

Release Date : 2013-04



Improving PC performance with a redesigned form factor

Drawing on an unconventional design approach, CRE8 DESIGN’s team made an aggressive attempt to go beyond the traditional look of a PC case and provide a completely different form factor that is visually striking and highly functional.

The cube-shaped Air 540 chassis, comprising two side-by-side chambers, substantially improves ventilation with a direct-airflow path. With detachable front and top grilles, which were inspired by the style of a 70’s vintage watch, the exterior portrays a hint of retro-futurism, while the solid metal mesh strongly visualizes protection of the inner components.

The grilles are magnetically attached to the chassis for easy removal and cleaning of the dust filters. Clever space-saving design offers ample internal volume for neat builds and provides the best way for modders to showcase their rigs through the tinted, flush-mount panel window.

Drawing on CRE8 DESIGN’s color recommendations, Air 540 is available in two color schemes: a sophisticated black unit and a high-end special edition in metallic silver. 

With the design of Air 540, CRE8 added yet another unique case form factor to Corsair’s ® Carbide series.
