Case Build and Finished Product
We were quite pleased with our final results, as we were able to pack in quite a bit of gear. Even with a Micro-ATX system and a radiator with push/pull fans on it, we still had no issues fitting in a normal length GPU. The best thing is, with all of this gear in the chassis, there is still ample room to work in the Air 240.
The back of the chassis fills out well with the PSU off to the left, the dust shield in the rear I/O opening, and our cards in the slots. We would like to stop here a moment to discuss the failure of this swing cover they used. The holes are not threaded for screws, and even if they were, they are too close to the chassis wall to use anyways. The swing plate barely holds anything, and we ended up using a zip tie to try to secure the GPU.
From this angle we can see the cabling we used all bundled in the bottom left corner. There is still room for the 2.5" drive cage we kept, and there is plenty of room to get the 3.5" rack back in, but we chose not to. There are some wire management tabs available to help here, but we didn't end up needing them with the amount of wiring we had to deal with.
As we were getting everything back together, we stopped to look into the side window. It is pretty easy to see the majority of the gear inside, but this chassis just screams for interior lighting so it really showcases the hardware inside.
Whether you decide to use it as we showed it, invert it for a right hand side window, or opt to have the window face up, is all up to you. We do like what we have here, and we think Corsair will have no issues selling the Carbide Series Air 240.
While this image is typically followed by a powered up image, the only changes that occur when the chassis is powered is that the power button will glow white, and the HDD led will flicker white too. As for noise level, the fans supplied are low speed, low noise variants, and are only audible when very close to the chassis.
