Corsair Carbide Air 740 High Airflow PC Cube Case Review

Corsair Carbide Air 740 Mid-Tower Chassis




Instantly, due to the wide stature of the front bezel, we realize this is nearly two cases glued together. We love the horizontal bars across the face of the mesh and are also digging the odd angles here and there. The finish is matte, and cleverly houses the front I/O components on the right side.





On the edge of one of the horizontal trim lines, we find the power button. Between a couple of the bars, just a bit lower, we see the rest button, USB 2.0 ports, HD Audio Jacks, and the LED light switch. We also notice there is a cover panel installed, but at this time have no idea what might go there.




The same styling has been taken to the top of the chassis, where we find the same bar system used to cover the mesh. Both the front and this top panel are removable, which makes fan mounting a breeze.




The left side of the chassis is shipped with this large clear side panel which opens from the front and is supported by hinges. The top and bottom bars of black are also part of the door and simplifies the thin gap around the panel as it meets the front bezel and top panel.




The left side of the back panel offers a few slots and holes around the mesh area, and can be used to mount a reservoir. Below that, we find the location for the PSU. The right section starts with some mesh at the top and just below are the rear I/O area and the exhaust fan. This leaves the eight expansion slots and the section of mesh to be at the bottom on this side.




The right side of the case uses a panel which clips along the front, just behind the front bezel plastic. The panel is flat, and only gets broken up by the mesh area at the bottom. This allows for a fresh intake of air for the PSU, and we can see a bit of tape holding a magnetic dust filter in place. The front edge, near the bottom of the panel, is where we found damage, and you can just make out the fold line of the metal side.




Even the bottom of the chassis gets more of the thick bars that run side to side. The floor of the chassis is open and does allow for fan mounting, and as such, the entire plastic cover is removable to clear the way for screws in the fans. The feet seem small of r the size of the chassis, but the rubber pads kept our Air 740 solidly in place.
