On a lightning deal so be quick. One of the best looking cases imo.

The unconventional design of Carbide Series Air 540 utilizes dual chambers to deliver cooler air to your CPU, graphics cards, motherboard, and memory without your drives or power supply getting in the way. The included custom Air Series AF140L intake and exhaust fans provide great airflow performance at lower noise levels than typical case fans. And, you can mount up to six 120mm or five 140mm fans, with 280mm top radiator support and room for a 360mm radiator on the front panel. Like all Corsair cases, Carbide Series Air 540 is designed for fast, neat, and satisfying builds. The tinted, oversized flush-mount side window lets you show off your work.

For a case that's all about maximising airflow, it only includes one dust filter, for the front intake. That's an inexcusable oversight, really.

Might be easier to overlook it, though, at this price.

​Did you think logically about it? My case, Define R4 has one dust filter on the front and one underneath which isn't used. The front fans are for intake therefore can intake dust. Other fans should be for exhaust. I Have a 240mm radiator on top for exhaust and there is no dust from them because it's all stopped from the start with the front intake dust filter.

Mine's like that and plenty trapped in the filter but still has dust inside.

​Dust will always get through a filter. As for the amount inside the system. it should be very little.

Yeah was a lightning deal last night. Anyone know how I can expire it? Or does a mod do that?

I was lucky to get this chasis even before it was released in this country, and its the best I've ever bought. And I can honestly say no dust enters through the bottom of it. I perchased dust filters for the bottom of the case and it turns out that it was a waste of time. Whenever I give it a clean there is only dust on the front filter, and that's where it should be. The case doesn't intake air from the bottom.

...as someone who has just replaced an Air 540 build, I can completely verify this comment as correct. I've had the case since it was released a few years ago, and no doubt about it, the cooling is incredible. Amazing intake potential. Sadly, however, the case is a DUST MAGNET. It is the sole reason I replaced it with another case (Bitfenix Prodigy M).

Anyone considering getting this case, bear this in mind. Unless you buy a specified set of Air 540 dust filters for 90 pounds (available online), you will be cleaning the dust out of your case every few weeks.
