Corsair carbide air 740 atx cube case, high

Corsair Carbide Air 740 is a larger version of the £125 Carbide Air 540 that is taller, wider, deeper and comes with a cosmetically different front panel. Carbide Air 740 has a hinged main door with a huge clear side window that shows off the innards of your new PC for the world khổng lồ admire.

This is the key to the Carbide Air series; you have two chambers with the motherboard, memory, graphics và CPU cooler on show in the main chamber while the power supply & storage drives are tucked away in the rear chamber along with most of the cables.

There are two new features in Carbide Air 740 that deserve sầu some mention, although neither is likely lớn make you rush out to buy a new premium case. The first is the front blanking plate where a VR-friendly HDXiaoMI pass through will go, once it is made available by Corsair. And the second is an LED lighting button that can control the new Corsair HD1trăng tròn RGB fans. You have sầu to think of these as neat touches rather than a fundamental change of direction.

The bigger question is how you use all the space that is available inside the Air 740 và we cover this in some depth in our video clip. You could simply use an All In One cooler along with the three 140mm fans that come with the Air 740. No doubt that would suit Corsair perfectly well as they sell that type of cooler, however it seems a bit lightweight khổng lồ our way of thinking.

Packing in a bunch of extra fans could look good, especially if they have LED lighting, & would remain true khổng lồ the Air name. There is a snag with that approach as you need some way of connecting up the fans, such as a hub or controller.


More importantly, you don’t get a người hub or controller. A high kết thúc motherboard may provide five sầu tín đồ headers. However, this case supports seven or eight fans, depending on the kích cỡ of the fans (two 140milimet at the front or three 120mm), và you need somewhere to connect them. The obvious solution is a tín đồ controller in the rear compartment yet Corsair has not seen fit to provide one.

The second-most obvious solution is an after market controller that slips in a 5.25-inch optical drive bay, such as NZXT Sentry 3. The problem here, as you will have sầu spotted, is that there is no optical drive sầu bay. Corsair appears lớn have been on a mission to kill the external drive cất cánh for some time and here they have succeeded. The point here is that you may indeed install a large number of fans but quite how you will connect them is a bit of a puzzle.

Installing the main components in the case is a doddle as the Air 740 supports a motherboard up lớn E-ATX, with graphics cards up to lớn 370milimet in length & a CPU cooler up to 170mm tall. To make life even easier, there are six large cable management grommets sitting between the two compartments to help you keep your build neat và tidy.


To put this case through its cooling paces we will be using a test system consisting of an Hãng sản xuất Intel Core i7-5820K, Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury X & an SSD. This system allows us khổng lồ produce a substantial amount of heat & effectively demo the Corsair Carbide Air 740‘s cooling capabilities.

For găng testing we use AIDA64 lớn create the maximum heat output khổng lồ áp lực our CPU and GPU.

Nonetheless, this case looks khổng lồ us like a natural candidate for a custom loop, in which instance you can expect lovely low temperatures. Corsair provides a decent number of storage drive bays, but no optical drive cất cánh, & could really improve this mã sản phẩm if they added a bạn hub.

The only snag here is that Carbide Air 740 is so large that it is crying out for a custom loop & Corsair cannot provide you with that hardware. No doubt Corsair would say this means you have sầu the choice of Corsair All In One, Corsair fans or some other make of hardware và that makes them jolly generous, và it is hard to lớn disagree.
