Wide load coming through, Carbide Series AIR 740

At 426x340x510mm (16.8x13.4x20.1") the new Carbide AIR 740 looks like a double wide and there is a reason for that.  Corsair have separated the drives and PSU into a secondary chamber, going so far as to mount the PSU vertically.  The design also gives you more than enough room to install radiators in a number of locations inside the case without impinging on any other components nor will you have issues with even the tallest CPU heatsink.  [H]ard|OCP was impressed enough with the case to give it the Gold, though they would have liked to see a fan controller in an AIR series case.


"Corsair is back with another cube type case this time in its Carbide AIR series. The model AIR 740 is a big steel case that has a big footprint, and along with that comes a spacious interior that will lend itself to just about any amount of hardware you want to install and Corsair has its sights set on excellent cooling for all that hardware."
