Carbide 540 Question


Recommended Posts

On the product page it says:


Fan Mount Locations:

Front: 2 x 140mm (included), 3 x 120mm (pre-spaced for radiators)

Top: 2 x 140mm or 2 x 120mm (pre-spaced for radiators)

Rear: 1 x 140mm (included) or 1 x 120mm


How thick can the top and front rads be?


I'm currently looking to do a WC build with this case and was wondering if I could fit a 280 up top and a 360 on the front, both 80mm thick.


Specifically Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Triple 120mm and Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Dual 140mm.

You will not be able to fit the Monsta rads in the Air 540.


On top you can fit a single thick rad. With a 280 you will only get a single row of fans. With a 240 you can do push/push pull.


For the front, with a 11" card, you can get a 50mm thick rad with a single row of fans. If you dont mind losing the dust filter or make one that is a little thinner, you can put another row of fans on the front under the mesh panel.


Quickly threw some rads in a system for reference. A XSPC EX280 on top and a Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 in the front. GPU is a reference Titan card.

Awesome! thank you for the pics COOL GUY ;)

Do you have any 120/240/360 rad?

If you have any of them, could you test if it fits on the front, with the barbs on the bottom? (using the lower 120 fan mount)
