Yea I'm rather interested in this case as a replacement for my old Antec Solo on my next build. Going to be curious how reviews look on this guy.

Still no rubber grommets for HDD mouting and building a gaming PC might be a problem with the airflow intake restricted to only one side of the front door and the small slit on the front panel bottom.

This case is not that impressing. If you want a corsair case that is quiet the 550d is where you should put your money. My last PC was an ivy bridge corsair 550d with an i7-3770k untouched and ran at stock (but did OC it to 4.5Ghz stable voltage and temp but it wasn't worth the extra heat making the fans louder) and a couple different GPU's, started off with an MSI lightning R5870 @ 980Mhz core 5010Mhz memory (left it OC'd as the MSI cooler did a wonderful job) then a Asus GTX 670 Direct CU 1010mhz core 1078mhz boost memory stock (for some reason this card didn't like it's memory touched) It also did an amazing job cooling and not being loud so the OC stuck.

Surprisingly (with the proper components and fan speeds the corsair air 540 can actually be very quiet. Because of it's exceptional ventilation you can run the fans at lower speed while still having very good temps. Since your temps lower and ventilation of cool air is all over the place the noisiest noise maker of them all, the gpu fan will run slower since it's temps will be lower and if you don't mind the gpu running in the 80's you can manually force the gpu fan much much slower than in other cases. With the proper tweaking and proper components you can make a nicely quiet corsair air 540.

Of course the 650d 800d and 900d super huge cases can also work but at those prices I would choose other cases for sure.
