      I built this a little over a year and a half ago, and it's been absolutely awesome.  This is my third personal build.  Initially i had ordered an MSI 280x, but i had sold it (i did not like the quality of that brand) and purchased a used Gigabyte Windforce 290x, and it's been great!  The case was definitely a lot larger than i had anticipated, but nonetheless, I love my giant mini fridge.

            Very nice build there! I love the Corsair Air 540, I have been mulling over getting one myself since it seems like it would be a better case for my setup. I am currently rocking a ThermalTake Core V31 which is a very nice case but I've ran out of room in it fast. Also since I'm running a crossfire setup I think my setup would highly benefit from a case that separates the mobo from the PSU & SSDs/HDDs. Is the Corsair Air 540 setup like that?

                yes the Air 540 is set up so that the PSU cabling and SSD drives are separate from the HDD/Motherboard/GPU, but i am not sure if you can place the HDDs in the back or not.  You can still easily fit those cards in this case though, but the case does take a ton of space on your desk so be careful.  I would also check out the smaller Air 240 which does the same thing in a smaller space.
