Bars between the grills may be considered functional since they protect the mesh from dents, but they are primarily aesthetic. The ultra-glossy acrylic window is a pure visual delight.



Front-panel ports are located at a convenient height for both desktop & floor placement, as long as your chair sits low to lớn the floor. A mystery panel beneath the two USB 3.0 ports and headset jacks hides nothing of interest, although Corsair does địa chỉ cửa hàng a somewhat-interesting LED switch next khổng lồ the audio jacks.



Around back we find a few 80mm tín đồ mounts—which Corsair never bothers to mention—in addition khổng lồ eight expansion slots, which allows builders lớn place a double-slot graphics thẻ in an ATX motherboard’s bottom slot. That extra slot means the Carbide Air 740 is large enough for an XL-ATX motherboard, since it’s also deeper than ATX internally.



With 13.1” of thẻ clearance behind the fans and a flat motherboard tray that extends all the way khổng lồ the front panel, the Carbide Air 740 is, in fact, large enough internally lớn hold a full EATX (13” mounting depth) motherboard. Of course it doesn’t have all the holes for a fourth column of standoffs, but most of the enthusiast-class boards that receive an EATX label are far too shallow lớn reach that front column of standoffs. Its additional passages offer easy cable access with oversized motherboards installed, but the lack of an EATX label is certain lớn create arguments between in-the-know builders with 10.6”-deep boards & know-it-alls who argue that because of the labeling, this is not a proper EATX solution.


The Carbide Air 740 includes a pair of 140mm fans, just lượt thích its smaller 540-model sibling. It’s added height provides room for three 120mm fans, with added space on đứng đầu to make room for overlapping top-panel & front-panel radiators. Only the front panel gets a true dust filter, with remaining fans relying only upon the case’s screened mesh fan hâm mộ grills for dust control.


If top và front radiators aren’t enough to lớn suit your needs, another radiator can be fit on the Carbide 740’s bottom panel. Lượt thích the top, it"s drilled và slotted for two fans in both 140mm and 120mm sizes.

Like all of the other outer panels, the Carbide Air 740’s base slides off after removing two thumb screws. Panels aren’t interchangeable however, due khổng lồ the case’s asymmetric fan mounts.

The Carbide Air 740’s Other Half

Corsair avoids any complaints about the space behind the motherboard tray by putting the entire power supply back there, along with a couple drive racks. Power supply depth is virtually without limit, since we’ve never seen a PS/2-derived unit that approached the case’s 14” internal depth.


A three-drive tray behind the front panel holds 3.5” drives upon silicon-damped pins and provides screw holes for installing 2.5” drives.


Four more 2.5” drives can slide into a mount above the nguồn supply, to be secured via large plastic barbs.


A bracket along the Carbide Air 740’s bottom can provide additional security for a power nguồn supply, although none of its positions aligned correctly with our test unit. Perhaps it’s designed instead around the dimensions of Corsair’s power supplies?


The Carbide Air 740 includes several tín đồ and radiator screws, in addition to lớn the screws required for motherboard and drive mounting.


The Carbide Air 740 skips the messy AC-97 audio adapter in favor of a tag-free HD Audio connection. Its power LED cable is split to tư vấn both ATX & AT-form-factor motherboards: In case nobody got the joke, asus reverted to lớn legacy 3-pin spacing back when most cases still had AT-style solid 3-pin nguồn LED connectors.

The Carbide Air 740’s layout looks a little unusual, but the motherboard and power supply screw in as they would in any traditional design. Several inches of space surround a standard ATX motherboard.
