Water cooled Corsair Carbide Series Air 540

Hello OC3D,

My attempt to watercool Corsair Carbide Series Air 540.

Specs:
  • good old i5-750 OC-ed to 4.2Ghz 24/7 1.36V
  • gtx 670 asus direct CU II 2GB boost clock 1100MHz
  • ASUS P7P55D-E Deluxe
  • Kingston Genesis 4 x 4Gb @1600
  • Koolance 380i, EK GPU block, bitspower fittings, 3 x Alphacool ST 240, Swiftech 655 PWM drive, XSPC D5 res combo, masterkleer 16/10 UV blue











As kindly requested by TTL below, the cables are done. Well, probably not super tidy, but more or less tidy.

Haha, as soon as I saw those cables on the back side I was wondering if Tom had
already stopped by and mentioned them.

Anyway, I'd say this is a pretty good start. Aside from the things already mentioned,
maybe consider getting rid of those copper Alphacool stickers on the radiators? I love
copper, but together with that blue they just look a bit wrong.

the first thing i thought about when i saw the unboxing, was thats a great place to hide the res.
Nice job at least the main view is tidy
loving the blue piping too
