Looking for a new Mid-Tower Case

I currently have the CM Storm Stryker and would like to move down to a mid-tower. Right now the Corsair Carbide Air 540 is looking pretty good to me. Major concerns: at least 1 5.25 bay, space for Kraken X60, space and airflow for 7990.

Current Components:
ASUS maximus VI Hero
Intel i7-4770K
Kraken X60 Liquid Cooler
AMD Radeon HD 7990
16GB Gskill Sniper RAM 2400 Mhz
(2x) Seagate Barracuda 2Tb in RAID 1
(2x) Kingston v300 120Gb SSD's in RAID 0
(1x) Intel 520 300Gb SSD
EVGA SuperNova 750W PSU
LG 24x DVDRW

  1. The Air 540 is a nice case but also collects a lot of dust. Get the Fractal Design Define R4 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008HD3E6Y. The R4 is a pretty amazing case with noise dampening padding, built in air filters, and support for 240/280mm radiators.

    I've go two Fractal cases, the Define Mini and the Node 304 and I will say that Fractal cases are nice to work with and very quiet.

  4. I think the r4 is a gorgeous case, but I was worried there wasn't enough airflow for the 7990 and that I would just end up dumping lots of heat into the case that I couldnt get out

    It's deceiving that way. :) It actually has plenty of airflow.
  6. the define R4 isn't supported for the Kraken X60 according to NZXT's compatibility guide
  7. I am wanting to go with an HAF XB evo and a Kraken 60 at some point. Something different and it can fit on a shelf of my PC desk. :D
