Thanks to Corsair, we’ll be taking a quick look at the Carbide Air 240 Micro-ATX chassis (Arctic White Edition). This chassis will be used as part of our PC project build for 2017 – A Corsair sponsored build.
Full size ATX chassis or midi towers are great for most PC builds. However, we wanted to build a PC with a smaller footprint, that can offer enough power just like any high-end system. A powerful PC in such a small size means excess heat could be an issue. So we needed to look for a micro-ATX chassis that offered enough space and air-flow. There was only one real choice that came into mind… the Corsair Carbide Air 240.
The Corsair Carbide Air 240 Micro ATX Chassis is designed for users who want to use a micro-ATX or a mini-ITX motherboard, with the need for decent air flow and options for customization, as well as watercooling.

It will be interesting to see how all our components will fit inside this chassis. Let’s start by taking a look at the specifications and features of the Corsair Carbide Air 240.
