Corsair Carbide Air 240 Arctic White Micro-ATX Chassis Review

External

The chassis looks pretty neat and compact and measures 397mm x 260mm x 320mm in dimensions. It’s also surprising light-weight, weighing in at only 5.6 kgs.

Mesh grilles are found on the front, top and bottom panels, which helps with air-flow. 

Only the main frame of the chassis is made from steel, while the removable sides, top and bottom panels are made from fairly decent quality plastic.

 

Internal

The side panel with the window does look good, however it’s made from plastic, which is fine for most users. For me, I’ll probably leave it out 😉

Also included are 2 x 120mm fans in the front of the chassis, and 1 x 120mm at the top. You can remove the front 2 x 120mm fans and fit a 240mm radiator for anyone who wants to do a bit of watercooling.

There are a total of 6 slots for cable management … that’s more than any chassis I’ve seen. I guess now there’s no excuse for bad cable management!

The chassis designed for micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards only, so just to remind you, it will not fit a full-size ATX motherboard.

 

Closer Look

If you take the right side panel off, you’ll find a removable bay for 3 x 3.5″ hard drives. There’s also a removable bay for 3 x 2.5″ hard drives, which is accessible by removing the top panel off.

For I/O, there are 2 x USB 3.0, mic-in, audio-out, power button and reset switch. It should be enough for most users, however I would have been great if they included a USB-C port.

Depending on the orientation of the chassis, you’ll find a magnetic dust guard on the bottom, which I really like.
