Hi all,

As I cant get the new 540 Air due to it not fitting my desk I'm looking at alternatives

Is a 350D too small for air cooling, I've read the 650D isnt to good at air cooling so I'm wondering if the 350D is even worse as its smaller

Idealy I'm after a decent air cooling case for one GPU so prefer M-ATX but really want something that has a plain look to it, like the 350D/650D so any recomendations are appreciated

The 350d looks like it would be pretty good at aircooling from the info ive seen with google, Im considering swapping to one from my tj08e.

The airflow seems pretty good. Can't take tall air cookers though, only upto 160mm.

I have a TJ08-E too, that's pretty good for air cooling though the gpu doesn't get a huge amount of air...

The parvum is more a watercooling case but very nice.

Personally im waiting for the prodigy M..

Doomedspeed where have you found out it can only take up to 160mm?

I did have the hunt the internet for several mind-numbing seconds to find it:

My plan would be corsair 100i in the top as exhaust, 140mm on the front its at the right height for the gpu and 120mm at the back both on intake. All the fans would be Akasa Apache Blacks :)

You can fit two 140mm fans in the front of the Corsair 350D :)
