Built my first rig almost 10 years ago. It seems like each case has something unique to it that I love, but doesn't have all the things I want/need in a case. This case however, has it all. No PSU visible, great cable management system, fan filters, easy to open, great viewing window, quiet (I'm using 6 fans), tons of room for a top mounted radiator (more on that later), cable port grommets, quick release HD bays, simple yet elegant design, minimal buttons on the front, color matched plates to block off the drive bays that most people don't use anyways, and finally, extremely affordable.
I absolutely love this case. I was drawn to the two cage design where I can hide the PSU and cables all in the back, and leave only the pretty looking hardware in the main display area. I am running 2 SSDs, one in front, one in the back, a regular 1TB HDD in the front, 3 fans for intake, 1 exhaust in the back, then two in a push configuration out the top for my H105 CPU cooler.
The H105 is thicker than the H100i, so I was apprehensive to whether or not it would fit. However, the top of the Air 540 has ample room for this thicker radiator (in the front as well). So if you are running a thicker radiator (I think up to 35mm, maybe 40mm with certain mobos), you will have plenty of room up top.
The case is pretty quiet and the front fan filter does a great job. Some dust does come in from the bottom of the case under the HD bays, but you can buy aftermarket filters for the bottom and back if you want -- I don't find it necessary. I am running SLi, and there's plenty of room for that. Very spacious. And everything you can't fit or don't want people to see, you can just shove it in the back :).
The black painted inside is really nice, but because it is kind of deep, it can get a little dark in there. So I picked up the NZXT 2-meter white LED strip and put it around the perimeter of the window. It lights everything up perfectly, and the length is also perfect for this case (see pictures).
I love this case!
