Pros: Quite with all fans in place Runs cool Works perfectly with the following hardware: HeatSink and fan - N82E16835103108 Ram - N82E16820231797 850w PSU Case - N82E16811129180 EVGA GTX 980TI Superclocked ACX cooler Two areas for SSDs that don't need to be mounted in the 3.5" bays
Summary: This is a great case for the price. Sturdy, plenty of room, good built quality. Comes with two fans: a rear 120mm and a top 140mm fan which I think is a great design choice (my previous case had a top 120mm fan and it was a bit too loud). Both fans at low speed are acceptably quiet.
Summary: If you don't need all the flashy lights etc. & want a heavy old school & well built case then the Antec Three Hundred Two is the answer.
Pros: This is my 3rd Antec 300 case. My last was the Illusion with 3 blue LED fans (2-120's Front & 140 Top) This is my favorite case of all-time! I paid short money after rebate ($50.00 with $2.99 Shipping) It's heavy & solid. It will fit most mid-high end GPU's length. You still get 1-120mm rear & 1-...
Cons: Not much to complain about. The 2.5 SSD bracket isn't the best, but I purchased a 3.5 adaptor for this for $5.00 & all is well.
Summary: This is my third build since 2008, and that being said I wish I would have just built with a variation of this case for all of those builds. This was easily the most painless case I have ever used to build a computer with. There were no headaches, and I was up and running in a couple hours.
Pros: Nice looking case with a solid feel to it. It isn't garish, nor flamboyant. Neither is it gorgeous or slick. Its black, efficient, and simplistic with useful "to the point" attributes. Extremely quiet with the two included fans on low, more so than my old pc case with "dampening cloth" installed,...
Cons: The mounts for the ssd were a bit troublesome to get situated. I wish I would have bought a PSU with more SATA power connectors, in retrospect.
Summary: I'm glad my mind was changed and went for a case that cost a little more than my original plan for a case. money well spent in my mind.
Pros: The biggest pro i can put on this case compared to others I have worked on is that this one by far is the most thought out at ease to work with. It has everything i want/need in a case and even has dust filters. and i do like how the front panel pops out easily by pushing in the tabs and has the ...
Cons: The only and I mean only con I see with this case is that one of the 2.5in spots are in a weird position to where you need to mount one before the motherboard. This is not a big deal at all to me but if you plan to switch drives around from case to case get an adapter for the 3.5 slots or put a d...
Summary: I hope that someone from Antec is reviewing these comments because one additional hole in the plastic rails won't affect the functionality of the rail and will pretty much solve the issue with the smaller adapters. The case has two holes in the top of the case towards the rear of the unit.
Pros: The case has a bottom mounted power supply. If you mount the supply the way that it was intended then it will draw cool air through the filter on the bottom and then expel the hot air out of the back. The case has cutouts so that the power cabling can be hidden behind the motherboard making for a...
Cons: The second 2.5 inch mount can not be used without removing the motherboard. The disc mounts behind the motherboard and the only way to access the screws is to remove the motherboard. This makes the second 2.5 inch mount impractical to use. The plastic brackets that are used to lock in the 3.5 inc...
Summary: Have owned Antec cases from back in the day since the 40lb. SX800/830 that came with a 300w ps. And before that. Don't remember the model number Always great airflow and ez to work on.
Pros: I don't know about these newer cases. The two I do own are 4yrs.old and have 4 120mm fans and a 140mm top hat come stock. Good air flow and front filter to keep an o/c Qx9650 and 2 4870x2's in cf cool back in the day. Still use 'em. Looking at one now for a new build.
Terrific mid-tower case with a lot of room for a great price!

Summary: After buying a GTX 970 and having to take some metal shears to the steel cages inside my old case to get this behemoth to fit, I decided to get a new case. The Antec 302 computer case is awesome.
Summary: Very pleased with the service from Action Packaged Inc.
Pros: Good Mid-Tower for the build I was doing. Product shipped from Action Packaged Inc. and was delivered on time well before my other components with out issue. I even received an email from my order manager at Action Packaged Inc making sure everything was good.
Summary: Ive used many good cases in the past, but if I were to design a case by taking all the things I like about all of the cases ive used, this would be the case I would choose. Everything Ive ever like in a case, this one has.
Pros: I have built many computers in the past 8 years, and this is the best case I have ever used. Simple, very roomy, easy to have clean wiring, extra case fan behind cpu, front usb 3.0, the HDD drives are side ways (personal preference). no annoying lights,
Cons: These could be cons for some, but I think they are all pros. (personal preference) Bottom mounted power supply, sideways HDD drives no side window. Again, i think these are all pros, but you might not like them.
