Issue with 3.5 slots and rails

Virgil B., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • 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...

Love the case

Loyd Livaudais, Amazon
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Love the case; it keeps my system cool and quiet BUT I note that NOWHERE in the product description or Antec's own user manual does it specify that the included 2-speed fans use (a) 3-pin connectors (b) cannot be controlled by a Mobo that has Pulse-width (4-pin fan headers) fan control.

Good bare bones case

Vince V., Newegg
5 January 2015
  • Summary: This case is an excellent value, however, be aware that there are only 2 cooling fans with the case so beware of cooling issues with some processors. Antec does not seem to make a 3.5" adapter for the 5.25" drive bays, so if you are installing a device that needs to accessed externally you'll need...
  • Pros: Good looking metal case. Very sturdy and lots of room inside. Items easy to get at and install. No flashy lights or gimmicks. Used to build NLE/Video Capture computer.
  • Cons: 2.5" drive bays do not leave a lot of room for wires to attach to devices, especially the one on the side. There is no adapter for 3.5" devices in the 5.25" drive bay. I needed to order an aftermarket adapter to get a multi-card reader to fit.

Nice and Sleek

Christian S., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Pros: This is a wonderful case, I bough it to replace my Antec 300 with no USB 3.0 No ugly LED lights, no ugly colors, smooth and flat design in the front. I actually have one of these in my Entertainment center stand in my living room sideways, it blends in, and no one ever points it out or sees it. I...
  • Cons: Cleaning up a tower this size will take time and effort.

Excellent, very roomy case

Mr. BBQ, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: Very roomy, easy to work in case. Having the power supply at the bottom actually makes it more stable with large supplies (I'm using 1000w). Plenty of room for long graphics cards, and the sideways mounting of the hard drives gives you more options on which way to run the cables.

Awesome case

John D., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: This is my first real case. Was building out of an old Compaq case before this one. If I had to compare the two... The Three Hundred Two is like packing the trunk of roomy SUV, while my old case was like trying to stuff a whole loaf of bread into a rusty soup can...
  • Pros: Lots of building room, many HDD bays, very nice cable management and it looks freakin' cool to boot. I especially love the tool-less design of the drive bays. Very clean.
  • Cons: Not really a con for me, but the case may be a bit bigger than the preview pics let on. Also the reset button is pretty small, but that may be on purpose so someone doesn't accidentally bump it maybe? What does irk me about this case though is the blue power LED is a bit intense, which sucks when...

Inexpensive, Love the Cable Management

Jon M., Newegg
16 July 2014
  • Summary: Knocked off a egg because I had to scrounge around to find one more motherboard screw. Otherwise, I like the case, especially the cable management feature which keeps my build clean and neat. 2 case fans included seems inadequate if they call this a gaming case.
  • Pros: Inexpensive; USB 3.0 front panel inputs; spacious for a mid-tower; neat cable management; CPU back access for water cooling plate.
  • Cons: Not enough motherboard screws included - only 8 included and 9 required for ATX board, come on Antec! Only 2 case fans.

Large Case, Begs For Lotsa HDDs

ROBERT W., Newegg
1 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a Top 3 Case for users that need a lot of hard-drives - Fractal Arc Midi R2 allows drives to be inserted 'in' or out making a much easier drive-SATA-Cable maint routine. The CoolerMaster N400 has the old-style drive-cage but it has such substantial spacing that drive-maint is an ease.
  • Pros: I maintain dozens of these among users, all max-filled with HDDs and this case gives those the most spacious spacing between drives, allowing the best air-flow from the front-mounted fans. Substantial construction.
  • Cons: Substantial construction also means "heavy" and "large", which can be a negative for lugging around. The case's drive-bays don't allow drives to be flipped for inserting - you can only install HDDs 'cables-in / nose out' which means to work on HDDs, you must pull the case out and remove both pane...

good case

W. Mills, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Overall this is a good, solid case...though I expect no less from Antec. I have two builds with their 900 case(my favorite) but when with this one for my wife's system due to the cat sitting on top of her case.
