Summary: This is a great basic case with an excellent cooling design. It is very quiet and keeps my system at or around 20 - 40 degrees centigrade (depending on load). It also has very good cable and space management. Installation of hardware is simple and straightforward. I'll buy another one of these cases if the need arises!
Antec 302 is a Big Improvement over the original antec 300 Case
30 September 2013
Summary: Being a lover of the original antec 300 case (did 4 different builds in them) I had to give the antec 302 a try. PROS: **Mini ITX, Micro ATX, Standard ATX Compatible **Easily removeable side panels and front bezel **Mounts for 6 x 120MM fans (2 front, 1 side, 1 rear, 1 behind mobo trey) and Mount for 1 x 140MM (top) **Fan speed switches on back of case for included rear 120MM fan and top 140MM fan **Watercooling Ready Rubber Gromet holes on top of case **USB 3.0/USB 2.0...
Summary: I like this case a lot, very spacious and even has a bottom loaded power supply slot. I take off one star because it came with no physical installation manual, only a website to go to that had documentation as a .pdf
Summary: I've had a couple Antec cases over the years, and continue to purchase them for their value. In this case, I was looking for something to hide in the closet as a media server. The Antec Three Hundred Two seemed to fit the bill. Lots of slots for disk drives, and plenty of vents for cooling, including fan mounts in front for blowing across the several hard drives. Adding those fans alone dropped the temps of my drives ~5C.
Summary: This case is of quality design. Pros:Tons of space lots of hard drive bays removable filters, front and psu Enough spaces for cable management solid aluminum with minimal plastic elevated rudder feet cons: one of the ssd's has to be installed before the motherboard. i love that this ssd is tucked on the backside of the case, but hate that you have to remove the motherboard to install it. my case had a small black streak in the paint that just didn't match the rest.
Summary: I prefer building my own computers, this way I can put the $$$ where there needed the most. Out-of-the-box computers have no or little upgrade room. The only issue I had with this box is the 2 120mm case fans that come with it. They dont offer much circulation at all. I replaced them with Thermaltake fans. Much faster yet very quiet. The case can hold 4 120mm fans for plenty of circulation. Never spend less than $10-12.00 for a fan.
Summary: Good case, plenty of space, easy to open, nice cord control, power supply on the bottom for cooling purposes. Only problem was that I didn't have the proper connections for USB3 on the motherboard that I bought, so the front jacks don't work.
Pretty good, but not perfect (especially ssd mounting)

Summary: I bought this case in November 2012 for about $58; items I installed include a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Z77 motherboard, an MSI 670 graphics card, a Corsair CWCH80 (120 mm fan) CPU water cooler, an optical drive, a 3.5" hard drive, a 2.5" SSD, a Corsair CX600 PSU and three additional 120 mm case fans (one venting behind the motherboard, two blowing into the case on the front).
