Summary: I like everything about the case so far. the "complaint" is that no matter how far I push in the power button the pc won't turn on. I have to open the side and remove the front panel and push the switch to turn it on. not a huge problem as the system rarely gets turned off, but it's still an inconvenience.
Pros: big case work lots of room two quiet fans included "toolless" install mostly looks pretty freakin cool front usb 3 area for cable management.
Summary: I was not able to flip the case fans around to change the flow of air due to binding issues. Once I re-installed the fans back to factory default location they worked as designed. There could be a bit more room by offsetting the internal hard drive rails to allow a bit more room to fit power / SATA cables that have stiffer connectors.
Pros: This is the second of two Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX mid tower computer cases I have picked up over the last two months. This computer case was easy to setup, good cable management for the price, cut out on tray for back access to CPU for folks installing oversize CPU coolers. The snap in / screw less mounting of the rails seems to work fine.
Cons: What was missing was the instruction guide. This did cause some issues dealing with the secondary support bracket for the motherboard PCI cards. Once I figured out I had to remove that plate to install the video card the rest of the build was easy.
Summary: This case by far is the best case iv'e had in a long time, the one i upgraded from looked great, but had very poor air flow and it cause things to be slightly on the toasty side, which I didn't like. If your on a budget but need more more airflow in your computer i would say get it. Still waiting to see how it fairs in 90 F or higher weather this coming Summer will update, if i can.
Pros: Lovely black case. Wire housing to improve air flow. Many fan in/outputs with the option of water cooling. USB 3.0.
Cons: Adding more fans may increase the noise you get from it. The metal used to make the case feels a bit on the cheap end.
Pros: Decently priced case, tons of room for cabling!
Cons: I ordered this thinking i was gonna get a Antec Three Hundred size case. This new model is significantly wider. the SSD mounting on the bottom of the case is in a weird spot and you will have to force your sata cables into an almost 90* bend configuration. if you have low quality sata cables this could be a problem.
Summary: Aside from having to drill a new mounting bracket into the case for my board this was everything I was looking for and fit all the parts without issue. There is a mounting fixture to attach a fans to the side panels which I may not ever take advantage of, but cooling seems to do well enough just from having the mesh in those sections. Antec served me well in the past and I'm happy to say it's working great again.
Summary: This is my third Antec case. I have a 900 I got 5 years ago and still love. I bought a 300 for my brother 4 years ago and liked it. I needed a solid case for a HTPC in the bedroom and wanted good cooling and quiet operation.... Well as quiet as possible. The 300 has been very well upgraded from what I used 4 years ago. I like this a lot! *Great cable management. The drives slid in sideways and are tool free.
