Excerpt: Ever since Corsair entered the computer chassis market with the Obsidian 800D, it has been generally pretty succesful. In addition to the Obsidian series, Corsair also introduced the Graphite, Vengeance and of course the popular Carbide series.
Conclusion: Overall I do like the Corsair 300R, it’s a great looking chassis and offers just enough features to suit the needs of your average user, but it’s not without a few drawbacks. So lets quickly get a few minor issues out of the way first.
Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review: Corsair For the Masses
29 June 2012
Conclusion: I've normally been pretty skeptical about Corsair's cases in terms of their thermal performance. Assembly has almost always been a breeze, and cable organization has seldom been an issue, but when crunch time came around they tended to linger in the middle of the pack.
Excerpt: We at TechwareLabs have always been a big fan of the Sleeper: a Car or Computer case that seems stock but under the hood hides some serious muscle. So when we laid our hands on the Corsair Carbide 300R Mid-Tower Chassis we excited to put it through the labs.
Conclusion: In short Corsair has done it again. No matter what the product category and no matter what the price tag, they just seem to know how to make a great product. The Carbide 300R sells at $90 and manages to pack a lot of features to that price tag.
Pros: Cable routing, Plenty of optional cooling, Dust filters, Black frame
Summary: Corsair delivered the Carbide 300R to me and at first I was thinking this is just another budget friendly case that has something missing that was the easy way for a manufacturer to save a few dollars.
