Awesome, practical case that could be a little bigger
16 June 2015
Summary: The 300R is an excellent case that fit most of my needs being big enough to fit what's important and small enough to not be monstrous in my office. In this review I'll mention where the case excels as well as the problems I had with it.
Summary: Nice case. Easy on the wallet. Sweet style. Many options. I am happy with my choice, though for my main computer I would choose something with a bit more refinement.
Pros: Expandable, this case has mounting for fans everywhere. 300R has all the features we have become so used to. Removable drive bays, space for thick non-ribbon PSU cables, mounting room for hydros. Good case, great price, white power LED looks slick.
Cons: Light weight, front panel wiring feels cheap, lots of holes for fans can make case loud if many cooling options are used.
Summary: Had issues with cable managment, I doubt it was the cases fault, the Mobo might of been too big or cables not long enough. The case is meshed so has quite a bit of air flow. For the price it's very nice.
Summary: This is a great case that has a few minor problems which could be overlooked by many builders. Corsair sells a grommet kit for the 350D that will also fit this case perfectly, go spend a few extra bucks and make your cable management look nice.
Pros: Excellent case for the value. All black interior, good quality feet, stylish design, great airflow and cooling arrangements for the most part. Can mount six 140mm fans (+ one 120mm exhaust) that'll move a ton of air without a ton of noise. Ample room inside the case to work on installing parts, e...
Cons: The front intake fans' main filter is permanently attached to the front plastic bezel. To clean it, you need to remove the bezel, then painstakingly pop the metal mesh screen out by bending these little tabs 90 degrees until they slide out of their brackets. What moron designed it this way? The l...
Summary: It has enough room for a lot of stuff, and enough fan slots for my taste, as well. However, the front cover breaks too easily. I barely hit it and one of the latches broke. Nothing visible, though.
Summary: The case is what I expected, except that I figured the Power Supply came with it. It doesn't. Guess I didn't read deep enough. Had to take one from another box that was no longer going to be used. The case is large and airy.
Pros: need more room for those graphics cards? hard drives getting in the way? this is the case for that. i really like the two vents on the side because they were placed right in that sweet spot so in case you have crossfire or SLI, you have the option to put two fans on the side and cool those cards....
Cons: the hard drives install only one way which means the ports are always going to be on the other side of the case.
Summary: I original bought this case as a temporary case for a fast budget build. Well here I am with all the upgraded parts and still using this case. I cannot find a reason to not use it. It is a light weight case that has plenty of room for an extended video card.
Summary: For starters, this case is great for airflow with plenty of places for you to add fans. This case also offers slots for cable management, so you don't have cables all over the place. The case looks nice, but it does feel a bit cheap. The metal is thin on the sides.
