1 out of 5 eggsTrash

Pros: Big Case.

Cons: Although big, I could not fit this within the case: seidon 120v push pull setup.
4 Out of 5 of the Drive bay clips broke within a year and would not stay in place anymore.
The case scratches very easily.
Some of the case fan wires were bad on arrival- 3 of my fans in the case aren't spinning that did in my old build.

Other Thoughts: Very Trashy computer case not worth the money. If I HAD to buy this case, I would say this case is worth $40 tops.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks good, needs some fixing though.

Pros: This is one clean case. It looks great and definitely holds parts... for the most part.

Cons: I have a smaller factored ATX motherboard. Z97 anniversary. With this motherboard and case combo, the outcome isn't the best. I couldn't fit my Corsair H75 inside, it was too cramped inside because the CPU socket is set too far left. I couldn't even fit it with one radiator fan. It sucked. RMA'd that beast. The CPU back plate cut out in this motherboard needs to be bigger in order to compensate for smaller motherboards... Was planning on overclocking but that has been set back.

Other Thoughts: Do your research (should have done that on my part) and this case will be good. With a full sized ATX motherboard, you shouldn't have that problem at all.

2 out of 5 eggsCase is good but beware the rebate

Pros: Good case, solid build. Would be 5 stars if not for their failure on the rebate.

Cons: Rebate would not work. Kept saying that it was not valid for this country. Double and triple checked my entries but it would not go through.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to advertise and sell a product claiming a rebate make sure it will actually work.

3 out of 5 eggsSlight problem, otherwise a good case

Pros: The case looks nice and has two great dust filters. The included fans have been reliable so far and I can't complain about the internal layout, which is spacious and easy to work with.

Cons: I purchased some AeroCool Shark 140mm red LED fans for this case, and soon after installation I noticed a scraping sound. It turns out that the fans were scraping against the intake filter.

I 'fixed' this problem by using a few pennies as shims to keep the front filter away from the fans. I really wish the design engineers had given 2mm more space to the fans. I admit to being disappointed with Corsair.

Other Thoughts: Why is this a problem in a modern computer case? Good grief.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: All the parts fit.

Cons: Extremely plain, and cheaply made case, inconvenient usb locations, power button is very poorly made. Case scratches easily. Not worth the money.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the price, there are plenty of better cases out there that are worth the price. A computer case is a case you will have a life time and shouldn't skimp out on it. And even at this price this case is not worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Usable with Options

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsMinimalist but not functionless

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, even with large graphics cards and CPU coolers. Plenty of space to run cables behind the motherboard for a tidy appearance. Tool-less drive assembly feels very solid - can't say the same for comparable offerings from Antec or Cooler Master. Build quality seems good, the plastic front bezel has a texturing effect that makes it look like brushed aluminum, which is neat I suppose.

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 little side filters on either side of the front bezel just slide right out. DEMCIflex makes magnetic filters that stick onto the outside of the case and they have a set specifically for this 300R, do yourself a favor and get some. As other reviewers have indicated, if you install a 140mm fan in both of the top positions, you may not be able to install an optical drive in the top 5.25" bay. I don't know who actually needs more than one optical drive in this day and age, but some people like to keep them in the top and if yours isn't a very short one it'll need to be moved down to the middle or bottom bay. Cable routing slots aren't grommeted. Blindingly bright white LED behind the power button.

Other Thoughts: 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.

It's not as nice or well-equipped as the Vengeance C70, but it is significantly smaller without being overly cramped when you're installing parts or doing upgrades, which can be very nice in its own right. If size isn't a factor, however, I would compare this 300R to the C70 carefully and see if the price difference is something you can stomach.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case With Great Ventilation

Pros: This case has been great for my build. I bought a major brand PC on sale then moved most components to the new case. The case has great ventilation and is very quiet, I have 4 - 140mm fans top and front and run them at 40%. It has plenty of room for hard drives and SSD's. The blue LED fans show through the mesh and looks great.

Cons: As one reviewer stated, if you mount a 140mm fan in the top front location, you can't mount a standard optical drive in the top slot. I just put the optical drive in the second slot and installed the much shorter fan controller in the top slot.
The other issue I had was that the USB3 slot in front would not work. Sent a ticket to Corsair and they quickly sent a new front panel. The USB3 still would not work. I called Corsair and upon my request they agreed to send a USB3 to USB2 adapter and now the front USB ports work, but as USB2. That's OK because I don't have any USB3 devices and if I do get one, the back USB3 ports work fine. I am not taking any eggs away because I believe that it may be a problem with the MoBo not the case. Although the USB3 worked on the other PC, its USB3 header cable was 16" long and the USB3 cable on the Corsair is 27" long. One of Intel's docs states that the USB3 header cable should not exceed 18". No other reviews seem to describe this issue.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is an excellent case. I would like to have rubber grommets, but if that is really important I could have just bought a more expensive case. I am not a gamer and don't use a lot of mega-watt components, so this case exceeds my expectations. I am very happy with the service I got from Corsair.
