This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 300R Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Formal and modest
USB3.0 connects directly onto motherboard, not through the back panel
Plenty of room on the inside, and tidy cable management.
Included fans are very silent.
Easy installation bays work well, and dont vibrate.
While the side panels on their own can feel some what flimsy, the case as a whole feels very sturdy.
Cons: Putting just about any 5.25" drive into the top bay will block off use of the forward top mounted fan.
Getting the front panel audio connector to connect on the opposite end of the MB was a bit of a stretch trying to use the back side for cable management, but if CM isn't you're thing, its not an issue.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that the scores and assessments made, are done so in accordance to this things price range and market. Its the lower end model, and thus it was reviewed as such. That being said, if you catch it on sale, it is indeed a great buy.
Also, the forward fan thing isn't really that big of a deal, unless you're the kind will pay the extra amount of money to over clock and get a ridiculously high end GPU, but if that were the case, why bother buying the bottom end case? I guess what I mean to say here is, think about what you're buying and what you're after before you make the purchase, and you wont have an issue with this case.
Pros: You get what's advertised and what you pay for, what more could you want?
Cons: As a USB extension? None.READ FULL REVIEW
