Just got my Corsair 300R and found out Corsair doesn't bundle the USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter with the case, only with the 400R and up frown.gif Second time I have bought a case and run into this issue.

Anyone pick up the 400R and have no use for the USB3.0->2.0 internal adapter?

EDIT2: Got my system up and running. How are my temps? http://i39.tinypic.com/14e2bdl.png

That is not a valid temp check. rolleyes.gif

You need it under load showing either all four cores or a "package" temp.

I have one and I'm also in Nor Cal. If you're not too far from San Jose I can just give it to you.

Finding a value case to replace my CM elite 430, came down to Corsair 300R and Fractal Design core 3000. Leaning towards this a little more because of its look.
I'd prefer the upper front fan to be unrestricted, without the HDD bays blocking the air flow..but that is fairly okay to me.. Does anyonw know if a 140mm or 120mm fan can be installed between the HDD cage and the optical bay? As in here: 351

Also my motherboard doesn't have a internal usb 3.0..and i heard that this case doesn't include a usb 3.0 to usb 2.0 kit, so that means i can't used the usb ports, and have to get a adapter of some sort?
I actually have a USB 3.0 card that fits into the PCI slot, but took it out because i don't use it.

Thanks for the offer, but I live in Singapore..probably the other side of the globe where you're living. I don't really use the usb port much, mainly to charge my iPod. Guess i'll have to stick the the PCI usb 3.0. Once again, thanks for the offer.

bah. if you change your mind lemme know. it'll fit in a padded envelope, a small 1
kinda sucks because corsair sells the adapter in the screw accessory kit and its only $5 but even here in the US it cost $10 to ship

Are there any 300R owners who need a left side panel (with the fan mounts)?

Want to trade? I need a plain one. tiredsmiley.gif

Yes, both 120 and 140 fit at all three levels.

Hi
I'm thinking about trying to squeeze one of the new xspc ex280 rads into the top of my 500r case. Its 36mm thick, and will require a case mod. I've seen that people have gotten the ex240 in there, but it would really help if anyone has any pictures. Specifically what cuts were made, and which bits bent.
Thanks for any help.
