the side is silent and the front are too. My HDD's made more noise

I'm more and more annoyed with the 300R lately. It's so cheaply made.

I've had it for barely two weeks and the slide panels (...) require three hands to close properly now, or you have to lay it on its side and use a whole forearm to slide the front of the panels up snug.

(Honestly the Antec 300 is way more solid. Too bad it's all hacked up from practice mods.)

I've had it for barely two weeks and the slide panels (gawd) require three hands to close properly now.

why? o.0 I put some grommets and leds and mine looks sexy

Maybe I have a crappy one but fitment is a problem all over the case. My OCZ PSU has to be pushed/squeezed to get the screws into the back, the front fan blades hit the panel filter if you bump the front (these are 120x25mm) and both side panels have corners sticking out if you don't get help closing them up, or like I said, unless you lay the case on it's side.

Also the left side panel has a corner sticking past the bottom left as if it's simply too big.

Oh, and I forgot about having to press the motherboard back into the I/O shield to get the first couple of screws in. No biggie, but it required more force than should be necessary. All this would piss me off if I had paid any more than $55 for it. tongue.gif

thats true...should went for the Arc Mini. Thats my next case

I actually like the airflow setup of the 300R a lot. That's what should redeem it, once I'm done messing around inside of it.

Hopefully one day someone can make a case without so many drive cages. I think one SSD, one HDD and a USB optical drive is all anyone should need. thumb.gif

Well I have a little over 1TB of software and media. SSD's are probably not the best idea for mass storage IMO.

Well there you go. I think mini ATX or even mini ITX are the way forward for air cooled cases. I hope one day we look at stacks of drive cages and laugh.
