someone needs to make a right angle adapter for the motherboard 8pin/4pin power. if it was angled straight down, it should clear that 12mm. most boards and rad/fans should then fit i think.

Things you like, things you think could be better - all this stuff helps us with our future cases. We've gone from 2 cases at the beginning of this year to 7 cases now, and we have a lot of plans to extend the product lineup into new and interesting areas. Nothing is off the table.
So every post on these forums where somebody says "make the cables shorter" or "I like the way the side panels fit" or whatever helps me make 2012s products that much better.
300R:

Front panel audio cable should be 1½/2" longer to accomodate those using onboard audio...as the majority of ATX MoBos locate the audio connectors in LLC.

Front panel USB3.0 cable(s) should be 1½/2" shorter as the majority of the connectors are located RCC, and molded into a single unit, or at least combined with a center rib -both for cable management purposes.

Additional zip-tie recesses to facilitate backside cable management...particularily around the backplate cut-out.

Replace the included 3-pin fans with 4-pin versions -for those looking to take advantage of PWM functions -with stock equipment.

The chassis-mounted PSU dust filter sleeves tend to rattle as is...not sure if this will be a source of vibration/noise with (the) PSU mounted. Hasn't been here.

Remove the purely decorative hex-screws -along with the necessity to mold their recesses- from the front panel and apply the material/manufacturing cost-savings to a necessary improvement, such as simple dust shields for the top and side fan locations.

Question: Will an additional HDD/SSD cage eventually be available through Corsairs online store for those with multiple RAID arrays and who don't want to resort to using the 5 ¼" bays?
____
I've gone from a Thermaltake VA8003BWS Armor supertower (air-cooled, which I've used for 6+yrs/multiple re-builds) to the Corsair Carbide 300R (mid) with no regrets.

I was concerned about heat with the switch -as the TT had 2 additional i-cages for a total of 3 120mm front-mount intakes- but so far ambient and at load temps are similiar if not better/lower with the new chassis with identical internals (the single front Corsair 140mm relocated top-rear as exhaust and replaced with 2 CoolerMaster R4 140mm intakes, rear 3-pin Corsair 120mm exhaust replaced with 4-pin CoolerMaster R4 120mm), and this new config is noticeably quieter.

Is it that critical that you can't use pull fans? I plan on getting an H100 soon to throw in that top cubby with push fans only. I'm hoping thats a huge upgrade from a 212+.

Can I be in the club?

I just got this case, I love it. My next upgrades will be to get the arctic cooling freezer a30 for my cpu and some white nzxt fans for better airflow and aesthetics.

(Sorry for pictures, there was bad lighting and it was my gs2 and I am no photographer)

I love the cable management in this case.

these rubber grommets u got from where?
post #1488 of 4610
^
One grommet fits all.
Note to all 300R owners interested and unclear...these grommets -along with the cable-management channels that they fit- are standard, the ones used in the Obsidian series also fit the Graphite and Carbide series -and vice versa.
If ordering, go with the ones for the 800D/700D, as it includes 10 large and 3 small grommets and costs the same as the other kits -which don't include as many. That way, you'll have spares for whatever purpose... barter/trade for the coming Apocalypse?

The small ones can be used -if you work at it- in both the front panel cable and 8-pin ATX power pass-thrus/channels.
