Hey guys, I was wondering which case you would recommend to purchase. I live in Japan and the cost difference between the 300r and the 400r is about 7 dollars. So far I'm leaning towards the 300r:

300r:
+ Smaller size to fit in small apartment (also won't make my matx mb look funny in it)
+ Arguably better looks
+Less drive bays means more room inside (I only have 2 hds and no optical drive)
-cheaper quality (no included accessories - really expensive for corsair to ship to Japan)

400r
+Includes with usb2 to usb3 converter (my mb doesn't have internal usb3 header)
+Includes Rubber grommets
+LED fans with LED controller
- Much larger size than 300r

I have been using the extremely small Silverstone sugo sg03, but the hot summers in Japan are too much for its cooling.

Any thoughts would help.

One other important +/- to factor into your decision would be future-proofing... which would lean toward the 400R when you consider its overall size -allowing you more options when it comes to water-cooling, not to mention its 8 expansion slots relative to the 300Rs decidedly air-cooled nature and limited 7 expansion slots.
____
That said, I'd still recommend the 300R for your needs.

It's a great little (and light weight) case and the teething problems with the first lot (front I/O panel wiring woes) seem to have been resolved with the latest shipment(s).

The more 120mm 1200-1500 RPM fans I try, the more awesome my Logisys seems. It's as good as an AP-14, honestly.

These days they go by the name Deepcool, and I think that 120 is being discontinued.
