Thanks for the picture!

Just when I thought I was settled on the Fractal Arc Midi, Corsair goes and adds a window... I was stuck between these two cases, and now am again... The window is very sharp looking, this looks a lot like the 650D but for a good bit less thumb.gif

yea this case is a tiny bit bigger than the Arc Midi. I personally prefer the Arc Midi because of the exterior, rubber grommets, better dust filters and the fact that it has more hard drive bays inside. it is a tough choice though because the side window is nice and you can add good filters to the 300R. it is a cheaper case as well. the Xigmatek Midgard II might win over both for me though. It features are comparable to the 500R, but it's about the size of the Arc Midi/300R and is selling for $70. whichever way you go you'll get one of the better mid towers available at $100 or less. thumb.gif

The Midi seems to be the best quality of the bunch, with he features you mentioned, but it is also a good bit wider at 9" which is nice for cable management and my 212+ CPU cooler. I read though that the 600T grommet pack fits this case, so that's not an issue.

I am glad you mentioned the Xigmatech case, its sharp looking, but narrow and don't think it will accept a big cooler.

You are most certainly not alone. The 400R/500R have been relegated to rough prototypes now. Corsair has pumped out several new cases on the same basic frame that have all the features (side windows, competent dust filters) that the 400R/500R lack. Kinda sucks tbh. The side intake for the 500R is crazy for dust and the filter that comes on the front of the case is terrible. The 500D and now the 300R have two things both the 400R and 500R really need to be updated with. Selling a case for $140 with crap fans, crap filters and nothing on the huge side panel opening is sort of ridiculous. I'm mostly satisfied with my 500R, but it seems some careless oversights were made. I imagine it has a very nice profit margin per case.

No, you're not, for sure!
At page 162 of this thread, GhostXT solve the problem his own way and it's really cool.

it looks like he just took the mesh out and put a window in the same size instead. is it the right way?
