Ok so I've got most things installed and set up. I have the fan for the side panel still to install but I will do that tomorrow as I need to find a fairly long piece of wire to use and a neat way to route it around from the back..

The only alight issue I have is that my motherboard seems to think the headphone jack is the mic jack and vice versa. It isn't really an issue as I've just swapped them around in the audio control panel but I was wandering whether the issue is because of my motherboard or the jacks actually being the wrong way around.

Also I will post some pics tomorrow once I finish everything off as it's a bit too dark for my crappy phone camera now wink.gif

My acrylic for the side panel mod should arrive tomorrow. Doing the 500r.

Any suggestions on how to do the edge of the acrylic (The point when the acrylic joins the metal)?

This seems to be a common occurance with the 300R - pretty sure you can just swap the cables behind the ports to fix it (no idea if mine has this issue as I don't have them hooked up)

Most of the early versions have this problem. Mine has it. I never bothered to fix it, but it is easy enough. The case's headphone jack is static free, which is rare, so I'm just going to leave it as is.

The Havik 140 would fit the 300R.

I don't know about other heatsinks higher than the Havik 140 (height of 166mm) that also fit the 300R.

Thanks smile.gif I guess I should just go ahead and order the nzxt cooler then. Haha I got a little worried because the new corsair 200r specs on the corsair website is actually bigger than the 300r yet the write support of coolers up 160mm

Well, I've never heard about the 200R before your post. LOL

Right then, I've taken a few pictures of my 300R. They aren't the best photos in the world but they're better than if I'd taken them on my phone thumb.gif The IDE ribbon cable lets the cable management down a bit and I could really do with some grommets but they will have to wait. Also I've switched the headphone and mic jacks around so that is sorted now.






If anyone was wandering the little wire that is hanging next to the rear exhaust fan is for connecting the side panel fan as I blew one of the tracks on the motherboard for the chassis fan header and haven't bothered fixing it as I might make it worse.
