Has anyone with a 300R, or other case that uses them ever had the metal tabs that you have to bend in order to remove the grill to clean the dust filter on the front snap off?

I removed mine for cleaning yesterday and the metal looked like it was on it's way to snapping, and I've only removed the grill a maximum of 4 times so far as the dust filter gets covered in dust quite quickly where my PC is located.

I don"t bend the pins back on my 400R's front panel. I just flex the filter and pull it out.

I saw a guide to removing the HDD cage on the 400R a few weeks ago. It involved removing rivets and taking off the top of the case. Does anyone else have a link to that guide or another guide?

Removing rivets is easy -> drill

I removed the 3.5" HDD cage from my Antec 300 when I was 13, you should be fine

yes. no real filters come on the case. it has mesh/plastic on the front and nothing on the side panel. the white model has a mesh on the top panel as well.

by mesh he means, look at a microwave oven door. see that black film with holes punched in it to let you see inside ? THAT is what corsair calls a 'mesh filter'. almost totally ineffective at stopping dust. it stops a little but lets in A LOT.
most of use an air conditioning filter foam.

the $6 deal. the $3 product is smaller. you can check sizes when you go pick it up. i bought a sheet by 'ducky' for like $5 at wal-fart that measures 24inch x 18inch.

I'm ordering a window for my 500r, what are the right dimensions to replace the mesh with a window?
It may have been asked before on this thread but I really searched for it and couldn't find it smile.gif
