Also better go and edit the club title in my sig now tongue.gif

Obviously it's a matter of opinion but I believe the 200R has a few more features than the 300R. IIRC the 200R has more clearance at the top and side so it can fit a H100 without any modding and can fit larger CPU coolers, other than that they're still very similar.

The 200R is listed 160 mm of height for the CPU coolers.
I guess the Hyper 212 (159 mm of height) barely fits the 200R.

The 300R has enough clearance for the 212.
I've heard the Havik 140 (166 mm of heigth) also fits the 300R.

Strangely enough I've just been looking at what coolers will fit in a 300R and have discovered exactly this. On one site I saw the clearance on the 300R quoted as 170mm, which is definitely wider than the 160 of the 200R. tongue.gif

I guess it all depends on where you're measuring from and if everyone else measures for the same place.

I have also discovered that the clearance on the 200R is quoted 165 mm by AnandTech instead of 160 mm quoted by Corsair. LOL

Well, I don't know how accurate is the clearance listed by AnandTech for the 200R and the 300R.

The AnandTech claims that the NZXT Phantom 410 has clearance quoted as 170 mm.
But I've heard that The Thermalright True Spirit 140 (height of 170mm) doesn't fit well or almost fit in the 410.

There's a feedback by an owner about this issue:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-094-NX&tool=3

Anyway the 300R seems to have better clearance for heatsinks than the 200R and the clearances listed by the AnandTech maybe at least close.

I do not intend to modify this case.
Although saying that, I opted for the 200R mainly for its looks. I much prefer the sleek elegant design of the Fractal R3 and the 200R over any other case available right now, and would happily butcher the inside of either case to make anything fit, provided I could maintain the exterior looks lol

My only quarrel with the 200R is that my DVD drive is a slightly different shade of black. Oh and that I cant use the front USB ports :|
