AnandTech reviewed both the 200R and the 300R with the same SSD drive (Kingston SSDNow V+ 100 64GB SSD).
The SSD runs much hotter inside the 200R drive cage.

Look details at the post #13:

Guys wanted to ask that , you know the Carbide 400R front 2 intake fans are connected to a 2 in 1 fan connector and to a molex connector right ?
Basically like this

http://www.acousticpc.com/images/cables_zalman_multiple_connector__zm_mc1.jpg

But only the Carbide 400R one it's only for 2 fans.

Question is , if i plugin my fans into this connection , it will be running at 100% speed ? I can't tell for the original Carbide 400R fans , they seem silent , maybe they runs at low RPM , i plan to get new fans , i worry they be running at 100% speed if i do such thing , if they do , i have to find an alternate way before i buying the fans.

So i plan on buying the H220 for my 400r. I don't really know how i want to configure it. I have a lot of fans, fully decked out the every fan slot in the 400r. But obviously it's a bit loud and i want to cut that down a bit. I thought the H220 would be a good choice.

This is just a quick photo shop picture of set up for the 400r with the h220. Let me know what you think! or if anyone has any better ideas! i plan on extending it to another 140 rad and a gpu block much farther down the road.

are you not better using the rear fan that you have as an exhaust aswell and then use the cut out you have at the bottom of your case next to the psu as another intake. i think that way you would have good air flow come through the front and straight out the top and back.

ok yeah that seems like a good idea. thanks!!
