I opted for the 200R over the 300R and Fractal R3 because it looks a damn sight smarter. It also packs the same features for a lower price.

200R comes with two fans, which aren't bad at all for OEM 120's; can also fit plenty of other fans and large water coolers. Its certainly a worthy contender against the other cases you mentioned.

Actually the 200R comes with 2 fans (front and the rear mount locations).

Look my rig, I'm an 300R black with side panel and the 212+ owner.

Honestly the stock fans aren't great but they're very quiet.

I've had used the case with the 212 and only these stock fans for weeks.
Then I added more fans but the board, GPU and the HD were fine even using only these stock fans.

The temps are:

Asus Board 26 C
Seagate 2T 7200 rpm SATA 3 31 C - 34 C
GTX 560 idle 34 C / Furmark stress test 70 C - 77 C using MSI Afterburner

The 212 fits the 300R with 2 x 140 mm side fans.
I've heard that the 300R window version has clearance issues with the 212 and the 2 side fans.

I had a chance to get other cases like the HAF 912 Plus but I ended up with the 300R.
I was really impressed with the Corsair's build quality and design.

Perfectly fine. PCIe 3.0 cards are backwards-compatible with PCIe 2.0 motherboards, and the data throughput of the PCIe 2.0 slot isn't a bottleneck for any single video card currently on the market.

I thought I'd share my 300R on here after finally taking some photos. Had it since November with upgrades here and there since.

Standard apology for crappy phone pictures!



I knocked my graphics card recently and can't get it straight again frown.gif











DIY window with Bitfenix LEDs on top and side.



And, of course, the stellar cable management.....



edit: Just noticed the rear photo is from before I changed the CPU cooler and LEDs.
