I have a 300R coming in tomorrow, and [hopefully] an H80 in the following week, so if you want to wait I can let you know then.

oh im in no hurry at all. ill totally hang out and wait to see how it works for you. im not worried about it fitting. but i really would like it to fit on the rear exhaust spot with push pull fans with hopefully not much issue lol. very tight for space in this case though haha

I have the H80 in my 300R Windowed and it would NOT fit with BOTH fans installed in the exhaust location for multiple reasons.

1) It blocks installing a 120mm fan up top in the rear position, 2) It blocks installing a 120mm fan in the rear side panel window, and 3) It blocks installing the pump on the CPU in my case. (Maximus V GENE mobo)

You can see a pic of it in my sig.

It works fine with one fan, but if you are buying new I would probably recommend the new H60 or H55 unless you just really want the thicker radiator of the H80.

What if you installed the pump first? Or did it really stick out that much? I dont have the window version of the case but i definitely would want push pull on the H80. Would be getting that or the antec 920 for best cooling since i cant fit h100. looks like the H80i rad is roughly 10mm thinner than the 920. that definitely makes a big difference when space is so tight in this 300R lol

I've seen a few cases with the h100i mounted to the top of the case. Maybe check into going that route? redface.gif

Just passing through! Thought you folks my be interested, the Carbide 300r - Black, is coming up on an Amazon Lightning deal in 9 hours. It'll only be on sale for a couple hours so plan around it if you're interested. Usually lightning deals are 30%-40% off, and generally not a deal you want to miss.

Here's a link to Amazon's computer parts holiday section, with the lightning deals in the center.
Black Corsair Carbide 300r

Good luck guys! Hopefully no one misses it, who might want an extra.

The H80 fits the 300R black side panel and the side fans.
Only the rear top fan will be useless.

Look this feedback made by an owner buyer in the NewEgg:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Post by Xoza

Pros: Tons of Room
Fits the standard computer case sizes
More than enough 140mm fan/radiator support.
Room to run cables in the back panels.
Heavy duty
Easy drive installation.

Cons: No separate filter for front fans (have to pop off the entire front to clean).
Can be a little tight depending on board layout and whatever features you want to add.
Doesn't come with an adapter for Front usb/media ports for different board layouts.
Not very 'stylized'

Other Thoughts: While doing my research I aimed for the largest airflow and fan support and this one won. 3 side by side dual 140mm fan/radiator ports. I had six 140mm fans and one 120mm in the back. When I installed my H80 though, I had to remove the top rear fan because there was barely enough room.
