Sorry for the dumb question. Do I need to use MB standoffs for this case?

Yes, but they are included with the case.

Yes, if you just installed 140mm fans on those mounts they will fit no problems. Just be sure that if you use them as exhaust that your two front intaking 120mm fans be more powerful than your two top exhausting 140mm fans. Otherwise you'll have negative pressure and extra dust buildup. I would instead make a filter for the top and make them intakes with the rear fan exhausting. Just throwing that out there.

Is it possible to fit an P/P radiator (120mm like an H50) at top towards the drive cage of the 300R?

Yes one will fit but you may need a little innovation to get everything to fit if you use an optical drive. Are you mounting it vertical so air goes out the top our horizontal so pulls air from the front?
You could mount it to the top with one out the fans outside the case to better secure it to the mesh otherwise you might need a bracket to give it strength.

When I posted earlier I had no intent to use any of the top drive slots, now I just ordered the Zalman ZM-MFC3. Not sure if I can till pursue that option. Also totally forgot about the fact that I gotta open the driver covers lol.

So I think position 3, is best at the moment. But the 16gb vengeance memory might make that hard to accomplish too..

There are other ways to run the USB3.0 cable. Position 2 is the ideal position but there really is not anything by default to attach the rad or fans too. You will need to make a custom mount, be it simple with screws, or complex with a bracket setup.

I found the fan holes on the front panel to not align with the internals. I think the 140mm fan holes were 1/2 inch too low so the rad would not line up easily.

Hey,

I just got this case and I'd like to get a couple more fans over the graphics card, but have a couple questions. Will the built in exhaust be enough exhaust with 2 extra fans?

And I have the stock fans still in it, which I'll keep, so will I still be better off going for Noctua NF-S12A's for the side fans, or just go with the corsair quiet set CO-9050006-WW (half price). I like the noise the case is right now, pretty silent until I game. I don't mind spending the extra for Noctua if it'll make a difference.


Know it's not as nice as most here, but can't bring myself to spend loads on nice wires.

This is not a $30 case and because of this I am surprised of what is missing. By the way I paid €75 for my R300.

There is no cover (or a filter) for the top mesh. This for me is the biggest negative with this case. I would have many reasons why I would want the mesh covered (dust, dirt, potential spills on my desk, CATS who love to sit on my cases etc) and most importantly significantly improved noise levels if you just had a cover for the top mesh.

The same for the side vents. It irks me a lot that I bought a brand-new case but have to get going with modding to cut myself a top cover from dampening material and get some filters for the sides. Weak.

What is even more bizarre is that the case has this open top mesh but according to most people corsair (!!) H100 radiators don't even fit. Seriously, offering the case and telling people "all they need to do is some modding"...is sort-of absurd advice. It's not that I personally am interested in H20 cooling, but I just think it's bizarre that your very own popular radiators won't fit your very own brand case.

AFAIK no mounts for SSDs, the current solution is sort-of awkward.

Real, latched doors would make this nicer.

Don't get me wrong, this is still a very good case but it could've been stellar with minimal changes, additions.

Dear Corsair Carbide 300R owners.

I must say to start with, I love how this case looks! When I was searching for a new case for my upgrade, I immidiately fell in love with the looks of it. I just love matte black look smile.gif

Now that I've finally build it, I notice it makes a little hum noize.

I have an AMD FX 8320E with stock cooler, a new Be Quiet Straight power 530 watt PSU and no other case fans besides the 2 delivered with the case. I was wondering, do those fans create that little hum? It goes a little like huuHUUhuuhuHUUM.

As I'm a music producer, I fancy a quiet system. Now I'm looking for ways to disable that noize and could use some help in knowing where to look. I'm just a pc user, not so much a case modeller or overclocker. I ordered Gelid Solutions Antivibration Fan Mounts to see if this can solve it. Maybe getting Be Quiet Noise Absorber Kit coz when I lay my hands on the case, I feel it vibrating. Tho, everywhere I press, that sound won't stop, making me think it has to be the fans.

Another question I have is, if I want to replace the case fans, do I have to remove the front panel to get access to the front fan?

Hope some one can help me on the way smile.gif

Thanks in advance,

Greetings, Erik
