Corsair Carbide Series 300R Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting a new case for quite some time to allow for better airflow and easy cable management. After lots of research and Linus's insight, I decided on the 300R since is had most of the things I was looking for within my price range.

Old Setup:

A bit cramped, with absolutely no cable management.



Upgrade List:
300R Case
5.25" bay adapter for card reader.
Grommets from 800D
Corsair Air Series Quiet Fans
NZXT Sleeved LED Kit
Internal USB Extension
USB 3.0 to 2.0 Adapter

Specs:
3 - 19" Westinghouse Monitors
Corsair Carbide 300R - Windowed
CORSAIR 750TX - 750W
Intel Core i5 750 2.67GHz (Overclocked to 3.5GHz)
COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520
MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
8 GB G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1600
2 - EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) FPB EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
Mushkin 120GB SATA III (SSD) - Boot Drive
Western Digital 400GB SATA - Raid 0
Western Digital 500GB SATA - Raid 0
Western Digital 2TB SATA - Files
Western Digital 2TB USB 3.0 External Drive - Files Backup

I'm also open to suggestions on anything that can make it better.

Small update to my rig. Upgraded to a Corsair H60 CPU Cooler. I was looking for something quieter and wanted to try one of these all in one units.





Made an inside cover to limit dust.

After looking at the opening it seems easy enough, so I may give it a try. I hate the holes that Corsair put in the window. Since I never plan to put fans there it completely destroys the look of the window.
