Nooo! Dont buy the 300r! It's bad case compared to others in it's price range. I have it, i hate it!
I would go with http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fractal-Design-ARC-Midi-Case/dp/B00AWZQ4FI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1390903200&sr=8-2&keywords=Fractal+Design+ARC
It is more expensive but it has so much better airflow and is more functional

Fore example the front in 300r is extremely restrictive and it can't even fir coolers like h100i. It's also very loud and there are small things that piss me off like the front, it is so hard to take off.

Well why would you recommend it. I'm not trying to sound hostile, but you need an argument. Only fanboys give opinions without arguments. My argument is that the 300r has massive design flaws, like restricted front intake, no rubber grommets for cables, no removable dust filters, no window and so on.

I said at the start I don't know much about cases and for the guy who he is building the pc for to choose a case he likes the look of, I put the 300r in partpicker to give a rough estimation of the case price.

Alright. 300r used to be good for it's price, but for some reason case priced have dropped hard during the last year rolleyes.gif
