Carbide 300R with side window behind the 800D?
Looks good but why fan mounts in the window like the C70?
Anyway, still waiting for a mATX case from Corsair.

300R is designed with Air cooling in mind.
That side window looks nice in that picture thumb.gif

I like the horizontol fan mounts, makes it easy to mount fans for front and rear airflow. I actually have a Kuhler 620 rad mounted on the side fan panel mount cooling my GTX 470.

Hi Corsair, I got a couple of questions and I hope you will answer them.
1) I know the Noctua NH-D14 fits in there but does it JUST fit in or will it fit easy?
2) I'm still not shure if I buy the 300r OR the HAF912 Plus. Can you convince me???

Thnx

I agree 100%. Are there any solutions to this? I'm more concerned about the top of the case which has no dust filtration at all.

I don't think official filters for this case are available (for the top of the case), so I wanted to make a dust filter for it myself...

Any ideas or solutions?

The 300R arrived first. Tomorrow the 550D will be here! Taking this 300R and moving my old system into it for the dad. It's currently in a CM Storm Sniper case and thing is way too huge for his space.

For reference purposes I took the opportunity to verify the overhead clearance with my new MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming motherboard. A 240mm radiator is definitely a no go; see pics below. The tall G.Skill RAM would just make it with .5mm to spare; if that. However, the top VRM heatsink is a show stopper before you even get to that point. The black portion of the heatsink sticks up 2 to 3 mm above the red portion. You could get away with it if you use the slim Scythe fans that are 12mm thick. But, better of not taking a chance and go to the higher model if you want a 240mm radiator up at the top.

Nice Pictures thumb.gif

The 300R is an air purpose built case, but if you put a 240mm rad at the top you could either install it inside the mesh and have fans outside on top of the case or reverse it and have the fans inside the mesh and the rad on top of the case.

In any case if you could fit the rad and fans inside depending on motherboard I'm pretty sure you would need either a slim rad or slim fans (or both).
Rather impressive what you can actually fit in this case though, as it is comparatively small even for a mid tower.

Yeah, I do love the size of the 300R case. It's just right. Thankfully, the 550D isn't too much taller....that's about as big a case as I've come to like. That CM Storm Sniper seemed like a good idea 4 years ago, now I look back and I'm like, "*** was I thinking?" LULZ

Checked out the relatively new m-ATX Obsidian. If I could have found a decent sub-$180.00 m-ATX board to my liking I would of gone that route. Sexy little case.

i understand that a 240mm radiator can fit but 2 140mm case fans can fit in there with that mobo?
