Howdy,<br><br>
I have searched the different OCN forums and although there are many "modding logs" and build logs here, I have not yet found many build logs and MODs done to the newer CORSAIR case ---the 300R.<br><br>
I recently purchased this case and transplanted my 8 month old PC build into it and have instantly loved it. It has a very industrial and simple streamlined look that since day one has made me think it would be a great high quality case for some seriously cool MODS and powerful machine builds.<br><br>
This thread is for fellow owners and fans to post pictures of their builds, mods, and possible ideas (either completed, in progress, or for the future) of their machines in the 300R chasis. The purpose is to help build the log of possibilities of this case so that other potential users and current users can gain more options for the use of the 300R.<br><br>
*note: this thread is not meant to be a copy of or duplication of other threads that are open to discussion and posts about the 300R, but simply a more concentrated location for people to not have to sift through countless pages of possibly other discussions and pics of other chasis that they aren't seeking ideas for.<br><br>
I encourage you to visit the following links and post in the other 300R related threads as any contributions to any arena is always a positive contribution to the OCN community <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

I havent't gotten to do any MODs to my 300R case yet, but here are some of the ideas I have for the future (money permitting as I am in college currently):<br><br>
1. Watercooling-- I would likely use 2x alphacool single 120mm monsta 80 mm thick radiators<br>
One in the front, one on the rear exhaust along with an alphacool cpu block a bay or cylinder res. with a swiftech 655b pump. I like green and blue as colors so either one may be used in the color scheme<br><br>
2. Vinyl wrapping the case exterior and parts of the interior<br>
3. Replace my window that has fan grills in it with a solid smoked acrylic window<br>
4. Create a shroud from black plexi wrapped in vinyl for the power supply and part of the res. (if a cylinder and the pump)<br>
5. Add some black mnpctech handles to the top for easier portability (i travel home a decent bit, and the machine has to come with me of course <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
***I'm a big fan of the c70 case as well as the 300R. I agree some of the above mention mods may be easier in that case, I like the smaller form factor, exteriro look, and price point of the 300R better for now so that is the case I'm looking forward to complete these MODS on <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

Hi. Subbed. Nice to have 300R-only thread. In near future, I will start with sort of "retrofit" build in 300R, actually, all components are ready, only the case needs to be delivered <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Good to have you on the thread <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> delivery always gets in the way of getting started haha, I look forward to see what you'll do in the "retrofit" so be sure to post some pics of the build <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Howdy, 300r here. Love the case. Great cooling, though I am running an additional 5 fans. Only mod I'm planning is to somehow shoehorn a Corsair H100 cooler in the top fan mounts with as little modification as possible. I think I have enough room with my mobo. I am going to have to move my DVD drive down a bay. Doing it this weekend. Will post results.<br><br><br><img alt="Vof7Kl.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i.imgur.com/Vof7Kl.jpg">

Good to have you on the thread! Sounds like that'd be doable to fit the H100. One thing though if you dont mind the look of it.....<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1065585/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1065585" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1065585/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 500px"></a><br><br>
depending on if you have all the fans and other things for your mod yet, something I've considered was mounting the h100 to my case roof using the obvious 120 mm fan holes on the rad, then mount some high cfm and good static pressure 140mmm fans on the roof outside and push air down into the case through the rad and use the front as exhausts ( maybe the new corsair 140 fans, I just like the way they look lol). And then I would use that koolance fan shroud in the pic to put on top of the case to make it look good and hide the fans. I think that fan shroud would fit the industrial look but would maybe change the overall lines of the case.<br><br>
Just an idea I've contemplated and thought Id share. Either way looking forward to your rig update and mod <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

just randomly stumbled on this thread. i just recently built my pc with this case about a month ago. still tweaking everything and have to organize the wires a little on the inside. nice thing about having the version without the window is i cant see the mess of wires even though they are nicely stored out of the way of my airflow i know i would get annoyed if i could see them.<br><br>
also in the process of figuring out my fan situation and whether i want to replace the stock case fans and the stock fan on my 212 EVO for the corsair SP120 quiet editions. mainly the fan on my heatsink is the loudest part of my case but im sure having a rear exhaust that moves more air out of my case can only help over the stock one that feels like it doesnt do much in the way of being an exhaust.<br><br>
will take better pics one day when im happier with everything. im glad im not obsessive about the colors of cables and stuff otherwise id go broke making everything color coordinated and sleeving the cables and stuff.<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1074151/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1074151" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1074151/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 667px"></a><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1074152/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1074152" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1074152/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 667px"></a>

Hmm, my supplier changed the shipment date from "end of september" to "end of october". <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif"> So my build must wait. But then hopefully we make this thread alive <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

<br>
Nice build.<br>
I figured that you improved your case adding two internal extra fans at the middle and bottom disk drive cages.<br>
Are both 140mm fans?<br>
Interesting, LOL.<br><br>
Well, I never thought about doing this before on my 300R.<br>
So maybe I must try to add this extra fans for better cooling, especially for my GPU.

got some new fans. SP120 quiet for heatsink and a AF120 quiet for the rear exhaust. not sure what to do with the stock rear case exhaust. but replacing the stock 212EVO fan has made my computer considerably quieter and was well worth the sacrifice of 2degrees warmer on average because the new fans are slower and move less air compared to the stock 212 fan that was pushing like 60something CFM at 35dBA<br><br>
the AF120 feels like it exhausts more heat than the stock case exhaust although not a drastic improvement but i can feel air back there compared to the stock fan that barely felt like it did anything at all.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1082446/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1082446" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1082446/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 667px"></a>

<br>
Do you have another intake fan?<br>
If not, I would place the old fan as intake in the front or side panel locations.<br><br>
Heat does rises.<br>
So the old exahust rear fan could also work just fine as exhaust in the top.

i might try it as a top exhaust and have 2 total exhaust fans back there since the AF120 quiet is great but doesnt have a high amount of airflow so maybe it can help <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Finally got an extension cable for my 8 pin motherboard power cable so I could run it behind the motherboard! So goodbye to that ruining the inside look of my case!<br><br>
I used a rosewill 10" extension from newegg. Its working well thus far and was pretty easy to install although slightly stiff. I got a matching one for my 24 pin extension as well but I'm really not happy with it, it was insanely stiff and thus not long enough to run behind the board and hide the multicolor cable so I ended up not using it <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif"> but I did buy an NZXT HUE led light kit just a few minutes ago so hopefully this week my case will be basking in the glow of awesome new lights <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

@edsai-Thanks! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Yeah I decided to add the extra fans in my last case before changing into the 300R and decided to do it again.<br><br>
I've noticed it helps drop the temps for the GPU by a few degrees C under load so I feel its well worth the few minutes of effort and extra bucks for the fans. I personally really like cougar fans. My first case was a cougar evolution so when I changed to the 300R I stole the orange fans from the old case and they now reside in the corsair <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"> they are both just 120 mm fans but im sure 140mm could be used.<br><br>
I have only used black zip ties to mount them inside and it works fairly well and could probably be done in a better way with double side tape or an actual hard mod with screws into the case. I just chose to take the quick route and soft mod the case with the quick ties in case I ever needed to move them or change the layout <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
So yeah basically its worth the effort and adds to the GPU cooling so try it! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Nice build.<br>
I figured that you improved your case adding two internal extra fans at the middle and bottom disk drive cages.<br>
Are both 140mm fans?<br>
Interesting, LOL.<br>
Well, I never thought about doing this before on my 300R.<br>
So maybe I must try to add this extra fans for better cooling, especially for my GPU.</div>

i also did this with my case, i found that the 140mm fan that came with the case in the front panel fits nicely between the hdd and the 5.25 drive bay , placed a small piece of foam board i got from a hobby store on top of the fan and it sits nicely, also used mounting tape to place 2 rectangular pieces on the top and bottom of the fan on each side to help keep it in place, and lets me slide the fan in and out for cleaning, also the foam helps with vibration and noise reduction

That is a fantastic looking rig! I love the carbon fiber and the psu shroud you have done, I'm looking to do something similar in the future and yours looks great! It definitely confirms my desire to do that in my case. +REP for a great looking build and for the pictures that help me in deciding what to do <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Im still looking for another case, and its between this case and the antec 1100. Do you guys have any complaints about the 300r? Also can you fit a corsair h60 into the case? (meaning the brackets will fit behind the mobo)
