Corsair Carbide Series 300R Mid-Tower Case




As I said earlier, the Carbide 300R has an industrial looking front bezel. The sides stick out past the three optical bay covers and large indented mesh panel. In the center of the mesh is the only naming on the chassis and there are eight faux screws to look at as well.




The front I/O panel offers the power button which is backlit, the HDD activity light and the reset button on the left. On the right there is the microphone and headphone 3.5mm jacks and a pair of USB 3.0 connections which are not reverse compatible as the 300R ships, but you can buy an adapter.




The bulk of the top of the chassis has even been removed to insert the large mesh panel that takes up most of the roof of the 300R. Here you have the option to leave it as-is, add some 120mm fans or add some 140mm fans. It is also designed to allow the H100 to go here.




The left panel of the 300R offers two mesh areas so that you can add some fans to cool the video card(s) inside. Even though there is less to offer than other Carbide solutions, Corsair didn't see a need to make things bake inside of this chassis. You have choice here of 120mm or 140mm fans as well.




On the back you can see the top of the chassis is lifted up from the rear I/O giving you more room for fans above the motherboard inside the chassis. There is even a wire pass-through to go along with the seven expansion slots and three water cooling punch-outs.




Under the 300R, Corsair made feet the straddle the bottom of the chassis. This makes the footing more solid and actually helps to strengthen the case. To keep the surface it is on free from marks and damage there are large rubber pads on all four corners.
