  7. Comparison with 400R and Conclusion

Corsair has been going strong with their cases one after the another, although it’s been a while since they have put up a full tower case after the 800D. This is the 300R, a mid-tier PC case.

What does a gamer want at the end of the day? A good mid-ATX case with an ability to install fans on the side panel, top panel with the 140/120mm fan on the top and the rear- with dust filters and good space to mount long cards and space behind the motherboard panel. Some did it right, some had some room for improvement- some were very bad but cases are pretty good but it’s not usually considered because of a variety of choices that you get. These cases come in the price margin between Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 5,500- somewhere around under $100 to $150.

What other features can manufacturers afford to put in such cases- or is the only thing left to do as of now is simply to reduce prices of such cases with such features? 300R is another case- and after reviewing 400R and 500R, its time to find out if this case should be considered for purchase?

  1. You should check out fractal’s pc case, you might be impressed with it. Lian Li also makes solid steel cases too.

    To be honest, if a case manufacturer like Bitfenix is able to provide 4 USB ports, which 2 of them is USB 3, why can’t corsair provide them too? i dont need the converter, there’s no point. There are 2-4 usb 2.0 headers and 1 usb 3.0 headers. they should have thought the obvious and put couple of usb ports. but honestly the 300r case looks very ugly. corsair needs to start making lesser product before their products compete which each other.

  2. what do u think of nzxt phantom cases that prime sells? do u think they are good cases.

    1. dunno about phantom. I know about nzxt gamma and that’s a great case for that price when it was new. to be honest, i am not a fan of glossy plastic shell type cases, but that’s my preference. i dont get cases from prime to review nzxt. the owner did say he would be willing to send the case for 1 week, which unfortunately is not possible to really review a case at all.

  3. i would prefer couple of usb 2.0 ports rather than having a converter. whats d point of converter? a board has more than 1 usb 2.0 headers in any case so a big company like corsair havent thought about it is strange.

  4. i find the front panel bit ugly, but if it had the cable tie loops on the back of the tray this would have been the best choice considering that cases cost bit more than it used to to.
