Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review

Cases & PSU/Cases by leeghoofd @ 2012-03-27

Corsair has targeted with their Carbide chassis series a brand new range of end users. Those that still prefer a  decent quality build, but at an affordable price/performance ratio. We already saw the 400 and 500R versions on the test bench. Today we introduce Corsair's latest offering the 300R. Still a Midi Tower case with adequate cooling. But the main focus is the price tag. Corsair wants to position this 300R versus all the budget cases out there. And I must say the price turned out to be very competitive, retailing around plus minus 65 euros. Let's take a plunge into the world of this Carbide 300R case.

No deviation from the previous packaging. No flashy box art, only the most necesarry is printed on the box. Listing the main specifications on one side, an exploded 3D view on the other. New however are the carrying grip cutouts.








Aesthetic wise this case looks similar to the other Carbide cases. Impressive for cooling fanatics are the two 120/140mm cutouts on the top and also room for two similar fans on the sidepanel.




This time no fan controller, nor LED function. Everything has been reduced to a bare minimum to keep the price low. Two USB3.0 connectors up front and the in and out audio jacks.
