From the Manufacturer

A compact expression of Corsair's gaming philosophy.

Great systems start with a great case, and Carbide Series 300R provides a remarkable number of features in a compact chassis. Easy access, lots of room for expansion, and superior cooling make the 300R a great choice for building powerful PCs that don't take up a lot of room.

Carbide Series 300R Top
The front panel includes two USB 3.0 connectors and audio connectors.

Serious cooling potential.

The 300R is equipped with two fans for intake and exhaust, and the integrated dust filters on the front and bottom intakes are easy removable. There's room for you to install five more fans, including mounting points for two side panel 120mm fans for drawing cool air directly over your GPUs. If you're building a multi-GPU gaming rig, proper graphics ventilation is essential.

Carbide Series 300R Side
High-performance gaming systems need room to work with. The compact 300R delievers the room you need to build your ultimate gaming PC.
It's big where it counts.

Despite its size, the 300R can fit extra-long graphics cards of up to 450mm length, and it has three optical drive bays and four hard drive bays. All the bays all tool-free, and the hard drive bays have integrated support for 2.5" drives, so you won't need to deal with adapters when installing SSDs

Build quality.

Whether you're building multiple systems or just one, and whether you're a professional or if it's your very first build, the 300R has the smart features that matter. Just like the drive bays, the side panels are tool-free, so you'll spend less quality time with your screwdriver.

The black painted interior has a CPU cutout for quick installing or upgrading of CPU heatsinks, and Corsair's innovative cable management system provides a straightforward way to route cables behind the motherboard, not across it where it can interfere with airflow and give your system a cluttered look.

Color: Two years
Pros: For this price, it has all the features you possibly could own.
1. 5.25 bays with screwless click-in feature, but could still screw in stuff manually if needed, such as fan controller and hard drive enclosure.
2. Individually removable drive bays that could be taken out from the 3.5" rack to install 3.5" drives (screwlessly) and 2.5" SSDs (with screws) easily.
3. Large cut-out for installing CPU heatsink/cooler.
4. Cable management cutouts.
5. Front USB 3.0 and HD Audio/AC'97 connectors.
6. Can install up to 7 120~140mm case fans, preinstalled with 1 120mm back exhaust and 1 140mm front intake, both 3 pin, with 4 pin compatible connector heads).
7. Re-attachable PCI expansion card back plates.
8. The front air intake zone is preinstalled with thin air filter.

1. The manual doesn't provide much info about the case. First time system builder could have troubles figuring things out.
2. Side case fan mounts don't have preinstalled air filter (common to most cases).
3. Fan mounted on the top mounting place closer to the front could interfere with an optical drive mounting on the top 5.25 bay. For my hardware setup, I could only but also luckily install 120mm fan at this place.

Other Thoughts: I've lost interest of having flashy LEDs and flamboyant case designs over the years. This case fits my needs perfectly and exceeds my expectation.

-This case gives you a TON of options. It has great cable routing, many hard drive bays, three optical drive bays, built-in USB 3.0... and all for the low price of 79.95. If you want a case that has everything for a budget-sized build: look no further.

-Fits a hyper 212+ just as it should, has great room for larger discrete cards, has 6 fan-mount points (all of which are both 140mm and 120mm compatible)

-Paired with two Gelid Wing14s in the front, this thing is extremely quiet. (Non-LED)

-Aesthetics: Black interior and rear, for that "watcher on the wall" look. Rubber pads on the bottom to prevent any rattling if you have a particularly violent hard drive. Comes with all the screws you will ever need, plus a few zipties.

-For those looking at the asrock extreme4 z77, this works perfectly. The board is known for having awkward SATA port location, but because the drives are mounted near the bottom it makes it easily accessible. (Also highly recommend the board)

Cons: Power button is very bright. Not noticeable during the day, but at night it could very well wake the dead. Simple fix: disable it in the bios. Haven't had any problems other than that, it comes with everything it says.

Other Thoughts: I also own an Antec 300 (maybe I have a thing for cases with '300' in the name?) and it is nowhere near as good as this one, for just $10 less.

Overall, I'd give this a 6/5 if I could, I was really surprised how well this turned out.

I really like this case, but here I will tell you everything I don't like about it:
1. The front fan was really noisy, so I had to replace it. The back fan is totally quiet and good to go.
2. You will need to get some "left angle" SATA cables. There is not enough room for straight connectors as they are squashed up against the backside panel. My sata power cables are also contorted due to lack of room.
3. The case has lots of potential dust holes, so I highly recommend this dust filter for the top of the case:
Silverstone Tek 140mm x 2 Fan Filter with Magnet, Black (FF142B)
It fits perfectly in the grooves of the top of the case and should help prevent dust from falling inside. You can also consider getting some dust filters for the side of the case.
4. The front panel audio connector is just BARELY long enough to reach the right spot on the motherboard. I have it connected, but it's seriously tight and that makes me uncomfortable.
5. The case comes without rubber grommets to pass your cables through. I bought the Corsair 350D Grommet Kit and they fit perfectly.
6. If you have a microATX motherboard, you will need a good pair of pliers to remove one of the motherboard standoffs (it comes set up for normal ATX) and then you can hand-screw it in the right spot.
7. The rubber feet on the bottom of the case are nice, but I stuck some felt pads on them so I can slide the case around on my desk if I need to.
8. The front LEDs are uber bright and if you put your computer on sleep mode, the flashing will keep you awake at night. I covered the LED tubes with a small piece of black electrical tape, and it works great.
9. The side panels are a serious pain to put on. Mine are a little warped, so I need 3 hands to slide them on.

I kept reading and hearing in reviews about how this was a relatively small case. But this is much larger than I was expecting, it is a few inches taller than my old case, which has one more optical drive slot than this. I can't imagine how you would want a larger case unless you were building a server with a big RAID stack inside. This is plenty tall and very deep.

The construction quality of this is very good and adequate for the price. The case design is obviously evolved - Everything is where it ought to be and things click in flush. It's worth every penny you pay for it. But not worth more - The side panels are unbraced sheet metal that could warp or rattle just like any cheap steel case. Definitely not a case for transporting around. If you're going to plant it next to a desk though, this is real nice, and if you desired you could put sticky foam inside the panels to brace and deaden them a bit.

One concern is the grill on the top. It is very large and doesn't have a filter. So you'd need to mount fans to it (easy to do) if you want to keep dust out.
