Corsair Carbide 300R review -
As always we begin with packaging. It's a simple yet informative thing to show as when you purchase a chassis, you honestly do not want any defects and scratches on it. The 300R is packaged in cardboard.
Once you take the unit out of the cardboard box you'll notice two layers of polystyrene protecting the unit, which on its end is covered in a plastic bag. Packaging was done carefully and the chances of damage and risk are minimal thanks to that.
So there it is. Looks like a run of the mill chassis very much, though distinctly different from the 400R and 500R SKUs.
The design is once again kept simple, no bright lights and screaming logos -- subtlety in full effect. The dark black design is easy on the eyes. Less is better, and that works out well here.
The rounded curves from the 400R model have vanished, in fact the 300R looks nothing like its bigger brothers. The chassis is made out of a steel structure. As you can see at the front side, it supports (x3) 5.25", (x4) 3.5"/2.5" Drive Caddies tool-free drive bays.
When we flip around the unit we can see the side panel and back a little better. Again, simple but stylish. The panel can be removed with two thumbscrews. There are meshes for airflow, inside cooling fans could be mounted.
The mechanism works well. The size of the chassis is by the way 19.1 x 8.3 x 17.7. The 300R actually has seven fan mounting points for plenty of cooling (x6) 120mm/140mm fan mounts, (x1) 120mm fan mounts. Included is a front-mounted 120mm fan and a rear 120mm fan. In combination with the big meshes there is plenty of airflow really.
The backside itself reveals a thing or two as well. Next to the 7 card slots we see three holes, these could be used for some sort of external liquid cooling.
