Corsair is definitely one of our favorite manufacturers out there - during the last couple of years they've entered numerous new hardware categories and always come up with innovative and good products. This time they've set their aims at budget case market with some new case models, and we also received a sample of their new Carbide Series 300R case. Now lets see what this model is all about!

The newcomer sits in the same product family with the 400R we reviewed late last year, and looking at the specifications it indeed is quite similar with the other model. It's a mid-tower case with three 5,25" bays and only four 3,5"/2,5" bays. It offers plenty of optional cooling, but as stock only comes with two fans.

The bundle is limited to just the mounting hardware, a couple of zip ties and the manual. What's really missing here is the USB3-adapter that makes it possible to plug the front panel USB3-header to an USB2-header.
