Three Hundred Illusion
The Versatile Case
 
  The Essentially Cool and Quiet Case  
  Impressively spacious and unbeatably reliable, the Antec Three Hundred is an unbeatable enclosure. Despite its eminently portable frame, the Three Hundred has enough room for an NVIDIA 8800 series graphics card, as well as six hard drives and a standard ATX motherboard. A cable management compartment keeps your system organized and the airflow unobstructed. A 120mm rear fan and 140mm top fan ensure that the case runs cool even when playing the most demanding games, while the sleek black finish gives it an extra stylish edge.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case for the price point.

Pros: - Inexpensive (for the price range and number of bays/fans)
- Good many bays, easy enough to access

Cons: - Bay mounting holes. I have four different brands of products in the 5.25" and 3.5" bays. NONE of the holes line up -just- right. The holes on the 5.25" bays are the worse offenders. I prefer to use all four screws per bay, especially when putting together a system for a friend, relative or customer (as it usually means shipping it). The 3.5" bays aren't too bad and the 5.25" bays can be done, but, slowly as to ensure you aren't crossthreading/striping the threads of the screws.

** !! -- Here is the BIG con, the one that removed two eggs. RIVETS. Guys, be EXTREMELY careful to give a tap with the head of a screwdriver to ALL rivets in this case. After assembly (placing motherboard, etc. into case) I set it upright one last time and I thought I heard a faint rattle, drop, plinko type effect in the case. But, likely, ONLY because I still had the side cover off. I looked and didn't see anything immediately. So I gave the entire case with all its contents (no mechanical drives in it yet, as it had a six 2.5" drive to one 5.25" bay backplane in it that I hadn't yet populated and then two SSD's), woops, low and behold, the mushroomed part of a rivet had fallen from BEHIND the motherboard (mind you, it is installed into the case at this point, so that was the solder side of it) and another, where it came from I do not know. So TWO mushroomed parts of rivets were just in there. After this, I disassembled and gave about a 5 lb per square inch tap on each rivet with a screwdriver to see if any others were loose and would fall off.

This could have EASILY been a catastrophe. One that I am willing to bet would have been very challenging to content/convince/prove that the CASE burnt up a $3k system, or atleast the ASRock C226 WS+ and Xeon E3-1240v3 processor.

QUALITY ASSURANCE TEAM -- You did NOT do your job adequately let alone properly this day. Will it keep me from buying Antec in the future, I do not know. I do know, I'll look to other alternatives instead of defaulting to Antec.

Other Thoughts: - Blue LED's, these can be "clipped" easily enough (the front requires taking off the faceplate, be -careful- the "clips" holding it on are a bit more brittle than I would care for)

5 out of 5 eggsMy best case so far

Pros: All the fans are included. Lots of space to put your videocard and other component. Love this case I have put 2 computer in there so far and probably won't change it until standars change.

Cons: Still quite a lot of noise from the fans its not anybody's fault fans make noise whatever case you put them in.

Other Thoughts: Would have loved a better way to clean the frons dust screen whitout removing the whole front pannel like a pull tab or somthing of the sort.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case and Excellent Service.

Pros: Tasteful aesthetics, lots of airflow with the 4 included fans, plenty of room inside for lots of drives and full size graphics cards. It is also very durable, I have owned this case since 2011 and it has held up very well, much more so than the similarly priced Cooler Master case I had before this one that looks like a post apocalyptic movie prop nowadays. Antec also has top notch customer service!

Cons: No cut outs for cable management and full size graphics cards will block a HDD slot. Both of these problems have been addressed in the new Three Hundred Two case though. The only other con would be that this and even the new version of the case still has the older style silver interior instead of the more common black nowadays.

Other Thoughts: After about 2 and a half years the headphone jack on the front would only play through the right side. After checking on the Antec site from time to time for six months, the replacement I/O panel was never in stock. I finally decided to file a ticket to ask if they were going to restock it or offer the one from the new version for sale. Even though my warranty had expired by a few days they went ahead and sent me a new I/O panel for free without me even suggesting that they should as I was willing to buy one if they were to ever restock it. This has definitely made an impact on who I buy cases from in the future!

4 out of 5 eggsGood cheap case

Pros: This case is everything I expected. Nothing special, and cheap.

Cons: The top 200mm fan came broken. But that does not concern me as I am replacing all of the fans anyway to get rid of the LEDs. If you're looking for a case with good cable management, this is not the case you're looking for. There is some room for cable management but not much.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a cheap case that isn't anything flashy, this is great.

5 out of 5 eggsBasic yet elegant.

Pros: Got it with a rebate recently, so the price was just fine for what it is. It's spacious enough for a mid-range+ build. It comes with 4 fans, 2 on the front to cool the hard drive bays and 1 @ the back of the case, followed by a larger fan on the top of the case. They have speed switches from Low-Med-High for the exception of one of the top case fan having only Low and High setting. The case looks nice and not overly exaggerated nor does it look to plain. It's just right in my opinion, and is well suited for a home or office setting. I forgot to mention the fans are blue LED illuminated, for the exception of the rear exhaust fan. The case comes with a few motherboard standoff screws already attached as well as a bag with assorted screws for HDD, Mobo and Optical drive mounting and some extra standoffs. There is a second set of screws which are twist on's apparently useful for mounting the hard drives without the need of a screw driver. Pretty handy, just wished they fit the holes for the optical drive as well. The front cover of the case is easily removable with little and careful effort, and has a filtering mesh to keep some dust and lint out of the case. The power button placement is OK on the top right, and has the reset button slightly concealed from what I believe is to prevent accidental pressing. On low settings, the fans are pretty quiet, you can only hear the CPU fan spinning up or down, if you move em to medium, they are still fairly quiet, and lastly at high level they are noticeable. I also like the convenient placement of the USB front panel ports and the headphone out / mic-in plugs.

Cons: Upon opening the case it seemed to be a little dirty. It's not entirely a cont but I can't remember the last time I bought a case that seemed like as if it was left outside to get slightly spattered. The front panel USB ports may interfere with the ability for you to put in or remove optical discs depending on what you have plugged in there. Only solution would be to relocate the optical drive to the 3rd opening down to mitigate the issue.
Although I didn't plan to use a tower CPU cooler on this build, I can see how it would make things very cramped with the sizeof the case. Run some dimension simulations by drawing out specifications and you should be fine, and will avoid you some head aches.

Other Thoughts: I never really liked overly flashy or "nerdy" type computer cases. I prefer a more elegant streamline design, and though this build is not for me, but a client, it is easy on the eyes whilst still having a subtle appreciation to detail. It is suited for small office and home usage. It is relatively light compared to my own mid-tower case from Cooler Master. If it were up to me I would ditch the LED's on the fans, because they aren't explicitly necessary, but I guess it looks good enough, specially in a dark room.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing pretty case.

Pros: Very great sleek look to it and the blue fan lights by default are not too overpowering to look at even in the dark. Spacious and easy to work with.

Cons: None at all, this is a great case for anyone starting to build computers or something who has been doing this for years.

Other Thoughts: Worth every dollar.

4 out of 5 eggsI have used it for 5 years

Pros: Sturdy has the front intake filter to keep dust out, Has plenty of fans to keep your expensive parts cool and safe.

Cons: Very bad cable management, No matter how creative you are it's going to look sloppy inside. So it's a good thing it has no side window.

Other Thoughts: There might be better mid towers but this one has housed 2 i5 gaming systems. And kept them good and cool.

Now she houses a i5 3470, 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600, R9 270 3 HDD's And my Asus Optical. Corsair CX600
