The Antec Three Hundred Two is the successor to the original Three Hundred case, designed for gamers. It looks similar, which is no bad thing, as it's an attractive case. Its whole front is a mesh grille, bar the 5.25in drive bays and the small front panel, which houses two USB3 ports, headphone output and microphone input.

The grille allows more air to pass through the case, which should help with cooling, while a secondary internal grille inside the case helps block dust intake. There's also a removable PSU air filter underneath the case on the side that you can take out and clean at regular intervals to improve airflow and keep you components clean.

It comes with two integrated fans on the top (140mm) and rear (120mm). We found them quiet and unobtrusive and their size means they should shift a decent amount of air. There are also an additional four 120mm fan mounts if you want to add more cooling. This is particularly useful if you're planning on overclocking your PC.

Inside, there's room for graphics cards up to 318mm long and even cards this big won't block any of the six 3.5in drive bays, as hard disks are now mounted perpendicular to the motherboard. The three tool-less 5.25in drive bays were a bit of a tight fit, but the plastic grips were firm and secure once they were clipped into place.

We weren't too impressed with its overall build quality. Its side panels were quite flexible, and its thin steel body showed a lot of flex as well. You shouldn't cut yourself, though, as all its edges are all rolled.

There's a lot to like about the Antec Three Hundred Two, but the similarly-priced Corsair Carbide 200R has more room inside.
