Like the other poster stated both of them are great cases. The 300R is a little more up to date and has a few more goodies, but both of them have plenty of room to tuck away cables while using a few zip ties. If I had a choice it would be the 300R for the extra fans and front 3.0 USB ports along with the 2.5" SSD cage.

The Antec 300 two is better than either

but of those choices I'd take the HAF advanced

Was that a question directed at me?

The Original HAF is nice but does not have front USB 3 . The advanced version does , and its well made but I dont like the style

The Corsair 300r has a top thats completely mesh . This wont help cooling but it will increase component noise getting out

The Antec 300 two is cheaper than the corsair , potentially quieter and has better cable management

+1 for haf,cuz-
it's cheaper
better looking(IMO)
more roomy
more expansion slots
bang for buck
but for $50,300 illusion is best deal-

The most thing I'am afraid of is the cable management and the air flow which one is better at it?

Whoah there buddy, ya seem a bit mad o_O... :o  :pt1cable: 
The 300R has better cooling, and has room for an H100, ceiling of the case is specifically designed for it after all. Enough said there.

Good point . The OP didnt mention water cooling at all though , so the case is worthless overspend compared to the HAF or Antec 300 two
