Corsair adds a Windowed Version to its 300R Case

Corsair has taken its compact gaming case that was originally released in January and added a large side window that gives PC builders the ability to demonstrate their modding skills while also showcasing internal PC components. The windowed version of the 300R adds an additional cost of $10.00 to the case, which will bring up the discussion to many enthusiast; "Do I pay the extra $10.00 or do I just modify the original 300R with a side window of my choosing?"

The Carbide Series 300R measures 19.1" x 8.3" x 17.7" and features three tool-free optical drive bays and four tool-free hard drive bays with integrated 2.5" SSD compatibility. There's room for high-end GPUs of up to 17.71" in length, so your GTX 690 or Radeon HD 6990 will fit without issue. It utilizes a matte black interior that incorporates Corsair's unique cable routing system to keep wires and cables out of sight for improved airflow. The 300R comes with intake and exhaust fans, with room for five additional fans including dual side-mounted fans for direct GPU cooling. It offers integrated dust filters on the front and bottom intakes that are easily removable for PC cleaning.

    Paying extra to make a good looking case look ugly...
    I don't get why people want cases with side windows. You don't have the Mona Lisa in there. Just computer hardware.

    The case interior is painted black, the motherboards are stylish, Memory kits, CPU coolers which look cool/good are made for a reason.
    For many, it matters how good your PC hardware looks, ergo, manufacturers give a good amount of attention to looks.
    Mona Lisa Vs PC hardware; PC hardware FTW! :D

    I've never understood why THEY don't add the extra fans.

    Will there ever be a case specifically designed for heavy modding?

    There's a reason that enthusiast hardware is coloured, styled and designed the way it is.
    Because if your going to run extremely expensive (in comparison to standard OEM machines) hardware you might as well show it off.

    A bit of an E-Peen in other words.

Just computer hardware.Nothing wrong with having a perspective. ...just as long as you realize and respect that its your perspective and not everyone else's.

    The Mona Lisa is actually quite a dull painting in person. I would much rather look at computer hardware.

    I am all for the window. I wish they just didn't ruin it by placing the 2 fan holes on the side of it.

    Only practical use for a window on a PC case I can see is to check for dust bunnies.
