Inside The Three Hundred
An anticorrosive plating (probably aluminum) protects the Three Hundred’s bare metal steel interior from oxidation in normal environments. More durable and easier to photograph than black paint, a few builders still find this practical solution unattractive.
Modern convenience is limited to an oversized access hole for installing CPU cooler support plates. Other convenience items, such as screw-free drive clips, are omitted to maintain the Three Hundred’s low price.
Below the 3.5” hard drive cage, a set of stands holds a single 2.5” drive. Antec added these to address SSD installation concerns at minimal cost.
Two 120 mm fan cages cover the six-bay hard drive cage. A more expensive version of this case includes lighted fans in both mounts.
One place where Antec’s quality focus can be easily seen is its use of front-panel ports and buttons that are attached to the metal chassis, rather than the plastic front panel. Unlike competing products, this design allows the front-panel to be removed easily and completely.
