Antec Three Hundred Two Review
From one of the most trusted brands in the field of gaming, the Antec Three Hundred Two is a strong competitor among quality gaming cases. After the Gaming Series, it is said to be the next top of the mind option.
Built for avid gamers, the Antec Three Hundred Two only weighs 6.66 kg, and measures 23.5 x 52.5 x 47.1 cm which means that it is a better choice than most because it is lighter but larger. Moreover, it is thinner, larger and has better depth than its own predecessors which gives the impression that it has bigger internal space. It also has 5.25? and 3.5? drive bays, a huge compartment for convenient cable management, and two USB 3.0 ports in the front panel that come with an internal connector. Compared to its predecessor, the Three Hundred, it has an additional expansion slot. Having a total of eight expansion slots means better accommodation for graphic cards of up to 318mm in length.
Looking at specifications of its predecessors, it has an excellent 39mm improvement. Furthermore, it features a good total of 11 drive bays that are all tool-free. The chassis of the Antec Three Hundred Two looks and feels convenient and better equipped. There is dedicated column at the right side of the internal cavern for storage. This column offers three 5.25i inches optical bays that are also tool-free, and six 3.5 inches hard-disk bays which are tool-free as well. Plastic mounting brackets come in the Antec Three Hundred Two package; hence, users are provided easier hard disk installation. However, there is no bay to accommodate 2.5in drives which is a minor flaw. The only alternative is to put it at the base of the chassis which is found in the middle of the PSU and the hard disk cage, or install it on the back side of the motherboard.
The Antec Three Hundred Two has an ordinary cooling mechanism. There are two pre-installed fans, a 120mm rear and a 140mm top exhaust, both of which come at a regular market price. What makes this TwoCool system ordinary is the fact that the two fans are attached to the rear switches which causes unstable speed for each fan. However, the default configuration works just fine for cooling the hardware itself. For the more meticulous users who want better airflow, it offers additional four fan mounts.
Despite the strong impression of the overall design, the Antec Three Hundred Two missed out on some points. Attached to the 120mm fan at the rear is the power cable which fails to reach the motherboard header. To answer this flaw, you have to rotate the fan by 90 degrees in order to gain the necessary cable length. Also, there is no available option to direct the cables over the top of the motherboard which consequently makes the connection with the CPU power cable on boards cumbersome.
