Corsair 300R Case Review



Testing the Corsair 300R required pushing my hardware to heat things up! Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and overall system during idle and load phases. Load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs, HD Tune, and 3Dmark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor. It is important to note that each case is tested from its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.

Testing the 300R I was a little surprised. I expected some high temps but I was actually baffled by the results. I honestly ended up running it an extra hour through after the initial hour of testing. The CPU temp at load was remarkably low. It was the lowest I’ve seen in all the cases I’ve had through this year. Nothing else stood out besides the CPU and chipset temps, and the only explanation I could come up with was the fact that the case is rather small, the front fan is in the middle pushing air right up over the board and CPU and right out the back fan. The idle temps and load temps for everything else were on the high end. An odd channel of air that even caused me to take a second look; if nothing else you’ve got the ideal setup for cooling your chipset and CPU at full loads.
