    This is the second review I see of this case, and it impresses me again. I'm seriously considering upgrading to it.

    Tough choice between this and the 300R for a few pounds extra

    Personally i barely seeing a difference between the two cases other than a front grille on the 300r, the 200r has more cutout holes for cables i think, or atleast the same, it can house the same number of harddrives, both are almost identical in dimensions. I really dont see the appeal for the 300r now that this is selling.

    As for the antec one vs this, I think the 200r looks a lot better and has space for a bigger gpu, iirc the antec one can only house up to 260mm graphics cards.

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Carbide Series 200R

    I like the look, the cable management, the room and the price.
    But I don't like the little front air intake openings. That's a show stopper for me.

    The fan mounts all seem to be without dust covers - is this the case? Can you buy fans with integral mesh covers?
