    Antec Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components, announces the Three Hundred Two enclosure, the latest addition to their Gaming Series. This sleek, black chassis is designed to handle today's and tomorrow's high-performance systems that are custom built for gamers from the inside-out.

    The Three Hundred Two enclosure is perfect for gamers, system integrators and casual builders alike because of its extensive cooling advantages and expandability.

    High Performance Cooling Advantages - The Three Hundred Two is built for maximum cooling thanks to its perforated front bezel, included dual TwoCool fans, and four optional fans, including a 120 mm CPU exhaust fan behind the motherboard, to ensure gamers can play beyond the long hours of the night.

    Extensive Compatibility and Expandability - The Three Hundred Two utilizes eight expansion slots for up to three 12.5" (318 mm) graphics cards for compatibility with the largest GPUs.

    Intelligent Design – This enclosure has removable, washable PSU and front intake air filters, along with a cable management system that features four strategically placed holes and 3 cm of space behind the motherboard tray. It's even easier for builders to start using their new PC right away thanks to the Three Hundred Two's three 5.25" and five 3.5" tool-less drive bays.

    "The Three Hundred Two is an excellent enclosure for those who want to build a reliable, long-lasting PC," said Mafalda Cogliani, Global Marketing Director for Antec.

    Why can't they just paint the interior black? And it's too expensive.

    They have ruined the aesthetic charm of the original (I genuinely feel that 300 is the sexiest case ever), the interior isn't black and its much, much too expensive for what you get. CM690 II or a Fractal Design case is a much better deal.

    Yeah I like my Antec 300, especially for the £30 that it cost me when it was released. I like the improvements apart from the front. As fenurch just stated, Fractal Design offer far better aesthetics and features than Antec.

    seems its lost its "cheap can be good" charm. Could get a BitFenix Shinobi for that price in Australia and still save $15.

    Who is he and why should we care? Wait is he that British idiot with the inconsistent opinions about the same features on different cases? Nevermind

    I still don't like the Antec 300 series, but this is an improvement. As everyone has said, around $80 I can find better look and better equipped cases. I disagree about painting the interior on a case with no side window. What does it matter what the interior looks like when you will only see it while building or working on the PC?

    MSRP is $79.95 but on Newegg it is only $69.99. Which is only about $5 more then their popular original Antec 300 case. I have an Antec 300 Illusion (same thing just with blue LED light fans) and I love it. For me it's either this or their Eleven Hundred case. I love Antec's cases. Always have used them.
