Steve Mavronis Posted November 13, 2013 Share Posted November 13, 2013 Hello I'm new here as a future customer! I like the Corsair case selections best of all so I'm pretty confident I will be doing a first time high-end gaming PC using one of these cases built around the 4770K CPU and GTX 780 Ti GPU (and Corsair PSU, RAM, Cooling) by Spring 2014 to replace my almost 7 year old PC. I'm into DIY and I've been a computer tech back since 1985 but I don't know what took me so long to think about doing this. So I'm torn between a few mid-tower cases here so my questions/comments follow to help me decide what to choose: 230T - I really love the stylish design and window, especially Rebel Orange because it will make for a nice stand-out rig if done right inside and out. I'd plan on adding screw in feet to raise the case off the floor higher. My mod related questions are does/will Corsair do a grommet kit for the 230T and will an alternate HDD/SSD cage like for the 300R fit inside the case as a possible replacement? Everything with the stock case is functional. I just want to dress things up a bit more visually. 300R - I love the industrial tough look of this case and the 350D grommet kit will fit the cable management holes so I'm good there. But I'm not a fan of windows that are ventilated for side fan installs. It's easy enough to replace the window by cutting out a solid piece of acrylic but I want to know how the stock window is attached to the door? There are really no good photos of this so I'm curious and I like to plan well in advance of purchasing. Is the stock window screwed down or clamped at the edges somehow? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments. Hopefully I've thought of everything to ask about these 2 cases for now but something else could come up in discussion. Case selection is very important because it determines the motherboard form factor and other things that need to fit. Plus I'll have to live with my choice for years to come.
