that's swell to hear. don't let the ps0xb haters change your mind!! :D

looking forward to the build thread. also let us know how much sound is dampening vs one of your other cases. way back i was all for side fans by the truck and so on, but for certain builds that dont require massive airflow ive gone back to the roots, i.e. solid side and the like

While the 300 isn't an easy case to work with to have neat cabling, it is certainly possible to hide cables if you become a bit creative with wiring. Just remember, if there's a tiny crack that you want to squeeze a connector through, you can always de-pin it and put it back together after you pass the wires through . That trick certainly helped me get my own 300 into some semblance of neatness after putting 2 cathode kits in it.

Just a quick tech tip on these cases.......... ;)

When/if you decide to drop a 120mm fan into the front, the easy way to remove the plastic front panel (for access) is to use a smallish (don't remember the perfect size but I included it in my product review over on NCIX) socket pushed against the locking tabs to release them.

Took me a few minutes of cursing before I came up with that, so hopefully I've saved you a little bit of pain. :)
