R120-V3 is based on the R120 case from the same manufacturer, where they removed the front LCD display/fan controller and added a module on the top with two 120 mm fans and two extra USB ports. Let’s take a look at this new release.

As you can see, the left panel is meshed with place for installing up to two 120 mm fans behind the available meshes, which feature air filters.

R120-V3 has a very sober looks and no front door is present. On its front panel we have four 5.25” bays, all using meshed covers with air filters. A 120 mm fan (which rotates at 1,100 rpm) is present on the lower section between the front panel and the hard disk bays, behind the existing air intake openings. This fan features an air filter and uses a standard peripheral power connector, so you must connect it directly to the power supply.
