The Front Panel

The Antec Three Hundred Two has three external 5.25” bays. The covers for these bays seem to be meshed, but they are not.

You can install two 120 mm fans on the front panel of the Three Hundred Two, and there is an air filter in front of them.

The case comes with two USB 3.0 ports and the traditional audio jacks on the top part of the front panel. The USB 3.0 port uses an internal connector, so make sure you install a motherboard with an internal USB 3.0 header. If your motherboard doesn’t have an internal USB 3.0 header, you can ask Antec to send you a free USB 2.0 adaptor, so you can connect the USB 3.0 ports to a USB 2.0 header on the motherboard.
