Sharkoon CA300H – Midi tower with lots of RGB lighting presented

Sharkoon has created a real eye-catcher with the ELITE SHARK CA300H, which aims to impress with an impressive design, a well thought-out layout and a striking front. The ELITE SHARK series is geared precisely for high-performance hardware setups, and the CA300H is no exception.

Colorful optics: RGB control or manual

The CA300H features RGB control for addressable LEDs, distributing control to up to eight LED elements on compatible motherboards. This allows them to display up to 16.9 million colors via the motherboard software and display unique lighting effects. If a mainboard without a connector for addressable LEDs is used, up to eight connected addressable LED elements can be illuminated directly via the RGB controller in 20 preset modes. The side-mounted and illuminated I/O panel can be used to cycle through the 20 preset modes or turn them off completely using the dedicated illumination knob.


The pre-installed addressable RGB LED fans and color control are certified for Asus Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync, Gigabyte Fusion, and ASROCK Polychrome SYNC. The ELITE SHARK CA300H is marked with the “ADDRESSABLE RGB” logo, it distinguishes the case to be compatible with motherboards that have connectors with the following pinout for the addressable LED fans or LED strips: 5V-D-coded-G and 5V-D-G. The pinout is independent of the motherboard. The pinout is independent of the manufacturer, but can be different in terms of designation.

Full view and sufficient space

To ensure that the hardware in the ELITE SHARK CA300H is shown off to its best advantage, both sides are made of tempered glass. The right side is partially tinted black, so the power supply tunnel does not interfere with the look. On the other hand, the left side provides a full view of the inner workings and thus shows off the installed hardware. Especially components with RGB elements and high-quality HDDs get the attention they deserve.

The front of the case has an eye-catching geometric design and shows the three RGB LED fans behind it. In addition, the fourth RGB LED fan located in the rear part additionally illuminates the case from the inside. High-quality materials were used to give the case a noble touch. The top is made of solid perforated metal.

In total, up to seven fans find their place in the ELITE SHARK CA300H for individual airflow solutions. For sophisticated water cooling systems, the case features a pre-mounted bracket for water cooling expansion tanks and dedicated slotted holes for easy installation. Radiators up to 360 mm can be installed under the top of the case, whereas the front accepts radiators up to 420 mm. Instead of the pre-installed fan, a 120 mm radiator can also be used for this purpose. The pre-installed fans provide a constant airflow, which is supported by the mesh grille of the front panel.

The interior offers enough space and holds graphics cards up to a length of 425 mm and power supplies with up to 240 mm or a CPU cooler up to a height of 165 mm. To make sure that storage is not neglected, it is possible to integrate up to four 3.5-inch hard drives or seven 2.5-inch SSDs.

Thanks to a spacious and hinged cable compartment with sliding cable cover, cable clutter doesn’t stand a chance in the CA300H. In addition, the side panels have been kept free of screws, so they can be easily and quickly hooked into the case.

The Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA300H is designed to display the valuable components. Thus, the graphics card can optionally be installed vertically, for this there is an extra mounting kit with an easy-to-mount bracket and an extra-long riser cable. Pre-installed is the classic graphics card holder with a rubberized support surface, which is almost completely customizable. Overall, the large case comes in at a dimension of 50.5 x 23.5 x 52.0 cm (L x W x H) with a weight of 14.7 kg.

The new Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA300H is available now in a black and white version at a price of 154.90 euros.
