3 out of 5 eggsWas not worth the money for my needs

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: The case looks great with the smooth black finish. The front face of the case is also easy to remove.
***Removable filter beneath the PSU***

Cons: The lack of spacing behind the MOBO mounting plate is astounding! Though I had read cable management was difficult in this case, I still purchased this case, so my fault.
*I fit an ATX motherboard into this case

Other Thoughts: I would not have purchased this case if I had known how annoying it was, though the case is just the same as my AMD gaming computer with a micro atx board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: - Easy to cool
- Screw-less drive instillation
- Tons of drive bays
- Sturdy
- Roomy. More than enough room for my huge Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes
- Snug but enough room to route ALL my power and interface cables behind the motherboard mount deck and drive bays

Cons: - I really can't think of even one

Other Thoughts: I've had this case almost 4 years with no regrets. Best case I've ever owned!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat looking product, clean and easy to build with

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: sleek look and easy interchangeability of parts

Cons: USB 3.0 plugs on front failed in first year and too much trouble to deal with Rosewill warranty.
this is a problem for a lot of case builders who include thier own case plugs which is why
I always install Separate front mounted card readers which for some reason are also made by Rosewill but do not seem to be
plagued with the case mounted failures 3 years later and still working

Other Thoughts: Bang for Buck, great product overall, but Rosewill should address their own USB failures as all their cases i have the USB front mounted plugs stopped working within the first year

4 out of 5 eggsdecent case for what you pay

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: cheap, does the job, has 3 fans pre-installed, plenty of room inside the case for anything you want, lots of airflow possible with this case

Cons: none really, just minor things that don't really amount to much. Like cable management could of been nicer, tore up the cover for the cd drive it's just thin metal but if you don't take em out it looks nice.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Perfect,Works Perfect Great Price!!!

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: It arrived with no damage, great packaging. This is my second one of this model and I'll be ordering more. This case has awesome cable management options and air flow is great. Used stock CPU fan and heat sink with no problem. System temp steady at 21 degrees. Lots of room in this case for whatever you wanna put in. Anyone that says this has no room for cable management has no business building PCs.

Cons: NONE!!!!

Other Thoughts: I would and have recommended this case to other builders. I will keep buying these until they stop making them and then I'll cry like a baby. The only things I would like to see improved on this case is the front face mounting system, it can be a little difficult removing it if you need to. I also wouldn't mind have this case with a side window to show off how nice it looks inside when it's finished

4 out of 5 eggsGood case

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: Plugged them in and they just work. Cheap price. USB3 at top. Nice metal grill parts.

Cons: Inside mounts are plastic. Will be dust in 20 years, or sooner if it stays too warm in there. Number of fans was probably overkill.

Other Thoughts: Sure. Price was a bit high but it is a solid case and assembles very easily.

3 out of 5 eggsgood case for cheap build

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: plenty of room for drives and motherboard.

Cons: I have two issues with this case. The First is the removable front panel. Very difficult to remove without braking the plastic standoff. You will need to use needle nose pliers to pinch the standoff. The second is the distance from the power supply to the Cpu power plug. Make sure your is longer than 20 inches.

Other Thoughts: The front panel drive slot covers are held in by two side tabs not the metal mesh. Do not force anything; it will break.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay budget starter case

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: lightweight, good material, looks cool, 3 fans cool my system effectively.

Cons: poor build quality, cramped design, very little room for cable management

Other Thoughts: Within a month of using this case, the USB3 ports on the front were coming loose; one actually came loose and was pushed inside the case. I was able to get it back in with duct tape, but it's really frustrating that it was shoddy to begin with.

Also, there is almost no clearance using an ATX motherboard, so if you need any space along the edges of your motherboard (ie if your MB has SATA connections on its side) this is not the case for you.

1 out of 5 eggsthere ARE better cases out there!

This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: Looks good
USB 3 front ports
Good price when caught on Sale.

Cons: see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: this case was ordered with large order. the original feet (front two) broke off. they were replaced by manufacturer free of charge 2 years later. since then they have broken off again . Argh! The front two usb3 ports have bad designed mounts that keep the ports mounted in the case. I constantly keep pulling the ports thru case to use the ports. I've since then purchased a usb3 card and a 4 port usb3 faceplate for a 3 1/2 and it's been working for 6 months without issue.
