"Engineering, I need more power!" "Cap'n, the engines are near to meltin' now; she canna do it!"

Heat has always been the bane of machinery, and computers are no exception. Even as processors are designed to generate less heat, we users pile on more hard drives, more powerful graphics boards, and try to squeeze as many boards into the case as we can. Rosewill's mid-sized tower has a 120mm intake fans and two 120 mm exhaust fan, and you can add a fourth fan to the side panel if you like.

Designed for the ATX and micro ATX motherboards, with nine 5.25" drive bays and three 3.5" hard drive bays(5.25"-to-3.5" cage is included), and seven slots for expansion boards, this steel case lets you cram a lot into a little without breaking a sweat. Is this the case you need? I don't know. But I bet your own Chief Engineer will thank you for it.

  • newegg Excellent Expandability with 9 Drive Bays Featuring nine 5.25" external drive bays, three of which can be transferred to 3.5" internal drive bays with the HDD drive cage, the Rosewill R901-P provides excellent expandability.
  • newegg Efficient Ventilation The Rosewill R901-P features three 120mm fans in the front, at the rear and on the top for efficient ventilation and effective system cooling.
  • newegg Convenient Front I/O Panel The Rosewill R901-P features a convenient front I/O panel for easy access to two USB 2.0 and two audio ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Modding

Pros: The case is extremely easy to modify - the front is easily accessible and plastics/metal can be cut to form the right parts. The drive cage is easy to remove along with fans and air filters. I also found access to cables, PS, mobo to be very easy. There are sufficient instructions for the front panel connections. The blue power light is really bright - in a dark room, it nearly acts like a night light.

Cons: Only one - the reset and power are on opposite sides of the case (lateral axis). This is only an aesthetic issue.

Other Thoughts: I put two of these side-by-side and mated the cases. I then cut the mobo plate on the left box for heat flow. Once everything was placed inside, I placed the dual box on its side and placed it comfortably inside a 19" rack. Alongside the rackmount systems I have, it looks very nice and has the look of a larger server.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent budget case

Pros: Rolled edges (you won't cut yourself putting things together).
Included 120mm fans are very quiet.
Plenty of drive bays.

Cons: Stamped expansion slot brackets are a pain to remove.
Front panel is cheaply constructed (hot glue holding in leads from LEDs, USB/audio cover is flimsy plastic).
Supports between each 5.25" slot can get in the way of installing some items.
Included fan filters are poorly built (more hot glue).

Other Thoughts: Decent option if you're looking to build a storage box, with plenty of room for 5-in-3 hard drive cages. Construction quality isn't the best, especially the front panel. Doesn't compare well with the Antec P-series, but doesn't cost as much either. I bought it to build a NAS with three 5-in-3 drive cages, and I'm not dissatisfied with my purchase, but I'd probably spend a little more on a better case if I had it to do over again.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Spacious

Pros: From the looks of it, the Price and the Space, should fit a GTX 260 nicely after relocating that cage... Looks to be exactly what I need for my new rig...

Cons: I don't have it yet, and I don't have my FAFSA refund yet... but when I do... *grin*

Other Thoughts: Typical AMD rig...

Phenom II x4 3.4 GHz plan to OC to at least 3.9
DFI ATX 790FX mobo
GTX 260
2 500 Gig WD Caviar Blues (32MB cache)
Raidmax 730 Watt Modular PSU
4 GB GSkill Ripjaws DDR3 1600's
Maybe a 22 inch Monitor... we'll see ;)

5 out of 5 eggsBeutifull Home Serve

Pros: Beutifull case for a HomeServer. Looks way better than HP and when combined with 1 KingWin 4000 and 3 KingWin 3000 yo have 13 bays to add on 3.5" Hard drives. I currently have 8TB in this thing and still have 3 slots open. The case is simple but sturdy and looks awesome. I bought 2 of these plus 5 other case from Rosewill and I don't regret any of them keep up the good work and awesome prices.

Cons: People complain about sharp edges the only sharp edges i ran into where the 5.25 metal lids that you break off to allow a drive to be put in. The one thing I do see wrong with the case is the top fan it needs to be 1/4" to 1/2" to the front of the case because when you put a power supply in you cannot put a 120mm fan you can only put a 80mm fan in there.

Other Thoughts: I will continue to buy Rosewill products specially from NewEgg since there prices are really good and the products are awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I added two extra 120mm fans to side door using N82E16812189063 . Forget about cutting and spliceing fan power wires. just add "Y" connector. Problem solved

Cons: Should have filter media in front of case. Like they have in the "Concourier"

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Large case lots of room to work with.
-Lots of bays, every slot can handle floppy/card reader thanks to the neat covers
-Lots of fan mounts with filters. Filters work well at keeping the dust out.

Cons: -3.5" cage must be removed from front
-3.5" cage has a fan mounted on the front that must be removed for a floppy/card reader to be installed
-2 of the 3 fans are molex and have no speed controls
-The pci slots in the back are pop out, not blanks. So once they are removed they can't be replaced.
-Power LED needs a molex connector and is really bright.
-Little to no documentation.
-Case came the top corner literally buckled. The weird thing was the box and packaging had no damage. It was buckled before it was put in. Probably should have RMAed it, but I was able to fix it.

Other Thoughts: Overall a pretty good case, I would recommend it for those who don't want to spend 100+ on a case.

5 out of 5 eggsMakes a great file server case

Pros: 9 drive bays in the front. Large fans. No worries about cooling. Recessed power and reset buttons. Metal (Read: NOT clear!) side panels. Relatively no-nonsense if you're looking for a lot of bays without a lot of flash. One can argue the lack of a power supply is a con, but if you're going to load the chassis with a vulgar number of drives, you want to choose your own PSU, so I count it as a "Pro."

Cons: These are more,"You probably should know," points instead of cons: As some ofthe other reviewers have stated, the internal bays can be a bit of a bear to get out, but this should not present anyone with a problem. When the 5.25" bays are fully populated and the blanks removed, the side portions of the front panel seem a bit weak and tend to flex. One other caveat is that with the copious amount of airflow through the case, you will likely need to dust a bit more often than a "standard" case. Again, not cons, just FYI.

Other Thoughts: Running the unit with an Atom 330 motherboard controlling a total of 12 hard drives (Using 2x 5-drive cages which take up 3 5.25" bays each and 1 double laptop drive bay). Still have room for an optical drive and LCD display. Have to say it fulfills its purpose quite well, doesn't rattle or buzz, and looks quite good as a monolith.

5 out of 5 eggsNice options builtin

Pros: Having 3 120mm fans really helps the air move nicely through this case. Also, with 9 bays, the option for adding hot-swap drives is a welcome one. The ability to have hard drive cages for expansion is nice because they also have a 120mm fan in the front. The MB backplate also has a small clip to help with wire management that I found extremely useful.

Cons: UPS made a small indent on the back of the unit, but it was easy to bend back into shape.

Other Thoughts: If you keep a HDD cage in the bottom mount, it may be tricky to get that 120mm power. The cable isn't exactly longer then a standard 3pin power cable, so if your closest 3pin power jumper is at the top of your MB like mine was, it may be a stretch.

I have this case functioning as freeBSD fileserver, and it keeps temperatures around 41c for the CPU and 39c for the MB. The fans don't push THAT much CFM individually, but they are whisper quiet and work well as a team. I have no increased heat added to my workspace with this case.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case and LOTS of drive space for cheap

Pros: lots of drive space and great price. Comes with a 5.25 to 3.5 cradle that holds 3 drives and has and has a fan built onto the cradle, which it nice. If you want another cradle, you can actually by the exact saem one for $15 too. i like how they allow you to use 2 different fan sizes if you prefer not to use the 120mm fans

Cons: The sides of the case seem a little flemsy. Could have been pacakages a little bit better. Mine came with a small dent on side, do to something punching through the box dring shipping. Was an easy fix. the front ports are located on the bottom and the door that covers them seems a little flemsy.

Other Thoughts: the power and reset buttons are located on the left and rights sides and are halfway down.
