5 out of 5 eggsWELL WORTH IT!

Pros: Air flow, that's 1st, tons of flow..inside steady 35c. 120mm on side blowing on GPU and CPU keeping it at a steady 44c, under heavy load at 53cc w/stock heatsink running a Pentium D945. Still with front fan and placement of bottom PSU 750 air still cuts under and out. The panel behind MOBO allows for tons of wire space w/ plenty of tie offs. The kit provided for stand off was more than i needed, They provide a lot of extras as far as bolting. Assembly was actually fun, i was afraid it would be annoying. When you watch the video it appears that the front cover is hard to get off, almost as if it was broke. Well it's not, came off easy and snapped back in just as easy. Also the kit for 2.5 is really easy, there is an upper and lower slot, upper snaps in, lower screws in. I have 2 80GB 2.5 SATA Drives in it for dual boot. Running Ubuntu Studio 14.04 on one and the other is a storage between operating systems. They stay at a constant 35c even boxed in the way they are. Over all a well made and designed product! Front ESATA was a nice plus. also i used the rear sealed port holes to sneak out power supply for external Sata drive. I do a lot of work on computers for friends..And it's not as bright as everyone is saying, mine is because i have 3 blue leds on my fans, no need for a night

Cons: Because bottom mount MOBO supply runs right over MOBO and with LED FAN it's clearly visible. Plus it doesn't help i have neon green wire
make sure you configure in windows to RESTART,...

Other Thoughts: I would suggest getting 2 extra fans, 120mm hook the one on the side panel to MOBO so diode can control it. I had my ATI Radeon run a GPU Auto-tune, threw the CPU and GPU under heavy load and it did rev up that fan. So i put the CPU under stress test, side fan did rev up but CPU never went over 56c rated for 63c max, and believe me, the stress test pushed on it hard, plus i kept open browser and media player, sat back and watched with CPUID Monitor...I was thinking i would have to replace stock heatsink when i purchased case, but no need, just get a couple extra fans, they are running a sale right now on here, 2 120mm for $9 great deal. Also while running Ubuntu Studio and recording, i did notice a lot of improvement in latency. and this case removed trace vibration off my audio, even with cardinal mic my last case picked up case vibration i would have to trace down and clean up, Great Deal well worth the price, kinda feel bad in a way, like i ripped them THANKS NEWEGG!!!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case for good price

Pros: Solid, sleek look. Not overly flashy
Plenty of air-flow
Cable-management options for cheap price
I'm impressed with what you can do in a mid-tower case if the space is used correctly

Cons: Still smaller than a full tower (I have the Thor V2 and that thing is sooooo awesome for all it's space, but it's so dang big)
It can get noisy if you lots of fans, or a loud CPU fan

Other Thoughts: I bought this case to put my older gaming rig in. I bought that old computer about 6 years ago from (terrible choice) and I wanted to finally replace the broken, gaudy, hilariously alien-looking case that it came with. This new case is much better.

5 out of 5 eggsWell built case and easy to work with

Pros: I used this case in a build for a friend and it was easy to work with. Covers all the basics and has good workmanship, with the painted interior, plenty of fan mounts and front filter. If you like the aesthetics you shouldn't be disappointed in this buy.

Cons: Wish there was a side filter to keep dust down

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Challenger ATX Mid Case

Pros: Easy to use, some cable management options, comes with three fans, some zip ties and tool-less designs for 5.25 and 3.5 inch drives as well as a cage for an SSD. I wasn't looking for any LED lights but the fan on the front is not overbearing. I may switch out the case fans at some point but they are quiet and getting the job done very well. I especially like having the top exhaust and fan on a very reasonably priced case.

Cons: A little tight if you have some big components, it does fit CM Hyper 212 EVO cooler and my GFX card is an ASUS DIrect CU II Top R9 270x, but there isn't much wiggle room. No front USB 3.0 (Doesn't bother me but probably worth mentioning here.)

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap case that fit my components and was fairly neutral looking. So far this case has fit all of those wants and needs.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Holds all my computer insides with room to spare. Front and back 120mm fans and a 140mm on top keep the insides cool.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My cpu runs a little hot. I read in these reviews the hyper 212 evo just barley fits. I plan on getting one in about two weeks will update post when I have done so to confirm how well it fits.

5 out of 5 eggsRe Review Rosewill case

Pros: Very nice looking inside AND out, love the colors and solid case construction and flow. Still looks good and solid after years of use.

Cons: Front fan had a bearing issue so I guess its the fans problem not the case but the fan sounds absolutely horrible on start up.

Other Thoughts: After my initial review Rosewill wrote:

Manufacturer Response:

They sent me a new front fan and it has worked for years now, well worth 40 bucks.
