5 out of 5 eggsfits everything

Pros: roomy for my needs. COOLER MASTER 212 Plus fits barely tho but fits. stylish for my taste nothing fancy but not bland. usb's, audio in front is perfect. it also has a sata input in front also. you won't be disappointed.

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: as a budget gamer, i need something that's not so fancy but looks good. this one fits perfect for my needs and also the hardwares i put in. the COOLER MASTER 212 Plus fits just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: I'm getting great temps on load. Stock fans are in good positions and vents are in places that I'd want them to be. Everything worked fantastic out of the box and had no problems with the install.

Cons: As others have said, cable management is a bit of a pain. I made it work though.

Other Thoughts: This was my first build without a full ATX. I probably will invest in a full ATX next time around. If for any reason at all, space makes things much easier during the building process.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable, Sturdy, and Slick

Pros: This case, the Rosewill Challenger, is simply the most bang for your buck you will get out of a computer case. It has the style, strength, and cooling power to make your computer look and feel like a gaming computer at a fraction of what most cases would cost with the same quality.

Cons: The only problem is originality. All of your friends should own this case, and therefore, it would be that much less original for all of you to own it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Has great airflow, fits micro atx or atx. Has options for cable management, I like the mesh front for good airflow, fans at come pre-installed are quite silent to my surprise. Overall this case is a very good case especially considering the price!

Cons: This is where I deduct 1 egg and the reason being is the cable management is terrible.. Yes I did say there were options but they are very limited.. And it was very hard to put the back on after I got everything wired at first and that took up most of the time of my build haha. My other complaint is the HD audio connector.. It can't be hidden at all because how short it is but don't let either of these things discourage you from getting is case the cons are very minor and eventually you forget about them!

Other Thoughts: This is my first budget computer build and I will say that though this case had its difficulties... But it has worked out wonderfully in the end.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Like the layout and design and the price.

Cons: Arrived in an undamaged box but when I removed it from the box their was a pretty bad dent in the top left rear corner but was able to straighten enough to get side panel on without a problem, also the front led fan quit after about 2 years.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: -Good airflow
-Small size
-Very light
-Quality made

Great for most setups

Cons: NO ROOM for cabling AT ALL. There is literally only about 1/8th of an inch for cables being run on the backside of the case. Forget trying to run your 24 pin power connector around the back either, IT WILL NOT FIT, guaranteed, I tried everything.

Other Thoughts: So if you are ok with your rig not looking very pretty from the front do to no cable management, then this would be a good case for your, if you want to be able to tuck your cables away, look for a different case. I'm not joking either.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low cost, works well, good quality.

Cons: Kind of cheap looking in my opinion, and the wire routing system could be better.

Also, I did have to move my HDD around to fit my GTX-780, but it is a big card.

Other Thoughts: Works really well if you just want a good case that has a low cost. However, I do wish I spent a bit more money and got a better looking case with a better wire routing system.

Overall - good case for the value that will get the job done.

5 out of 5 eggsFrom stone age to new age!

Pros: Ok, I just replaced my original case (1998) that I have done 6 builds in. I know, it's about time to upgrade! Got it! Well, where do I start. This case is amazing; light-weight and filled with options. My wife calls it "Darth Vader" not because it's evil but it's black with the USB, HDMI, and the other connections on the front panel make it look Star Wars like. I put in a ASUS ATX board with a 6 core AMD CPU, MSI card, BR player, DVD burner, two internal drives with all the fixings and I still have plenty of space for my toys. The slide in hardware trays are amazing. I am stoked!

Cons: Two of the three case fans I will keep but the other needs to go. The connections are cheap
