5 out of 5 eggsLast Case You Will Buy

Pros: ~Clean, Militaristic Design.
~Mesh Guards.
~ Large Power Button
~ Slide-In HDD Docking Station.
~It's Got Wheel Man...
~Massive Room for Updating Future Builds.
~It's Black
~PSU Docking area is flipping awesome. Need a 1500W PSU? This thing eats those for breakfast.
~ I can has 2 CPU's in dis Case!
~10 bays for HDD/SDD memory

Cons: Everything below is something I felt was worth mentioning. There is nothing about this tower that I would deem acceptable for losing an egg. With that being said..
~Reset Button is a bit small
~ Front Shroud is a booger to get off. I've yet to figure out how to do so.
~ Once the access panels are figured out, they are a breeze to open/close for access to the inner parts of the tower, It just takes a bit to wear off the paint on the prongs.
~Stock Fans seem a little on the lower end. Side panel fan, if the system is shut off, tends to drag a little upon booting. I have not trouble-shot this issue, so I don't know if IrDA headers are bad, the connectors are bad, or what have you. The fans are going through the some main header switches. They could be bad. Again, unsure.
~ The header switches for the fan's iseem to be in odd area's.
~The Mesh is a little hard to clean when small children use it for food drawing.... Yea.
~ The size of this case cannot be under estimated. If you have any thoughts about your area for this tower, grab the specs, use cardboard and tape, and make the case size. It'll give you a rough estimate of the size of this Tower. "Super Tower" is in the name for a reason. I'm in a lot of peoples homes with my line of work, I have yet to see a tower that is as large as this thing is.
~ I can't find a single fan large enough to cover the entire side panel..
~ Aftermarket CPU coolers can get very large. I bought a 10'' CPU cooler for my build, and with the stock 230mm fan on the side panel, there is literally nothing between it's shroud, and the aftermarket shroud. A sheet of paper doesn't slide in between them.
~36 pound case, without the guts needed to power a monitor on.

Other Thoughts: I can honestly state that I will never need another tower what-so-ever since I've bought this one. If my son decides he wants to build a computer, I'm going to consider this case before any other, if not this one, then one of the many other cases that Rosewill provides. I'm a customer for life.

5 out of 5 eggsGo beyond ATX?

Pros: Space - room to fit a lot of toys inside
Mesh - there is a proliferation of mesh to augment airflow

Cons: This is a minor one but a few of the HDD holders were bent to the point that they wouldn't stay in place. Being metal I was able to bend them back into space without too much work.

Other Thoughts: As everyone says, this case is rather large. I put in an Asus Maximus VI Formula, and it looks tiny inside it. If you are building a new rig with this case, don't be afraid to consider a motherboard bigger than the traditional ATX layout. It'll allow you to really take advantage of the real estate for better airflow and bigger/more toys (video cards liquid cooling, etc.).

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case,even more awesome support

Pros: Looks great, has a lot of space, good base cooling level. Also, Rosewill's support is top-notch.

Cons: Arrived with some cosmetic damage to top/drive bay, which was disappointing since the size of the case made an RMA sound painful. I emailed Rosewill's support late at night and they got back to me within an hour. They sent me an entire replacement top panel within a week at no charge.

Other Thoughts: I'm really happy with this case, and am even more happy with Rosewill standing behind their product. Will absolutely be purchasing more stuff from them in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is massive!

Pros: This case has plenty of space for just about any possible setup. It has all the space and setup you need for liquid cooling, lots of options for airflow, and has lots of options for cable management. It also has many, many hard drive bays. As somebody who tends to keep upgrading his system by adding more and larger components, I no longer have any fear of cramping my system and running out of space and ruining the airflow.

One thing I liked is that they provided two 8-pin power cable extension cables which is what allowed me to be able to hide the CPU power cable behind the back panel. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to hide it.

Cons: One con I have is the fact that the power supply MUST be mounted on the bottom. In order for me to be able to completely hide every single power cable, I would need to be able to mount the power supply on top. As it is now, I can't run the main motherboard power cable through and behind the back panel because it's not long enough to reach from the bottom of the case. So now I have this massive cable running over the top of my graphics card and motherboard. Oh well it's not that bad, it's just an aesthetics thing.

The other con (related to the first con) I have is the fact that they didn't include a motherboard power cable extension cable like they did with the CPU power cable. If they had, I would've been able to hide the motherboard power cable behind the back panel.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! What a steal

Pros: Gigantic Pre-historic sized case with enough room for you and some more vacation time. It comes with all the options for liquid cooling as well as all sides allow maximum airflow support top, bottom, sides, back, front. The sliding case side with the huge fan is awe striking. Been building PC's for years and recently ran out of space to make modifications from a mid-sized tower. I am more then surprised at the cost for what it is! The hdd on top front is nice as well.

Cons: The only con i came to find on my end was the mesh they use on the display side instead of the side window. So if your looking for bling bling or case showoff display setups. This might not be the first option.

Other Thoughts: I need a bigger mobo! =P

5 out of 5 eggsThe RIGHT, Case!!

Pros: More than enough room for my Monster Heatsink.
Fans, Fans, Fans. Up to 19.
This is what I call a Full Tower.

Cons: Only three 5 1/2" Bays One 3 1/2" Bays but that is not a problem for me.

Other Thoughts: I have an FX 9590 Heat beast. I knew that my Haf 912 was just barely cutting the mustard. I wanted a Full Tower and that is what I got. More than enough airflow potential.That is what I have. This Beast is Big and Heavy.But I am Satisfied. It is I had to use Fan Contollers for 15 Fans. That is what I recommend. Not the 2 Rinky Dink Hubs they come with.

FX 9590 Cpu
Asus Sabertooth R 2.0 Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs1+ yr. review

Pros: This case gives you all the Room you will need. I have had it for about over a year now and its great. Rosewill customer service is excellent. I stepped on my front panel while cleaning it and broke it, this was like after only a few months of ownership and they replaced it. Had some fans go out also and they shipped me new ones no charge, also no charge on the front panel either. This case will give you countless build ideas.
I have installed
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Mobo
AMD 8350 CPU
8gb Corsair Vengeance dual channel 1866 memory
Cooler Master 212 EVO heatsink with Cooler Master 120mm Red LED Jetflo fans in push-pull
2-way SLi Evga 660 FTW signature 2 Series GPU's
Cooler Master V850 full modular PSU
Western Digital 1tb Black gaming HDD
Samsung DVD/ROM player
3 Vortex red led 140mm case fans top
3 TB Vegas 140mm 2-front 1 rear
2 internal 140mm Aero Shark Red led fans (mounted on inside case on HDD cages)
3 120mm Rosewill red led case fans Mess side panel, with Silverstar dust filters.
1-120mm slim 2200 rpm right side panel Mobo fan, with dust filter.
All this with still room to grow.

Cons: Side window kit.
better filters
Higher quality case fans, I had the two top 230mm and the side all go out on me. Rosewill did replace the side one, I had 3 other Red led 140mm fans and used them instead.

Other Thoughts: Would love to see as state above in cons a Window kit for a pexy-glass window in stall. with or without fans installation.
Better removable and washable filters for top and front case fans.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall a great case!

Pros: Many things going for this case.
1) First off, like everyone mentions, it is ENORMOUS!

2) By my calculations you can fit about 17 FANS! (9 on one side panel, one on the other panel, 2 on top, 2 in the front, and 2 by the HDD bays, oh and one more in the front if you only use one 5.25" optical drive). I havent put the guts into it yet but I can tell the airflow should be way more than sufficient.

3) The factory stock LED fans it comes with are pretty nice, lots and lots of grommets for wire management, and overall fairly good quality for the price.

4) Can support a dual psu build! (One can be used just to power all the 17 fans)

5) 10 HDD/SSD trays!

6) Very nice quality elevated feet for added airflow and comes with wheels, good plus!

7) Doesnt come with a lot of zip ties, but it did include a motherboard mini speaker to test with during boot runs to hear that very pleasing beep!

Cons: 1) The side panels are slightly flimsy, they can bend with a decent amount of manipulation to them, so be gentle, especially when taking them off.

2) The locks that hold the side panels are very basic, and require quite a bit of force and tugging to pull them off. Rosewill decided to simply branch out a portion of the same metal that makes up the side panel, and have a hole at the other end to slide them into. Could have wanted to see at least a simple hinge or latch design for the price, but oh well.

3) Not really dealing with the manufacturer, so nothing on Rosewill, but EXPECT to see a few dings, cracks, and bumps on the mesh/plastic when you receive it from shipping. The plastic part on the top cover had 2 very very slight cracks on either ends, and the mesh had a couple bumps on the top too. By the looks of it and reading reviews the top is what gets damaged the most, so if your top cover comes looking pristine, consider yourself lucky! While taking the side panel off one latch got stuck, when I finally got the panel off I saw the latch was slightly bent and I had to hammer is back into place. But overall mine had almost no physical damage, so I was very pleased.

Other Thoughts: Aside from the few little unfortunate circumstances mainly with the side panels, I am very very pleased with this case. All 5 eggs!

3 out of 5 eggsBroken top fan cover

Pros: This case is huge, haven't put any parts in it yet because of what happened during shipment

Cons: The case came with a broken top fan cover and cannot be fixed. Will need a new top assembly, Not wanting to send it back. Also the HHD drive bays were just thrown in the case with 2 pushed in sideways, which made me have to force them out to find all the broken bits off the top half. some of the HHD bays were just laying in the bottom half of the case. All kinds of scratches an dings everywhere. Since this isnt going to be a show case I can deal with the scratches and I hope putting Monsta rads in it, that those will cover up the scratches. Also the door was kind of bent it was only half way put on and to get it off i had to pull with all my force to get it off.. now putting the side back on it wont go into place like it should.. I know i can fix that but was disappointing that it was just thrown together before they boxed it. I know in the end when I get the new parts it will be way better and I will reevaluate this review and give it 2 more eggs.

Other Thoughts: I already contacted customer support as soon as I saw this. Took pictures of what everything looked like and they got back to me very quickly... It sounds like the top can be replaced and I can just do the "warranty" work myself lol. Im fine with that and the scratches do bug me, but not enough to have to wait 2-4 weeks to get it shiped back and replaced with a new case that could have the same thing happen. I am very pleased with how quick rosewill cust support got back to me. I want to give this a 5 star rating because the case looks soo good and the room im going to have will be very good! So as soon as I get that top cover I will do 5 eggs just for the customer support.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied and More

Pros: I looked into every case on the market. I had picked out another one, but this one was on sale.
I could have made a big mistake by not choosing this case.

The cover isn't as hard to remove and put back on as everyone says. If you've ever built a comp in the last 20 years its not a problem.
Excellent airflow, space and cable management.

Cons: There aren't any fan controllers.

Other Thoughts: Despite no built in controllers for the fans, they run smooth and cool.

Configurations may vary, and you'll find many mod holes available. This case will probably accommodate anything you're thinking of. Top notch on build and workmanship.
