The Rosewill R5 is a game inspired mid tower case that comes with sober design and classic color schemes. All black coating from inside out adds to overall quality and evokes a sense of high grade. Three pre-installed 120mm fans with a host of extra fan mounts keep everything cool while an array of tube holes at the rear enable easy liquid cooling upgrade. Designed with game users in mind, the chassis features up to 320mm GPU clearance for hassle-free integration with high end VGA card. A good list of features such as back hole grommets for better cable management, side-opened HDD tray with tool-less design for HDD and ODD installation, bottom-mounted PSU with removable dust filter, and removable top and front compartment panels with filter, makes the Rosewill R5 a second to none choice for your next power house. Top mounted USB 3.0 connectivity speeds up your digital life with up to 5Gbps data transfer with compatible peripherals.

2 out of 5 eggsRosewill R5 Gaming Case

Pros: Its big and has the space that you req and has room for liquid cooling

Cons: Came to me with stuff bent, broken off, and the front panel's hanging buy one bolt cause the other ones to keep in in place are broken as well

Other Thoughts: I know its not newegg's fault since the package was beat up so I assume the people delivering hurt it but everything inside was fine and I got it when it was on sale. I would not recomend this for $99.99 def get a better one or wait for a sale.

1 out of 5 eggsLow Manufacturing Standards/Quality

Pros: Roomy Case, Good airflow,

Cons: Case was received with power switch inoperable, a dent in side panel, and I had to re tap all the standoff and side panel screw holes.
Unbelievably bad quality control on the case, as far as case complaints, cable management area very tight for such a large case.

Other Thoughts: Ran a temporary power switch till I can get another case in so I can return this one,
Other retailers would have fired me off another case either same case or like priced case if I did not want that one, same day rma issued not making the customer wait through shipping and a 2-5 day refund wait.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Removable top, front and bottom filters - front fans are easy to get to and clean
- Entire front panel is easy to remove
- Nice cable management with rubber grommets - can hide most everything under the right-side panel
- Tool-less caddies
- Harddrives pull out from the side - no more pulling out the front or toward the motherboard
- Mostly metal construction and all surfaces are painted
- eSATA and USB 3 on top - connectors are nice and tight
- Bottom vent for PSU
- Cost far less than my Antec 900 and I think this is the better case

Cons: - Removable filters are great and the main reason I bought this case but the actual filter material is pretty thin and permanently mounted in the panel. I think it would be worthwhile to put your own, heavier, removable filter media in
- Filters on top, front and bottom but there are open vents on the panels. Time will tell how much dirt gets in this way. Easy enough to add your own filters if desired.
- I can't see using the fan speed control on top - I just connected them directly to the MB
- The reset button looks the same as power and is not recessed. I can see bumping it and rebooting the computer. I may just unhook it.
- Not the sexiest case but I was tired of blinding LEDs anyway (the one I bought a few months ago had no LED fans)
- Front panel audio connector did not match pinout on my card. Don't know if this was HTO Striker fault or Rosewill
- Yes, the HDD trays feel a little flimsy, but they aren't going to break, work great for SSD and snap firmly in place

Other Thoughts: For the money, I'm very happy with the case, it was a joy to build with. I spent a pretty penny on the Antec 900 when it came out and never liked it very much. It looks cool but cleaning fans, removing drives and cable management was a pain. There was no bottom venting for the PSU, which didn't make much sense to me and I was tired of blinding LED lights.

5 out of 5 eggsIncluded 2.5" drive adapter

Pros: A case with filters, no dust bunnies inside.
Large, takes large cards
Holds a 2.5" drive with included drive holders

Cons: I would love if it had a solid top, in case of a spill.This is the only design change I would make.
You probably want to buy a card reader for extra options beyond USB. Easily added

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case

Pros: Solid construction
Plenty of room
Grommets for cable routing
Plenty of screws and hardware for mounting everything

Cons: Flimsy HD sleds
Cheesy LED lights on the fans

Other Thoughts: Fans are a solid meh -- they're certainly not the worst fans to ship with a case, but you can do better
Also, as others have noted, the fan control knob is an odd and unnecessary feature

5 out of 5 eggsPlenty of room with great airflow

Pros: This case has a lot going for it. Good solid construction is present throughout: rubber grommets for cable management, good alignment of the mobo standoff screws to the external ports / slots, and plenty of inlet & outlet vents for good airflow.

There is an internal fan mount behind the hard drive bays, the top of which comes right to the second PCI slot (usually where the first PCI-E card is on most ATX motherboards). This means you can point a fan directly at your graphics card(s) for a better cooling loop. I can comfortably fit two 3-fan extended GTX 770 cards and still have clearance for the internal case fan. My cards haven't gone above 55 C under load.

Finally, speaking of fans, pretty much everything is filtered. The top, front, and bottom two (yep!) inlet fan mounts all have dust covers or filters. The attention to airflow in the design of this case is excellent.

Cons: There are a few nitpicks that I'm not wild about. First, there's an external fan speed controller, which is sort of a weird "feature" to have. I'd like it much better if they included a fan controller splitter/circuit for one of the motherboard fan connectors (which would be powered by the 12V rails, but controlled by the motherboard pins).

Also, the vent placement in the side panels can pretty much defeat the purpose of the front intake fans, so you may get better results closing them off somehow and directing airflow into the main part of the case.

Also, there's no option to screw-mount hard drives. I honestly don't know why case manufacturers require the use of their proprietary quick-mount bays. I like my drives mounted and grounded securely, and the quick-mount bays in this case have a fair bit of play in them.

Other Thoughts: At the typical sale price (50-60), it's a great deal. Very spacious, plenty of options for cooling and support for a wide variety of fan sizes, and quality construction throughout. Probably the most bang for the buck I've ever gotten from a computer case.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Great looking without looking too crazy.
-Great price
-Lots of room
-Plenty of space for fans
-Worked perfect for my needs.
-Lots of dust filters from factory
-Good cable management

Cons: There were three issues that upset me when it arrived. The box wasn't damaged, so this came from the factory this way. One of the tabs on the rear of the case that the side panel can be "locked" with was bent at a 45 degree angle and had to be bent back. And one of the expansion slot doors was not put together during manufacturing and is messed up permanently. It didn't bother me enough to mess with getting another, or for removing an egg.

Other Thoughts: I bought two 120mm fans for the top of the case and bolted them in. When I'm playing a heavy pulling game, I take the dust filter off and I can feel those two top fans really pull the hot air out the top.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case!

Pros: no tools needed
easy to clean vented case w/filters

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The case is equipped with easy to detach filter screens to prevent dust buildup. the only place they didn't put a filter on was the side of the case - otherwise it's an awesome case.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case but...

Pros: - Solid constructed case
- Sleek black flavor throughout
- Case filter panels do require a bit of force, but reassurance is met with its rigid design
- Front case 120mm fans with aggressive looking red leds
- Spacious for a multitude of air/water cooling options
- Tons of space for multiple HDD/SSD
- Fan controller works for me. Yes, I will say knob is slightly flimsy, not a huge problem if you go easy.
- Quite large for a Mid size, can easily fit an ATX board and the largest dedicated graphics card.
- Enough width to fit a 6 inch tower cpu cooler.
- Very Cheap for a very solid case.
- Cable management? Hell yes.
- Amazing airflow.

Cons: - I can also agree that HDD/SSD brackets are flimsy. No they will not break under mediocre stress bending.
- Arrived with dented side panel handles towards the back, some of the "paint" chipped off, but this was most likely the shipping cause.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend, solid case for a solid low price. This case is perfect for those who want to do later upgrade which is also my intentions. Who knows, water cooling, racks of SSDs, doubling up on GPUs in SLI, more fans, etc are all possible with this case.
