5 out of 5 eggsGreat value!

Pros: This case from Rosewill looks great and is a steal at this price. Has plenty of room for top of the line graphics cards if you're worried about space. Also has removable panels that lets you install more fans if you so desire. I'd highly recommend this case to anyone not wanting to splurge on a case but still wants quality.

Cons: Fan control knob is kinda flimsy. Removable filter on top is kind of a pain to get off; you really have to put some force behind it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with this case.

Pros: Tons and tons of room. 3 QUIET fans with removable dust covers for easy cleaning. Cable management. Removable internal drive bays. Two USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 front ports. Front audio and mic jacks. Front e-SATA port. Appealing design for the utilitarian.

Cons: The manual could use slightly more detail, but does a good enough job. The fan controller is a bit gimmicky, and you may have trouble getting the two front fan connectors to reach the motherboard if you decide not to hook it up.

Other Thoughts: Just got it in today and the build was quick and easy. Held my hand inside the case after it was all set up and could really feel the airflow pumping through. Came with plenty of extra screws and some zip ties to get all my cables in order. Some tips I can pass on after going through the build:

Keyless external bays- keep turning towards Unlock until it comes off by itself. Remove both of the case's side panels as there is another keyless lock on the other side. Manual was a little unclear on these in whether you needed to keep turning or try and pull them off. A few seconds of attempts solved it, but I can see where it could be an issue.

Motherboard mounting- as I think another review pointed out, any upraised screw holes for the motherboard mount will NOT need an offset spacer nut placed in. That review stuck in my mind while I was building, worth repeating to save some headaches.

4 out of 5 eggsPlenty of room

Pros: There was plenty of routing options and the stock fans are plenty for what I am doing with my build as of now. See cons.

Cons: The drive bays are made of a plastic that seem flimsy but they make mounting your 3.5" and 2.5" extremely simple with a snap (literally). I am saddened that I cannot remove the other drive bays also because there are two perfectly fine fans that cannot supply air because of the bays that are in the way. Also it is kind've large for a mid-tower case. Regardless, it is a good case.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: I really like the huge amount of space this thing has and it was much larger than I originally thought. More like a full tower rather than a mid-tower. The filters and all of the fan slots are an added plus. The grommets and hidden side compartment are nice and they reduce the clutter of bulky psu wiring. Overall this is a very good case and I'm glad I didn't opt for a cheaper one.

Cons: The manual is short, pretty much worthless and wouldn't be useful to someone who has novice computer building knowledge. The case is fully painted black, inside and out, so its a little difficult to see what you're doing while connecting things to the motherboard without an ample light source.

5 out of 5 eggsAbove all the competition

Pros: Fans, fans, fans, and more fans! This case is filled with potential cooling goodness! So spacious on the inside, and sleek looking on the outside! Cables don't stand a chance against this case, the hide-away is massive, allowing you to stuff away all the nasty wires your case has. The dust covers are so efficient and helpful, I was getting so tired of blowing out my case every month; things got... hairy. :P Rosewill definitely has listened to our prayers, this is a work from the Heavens!

Cons: Really heavy! But no big deal at all!

Other Thoughts: This case is massive, so expect plenty of empty space, which in some builds may look a little incomplete. You have no window on the side of the case, only a vent, so your Blue LEDs and whatnot will be invisible. But this case is definitely your top pick if you want a case that will keep your equipment cool, and make it look cool too.

4 out of 5 eggsNice & Roomy

Pros: The case is overall very satisfying, it comes with 3 nice sized fans pre-plugged into a fan controller. Inside the case is very roomy with lots of grommet holes for cable management.

Cons: The only gripe I have is when mounting the mother board, the location in height from the top side of the board to the bottom differs. Because of this I only fastened down the 4 corners for fear of cracking the board. It seems like the recessed motherboard tray is a bad idea.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a nice case with plenty of upgrading room on a budget, I highly recommend this case.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied

Pros: - Tons of room inside, suprisingly large for a Mid Tower case.
- Solid construction, quality seems good
- Nothing damaged upon receipt, nothing missing.
- Looks nice, very simple understated look. I did not want a case that looked like a UFO; this one fits the bill.
- Plenty of slots of hard drives

Cons: - I had a bit of trouble getting the drive access plates off. That might just be on me, though.
- I can't remember which connection it was for specifically, but on my motherboard (BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z87X 3D), the SATA connections are slightly obstructed by this case's curve. It doesn't prevent me from actually plugging them in, but it's not as clean as I'd like.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very pleased with this case. I would definitely buy it again, especially for the price ($50 total after rebate).
