5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: -Very big
-Excellent cooling
-Lots of HDD bays
-Rails **(see other)**

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: -A LOT of people have complained about having trouble to rail mount this case. I was nervous before ordering any rails for it, but after looking around plenty of forums I ended up buying the rosewill rails that were made for this case ( Rosewill RSV-R26LX - 26" 3-Section Ball-Bearing Sliding Rail Kit, mine was an open box item). These rails are a little more difficult to align since the screws do not screw into the L-brackets but instead use bolts to tighten. I left the rails mounted to my rack loose when installing my server case and I was able to mount it first try, then I just tightened everything up when it was fully installed.
I have a Dell PS38S 42U cabinet, I am not sure if the door has any extra room compared to other cabinets (this is the only one I have ever owned) but my door closes without issue, as many others said this was another problem they had. The bolts make the handles/ears rise off of the vertical rack beam about 1/3" but I do not need to have it flush.
All in all, no issues and I have an excellent case that I can slide in and out of my rack without any problems.

4 out of 5 eggsgood server case

Pros: good server case fans are not loud and move air well. the steel is sturdy and don't flex vary much installing the main board and psu was easy.. wiring the front panel was easy over all installation was smooth.

my system is
SuperMicro X8DTE
24gb EEC REG
6 3TB hard drives
4 2TB hard drives
2x 80gb boot drive
850watt PSU
and a video card because i do some video editing on it and folding...

Cons: The fans have 4pin molex connectors like you see on older hard drives I wish they had the 3 pin main bored header plug with a tac... i had 3 older 4pin PMW fans i put in there behind the hard drives and 2 3 pin fans for the rear exhaust..
the hard drive cages are cheep and flex a lot. the mounting hardware for the hhd's is good but sliding the cage in to the case is a real pain in the BUT*..

5 out of 5 eggsProfessional grade case at a great price

Pros: -extremely well built, made to last several hardware cycles
-ridiculous amount of space inside, fits even the largest PCIE cards
-fan caddie fits any 120mm delta I've tried so far

Cons: -lock isn't very durable, you can pull the front door down with a bit of force
-power and reset buttons aren't very strong either, guaranteed to break if you push them enough times
-drive sleds are very low quality and it is difficult insert the loaded sleds into the HDD module unless you completely remove the fan caddie or slide the HDD module out the front

Other Thoughts: So far I've purchased multiple to facilitate GPU mining rigs and this has been the case I've continuously returned to.

5 out of 5 eggsStudy, heavy duty, reliable.

Pros: Sturdy steel construction
Strong cages, People who have issues with the slides on the top and bottom don't realize they can pinch the holding tabs to make them hold better.
Plastic rails are both a blessing and a con, they are not super sturdy, but they are good, and work well.
Quiet Fans, I have seen comments both ways on this, but the noctua's I have installed in my RSV-4000 are actually twice as loud as the 8 in this case. I thought my noctuas would be quieter, but I have only found they move more air.
Excellent build all around, and supports SSI-EEB though they don't claim that, my S2600CP has been fully mounted with zero missing holes, or fixed standoffs.

I would totally get this for all my servers, but I would like to have the quickmount cages instead. But They should be interchangeable, the 4 drive cages from my RSV-4000 Cases do fit perfectly into this one as well, so I would be willing to buy a

Cons: Fans with fan-headers would be great, but far from a real problem, I would rather convert from fan-header to molex than the other way around.
Over all I love these cases, and would only request that they always support up to SSI-EEB and have all the supported boards listed, along with the names of the power supplies it supports.

Other Thoughts: Case is very long, make sure your rack is either 4 post, or you are willing to have it sticking out. I custom built my rack to be 36" long and it still fills the rack very well. :P
In terms of others most of anything I want to say is already in the PRO's.
One comment though - Name of the plate that the ATX hole is plugged with so I can get a proper redundant power supply for this case. Totally awesome case.

Options that work:
This cage is interchangeable with the current case cages:
With how they are mounted, these should also work: (Hot swappable)
Another suggestion is to get these Rails(If they ever come back in stock):

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case but not without flaws

Pros: - Allows for 15 3.5" internal drives in 3 cages of 5 drives, each with a dedicated 120MM fan
- Tool less drive drive attachments
- Includes 6 x 120mm fans and 2 x 80mm rear exhaust fans in total
- Tons of space for motherboard and expansion cards
- Decent room for large cooler
- Very study construction
- Attractive face with foam filter

Cons: - Very little clearance between hard drives
- Oh the molex! All included fans have a molex male and female, which leads to a lot of cable clutter and the Molex connectors are of poor quality - kind of a pain to plug in and unplug, which you will be doing a lot of
- Drive cages can be difficult to remove and insert smoothly. Sometimes the little brackets pops off and I had to take a plier to the little prongs to better prevent them from popping off
- Have to be careful not to snag the power cables for hte cage fans when sliding cages in and out
- Some sharp edges (minor)
- A couple of wholes were not drilled very well (also minor, screws still grab)
- Absolutely zero cable management
- Only USB 2.0 ports on the front

Other Thoughts: While there are some downsides, I do really like the case. For the price point, it is the case to beat I think. I am investing more money than I expected in new cables and cable management due to the shear size of the thing and the additional clutter caused by all the Moldex connectors and associated cabling but it sure beats getting this case and then having to buy 8 new fans. In the end, it was a smart decision for them to equip it as is.

I do miss having USB 3.0 on the front panel, maybe they will have an updated model in the near future properly equipped. Its just helpful if you need to boot off of a USB 3.0 thumb or drive to install your OS or to transfer some data. Having to get to the rear of the unit kind of sucks depending on your racking situation.

I bought a different cooler for the case because I suspect it would not fit my Thermaltake Hyper 212. I ended up picking up an Arctic Freezer i11 and it fits with room to spare. This is a less capable cooler but keeps my 130 watt CPU happy and ambient temperatures are excellent with all of the included fans.

Cable management is non-existent here. Even the addition of a small bag of zip ties and adhesive anchors would have been helpful. If you care about cable management, look into swapping out the case fans, adding a fan controller or power hub, getting some zip ties and anchors, and planning out your SATA cable lengths. I opted for rounded SATA cables of mixed lengths. On my setup, I ended up getting 5 each of 18", 24", and 36" which leaves some room for slack.

With room to spare between the second bank of fans and my ATX mobo, I am looking into adding a slightly elevated plastic surface in this area and relocating my SSD drives there. This would allow for a lot of cabling to go under the plastic and out of view and out of the way of the airflow. Simple plastic sheet with screw holes to make use of unused motherboard stand-offs.

5 out of 5 eggsSo much room for activities!

Pros: 15 drive bays! Simple, really sturdy, and keeps everything nice and cool even while fully loaded. I also have a 4U Lian Li rackmount case and while that one looks a tad nicer, this one is just as good at a way better price.

Cons: Not even one.

Other Thoughts: First Rosewill purchase. Not disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsCase works pretty well, wish there was just a bit more room behind the drives.

Pros: It's large enough to easily fit my 850watt modular PSU and Supermicro X8DT6-F board. The fans move a decent amount of air though I already replaced the rear 80mm fans with PWM fans and will get three 120MM PWM fans for the middle fans. The drive bays are large enough to fit all the drives and there will be a little space for airflow once my system is complete. I will be starting off with a seven drive RaidZ3 eventually expanding to two vDev's and a total of 14 drives. I currently have the drives staggered with three in one bay and two in the others with quite a bit of airflow.

Cons: When the bays are filled the airflow will require stronger fans. While doing a drive burn in with BadBlocks the temps were getting up to 36c, the room was around 76F at the time so when I expand the vDev the fans will have to move more air.

I would have prefered to have another inch or two of space behind where the drives mount for plugging in and arranging cables as well as something below the middle fans to help control the airflow and create a better push/pull configuration. Right now I am guessing that the middle fans are not working as well as they could but some foam rubber will fix that when I get a chance.

Other Thoughts: I have a pair of hyper 212Evo's in this for cooling. Since I am not using this in a datacenter I just did a little cave man engineering and knocked a couple dents where the coolers sit to give them clearance so the top will fit on. If I had not had them already mounted to the MoBo I would have just given the copper heat pipes a trim to make them fit.

The included fans are not even Rosewill fans, they are BOK brand Model BDM12025S .10A draw and 1600RPM for the information I can find. And in the 35 to 45CFM range for the 120MM fans. The 80MM fans are BOK brand BDM8025S .10A draw and 2000 RPM, I would estimate they move around 12CFM as the fans I replaced them with move that at their lowest RPM and were fairly close to the same flow. I replaced the 80MM fans with Cooler Master Blade Master fans and will likely use the same for the middle 120MM fans and get a faster nonPWM fan for the front fans rather than to try and use PWM fans that far forward.

Overall I think the case was well worth it and at a good price point for a home user who wants a lot of space for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsWow Room (echo Wow Room --- wow room)

Pros: Room to work with, inexpensive considering the drive space, steel manufacturing, SSI EEB heatsink drilled, fantastic air flow

Cons: - I received 11 motherboard mounts.
- fan molex connectors
- doesn't make my toast

Other Thoughts: I love this case. Mounting for SSI EEB, SSI CEB, EATX, ATX, mATX, and I assume ITX. I connected the molex powered fans, with some issue as they are inexpensive connectors, but seriously, this is my man cave server, so the first thing I did was swap out the back 2 80mm and the three front 120mm fans for fans with lights. AHA.
My old school S5000PSL fit great. The heatsink screws (which tighten to the motherboard tray in this generation) worked, possibly a bit short, but they connected. The air flow with fans pushing air on drives and fans pulling air across drives is going to save me a lot of head aches.
No complaints from me. The molex connectors are flimsy, but I swapped out 5 out of 8 immediately - and for all intents purposes, I did have them running just for testing before racking the case anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter build quality than expected

Pros: -Good build quality for the price.
-Lots of fans
-Easy to remove drive bays for quicker install of a bunch of disks
-Price compared to competition

Cons: -Each individual fan has it's own 4-pin Molex connector. I hate these things so to have 8 of them running around the case is a huge pain. I'll probably end up joining them in groups so there's fewer connectors.
-Heavy, maybe this isn't a con? It's all steel, it a server case, it should be heavy.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Rosewill product and beat my expectations on build quality. I envisioned getting something that had poor fit and finish and was ready to fall apart. It's built solid, and for the price is hard to beat. I'm going to guess that the fans aren't of high quality and will start to fail in the first couple years, but that's OK, they should be easy/cheap to replace, the case itself should be good for many years to come.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: - Massive amount of room....MASSIVE
- Fits practically any motherboard.. as always double check to be sure though
- So many fans... seriously... fans... everywhere
- Price... really.. this is why you're here... don't pretend

Cons: - Drive cages don't really have guides... you just ram them in until they click
- Drive cages like to eat fan power cables... watch those carefully when you're jamming the cage in as they're suicidal
- Screws for the fans on the drive cage are made of some sort of metal/butter alloy so strip extremely easily if you're swapping fans

Other Thoughts: The price outweighs the cons completely... even at a 100$ more this case is a deal
I wish they had an optional backplane to make the drives cages hot swappable or another model with this feature

tl;dr - 15!!! PRICE!!!
