5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Line-M

Pros: Size, Appearance, USB 3.0 Front Panel. I own two of these one with fx8350 and one intel 4770 both with r9 280x gfx cards. Cable managment is tough but I expected that with the amount I packed into this form factor. Keeps my gfx cards around 70 degrees on stock settings. Fits full size CPU coolers. This is just about the perfect size for a computer case in my opinion.

Cons: bent the back panel slightly removing cut outs for PCI and PCIe mounts other than that no complaints really.

Other Thoughts: Get a modular PSU for this case.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Lightweight, easy enough to work in, no sharp edges, lots of front panel ports. All internal cables well labeled.

Cons: The internal cable for the front panel headphone jack was about 1 inch too short. It terminates with two plugs, one for AC97 audio, one for HD audio. The AC97 plug was longer and could reach the audio socket on my motherboard, the HD audio plug could not.

Other Thoughts: Never did experience that "mystic ambiance" created by the blue LED incorporated into the front cooing fan.

Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprising nice

Pros: Clean outside appearance, good air flow for effective cooling, extra mounting holes in the base for a standard HDD, accommodates a 120mm radiator for water cooling, front USB 2 and 3 ports. Pleasing blue glow from the included front fan. I expect good service from this fan; it is similar to the one in my Challenger case that has run flawlessly for 3 years.

Cons: The case cutout behind the motherboard does not line up with the CPU location for my AMD motherboard. If installing a water cooler, the bracket must be inserted from the back of the mobo before installing the mobo in the case. Since this a one-time issue, I did not deduct any eggs. Also, the supplied front fan does not support PWM for automatic speed control from the mobo. Fortunately, the fan is fairly quiet.

Other Thoughts: I moved components from an older, second hand case. That old case could barely keep an Athlon II 2.4 GHz chip from overheating due to poor airflow. I upgraded to a Phenom 3.0 GHz CPU and added water cooling. CPU temp now 30C and mobo 33C; this is about 10 degrees cooler than the slower CPU in the old case. I and my spouse are pleased with the performance and low noise. The radiator had to be installed in a "pusher" arrangement; that is the radiator mounts against the inside of the back of the case and the fan mounts inside of the radiator.

This is not a case for a heavy duty server build. For a HTPC or Internet browsing machine, it is a perfect choice.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work for me

Pros: USB 3.0, good reviews, price

Cons: Flimsy construction, poor fit in the DVD drive bays, very little room for the power and SATA connectors on the DVD

Other Thoughts: I purchased this based on the reviews and the two 3.0 USB ports on the front. My previous build used the Cougar MG100 which I think is a much better built case and without the fit problems of this case.

3 out of 5 eggsThe Rosewill line M

Pros: The only pros that I could possibly give this case would be the fact that it has 4 usb ports in the front and comes with a half decent airflow system with LED lighting.

Cons: This case has so a ton of design mistakes. First of all There is absolutely no cable management at all. Not even a little bit. No matter where you try to stuff your psu wires, you will still be able to see them hanging all over the place, and if you some how manage to get all the wires in the back of the case, behind your motherboard, you end up bending the cheap metal of your side panel. It's like the person who designed this case had no idea that people would actually put computer parts in it. Like I said, the metal in this case is extreme flimsy and not good quality, and I'm going to hold back and not talk about the looks of this case since it's 40-60$.
It is also not a good idea if you plan on ever watercooling because 1. you can only have a cooling system with a 120mm radiator and 2. You will kink your tubes because of the compactness of the case
and I apologize to readers for ranting so long. This case made it miserable to install my components.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on having a very low budget system, plan on never upgrading your system, and don't mind losing your dignity, then look no further, the Rosewill Line M will be absolutely perfect for you!!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price
2 x USB 3.0 Ports
Includes 2 x 120 mm fans - supports up to 4 120 mm fans
Panels easy to remove

Cons: Case isn't super sturdy

Other Thoughts: Clean looking, great value mATX case. No fitment issues with my motherboard (Z97M OC Formula) or PSU (Rosewill Hive-750). Material isn't super sturdy, but it get s the job done. Easy 5.25" and 3.5" drive installation and room for one 2.5" SSD at the bottom of the case. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a mATX case.

4 out of 5 eggsline-m case

Pros: 4 front USB including 2x USB 3
small form and looks neat
inside space is big enough

Cons: not very solid material (at least for my standard)
no cable management

Other Thoughts: the features of this case excellent. it has almost everything you need except cable management. for a small form factor setup, this is not a bad choice, especially at this price range. 1 egg off for the cons mentioned above.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Great, Sturdy case. I like the lights, and the Micro ATX was small enough to fit under my desk. Also, shipping was incredible, as I got this item two days after it was ordered. I'm in Arkansas, and it shipped from Tennessee, so I'm not sure if that helped, but it was great for me.

Cons: Only problem I had was with the notches on the removable panel. They were kinda flimsy, one bent, so I had to flatten it down.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what could be bad about this case. What's not to like? Great shipping, great fans, great space, great speaker, great case! All I had trouble with was a notch because I was stupid and put it in the wrong place, the... uh... twisted... But never mind that, it's a great case, and I suggest that you buy it!
Save time and money with the Line-M.
This is Jason, signing out.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Line M

Pros: Looking for something simple and not to big.
Fits 4-120 mm zalman f3 fans @ 1500 rpm nice.
Removed the rear one and replaced it with the iiqmax 120 all in 1 cooler. Pull config on that.

Cons: Not quite enough room to mount the radiator in push config!
Still works great.

Other Thoughts: As a micro atx case it does all I need/expected, oh and get the usb 3.0 to 2.0 converter here at newegg if you don't have usb 3.0 on your board like me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Case

Pros: - Nice textured black finish
- 2 USB 3.0 on front panel
- Screw-less drive bays
- Bottom HDD mount

Cons: - Case panels can be hard to remove/replace
- No cable routing (see comments)

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because of the price and because it was highly reviewed, and I would have to agree with the rest of the reviews, it is a great case! I wanted some front panel USB 3.0 and this was one of the cheapest cases that had that in the microATX form factor. After receiving it I immediately set to work building a computer in it. The build went pretty smoothly where the case is concerned. Here are a few tips if you are building in this case:

- Remove the plastic drive bay covers for the bays you are going to use BEFORE you attach any of the front panel connections to your motherboard. The bay covers can only be removed from the back and the cables are fixed to the plastic part of the front.

- Look in your hardware bag for the tool that will help you cleanly remove unneeded motherboard mounting hardware (I found it after I had removed them with pliers and scratched the case)

The cons I have listed above are the only real problems I had. I found the side panel difficult to remove, but this is a problem with a LOT of cases. The other con, cable routing, might just be indicative of the microATX form factor. What I mean is that in larger cases, you can rout some cables around the back to keep thing clean and out of the way of your airflow, this case unfortunately does not have any room around back. The main compartment, however, has plenty of space.
