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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsupdated review, still highly recommended

Pros: i have already written a review on this case, but I have noticed a couple of things and decided to write another updated one. First of all, I am still giving this case 5 eggs. The amount of features, such as USB 2 and 3.0, not being too thin metal, and actually being wide enough to be able to mount 92mm heatsinks (i used silverstone AR02 on all 4 of my builds with this case) and the included fans that are enough for every day usage for most people, this thing is a great case. It also comes with plenty of extra screws and hardware, which isn't the case with alot of products in this price range. The instructions aren't extremely detailed, but diagrams and instructions that they include is enough to understand what is supposed to be mounted where.

Cons: In the instructions, which must have been updated since the last time I bought this case (probably about 8 months ago), it tells you the SSD should be mounted at the bottom and the mechanical HDD to be mounted under the DVD trays. this poses a few problems. first of all, if you are using an aftermarket cooler with push/pull, you have no room to get the SATA and power connectors on the mech HDD and still use the push fan. also, the rubber grommets on the bottom of the case are meant for mech HDDs to dampen sound and vibration, so why would Rosewill suggest installing an SSD on rubber mounts when they make almost no vibrations? i tried to do it the way Rosewill suggested, but without ample room to connect power/SATA, I moved mech HDD to bottom mount where I have always installed it in my last 4 builds. All of my other builds in this case didn't include a second drive, so with this newest build I also had an SSD. What I ended up doing was using velcro and mounting it at the bottom of the 3.5'' HDD cage(under DVD drives), which worked and gave me more than enough room to get power/SATA connectors to it without being to close to my push fan.

Other Thoughts: This case has almost NO cable management to speak of, but again, for the price and all the other features you get, I don't feel it's right to knock an egg off even for that. If you do your research first, and know that there won't be any huge graphics cards or other products producing massive amounts of heat, this is a GREAT case for building a great pc. I put APU's in mine, so the only piece of hardware that produces alot of heat is the cpu, and with the right cooler, you won't have any overheating problems. I highly recommend this case

4 out of 5 eggsSolid, simple case with front USB 3.0

Pros: Overall pretty solid case. The look and feel of the case were better than I expected. I like having USB 3.0 ports on the front and the standoffs were already installed.

Cons: There isn't much cable management paths built in but I made do with a little creativity. The included cable ties were nice though!

Other Thoughts: The case came intact without any damage to itself or the box it was packed in. It came with plenty of screws, a few cable ties and decent documentation. It feels pretty well built and not as flimsy as some would have you believe. I have worked with really cheap cases and this definitely a couple notches above the cheapies. My last case was a Rosewell Challenger design from about 5 years ago and I’ve always regarded them as well constructed, well made cases for the price points they hit.

The case came with plenty of screws and screw types for mounting drives, motherboard and expansion cards, some wire ties, the documentation is decent enough and the front IO cables are well constructed with reinforcement near the ends to help them from easily breaking off. They also have small loops on them to help remove them from the motherboard and prevent wires from being pulled out. A nice touch was that the brass standoffs for mounting the motherboard were already installed though it didn’t appear any additional were included. This wasn’t an issue for my build though.

I have no issue with the included fans & they seem to do a decent job of moving air through my build. I like the subtle blue light from the front fan. The indicator lights on the PC front are very easy to see from above in low and normal lighting.
The locking mechanisms for the 5.25 drives and 3.5" drive work fine. I have my two optical drives locked in using them at the top but have the 3.5” drive mounted in the lowest internal bay using the included screws. I have a SSD drive mounted on the very bottom of the case but there are rubberized standoffs there as well if you wanted to place 3.5” mechanical drive.

My only real complaint is that there isn’t much in the way of cable routing or management built into the case. You can’t really run any wiring behind the motherboard as the standoffs sit right off the side of the case and aren’t raised. I made do with my build and used the interior of the case as best I could. The included cable ties were helpful and it would have been much wiser to have used a modular power supply to help cut down on clutter.

Overall I'm pleased with the case and that my components fit in without issue. It makes a nice new home for my gaming rig. My best advice would be to use a modular power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsThe others were right

Pros: Very good cooling with all 4 fans in.
Room for 2 3.5 drives and 1 2.5.
Preinstalled Standoffs.
Great airflow.
Small form factor which fits nice with my current desk setup.
Only 2 5.25 bays (As a picky person, it always bothered me having 4 of these and only using one. They make a ton of 3.5 toys, but few 5.25).
Easy to follow instructions.

Cons: Bottom hard drive hangs suspended. Not a big con, but I worry that it may shake and cause platter problems.
Couldn't find another problem so I'll stick with just the hard drive for now.

Other Thoughts: i3 haswell + nvidia 750 GTX TI.
The thing idles at 30 c and at full load over an hour, hits 50 c for both cards. Hard drives stay at 30-40 c depending on use.
Although my hardware reaches 50c, that is at full load which is difficult to do now-a-days with hardware surpassing gaming (unless you are a hardcore gamer and need 120 fps with sli/crossfire). Considering I am going air and play games/surf the net at minimal load, these temperatures are great.
My previous case had 3 80mm fans and 2 120 fans which were all "strategically" located infront of the hardware, and it still hit 60+c for both my cpu and processor until I went liquid. 50 c is a little high compared to liquid, but very stable for intel/nvidia hardware and for that, being in a microatx case with STOCK cooling, I give this thing a 5 star rating on cooling.
