4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Very cheap, sturdy for it's price, and looks very nice.

Cons: The cords running from the front panel need to be about an inch longer. They still worked, but it seemed like there was a little more tension on the cord when plugged in the MoBo than I would have liked.

Other Thoughts: Case looks very nice in person, the front "brushed metal" parts are actually brushed plastic. It's convincing until you touch it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money. Loud fan.

Pros: Has enough features for a basic build. Will fit and support high-end main components. It's cheap and effective.
Looks nice.
Expected side panel removal method.

Cons: Loud front intake fan. -1 egg worthy.
5 egg if a quieter intake fan ships with the unit.

Other Thoughts: The front fan was too loud. I had to disconnect it to keep the noise down. The fan was moving a lot of air, to it's credit. However it was too loud and a bit overkill.

I would prefer a fan that won't move as much air, but is quieter and give me peace of mind.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper little case.

Pros: Great inexpensive case. Good quality. Power button has a great click. The 2 fans that come with it are nice and quiet. Header connections are all solid. Super light-weight!

Cons: Lightweight = thin metal = not as durable? Don't play soccer with it. Otherwise... disregard.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's a $30 case.

Pros: A good value - fairly priced and it's rather nice looking.

Cons: 1. Tall memory may not fit.
Depending on the orientation of the slots on your board, tall RAM sticks (ie with heat sink fins) will not fit. The hard drive will sit about an inch over the slots. I overcame this by using a couple of old drive rails mounted above the DVD drive and routing the front panel wires over it. I'm just hosed if I want to add another HDD later on. If necessary, I may consider dremeling an opening in the front metal to accommodate any additions.

2. Sharpness inside!
I've worked with a lot of different cases and thus I am fully aware that most have some sharp edges. This case has a LOT of sharp edges. Be extra cautious, or wear gloves or something.

3. The PSU doesn't seat very well. Also, there's a little metal tab at the upper left of the PSU opening that interfered with the AC socket. It got bent out of the way.

Other Thoughts: In spite of the few problems, this case is OK. The little foam feet on the bottom are kind of chintzy, and the metal is a bit thin. But I'm not going to be using this for a step stool or anything.

If you want a swifty zoom zoom case, you may want look elsewhere. If you just want a decent case at a good price, this is a pretty good choice.

3 out of 5 eggsAudio Jack Problems

Pros: Fans are actually really quite and do I great job keeping cool inside. I've been running a stock cpu headsink and fan and I haven't seen my temperature go past 40C! Great airflow!
AMD Athlon X3 Rana 3.3GHZ 455 Triple Core 95W CPU Idle Temp. was 19C!
4GB DDR3 RAM 1333 MHz
MSI Radeon HD7770 GHz Edition 1GB Idle Temp. 21C!
ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ Motherboard Idle temp. 20C!
EXCELLENT COOLING FOR STOCK FANS!!!

Cons: Front Audio Jack is cheap. The day I had got the item, I was experiencing issues. 1 issue was that after about 30 minutes of having headphones in it my right headphone speaker would go out. At first I thought it was just the headphones until I had tested 5 other headphone and earbuds and realized it was not the headphones, it was the jack. Another issue with audio jack was it was hard to pull out the headphone cord and one day it ended up breaking the headphone jack into the computer and rendered it unusable. It kept my computer switching from Speaker to Headphone mode constantly, which made my CPU Utilization idle at 60-80%!!! In the end I was forced to buy a new case. I have already ordered another case because of this.

5 out of 5 eggscheap but classy!

Pros: Looks great for the price. Has solid feeling buttons (no wiggling here) and bright LEDs. Front panel usb 2.0 ports worked great. Case came with a plethora of screws and standoffs for the motherboard (no anthills with screwholes, which is a great feature for the price.

Cons: The side panels will warp easily if you set them down on the floor and uh...accidentally.. step on them. Try not to do this.

Other Thoughts: Comes with options to use HD Audio headers or old style AC 97 headers for the front panel mic and headphone jacks. Very versatile and will support a wide range of mobos and sound cards with audio headers.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price

Tiny

Very attractive

Cons: Tiny - yes, this is both a pro and a con. You need to plan ahead with this little box.

Other Thoughts: I’ve built 2 systems with this case and my 2nd build went much better because of my experience with the first. You don’t have a lot of room to work with and much in the way of cable management options.

I suggest:
Low profile CPU heatsink/fan
Low profile memory
Modular PS ( got a Corsair 430W 80 Plus mod for $25 after MIR on this site)

Once I got this system together—and it was pretty easy with a little planning, I couldn’t have been happier. It is one of the coolest looking little boxes I’ve seen. I t’s very simple with a gigantic power button right in the middle and it shines like a diamond. Surprisingly sturdy too.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: You cannot mount Memory sticks that have cooling fins - the hard dries cover the second memory stick slot. Mounting a standard Power supply can be challenging - look for a short PS to save grief. The case has very short bottom pads making air access to the front fan extremely limited!! The width of the case is such that running the front panel cables inside is crazy!!! Much interference with a DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: Would I buy another case like this? Too late, I ordered two to start with, and the customer is leaning towards buying five more systems because he "likes the look of the box"....

5 out of 5 eggsgood but beware

Pros: it's a good looking case, like most rosewill cases I have bought. pretty good airflow with the pre installed fans that don't make much noise.

Cons: the only little thing is that with the msi mobo that I chose (probably the same problem with most mobos) a normal 3.5 inch HHD will stick out over the second RAM stick so depending on the RAMs heatsink, you may have a little problem. My ram has a pretty big heatsink and it fits fine but a little bigger and i wouldn't have been happy with my choices :P
