4 out of 5 eggsNot bad so far.

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: Got my case last night. Seems really nice. Have yet to turn it on though. I spent all afternoon and evening putting the parts in only to find that the water cooling for my processor has some issues (see below.

Cons: Will I will update if I find any once I turn it on but could possible use a little more clearance up top for if someone wants to install water cooling.

Other Thoughts: For those of you looking to possibly do water cooling, H100i (and I am assuming by default that the fan size is the same any other Corsair cooling) won't fit due to the fans being too thick, at least with my ASUS Maximus Hero VII. There isn't enough space between the top of the motherboard and the top of the case to fit it as I found out last night trying to fit everything together. Might want to look into a different case, small motherboard, getting different fans, or modifying the case outright. Great case otherwise.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case - Buy it

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: I am completely impressed with this case. It has a well thought out design with the builder in mind. There is plenty of room for a big heatsink. I installed the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and there is room to close the side door with a 120mm fan on it. Actually, the fan is mounted back enough to allow the door to slide shut without hitting the top of the heat sink. There are other smart features like the mounting screws are preinstalled for an ATX motherboard. The Asus Maximus Hero VI that I installed lined up perfectly. If you use a smaller board, just remove the unused screws. While I did not install a water cooler, it will easily accommodate one. The sata dock on the top is another smart feature I liked.

Cons: The harddrive tray pins that go in to the hd screw holes, pop out too easy when your squeezing in the hd. You have to pop out the hd to push them back in. It’s not a big deal though.

Other Thoughts: This is just a well thought out computer case that’s priced extremely well for all that you get. It improved my build time. I would give this case a higher rating if there were more eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case.

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: 4 Case fans included. Top side access ports are great. Trays for hard drives are fantastic. Great airflow.

Cons: The blue plastic trim feels kind of cheap. Not a lot of room to store cables in the back of the case. Not really a fan of the blue side window, but its not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: The blue on the outside of the case is not as bright as shown in the pictures, which is a good thing for me. The side fan has to be taken out in order to fit a Cooler Master 212 EVO, not a big deal as I put the fan underneath the DVD drive which provides great airflow. The case is quiet and sturdy. I am really happy with it considering price drove my purchase decision more than anything.

5 out of 5 eggsI LOVE THIS CASE!!!!

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: extreme amounts of room, 5 fans, this case has everything i wanted and more. i would instantly suggest this case to anyone wanting to build a gaming rig.

Cons: the two front led fans are semi loud, however with me using headphones the majority of the time it isn't extremely noticeable.

Other Thoughts: i only wish that i could make the led's pulse. that is the only thing i can think of that would make it better.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: Its blue and it lights up. What more do you need? And it has a ton of fans, tons of USB ports and even an external SATA dock on the top. Plenty of space in the case, cooling isn't an issue at all and its very pretty to look at. Not as quiet as I was expecting, but that's probably due to having all the fans running. I imagine it would still run quite cool and a bit quieter if you only plugged in 2 or 3 of the fans, as they aren't all necessary unless you are running a pretty serious gaming rig or something.

Cons: Seems like the case screws on the back don't fit quite properly and the sides are kind of a pain to put back on, but otherwise no complaints.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love the blue lights and the tinted side window on the case, although its location next to my desk means I don't see the window at all. The lights aren't too bright, I can sleep with the computer on all night without a problem. I don't even know what to do with all the USB ports on the front panel, I've never had a computer with that many ports.

A bit larger case than I was expecting, but it fits every component I've installed so far with no problems. The very top internal drive bay does seem to have a bit of a squeeze since the components for the top panel are right above it, but I just used the bay below it and haven't had any issues. Absolutely adore this case.

3 out of 5 eggsFantastic... for a while.

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: The case is is spacious, good cable management options.
The fans are nice and really good for stock case fans.
You can probably fit most any super long video card in it. I also love the bottom-mount PSU placement.

This case makes for an awesome and neat-looking build.

Cons: Alright... cons:
After about one year of ownership, the mesh metal panels(top and front) have begun showing rust. The case is just out of warranty so I cannot get it replaced. I think the powder coat on it was improperly set and simply took this amount of time to wear. This is my major con. The room this computer is in has fairly dry air. There are other computers and metal and electrical equipment in the same room and none of it shows any traces of rust. I am really at a loss.

Aside from this, any small cons I had are petty and preferential. Nothing major or of note.

Other Thoughts: I wish I could find replacement panels for the ones that have rusted. I actually got this for my fiancee in Christmas of 2013. He loves the case and we don't want to have to find a different one. It seems like Holiday purchases should lend some warranty extension through at least mid-January; they don't. I believe my issue to be an isolated event.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK - Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Blue Edition - Five Fans Included, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

Pros: This case was overall pretty good in most of its aspects with just a few snags along the way throughout my build.
1. The included fans are a FANTASTIC way to save money to cool your build since it comes with 5 of them, I see this as a huge plus in my experience as many people don't really know much about or don't have the budget for fans.
2. 3.5" drive bays are basically just clip-on brackets but surprisingly sturdy. Easy to pull-out, mount, and re-install.
3. The filtered intakes along the front AND EVEN along whole bottom were a very nice touch that Rosewill included with this case, heck, even the 5.25" bay covers have a foam-like pad to keep dust out.
4. PLENTY OF SPACE. Room for sooooo many activities! Whether they are upgrades or a hot off the press, no-compromise build, I'm sure this case could handle it.

Cons: *sigh* The positives are out there, and now come the negatives...
1. The 3.5" cage mounting bracket DOES NOT COME OUT. This makes it difficult to change or replace the front panel fans and also gets in the way of airflow even though the bracket does have room for some airflow, I would've liked to see that option available
2. I get that this is a blue edition case, but the blue tinted side-panel window was a little overkill. I get that this really isn't an inconvenience for most people, but I feel the need to point it out. The tint makes to difficult to see inside the case without lighting, and even then, all your components are BLUE.
Cable management was a tad....uncomfortable. There really isn't much space between the motherboard tray and the panel once it's closed and no where to really tie your cables to unless you went out of your way to do so (I'm talking about you zip-ties). Also, the side panel fan's cable looks absolutely terrible if you don't have a motherboard with bottom-mounted fan connectors. The board I used had three top-mounted connectors and a rear, and the LEAST terrible looking one was obviously the rear and even then the excess cable had to be zip-tied in order to prevent it from sitting and melting on the graphics card.
4. LIQUID COOLERS BE WARNED. This case ONLY supports a radiator WITHOUT IT'S FANS. Either I didn't research enough into this build or I'm just stupid for not paying attention. I paired an H100i with the case to test the compatibility and was discouraged when I had to route the fan cables out the back and up to the top of the case where the fans must be placed. Very disappointing.
5. The 5.25" bays have these rather...unappealing slot covers that must be twisted and pulled of like the plastic parts from that model car your building, except these parts are METAL. After removal they leave sharp point that need to be filed down unless you want the pain of a thousand daggers on your finger when you're installing an optical drive.

Other Thoughts: YES, THERE WERE MORE CONS THAN PROS and YES, I DID WRITE MORE ON THEM. But, don't let this review necessarily drive you straight away from this case. The cons were what problems that I thought would've been easily avoided, HOWEVER, LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THIS CASE IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE SEEN AT THIS PRICE POINT. Easy component mounting and plenty of space for bigger builds, or our resident upgraders out there. The average user will have no problems out of this case which after that thought, my initial three stars rating a the time of this seemed too much like a personal vendetta, which is why I threw it a bone and gave it that extra star.
