2 out of 5 eggsGood ideas, flawed execution

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: Of all of the cases I've ever seen, it's certainly a blue one.

The ideas aren't bad. The 3.5 inch drive tray mounting, for example, is a nifty idea that lets you do toolless installation with no hassle, in theory. There's a lot of space for fans, and the airflow seems pretty good with all of them turning. You don't need many tools to get from start to finish on a build; a Phillips does fine.

The build quality overall isn't bad, and the case seems sturdy enough.

Cons: Unfortunately, the execution of those good ideas is lacking. The nifty 3.5 inch drive trays have a handle at the outer end, for example, to make them easy to pull out. Unfortunately, they are in exactly the wrong spot: the case is narrow enough that you have to use a right-angle cable for SATA drives, and the handle is right where a right-angle cable needs to plug in. I wound up cutting the handle off. There are several other almosts in the execution like that.

The power and disk lights are on the top of the case, which makes them hard to see if your system is under the desk. The same goes for the jacks up there.

My case also came with a few pieces missing, most notably the two front rubber feet (the two in back were there). The little studs that go int he drive screw holes were missing on 3 of the 6 3.5" drive trays.

And please, folks...if you're going to use lighted fans, *give us a way to turn the lights off!* My system lights up the whole room.

Other Thoughts: The case does its job...but if I had it to do over again, I'd pick something else.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: Tons of fans, and they're not horrible

Unbelievably good air flow and temps considering the size of the case

Blue LEDs match the blue highlights on the case

More space than one would think given the size of the case. I especially like the good inch of space behind the MB and the outer side. You have tons of space to thread your wires, even if you're horrible at it like I am.

Cons: None at all, it's a great mid-sized case.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the space!

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: Just about the perfect size. This case came with more than I thought I would need in terms of case fans, but I'm so glad it did. The cooling I get out of this case is phenomenal. When I have it on my desk, I can feel cool air blowing out.

The space is great. I love the open design and cable management options. Its so nice, I had my boss order me one for my work computer as well. The top SATA port has come in handy more than once when I've had to copy hard drive contents and re-format drives from other people's computers.

USB 3.0 is always a plus!

Cons: I know the side case fan is placed to be over the video card, but it conflicted with my CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Fan. Luckily, that's not much of a con because I can put that fan in a couple of other spots. Right now, its on the top panel.

Other Thoughts: My home version is the Blue and my work version is the Black. Love 'em both!

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

3 out of 5 eggsSolid case. Few Con's

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: Good price, quiet fans, plenty of USB ports.

Cons: When I was done putting all the hardware in and was ready to hook up all the fans I noticed something. The top 140mm fan's power cable was trapped around the case and had been cut when they riveted the case together. Rosewill was NOT helpful with getting it replaced. Also the audio jacks on top are a little flimsy, but not bad.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: comes with lots of case fans installed. options for even more to be installed. great cable management. sleek cool design. sturdy but lightweight. easy access usb ports on top of the machine. great deal. cooling options are redonkulus on this machine. slim water cool for complete internal is an option, but there are grommets for the hoses if you have/want a larger cooler.

Cons: easy access power button. this is good dont get me wrong, but with small children in and out of the office room. little fingers like to push buttons and investigate when its all lit up.

Other Thoughts: if you buy this and want the slim fan for the back go ahead and buy it now. i found it difficult to find slim fans in my local area. had to come back and reorder. not an issue but had to wait a couple of days before it was all set up like how i wanted it.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: Lots of quiet fans.
good cable management.
motherboard standoffs pre-installed for atx motherboard
screwless for standard HDD/CD drives had to use screws(included) for ssd
Lots of ventilation. case is almost all mesh
everything internal/external is painted a nice flat black
Case has feet on it to raise it about 1 inch off the ground, with vents on the bottom to allow you to mount your PSU with the fan pointing downward to draw cooler ambient air in.

Cons: HDD trays feel a bit flimsy when you have an ssd installed in them but SSDs are so light that I don't think it will be an issue.
Included fans had a pigtail molex connector. So when I first plugged the fans into the MB I had molex connectors dangling down. I just pulled the 2 power pins out of the 3 pin fan connector and clipped the molex plug out. Wish they would have used molex-3pin adapters instead of pinning them inline.
Power light is bright! I keep my pc on the floor next to my desk, one of the reasons I got this case was the front panel usbs/audio were on the top of the case but the power light is bright. I just unplugged it. I'm pretty sure i can tell if my pc is on or not

Wish cases had a way to disable all the blue fan leds. I might just go into the fan and cut the led leads. I'm not a big fan of lit cases.

None of these are reason to knock an egg off for, just mostly minor annoyances.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with a corsair HX750 PSU the atx/cpu connector were the exact right length to run behind the motherboard. I ziptied all the cables securely in the space provided behind the motherboard and had no issue getting the side panel and no bulging from it either.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case for the price

This review is from: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Blue Edition Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock

Pros: I got this case as part of a DIY combo deal and although it wasn't my first choice I am very happy with it. There is lots of cable management holes, the case feels very sturdy and well built, I love the modular design for the hard drive bays, the fans make very little noise just a very tolerable low hum, and it looks good.

Cons: I did have to remove the side panel fan to make room for a taller CPU heatsink and the bottom dust filters could definitely be better.
