Overall excellent case and worth the money. 06/26/2014
This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported
The case is more then worth the money, great ventilation due to the grated front panel and the vented side panel as well as the vented expansion slots. The fans that come with it are pretty good although the rear fan made small amounts of noise at max speed, but not really a con.
One other thing I loved and applaud is the fact the expansion slot covers are replaceable. The last two cases I had (one being a Rosewill) had punch out slot covers that couldn't be replaced so I had to buy covers myself. Its convenient to have replaceable ones as long as I don't lose them.
A couple gripes about the case that are more personal then anything. To install the motherboard you may want to remove the top fan as it is extremely close the the mounting location and did obstruct me when installing mine. I also wish it had USB 3.0 on the front but that was taken care of by the eSata port.
I did replace the rear fan, while the noise wasn't terrible and could be easily ignored, I had better fans from an old build on hand. The top and front fans are barely noticeable so I didn't bother to replace them. I also liked that fact you can mount 2 120 mm fans on the side panel or possibly a liquid cooling radiator (though the rear vent also has a single 120 mm radiator configuration.
