Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

3 out of 5 eggs Yes and no.... 08/24/2016

This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks nice. Included fans pretty quiet. Front panel cables plenty long enough for any motherboard. Comes with mounting hardware.

Cons: No cable management.
To install motherboard you have to install 3.5" hard drives first, then remove back fan and even then motherboard is hard to tilt fit in
If your ram is taller than normal the 3.5" hard drives will not fit.
Metal is beer can thin so be careful when tightening screws or standoffs as they strip out very easily.
If you need to remove a hard drive (like I did) you either have to remove the motherboard or take your cpu cooler off.
Blue power LED is bright enough to be a flashlight so no fun if its in a bedroom or TV/media room.

Other Thoughts: For the price I guess its fine. In the end it does look nice. Royal pain to remove/install 3.5" hard drives.

Pros: Good price and is MacOSX compatible with no problems.

Cons: Short, wimpy antenna's are pretty worthless. I put higher gain antenna's on coax extender cables and made a HUGE improvement.

Pros: Was on sale for $29.99 so took a chance and bought 2. One had 21000 hours and the other 23000. No problems as yet. Using them in a Zylex NAS326.

Cons: They run pretty hot when being accessed for long periods of time around 52C. When at idle or low access they settle around 41-42c.

Other Thoughts: Should have bough a third as a spare when they were still $29.99
