Pros: Not expensive
Enough room in back panel for basic wire management
Looks quite nice in and out
IO ports on top (so they won't get broken)
All front IO cables fit securely onto the motherboard (I've had experience where cables did not fit securely and that is really bad)
Cons: Standoffs are threaded into thin case material instead of into nuts which makes them quite flimsy and easy to crossthread
Front IO cables are colorful and tacky (instead of black)
Front fan cable is silvery (instead of black)
LED cables for power and HDD are not labeled for orientation (+/-) (though because the wires are colorful and tacky and I know what the colors mean it is ok for me)
Drive bays are not toolless
Orientation and/or location of only 2.5" drive mount is bad for power hookup.
Front side fan blows on 3.5" drive bays (mechanical HDDs run better when they are warm) instead of at the 2.5" SSD which can benefit from the cooling.
None of the case fans are PWM fans and all have the big MOLEX adapters hardwired in (which is a personal pet peeve of mine) the Front IO sound adapter still has the old AC97 adapter (which is also a personal pet peeve of mine but this one is like an appendix, NO ONE needs it anymore)
Other Thoughts: While this is a decent (but not great because of how the MB standoffs are mounted) case for professional system builders I would not recommend this for DIY build; Because I don't recommend it for DIY, I can also say that the water cooling holes and grommets are worthless.
As far as the 2.5" drive bay mount is concerned it is my biggest irritant with this case, it is in such a position that it spaces the 5.25 bays and the 3.5 bays too far from each other and thus requires in a modular setup a seperate SATA power cable to be installed where only one is needed. Also, Corsair, if you are listening, please get rid of the MOLEX on the fans. If you think it is a great idea then provide a single modular adapter for SATA power instead. Most of us professionals would like to see the death of the old MOLEX.
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, comes with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: The case is nice and big. It is easy to access all of the components, I didn't have to kink any SATA cables to install the drives which has been an issue on about 30% of the cases I've worked with. There is sufficient room behind the MB for cable routing which is rare.
Cons: The power button gets cockeyed and sticks. I have to lightly depress it so it doesn't get a chance to get cockeyed. Thankfully this was my own personal case and not one for a customer.READ FULL REVIEW

hasn't plugged up
Other Thoughts: Been using this vacuum for about 2 years now and I'm still impressed with it. We bought it for about $200 but it is now common to find it for 25% less than that. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone that wants an upright. I have used other way more expensive vacuums and this has beet them all especially considering the price. Never have tried a Dyson though and I hear great things about them after this vacuum I just can't see why someone would need to spend 2x to 3x for something that may or may not be marginally better.READ FULL REVIEW
