Rosewill Stealth - ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case - Top HDD Dock and Fan Controller Included, Supports Up to 5 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fairly nice looking case. Plenty of fan mounts. Rubber grommets and extra room behind back panel facilitate good cable management. Removable front and top mesh filter panels. Tool-less drive mounts. Plexiglass side panel window.

Cons: Cheaply built and easy to break. Does NOT provide sufficient room for 240mm liquid cooling solutions. Very cheap, chintzy HDD dock and fan controller switches. Plastic head thumb screws throughout. Thoughtful design in some areas, but poor execution throughout. Flimsiest case I have ever seen in the $80+ price range.

Other Thoughts: This is a follow-up to my previous review:
OK, so I read Rosewill’s pretty little pre-canned reply, which I now realize was strictly to create a good PR appearance. The first time I called, the rep said he would have someone from warranty call me back within 2 hours. The 2 hours came and went, but eventually they did call me back. After explaining the entire story to the rep, he very lethargically stated that he couldn’t do anything for me, and asked if there was anything else I needed help with. I briefly reiterated the issues I had, and his response was that the product had been replaced (by Newegg) once, and the replacement arrived in a presumed unbroken condition. The fact that it broke the first time I attempted to remove the top panel, was of no concern to him and/or responsibility of Rosewill. The fact that the product description on the website was misleading and ambiguous with regard to the statement “Supports 2 x 240mm Liquid Cooling Systems” was also no concern to him and/or responsibility of Rosewill. He said that installing a radiator was considered “modifying” the product (even though the description mentions the support for liquid cooling solutions multiple times) and Rosewill’s warranty does not cover or guarantee any modifications. The rep continued to be very short, apathetic, and non-conversational, and made another attempt to end the conversation. Rather than address any concerns I still had, the rep just robotically repeated “is there anything else I can help you with”, and immediately hung up once I finally threw in the towel and said “no”. I called Newegg to inform them of my experience. Although it wasn’t directly their fault, they once again came through like champions and offered me an acceptable solution. Newegg - 1… Rosewill - 0. I have been a faithful Rosewill customer in the past, but this was a rude awakening for me. After purchasing as many of their products as I have, only to be kicked in the teeth during a warranty inquiry, was a hard lesson to learn... but I won’t let it happen again!

Plastic head thumb screws throughout. Thoughtful design in some areas, but poor execution throughout. Flimsiest case I have ever seen in the $80+ price range.

Other Thoughts: I have bought many Rosewill cases, and for all intents and purposes, have been pleased with all of them except this one. The first one arrived with no physical damage whatsoever to the box, but the top panel was significantly damaged in several places. Given the pristine condition of the box, I suspect it was already damaged before it was shipped to me. Kudos to Newegg though; they are customer service champions and replaced it immediately with no cost to me. The second one arrived without damage, but still proved to be a grave disappointment. The top panel broke in two places while I gently tried to remove it. The chintzy plastic fan control sliders were noticeably mismanufactured. Also, there is NOT room for 240mm liquid cooling systems in the top or front of the case. I purchased a Black Ice Nemesis 240GTS (29.6mm low-profile) radiator, and without significant modifications to the case, cannot get it to fit in front or on top of this case. I can kind of get it to fit in the front (just barely though) if I don’t attach any fans to it (what good is it without fans?) and manually drill holes for the tubing. Worse yet, I could not get it to fit under any circumstances in the top of the case. I did figure out that my radiator will fit (with fans attached) behind the lower drive cages, but will block a large portion of the right side of the motherboard (where most of the connections need to be made), and will also severely limit the length of video card I can use. I do not recommend this for a liquid-cooled build, and if the manufacturer actually believes it will accommodate 240mm liquid-cooling “systems” in multiple places, I’d like to know how they did it.

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A2133C11B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Completely Plug & Play. Worked at advertised speed and timings right out of the box. Set bios to XMP Profile 1 and they fired right up. Very nice, unique, professional looking modules. Modules are thinner than most others I’ve used, providing ample room for air flow between them. And, like almost everything else Corsair makes, excellent quality. Nothing flimsy, cheesy, or unprofessional at all with these.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: If you’re looking for high-quality RAM and prefer something that doesn’t look like military weapons, sports car grills, fictional creatures, or a Vegas casino sign, these are a great choice.
