Rosewill BLACKHAWK-ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Computer Case, support up to HPTX, come with Eight Fans,Top HDD docking - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Obviously it's huge, making cable management easy.

Quiet, yes for a case with 8 large fans it is surprisingly quiet

Inexpensive.. For a HPTX case $200 is cheap

Includes 2 4/8 pin CPU Extensions.

Cons: It is not the best quality you'd expect for $200

Not a lot of back side space, but the shear largeness helps out a ton.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to house my SR-2. Had the build, less sr-2, in a Corsair 650D prior.
The build quality is not the sameas the 650D, with the small things bring it down.
Surprisingly the red fans do NOT light up my room very much, which was my worry.

Glad I went ffor Air volume over the light switch, Aka Enermax.

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Black Steel / Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/Side Panel Window
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very nice case. All panels are nice and stiff and not floppy.
The front panel cables are incedibly long and had no issue reaching ang of the spots on my x58a-udr3. Even the front header audio from the bottom and back up.
My Antec 900 couldn't properly get to the panel button positions.

Modular hard drive caddys allowing increased air flow.

I have a Silverstone da700 and it easily fits with plenty of room

Cons: Not many, and none that are a deal breaker.
Front header cables are all individual. I did a loose braid of them to gather them all together.

The lack on internal usb 3 does suck, as the cables are now just tucked up on top of the DVD drive.

Oh and it is finger printy...

My biggest complaint is it didnt magically swap parts, resulting in a 6000pt loss in F@H today

Other Thoughts: Due to the known "whine" I had to use a Noctua 1100rpm cable from my nh-u12. Slowing down the front fan. As a result my gpu temps are 5C warmer than my Antec 900. I have sli 260's in the 16x spots, so hoping the Corsair fix will get my speed back.

Thats right now the 1 lost egg... If the fix gives full cooling then its a 5.
