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
Pros: Lots of Space (I have a power color R9 280 in it (a very long GPU))
3 Built in fans
Plenty of expansion potential
Lots of extra hardware
Simple installation of components
Cons: No front USB 3.0 slots.
Other Thoughts: This case is hands down a lot better than the last case I had. It is amazing how much difference a case can make.
A lot of people are complaining about the materials it is made out of. I have no qualms with the material at all. Sure, it may be a bit more plastic than my last case, but it is still very durable. My favorite thing about it is that the PCI expansion slots are not some tool free quick install junk. There are actual screws I can secure my GPU down with.
All in all I think it was 45 dollars well spent, and I would buy it again if I were doing another build.
Pros: Easy Over Clocking
Will be able to use it for Piledirver in the future
Plenty of Slots
Cons: At least one bad memory slot. Windows started crashing a lot. So I ran Mem test 86+. Through my troubleshooting I discovered a bad memory slot.
Other Thoughts: I am not upset with the motherboard as much as I am Newegg. It will have to be a great deal before I buy from newegg again. In my build two parts turned out to be bad. First I got a bad HD. Luckily that was obvious from the start and I was able to RMA right away. It took longer to discover the Memory Slot problem. Now if I wanted to RMA it I would have to take everything apart and do it all over again. I'm frustrated that I received two major parts from Newegg that turned out to be defective.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of bays.
The two fans keep my PC nice and cool.
The LED lighting looks nice.
Cons: The screw less mechanism just doesn't work for video cards. My video card was too big to fit under it. I think it works good for the drives just not for anything PCI related.
Other Thoughts: I like the door on the front, but they should have put the power button on the outside of it. It is annoying having to open it up every time to power the computer on. Also, when you do open it up, it looks pretty plain and generic.READ FULL REVIEW
