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: Decent quality, plenty of room, good cooling capabilities (two 120mm fans included). Not a bad looking case either. Rosewill puts outs some pretty good cases at good prices.
Cons: I've used quite a few Rosewill cases and have liked most of them. This one isn't my favorite. It seems a little cheaper than some of the others, even at the same price point. I'm afraid I'd likely never purchase it for regular price. When it's on sale it's a pretty good buy though.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad case for a budget gaming system. Functional and semi-good looking.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great overall. I picked up 20 of these on a combo deal with a motherboard. No DOA's and no failures with any of them. Easily run at advertised speeds.
Cons: I encountered some compatibility problems with a couple older LGA 775 motherboards. I didn't dock an egg however since I believe it's because the boards only supported 1066 memory at best, or possibly did not support 8GB DIMMS.
Other Thoughts: Love Crucial memory and SSD's. They've treated me well. I've only had one RMA ever, and they were very good and speedy about the replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Vortex ATX-402WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Pretty decent for the price. Looks good, plenty of room, ok material quality for the price point. Everything works, nothing broken - some have reported buttons or USB's not working but of the four cases I purchased, everything is A-OK. Side window is a plus as well. And it has decent cooling (top, rear and 2X front 120mm fan options - only rear is actually included)
Cons: Cheaper materials but that's to be expected at this price. Raidmax can be hit or miss sometimes when it comes to cases. This isn't anywhere near the worst case I've gotten from them :) But it certainly isn't the best.
Cooling is somewhat mediocre. No side fan option. Somewhat fragile. Paint scratched easily.
Other Thoughts: To put it in perspective, I'd purchase more of these at this price ($35 w/free shipping). I wouldn't use it for a high end build since I'd expect a little better build quality, cooling and features for high end. But for entry level to mid range, it does just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
