Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Keeps my i5-4670k cool, which was my top priority for purchasing.
-Bottom-mounted PSU.
-Decent amount of workspace when installing.
-Looks really nice, IMO.

Cons: Was missing a standoff hole for my mobo. Someone else noted this too in a prior review; they drilled the hole themselves, I opted to leave it as is. If you do that just be careful when you're plugging things in to the board in that area so you don't damage it.

Other Thoughts: My old case, a Rosewill R519-BK, was a decent case for my budget-gaming, non-overclocked clarkdale i3 build. However, the step up to the notoriously toasty Haswell platform with a 4670k (OC'd to 4.4GHz) had my temps at around 35-40C idle and up to 90C during stress testing. I transferred everything into this case, added one 120mm side fan, and my temps at idle can actually get into the 20's! 29-31C at idle, stress testing it maxes out at around 75C. This is a tremendous improvement and I wasn't expecting that much difference just from a case.
