Pros: Light weight.
Long opening for a video card, can easily hold any card out there today.
120mm fan opening on the side.
Cons: Cable management on the outside (under the motherboard) panel is non existent.
Not really enough airflow into the box.
Other Thoughts: For the price, this is a very good case. I'm using it for my daughters (2 of them) and working to save money on the case, so I can be a little less frivolous on the Video card. This is a good choice for that. Air flow is good, not spectacular. I have a good 120 mm fan on the side panel that draws air out from the GPU. I'm on the fence with the above power supply, since it does keep all air flowing in one direction (from bottom to top, as hot air should flow) but.. It's nice to be able to use the side panel opening for inbound airflow. With the power supply on top, and a fan on top, you need internal air flow from the outside to come from lower. Since there is only one place for air intake in the front, I might need to use the side panel for inbound air... which means pushing warm air from the GPU back to the motherboard. 3rd world problems, I know...
The bottom line here is if you're looking for a budget case (which will fit a Rosewill power supply-- another good buy I feel) then this is a good pick up. I chose it for 2 major reasons.
1. It's size/ footprint. I wanted a little smaller because I knew I wasn't going to toss in a huge GPU, and using a I3 6100 isn't going to push a lot of power/ heat.
2. 3 USB and also headphone jacks on the front panel, plus very simple.
I would have given this 5 stars, except there needs to be one more opening or a better opening in the front for airflow into the case. While I'm not overly concerned with this build that it's going to be an issue, you may want to look at that when using this case for a build.
Overall, I am happy with this case. Sturdy enough and light enough. Plenty of GPU space and fit my micro ATX board without an issue. Definitely recommended and will have no issues buying a Rosewill product in the future.
I bought this card in November of 2014 and it's still playing everything at high settings without a hitch. In todays market, you could probably do better for the money, but, not much. It's still an economic choice for the power you get from it.
Cons: It doesn't wash my car.
Other Thoughts: This is combined with a I5 4690, an ASRock motherboard, SSD and 2400 memory is a very cost effective fast gaming machine. It still handles everything I put at it. The only bad part... I don't have a reason to upgrade :)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good marks on 3d Mark. Good scalability. Great value for the money. Runs most games very smoothly (depending on your RAM). No trouble installing/ setting the drivers. All in all, this is a great value. it's not the top card, but, it's very nice and for 100 bucks you cannot beat it.
Cons: it is LOUD. The fan runs at one speed "VERY FAST" which just happens to mirror "very loud". I got this for my wife's machine, and it's inside her desk (well insulated) so it really doesn't have much of an impact apart from the HEAT that blows from behind her desk. Otherwise, no cons.
Other Thoughts: For the price, this is almost too good to be true. If you're looking for a card for a 2ndary box, your kids or your wife (who doesn't play a lot) this is ideal. It's not a bad choice for the primary box if you're in a pinch. it'll do whatever you need it to.READ FULL REVIEW
