This is a nice case for budget builds, but it's really cramped inside, to the extent that I had to remove one of its fans to install the motherboard. Front panel USB3 would also be a nice addition, but my motherboard doesn't have USB3 headers, so I wouldn't be able to take advantage of it.

Great case for the price easy to work with the only downside is the lack of cable management without zip ties or a modular power supply it looks like a spaghetti monster is living in your computer.

Hard! to cable manage in this case, but still looks pretty clean for a small cheap case.

okay for the price... small and nondescript; problem is the fans. one stopped working after about 9 months and the other makes a constant loud sound upon startup and needs to be manually stopped to prevent it. in addition, the front panel headphone jack no longer works, and the USB ports have power issues. also, cable management is difficult.

The Rosewill case is pretty great for $25. It was even cheaper than that last time I looked. Of course it was. Anyway, I modded the case a little (and made it non-returnable but it's cheapness permits experimentation) by cutting out/drilling some ventilation in the front panel with a Dremel tool and adding a screen mesh to the front fan. My only complaint with it is the pesky non-removable HD holders. You have to remove the motherboard if you want to access to the HD's. Either that or remove the CPU cooler (oh that's right, they're called "APU's" now ha ha ha !!!) which is way more trouble than it's worth. But what should I expect for $25? It's definitely not a "mini tower" as it has a lot of more space than one of those.

Looks better in person than it does in the pictures.

Pros:

  • No annoying bright lights
  • Looks decent.

Cons:

  • No room for cable management (had to stuff the drive bays with the cables)
  • Once the brackets are broken they can't be placed back

Overall nice case for its price.

It's cheap. It also has neither airflow nor cable management, and it has thin sides, but for $25, are you really going to complain? This is fine for budget builds, which is what it's intended for. If you can, I recommend taking the advice from other FBM builders. Stuff all the loose cables into the 5.25" drive bays and you'll have a better day. Did I mention the 2.5" drive mount at the bottom? Some advertisements don't mention it; it's good for adding an SSD.
