2 out of 5 eggsFairly disappointing

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: Pretty nice design, easy to assemble. Seems like a lot of nice airflow, and fan and vent placement is good.

Cons: 1 - It's higher than listed in the specs. 17.08" does not include the feet, which are really hard to remove (I couldn't figure out how to do it, so I placed the computer in a different location than I had planned).
2 - The plastic that holds the front panel on is very flimsy. Mine broke when I applied just a little bit of pressure in the wrong direction.
3 - One of the fans is pretty noisy, at least sometimes.

Other Thoughts: My video card is 10.1" long, and while it fits just fine, it protrudes into the area where some drive cables might need to go. I ended up moving my drives to different bays. Just a heads up.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat looking case but fan was messed up.

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: Its an amazing looking case with a simple design.

Cons: I transferred for a old case to a new case. which this is the one I decided to go with. I put my entire computer together only to find out that the LED fan in the front of the case is making a extremely loud noise. At first i thought it was something i did but it was the LED lights hitting the fan blades. So i had to take a bunch of stuff back out of my computer just to get to the fan and finally fixed the problem myself. It was just a lot of unnecessary work that could of been avoided.

5 out of 5 eggsTwo years in, and I'm still loving it.

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: Very big with room for all the big bulky loveliness, while still having the connections for your smaller stuff.

The included LED fan is nicely coloured; even without my added goodies, the included fans made this case cool to the touch, even in summer. I actually had to reposition it because it was making me cold when it faced me.

The huge girth of 3.5" bays is amazing for my multimedia-obsessed family. Three 5.5" bays also helps since we can keep and watch all our different region DVDs without running out of chances to change the region of the player.

With the extra add-ins, this is a true powerhouse case for the price, and I'd buy another one.

Cons: The mesh protects dust from getting inside, but it's hard to remove the mesh and the undermesh to clean them without cutting yourself.

Other Thoughts: Might not be an issue, since I just added a lot of new stuff recently and my power supply might need updating, but after my last clean and fix-up, the front fan has stopped running. the lights turn on, but it doesn't spin. I'll try switching out the PSU, but even so...it's lasted 2 years by now, so good run.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

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: Roomy for a mid-tower. Air flow seems decent with the three provided fans.

First case upgrade for me in years and years so this is my first use of 3.5 bays that are oriented east-west which I am liking a lot, especially with regard to cable management (I have 4 HDDs in there) and first use of bottom-mounted PSU which I also like.

Cons: Front panel buttons and ports do not feel robust (particularly the USB 2.0 ports) and will likely be the case's first point of failure - treat them gently. Looses an egg for this.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than its price suggests

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: Fit a full-size ATX board (ASUS Crosshair III Formula) and related goodies along with a Samsung HDD, ASUS CD/DVD burner, and one extra 120mm fan on the side panel, everything works quietly. Arrived in perfect condition, had all the necessary hardware, and everything fit together without drama or discomfort. Cable management is good but could become troublesome if you stuff this box full. This system won't be hauled around so I don't need heavier steel components. Knew what I wanted and this one fit the bill for a full size ATX machine that will run Linux using garage sale sourced components that all worked!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is my third build using Rosewill cases and each were 5 star builds.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat very sturdy case

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: very solid side panels they aren't like those cheap panels you can make thunder sounds with hard to put a dent in this thing and hard to scratch paint off.

Cons: none what so ever

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.

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: Pros: Inexpensive, good cable management, lots of bays.

Cons: Poor construction. Very poor.
My front I/O panel didn't just stop working after about 2 months, but the USB plugs were loose after 2 weeks, and after 3 weeks, they had to be pulled out and bent so they didn't fall into the case every time I plugged in a thumb drive.

The side doors are bad as well. Thumb screws are nice, but the alignment of the door never seemed to match quite right, and it bent quite easily which made it even harder to get on/off.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, cheap, but not great

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: It looks good, it has good features, and it is built quite solidly and fits everything well.

Cons: Fans are somewhat noisy and too bright, the front plastic panel contrasts with the metal case more than the pictures let on. No USB 3 ports.

Other Thoughts: No real complaints, but I would have gone with a much simpler case for the same price. The lighted fans are too bright for any room, and the included case fans are somewhat noisy, but not terrible. But it works wonderfully.
