5 out of 5 eggsGood and solid cheap case, good airflow, lots of feature

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: - 3 FANS / 3 ventilateur
- Airflow is very good / La circulation d'air est bonne
- Feels solid / Ca l'air solide
- Cable management is not bad / La gestion des cables est pas mauvaise

Cons: - Fans are meh... Front one is not even turning on startup, screw are prying the case and the fan hit the corner. Has to loosen the screw to avoid weird sound. Rear FAN is making noise on higher RPM... Well don't buy this case for the FANS lol. / Les fans sont bof.. Celle du devant ne tourne meme pas au démarrage, les visses font plier le plastique et les palmes accroche le bord. J'ai du les mettre plus lousse pour éviter un drôle de bruit. La FAN arrière fais un bruit quand elle tourne plus rapidement. N'acheter pas ce case pour les ventilateurs.

EDIT : ROSEWILL SEND MY 2 NEW FANS FOR FREE. THEY HAVE AN AMAZING SUPPORT AND IM UPGRADING MY REVIEW TO 5 STARS !

Other Thoughts: I'll buy 2 news fans, i already bougth 2 new for the side, so i just added 20$ to that price. Honestly it's not a bad case but rosewill should upgrade with better FANS

EDIT : Thanks rosewill for sending 2 new fans

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little case but not perfect

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: Fits components easily. Drives mount quickly. Nothing that hasn't already been said by hundreds of others.

Cons: The front audio/mic ports are somewhat fragile to repeated inserting and removing... I'd estimate after about 100-200 they'll start to wear out and no longer work. The front fan is the first to go which is first evident by bearing noise. If you don't use these two components you should be fine. The front USB ports have withstood my abuse just fine.

Other Thoughts: Nice, small case. Full tower cases are overrated and just take up a lot of space without accomplishing much in many cases.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case for the money

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: I love the fact that it came with three fans and all help to keep dust from building up inside.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I really don't see what everyone is complaining about concerning this case. I haven't had any major issues with it, especially any bending. what are people doing with these cases exactly? It's not hard to keep them from dropping and what not; just sayin.... Anyway, I'm satisfied with mine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for the money.

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: I purchased this to upgrade my son's PC from an old generic beige stamped steel case. He loves the look of the LED fan in the front. The case is reasonably lightweight and we are pretty happy with it over all. While there is room for cables, this case really benefits from at least a semi-modular PSU.

Cons: While our build went fine, the case cold benefit from just a bit more space:
- Using an EVGA GTX 760 video card was a pretty tight fit. The case could benefit from being maybe 1/2 to 1" deeper to allow for more space for the video card.
- I would have preferred one less 5 1/4" drive bays to allow for more internal 3 1/2" or 2 1/2" drive bays.
- The side panel is very easily bent, it could benefit from some sort of reinforcement lengthwise from front to back across the middle of the panel.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a good buy. My son loves his new case, and it was a fun build.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Gaming or Casual 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: Mostly tool-free assembly, 3 included fans (that work just fine), tons of open space and simple cable management. Plenty of room to grow or customize over time. Looks nice, easy to clean and includes a PSU filter on the bottom.

Cons: Nothing. Seriously, it's big enough to throw another GTX 970 FTW in if I wanted. USB 3.0 port-version wasn't available at the time, but I have had no need for that...

Other Thoughts: I built my rig for gaming and this case allows for just such things. Mostly hands-free assembly as I already mentioned... you will need a tool to secure your mother-board, PSU, etc, but that's to be expected... I love this thing.
