The Rosewill Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case – THOR

with No Comments

Hmm, this gaming computer case brings scenes of a handsome God with a massive hammer to mind. It’s the heaviest of our best gaming computer cases and possible the sexiest. With a LED light functionality in the fan (which can be switched on or off) and a can-do attitude, it sails to the top of the heap. Sure, it’s a Full Tower, not a Mid Tower like the others, and that’s reflected in the price, but it’s true quality. Let’s take a look at the features, pros and cons of this beaut, and get an even picture.

ThoR v3 said this: “This case.. simply stunning for the price. The air flow is so amazing… im running dual 7970s in here and my ambient temp is still only 80F. the only extra fans i purchased are 3 140mm red LED MZXTs. My core never pushes over 105F with the H100 i have on it. The cable management is PERFECT for my needs… its got more hard drive bays than i can ever use. also of note is the fact that they support the 2.5 drives, SSD and all. This case is perfect. period. :D”
