Rosewill Brings Cases and PSUs Galore to Computex

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 20 comments

Computex Taipei has long since closed its doors but we're still working through the backlog of images and information from the editorial team that was deployed in Taiwan. Rosewill was at the show to display several cases as well as a deluge of PSUs.

First up is the Rosewill Throne, which is a full tower case with a slot system up top for controlling air flow and Plexiglass windows on the side and 10 2.5-inch slots and three 5.25-inch slots. Available in August, the Throne is going to cost $179 when it hits U.S. shelves.

       

Next up is the Rosewill Armor Evolution, a midtower case with seven 2.5-inch slots and three 5.25-inch slots. There's also an opening in the left-side panel for an additional fan. The Armor Evolution will be available in August/September and will cost $119.

   

Finally, Rosewill brought an abundance of PSUs to Computex, including the 500 watt Silent Night passive solution, the 450, 550, 650 and 750 watt Fortress series, and the 500, 600, 700 and 1000 watt Tachyon series. Rosewill couldn't give us much in the way of information on these, but there was also a 1600 watt called Hercules with 13 connectors.

    since these are normal certificated psus, i'm assuming these will be moderately low in price(and will probably combo well with rosewill cases for a 20-25$ combo) which will probably replace the green series for rosewill's normal certified psu line.

    1600 watt PSU? "Great Scott!"

    That'll be perfect for my next $6k build...if I win the Mega Millions and am able to spend money foolishly.

    Rosewill is owned by Newegg, right?

    For some reason I can't see myself every buying a "Rosewill" product because the name sounds extremely cheap. The chinese crappy type cheap.

    Rosewill turns out to be a store brand for Newegg, basically a rebranding operation. They don't actually design or manufacture their own products, they just buy them in bulk and slap their logo on.

    Sadly, seeing those cases made me realize how little PC cases have evolved. Those cases look just like the one I used to build my first computer back in 2002. In front of me, I've got a CM Sniper case for my newest rig, and this looks really similar to them too. LOL

    Rosewill has some pretty decent products (for the price) but you have to watch what you get because they do sell some extremely cheap crap.

    I own a case of theirs and it has filled its purpose just fine.

    "Rosewill" sounds like a product aimed at my little sister Maggy.
    Pink case with an engraved kitty cat wearing a cute bow :-)

    I want a case called something macho; like the "Eastwood" maybe. You hear me, punk ? :-)

    I countered the -1 someone gave you. I agree that cases haven't seen much evolution over the year. At least not aesthetically. My first Raidmax case looked just like the first case pictured here. New features have definitely popped up and I am glad that PSUs are no longer top mounted.

    The cases look very flashy. I personally don't like it as much as a clean, sleek case but there's a market for almost any case type.

    Do these cases just have 2.5" slots? You guys mentioned that the first computer has 10 2.5" slots. I dont think anyone has the money for that many SSD's or whatever. Did you mean 3.5"?

    The name Rosewill used to terrify me. Dastardly cheap products. Now I'm beginning to have faith.

    I was wondering about the 2.5" slots myself. One or two would be nice, but no 3.5" slots?? I'm confused Tom's.

    I just looked at the PSU picture and the first thing that comes to mind is Oh Dear God, that is huge.

    For the Rosewill Throne, why is the PSU positioned on the bottom of the case? The PSU fan will suck in all the dust and dirt in the room. Eventually, the PSU, which can be very expensive, will be filled with pet hair, dust and all the other debris in the room.

    Why is it so hard to find an extended-ATX size case with a front door? This is the case I am currently using:
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001391TYS

    Here is what I am looking for.
    1. Case for extended-ATX size motherboard
    2. 5 - 5.25" open bays
    3. At least 3 internal 3.5" hard drive bays
    4. Front connectors: 2 - USB 2.0, 1 - USB 3.0, 1 - SATA, headphones, mic
    5. Front door for all 5.25" open bays
    6. 2 - 80mm fans in lower front and room for filter
    7. Closed side door, no fan or openings at all
    8. PSU in standard position on top in back
    9. 120 mm rear fan
    10. Black or beige

    Basically, I am looking for what I already have only larger and with modernized front connectors. So far I have found nothing with the above specs.
