Rosewill Shows Off Full-ATX Cases at Computex

Two new ATX towers topped Rosewill's Computex presentation, which also included a bevy of product upgrades and peripherals. The B-2 Spirit leads the line.

Scaling to true full-tower heights, the B-2 Spirit includes 10 slots and enough internal width for 400 mm long cards and HPTX motherboards. There's enough space above the motherboard for a 3 x 120 mm (so-called 360 mm) radiator, a row of grommets near the top of the rear panel for external liquid cooling, and 13 dual-format (2.5"/3.5") drive trays.

The lower front panel is hinged for quick access to dust-filtered intake fans, and that door is lined with acoustic foam to reduce noise. Behind the drive cage more fan mounts allow a second internal liquid cooling radiator at 2 x 140 mm spacing.

Other features include a pop up cover for the triple-fan top-panel radiator mount, and a pop-up port sections with four USB ports (two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0).

A full-length slide-out dust cover protects the power supply and bottom-panel fan mounts, which are covered with drive cages in the shipped configuration.

Rosewill's less elaborate launch products include the Star Predator and Wolf Stone. The firm states that the overspray finish of the final product will match the less saturated look of the top panel on the displayed product.

The Blackhawk S receives a new top-panel section with built-in flash media interface and fan controller, comparing favorably to the model we recently tested. We can only hope the side-panels are easier to work with.

Rosewill's aluminum Legacy series looks even better in its limited-edition color schemes, though the hardware remains unchanged.

    Not necessarily. Their Capstone series PSUs are made by SuperFlower. Seven-year warranty. Top-notch stuff.

    I can attest to what dstarr3 said. Ive got a 650W Capstone powering an i5 4670k and R9 280X, and not only does it work perfectly, but its whisper quiet and even when gaming i feel no heat from it.

    Let's hope their aluminum cases have rounded edges. I bought the Legacy V4-S and those edges are sharp. Not just the inside edges, but the outer ones too. I cut my hands a few times. I didn't even have to run my flesh against the metal. Just press it in and it cuts like a hot knife through butter - OUch! All in all it is a nice case though.

    I think I busted blood vessels in both my eyes while straining to see those dark arse pictures!

    Guys, let's donate some money to Tom's to help them purchase a quality camera. Just $5 US dollars would be a nice contribution to this worthy cause. With everyone's help, we can put a stop to the eye strain and the risk of busting blood vessels while viewing pictures on this site. :P

    As for these cases, none of them appear to have enough frontal venting for good air intake.

    Full length dust cover? Nice. Wait... It still slides out from the back of the PC? Damn... Seriously. All PSU/bottom-fan filters need to be accessible from the front of the case. I know I'm not alone when I say that I absolutely hate having to disconnect everything and move my entire just to clean the dust filter.

    Rosewill is Newegg's brand, so its quality is tied directly to that of its suppliers. That means you really need to look around at what reviewers are saying before jumping in. The SuperFlower-supplied Capstone versus the who-knows-whom supplied Blackhawk Ultra is a perfect dichotomy of its range.

    Sorry, I got the good camera then edited the photos on a different (brighter) monitor. They looked sufficiently bright on the notebook :) Blame the artist not the brush.

    Fix the gamma, brightness, and contrast on your monitor. They look totally fine on my screen.
