Rosewill Announces Cases, PSUs, Peripherals, PC Cooling

We paid a visit to Rosewill's booth at Computex and we noticed several new products including cases, PSUs, keyboards, mice and a new liquid cooler model.

CULLINAN

The Cullinan is a mid-ATX tower case featuring three tempered glass surfaces (side and front panels) and LED lighting. It supports up to E-ATX motherboards and it is equipped with a fan/LED controller. You can install a water cooling radiator either at its front, or on top (up to 360mm length). Given this case's features and specifications, the $110 MSRP looks pretty decent.

Raptor 22

The Raptor 22 features a slide-down front cover and it supports up to E-ATX motherboards. Triple radiators of 360mm length can be installed into this case at either the front or the top side. In addition, CPU coolers with increased height and very long graphics cards are both supported. Finally, the MSRP is set at $110.

We should also mention that the Raptor 22 has an easily detachable part on one of its side panels, which allows the effortless installation of HDDs and SSDs, without removing the whole side panel. This is a clever idea and we also liked the fact that this part of the side panel is secured in place with magnets, so it can be removed and installed again easily.

Himars

According to Rosewill the Himars case is ideal for the construction of a multi-HDD system, thanks to the easily accessible hot-swap drive bays. This mid-ATX case supports up to ATX-sized motherboards, along with 160mm max height CPU coolers, and up to 300mm length graphics cards. This is mostly a chassis for server systems where strong (and very long) graphics cards aren't necessary.

Nautilus

The Nautilus is another mid-ATX tower. It features a windowed side panel, LED fans and up to 240mm radiator support. This case can house ATX motherboards and graphics cards up to 360mm in length. Overall this is an affordable case for mainstream/mid-level systems.

SCM-01

The SCM-01 is a pretty compact case featuring a plain design. It addresses the budget-oriented users who don't need side window panels or other extras, like LED lighting. This chassis is for mainstream systems, equipped with up to ATX-sized motherboards. We don't have any information on its price, but we are pretty sure that it will be quite low.

Power Supplies

Rosewill showed us two Titanium PSUs during CES 2016 and at Computex 2016 we were able to see the Tokamak units in action. There was a Chroma load station installed at Rosewill's booth, which was used to load up one of the PSUs to show us one of its interesting features. At the PSU's rear side are several LED indicators, which will start to blink once the load on a rail exceeds 90% of its max rated capacity. According to Rosewill this is a quick way to check if your system manages to put a huge stress on the PSU. With such high capacities the most likely scenario is that you won't see those LED lights blinking, though.

Both Tokamak units are made by Enhance Electronics, according to Rosewill. Unfortunately, we didn't have access at the units' internals in order to confirm this.

The MSRP is very high and the competition is quite stiff at this price point, so the Tokamak units have to register high performance in order to be competitive. The 1.2 kW model offers 8 PCIe connectors while the 1.5 kW unit raises the bar even higher, with 12 PCIe connectors. You will have to spend a fortune on graphics cards and also have the proper chassis to install them in to utilize all available PCIe connectors.

The power specification tables of both Tokamak units follow.

The RK-9000V2 features RGB lighting, and all of its lighting effects can be set directly on the keyboard without the use of a software application, as is usually the case. We don't have any information on this keyboard's retail price but given the fact that it uses Cherry MX switches, we don't expect it to be lower than $100.

Rosewill also introduced two new affordable mice, equipped with the optical sensors most gamers prefer. The main specifications of both mice are listed below. As you will notice, their only difference is the color of the paint job.

Liquid CPU Coolers

Rosewill also introduced the Charybdis Liquid CPU cooler, which promises high performance. Just for the record, Charybdis was a sea monster which kept company to another sea monster, called Scylla. So sailors that attempted to avoid one monster would fall into the other one. This way both monsters were kept always busy. According to the Greek mythology Charybdis swallowed a huge amount of water three times per day, creating large whirlpools. So calling a liquid cooler Charybdis is interesting to say the least! [Editor's note: having a Greek writer comes in handy. Also, for those not into Greek mythology, the band The Police immortalized Scylla and Charybdis in "Wrapped Around Your Finger."]

The characteristics of the Charybdis RC120 are as follows:

  • Dimensions: 120mm x 168mm x 70mm
  • Closed top design
  • PWM speed control fan

The only different in the characteristics of the RC240 are the dimensions, which are 120mm x 288mm x 70mm.

    Yawn, more black rectangles. Sorry boring to me. I know they are an acquired taste, but I love the out of the box cases from the likes of inWin (I have the Tou and several others). The Thermaltake wall mount is cool. I dunno, with so much cash I spend on components, I hate having a case that doesn't showcase them properly (i.e. match those components' looks/$$). I know many don't care about case aesthetics, but it is almost more important to me than the components (almost!)

    The SCM-01 looks really nice! Hopefully it maintains the $30 price tag of their current cheap cases.

    Rosewill (in my opinion) is one of the most underrated brands. Their stuff is quality.

    Rosewill always has nice cases, and depending on their source the PSUs are nice too. The tempered glass and brush aluminum are always nice cases. Hopefully it comes at a Rosewill price.

    There's also "Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis" by Trivium, a much better band ;p

    At $300 for a power supply, they should have a wattage meter built in, i mean a Kila-watt meter is $20 and that comes with an LCD display and stuff, so why not put a USB output to the motherboard so we can see what the wattage is in real time on our computers. It would only take a few dollars worth of components and some windows software.
