Still going strong 1 year later

James P., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Having had this case now for over a year I am very happy with it and plan to use it for many years to come (as long as it holds out or the ATX form factor is still relevant). This case is more than large enough to accomadate my needs and it looks very good doing it. I would recommend this to anyone in the market for a mid tower case as it is by far the best at this price point and honestly is one of the top 5 mid tower cases I have had any experience with.
  • Pros: 1 year of solid use and not a fault to be found, even made a move across half the US packed up and riding in the back of a U-Haul without any issues.
  • Cons: With most of the case being an open air mesh, dust is a bit of a pain and compressed air will be need to be kept around to a greater degree than other cases.

Nice case

Richard A., Newegg
10 October 2012
  • Pros: Nice design, good airflow, lots of modular space inside. Good buy for the price.
  • Cons: Docked an egg because many of the structural screws were cross threaded upon receipt and I was not able to rearrange the cages without some serious elbow grease and several gin and tonics.

  • Summary: HDD's need to install backward, when you take the back panel off, THAT is where you plug in the wires to them. I have them facing the wrong side panel for the first few hours until I discovered with the cable management you were suppose to install "backwards"
  • Pros: Fantastic cable management
  • Cons: Why do I have to list a con? THERE IS NONE.

Awesome Case

John G., Newegg
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Great buy! Love the case! The USB 3.0 on the top of the case are handy, along with the audio connections. Very sturdy case also. Pay attention to your cable management. I had to cut the factory zip ties that held the front panel wires in order to find a better placement when I had finished installing the hdd, psu...ect. Also I saw a review saying the CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 did not fit. Wrong, it fits fine.
  • Pros: This case rocks! Plently of space, can take large video cards with room to spare, without having to remove the HDD cage. Currently have a GTX 670 installed with no issues. Airflow is great. Also, not knocking an egg for this, but the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO WILL NOT FIT! The size specs on the case make it seem like it should fit, but I failed to take into account the side panel fan! The fan hits the cooler just short of being able to close the panel. A smaller low...
  • Cons: No cons, as mentioned before, I'll paste this here also for people who might be concerned;

This Case is AMAZING!!

John H., Newegg

  • Summary: This case features a sturdy mesh frame on the top and bottom making it truly one of the best cases for conducting airflow but also the best dustcatcher. Rosewill thought of that though and along all the mesh there is another layer that's thinner so it will catch whatever's trying to get in (and it's removable so you can clean it!). Other owners didn't like the feel of the mesh panels but I find them to be tough and I have no worries when I move it or carry it.
  • Pros: It has everything any of the high-end cases have without the scary price-tag. I originally was interested in the case not just for the side-panel and top HDD Dock but the great airflow it offered which can't be seen in many of the other popular cases. This case comes with five fans pre-installed (three with blue LED's, which add an eye-catching aesthetic to my build) already installed in the correct orientation for the best airflow through your system. Being the cauti...
  • Cons: The only complaint I have about this case is that the wires coming from the top-panel ports come a bit too low and make it difficult to install a top 5.25" CD drive in (but not impossible).

Amazing Case

Anonymous, Newegg
24 May 2012
  • Summary: It was between this and the Thermaltake V9 case. I have used the Thermaltake in a few other builds before. It is a great case don't get me wrong. I almost went with it, except for the internal hard drive are difficult to move in and out. The Rosewill case makes it VERY easy to move drives in and out. Some engineer with OCD designed this case and it shows. There is attention down the smallest of details on this one. You won't be sorry if you go with this case.
  • Pros: Great case. Lots of room in the back for cable management. Tons of fans. I am not using them all. I personally am not a fan of neon lights. I am going to be replacing the fans with none neon ones. But they are very quiet despite how many their are. They are molex adapters so beware. I have mine tucked behind the motherboard tray out of sight. Despite having a lot of cables to run I was able to get this case to look real clean and very nice.
  • Cons: I'm very picky but I can only find one thing to complain about. I don't like lights on my case fans. Other than that. Everything is amazing about this case.

Great case

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The overall case quality is pretty good. Rolled edges, black paint everywhere, pretty sturdy after you get everything in there. Nothing you can swing a hammer at or anything like that. As I said before, the docking system worries me, so I bought a 5.25 front loading docking bay for hotswap. I do alot of hotswapping and that's why I went with this case, that and for the awesome cooling system it's capable of having.
  • Pros: Great case overall. Very spacious, great airflow. I, of course installed all the fans this thing can handle. I'm not really ever worried too much about fan noise, because most of the time I've got the tv volume up so high you can't hear anything else anyways. But this case is extremely quiet, with the stock fans that is. After I installed all my thermaltake replacement fans it is a little on the loud side. Like the docking system on top, but don't really trust putting...
  • Cons: BE WARNED...The video that is posted on this page is out of date. That is the version 1.0. This one comes with 4 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0. And the USB 3s are connected only with a 20 pin MB connector, not the though-plug that is shown in the video.

  • Summary: I bought this case about a month ago, after a couple more upgrades that required me to remove my motherboard I noticed something alarming. The screws provided with this case are ribbed lock screws. These will ruin your MB if you remove it more than once or twice. The top layer on my MB is already compromised from this. The solution is to switch to a smooth headed screw, that wont eat away your MB.
  • Pros: Update
  • Cons: Beware of the screws holding down your MB

  • Conclusion: There’s no denying that the Blackhawk takes a lot of its styling cues from another popular case and I’m sure those who are serious about hardware will know which one.
