Rosewill Gaming Thor V2 ATX Full Tower Computer Case
6 March 2015
Excerpt: The functionality and features on this tower are terrific, and in some ways it could certainly be better than a lot of other cases out there. This case has 10 expansion slots, which is more than many other full towers on the market, along with a couple USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports on the front face.
Conclusion: No single innovation in the Rosewill Thor moves this megachassis into the must-buy category, but the sum of its parts and its attractive price make the case more than serviceable for value-conscious buyers.
Pros: Extremely solid build quality, Alienware-style top vents, Fan controllers built directly into chassis
Excerpt: We will be taking a look at the Rosewill THOR V2-W, the white edition of Rosewill’s THOR V2 full tower computer case. As you may know, Rosewill is a Newegg house brand and puts out many different computer related products.
Pros: Solidly Built Chassis, Fan Speed Controllers on Front I/O Panel, Optical Drive Bays (one converts to 3.5″), HDD/SSD Trays, Excellent Cable Management, Rounded Edges, Huge Space to work with inside the case, Plenty of ventilation, Not Very Loud at Full Fan Speed, Innovative Top Vents and Front Bay...
Cons: Accessories all mixed in one bag, Possible issue with loose connector pins
Conclusion: I'll make this clear: despite my quibbles with the case's build quality, Rosewill's Thor v2 made me a believer. The thermal and acoustic performance of this case just can't be understated: Rosewill has somehow managed to make $150 for an enclosure seem like a bargain.
Rosewill Thor V2 White Edition Full Tower Case Review

Summary: Final Thoughts
This case being from Rosewill I was not expecting to be amazed, but they did do many things right with this case, which I want to point out. First of all the case is huge, this means you can fit larger motherboards like E-ATX and XL-ATX in without any issues.
Pros: – 4 included fans (three 230mm, one 140mm), – USB 3.0, – Support for large motherboards (XLATX, EATX), – Support for long video cards, – Lot’s of room behind the motherboard tray, – Plenty of cable routing holes
Cons: – Rubber inserts on the routing holes easily fall off, – No CPU power extension cable included, – Front bezel cover filters had fallen off upon delivery
Conclusion: Overall, the Rosewill Thor V2 blew us away with everything it brought to our review table. First off, the ol’ switcharoo with the colors was very nice! The white on black looks great, and will help the Thor stand out from almost every case out there.
Excerpt: Rosewill is a Newegg brand, along with ABS Systems; and in a recent turn of events, has decided to enter the Enthusiast market with High End products like their Lightning & Capstone Series of PSUs made by Super Flower and their diverse Case Line-up from multiple OEMs.
Conclusion: This is Rosewill’s second version of the THOR series full tower gaming case. Improvements include a sturdier chassis and thumb screws for expansion cards. It also updates the front panel with four USB ports, instead of two: two USB 2 and two USB 3.
Pros: Huge internal space/easy to work on, Great cable management, Sturdy, Simple in design, Excellent air flow, Three 230mm fans and one 140mm fan installed, Innovative top vents, Two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 front ports, eSATA front panel, Fan controllers front panel, Removable top and front bezels, T...
Cons: Paint in some motherbaord tray stand off threads, Card reader mount may not match your hardware, Front bay tool-less clips don't work, No way to pick up case, except from the bottom, Heavy metal construction, Clumsy front fan LED mount on bezel, Wobbly fan speed knobs
Excerpt: Having never reviewed any Rosewill products in the past, I really didn't know what to expect. To say that I was impressed with the Thor V2 full-tower chassis would be a bit of an understatement.
