We broke the first news about Rosewill’s fully-featured R5 “sleeper mid-tower” gaming case at PAX East 2012; Rosewill has been busy revamping the prototype that we got hands-on time with and, as a result of adding more features, has bumped the price a bit. Let’s take a look at what Rosewill calls “a top-ranking gaming case at under $100.”
The case’s major advantages come from its included set of 3x120mm cooling fans, front-panel USB 3.0 ports with 20pin headers, and a reasonable price at $90 even. The Z9 Plus still holds its ground as one of the most competitive cases in this range, but we’ll give the R5 a good shot and get a review up ASAP for you all.
Here are the specs:
|Front||2x120mm Intake (Included)|
|Rear||1x120mm Exhaust (Included)
1x140mm Exhaust (Optional)
|Side||2x120/140mm (Intake, Optional)|
|Top||2x120mm or 1x120mm & 1x140mm (Exhaust, Optional)|
|HDD||2x120mm (Push, Optional)|
|Bottom||1x120/140mm (Intake, Optional)|
Here are the cool features, per the Newegg page:
The case has been changed to a $90 price-point, so it's a bit less impressive than what we originally saw at PAX East, but it's still impressive. We do have a full review coming, though -- make sure you follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, or sub to our RSS feed if you'd like updates when they arrive.
