Default Rosewill Launches Armor Evolution Case

Rosewill recently launched the Armor Evolution case, a unique case that is ATX sized but supports an E-ATX motherboard. As the pictures demonstrate, it has ample support for USB 3.0 via front ports and plenty of coolers.

Honestly, at first I thought "Rosewill....nah!" but then I actually looked at it. E-ATX support and likely a low price. They might have something here.....

Mid tower for E-ATX.... not bad, but I suspect many folks won't like the rough ulitarian look.

Rosewill have interesting case, I receive my Huge Blackhawk last Friday, the problem is the case is not well reinforced, it was damage in transport and the box show no damage at all. If you sit on the case I'm pretty sure it gone collapse, won't happen with a Corsair 800d.

Would love to see a case like this (corsair600t, etc etc) with just a bit more room between the bottom expansion slot / motherboard and the PSU..
Either that or some way to mount the psu at the frontand get good air-flow to the GPU's.

Other than that, this looks quite bloody good. The utilitarian look actually isn't too much (eg the HAF cases) and (for me) works quite well.
If it has solid build quality / good filters and cooling options - no obvious problems then it would be a case I'd seriously consider.

Reminds me a bit of the HAF 932.

They are not doing to bad these days designing cases and picking the Right OEM for there PSU's. They might be Neweggs Housebrand but they have a lot of comperable equipment out on the market currently.

They weren't available here in Canada until recently. Rosewill is a Newegg "house" brand which has since expanded a bit into some other retailers.
