ive worked with two rosewill cases. each one was 40 dollars or less and i was definately impressed of the value.

but for the case you pointed at, id recommend going with something else for that amount of money. rosewill cases are cheaply made. go with a coolermaster. i generally would only recommend a rosewill case for a budget build and then only if it was a supberb deal like $40 with free shipping.

I have that case, BTW. It's sitting right behind me as I speak. It's amazing. A surprisingly nice build from Rosewill; however, the design is clearly stolen from Cooler Master. It's almost an exact replica of the CM690 II Advanced.

I honestly chose it for aesthetic reasons, since the compared specs are almost identical. I never liked how the front of the CM 690 dips down in the front. Shallow, I know, but there you have it.

It's funny because the dimensions are so similar that I was able to take my window panel from my CM 690 and slap it onto my Blackhawk. I'll probably pick up a CM 690 II advanced window panel later, since it allows for my visibility.

That being said, the metal is a bit thinner than the CM 690.

they change the socket because each cpu holds new technology. amd keeps recycling the same tech over and over. please dont think im raggin on amd. i like amd and intel. amd for budget builds, and intel for epeen.

Simply buy a SATA II controller card, or use the SATA III ports. Problem solved.

WOW!!! I know they stole some design elements from others, but it's basically an EXACT replica. I still like the RW better though; I like clean and simple designs and I dislike the silver trim lines on the CM 690 II. I also got a combo deal with my GPU.

The CPUs are OK- hell, they're much better than OK, they're PHENOMENAL! the chipset... well not so much right now, but it's a nonissue if you are using a SATAIII port, a PCI-E SSD. I like the latter, I figure if you're gonna buy an SSD, you might as well go all out. Be aware though, the 1st generation revodrive is NOT bootable! X2 is fine.

The problem is not Sandy Bridge (CPU), it is Cougar Point (P67 Chipset), and not the whole chipset, just the Sata II 3 Gbps ports.

Maybe its just me but i do not like PSUs on the bottom of the case. I had a case with a cpu on the bottom and my temps were higher overall. I also ran into problems with cable lengths.
