Overall though, you’re receiving a case that can go toe-to-toe with a more expensive case like the HAF XB, and give it a run for its money. Stock it cools exceptionally well, while being pretty quiet, so quiet in fact that I never felt the need to adjust the fan controller from the max setting. (although I am use to abnormally loud PC’s) The way that Rosewill was able to sweeten the pot in the cooling department, was by giving you the option to install up to an additional seven fans inside the case. This not only gives you a lot of expansion options, but also gives you the ability to mod the case a bit, if you wished. Stock it will support a 240mm RAD at the top, and you may be able to mod the side of the case to support an additional RAD, but other than that, there isn’t a whole lot of room for making anymore adjustments.
The pros definitely outweigh the cons in my book. Sure you’re paying $79.99 for a mid tower case that only comes with three fans, but in reality you’re receiving a case with the potential to do nearly anything you want with it. There is ample room inside for working with your hands, plenty of fan mounts, tool-less devices on everything, and tons of dust filters.
This case would be perfect for the budget gamer, who is looking to upgrade or build a new rig. At $79.99 it’s not the cheapest mid tower on the market, but the extra that you’re paying does net you some excellent features that are listed above. If you’ve got more of a budget than the aver budget gamer, then you may want to shop around a bit before settling on the R5.
