Rosewill Legacy MX2-B Case Packaging

Legacy MX2-B Front

Rosewill does what it can to keep prices low, the Legacy MX2-B is packaged in a plain cardboard box which doesn’t give any details what is inside the box; of course that’s not a big deal as these will mostly be ordered over the internet.  Keeping it simple, the front and back are identical.  In the upper right corner, a little damage to the box happened in shipping.

Legacy MX2-B Side

As with the front and back being identical, the two sides are identical.  Here some identification information is displayed such as the model name (Legacy MX2-B), and weight; very little information is provided on the box.

Legacy MX2-B Internal

Inside the box, Rosewill has packed the Legacy MX2-B in pretty standard packing for a case.  The case itself, is in a soft foam bag, which is then surrounded on two sides by plastic foam blocks.

Legacy MX2-B Accessories

Plenty of accessories are included with the Legacy MX2-B case, included are five optical drive screws, thirteen rubber hard drive anti-vibration gaskets, eight fan screws, two motherboard stand-offs, ten 3.5″ drive thumbscrews, seven 2.5″ drive screws, eight 3.5″ drive screws, a large number of paper washers, motherboard screws, a tiny motherboard speaker and the important user manual.  The number of screws included are more than enough to install all options within the Legacy MX2-B case.

    the ssd is supposed to go on the outside of the bracket, so there’s room between the motherboard and the ssd for air to flow. This also makes it fit nicer without movement.

    It’s a beautiful prototype that Jonsbo have created here, but you can harly call this complete and finished design, unless their QA department sucks.

    All that’s needed here is an additional inch, maybe inch and a half, in height to prevent the bottom fans from obstructing the motherboard. Also, the roof fan is shortsighted – a single 140mm fan? There’s plenty of space for 2 140mm fans in the roof without obstructing the drive cage assembly, and with a minor tweak to include 120 and 140mm fan mounts we could easily get a 240 or 280mm AIO water cooler up there.

    Selecting the wrong board for this build did nothing to show how good this case can be. A suitable m-ATX should have been installed.
    Also, having the CPU cooler facing front to back, across the flow of air isn’t the best idea.
    The case fans blow from bottom, to top.

    Obviously very little consideration has been given to air flow through the case, why wouldn’t they optimize it by allowing larger case fans or radiators to be mounted on the back panel?
    How is the PSU supposed to get sufficient air flowing through it without blowing out hot air through the base, straight back into the two 120mm fans?
    Even if you mount a 240mm radiator externally under the base, it would have to blow the hot air back inside to get some sort of air flow happening.

    Can the bottom fans feed (support) the top video card in an SLI/CF configuration? It seems the bottom card will block airflow completely, or are dual-card builds required to make use of the back panel 80mm fans?
    Would you recommend non-modular PSUs instead for this case?
    Advertising the Legacy as an ATX case might not bode well with many, and for a good reason.
