Rosewill Thor XL-ATX Full Tower Gaming Case ReviewFri, Mar 18, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Rosewill Thor Exterior Impressions
As standard with almost all cases, this one comes packaged with thick foam blocks surrounding it and a plastic bag surrounding it.
Popping the Thor out of its protective casing we have the side of the case with its 230mm fan facing us. While I’m unsure about the X-shaped Mesh extrusion on the side panel, it doesn’t look bad.
A concern I do have is that the side 230mm fan will actually block tower coolers. Later on in the review I will show you that this is not the case, and larger tower coolers like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13, Zalman CNPS9900 MAX & Prolimatech Super Mega all fit comfortably with the side panel fan installed.
Here’s the back of the Rosewill Thor; the top holes are grommets for water cooling tubes. They can fit up to 7/16″ tubing or 1/2″ tubing if you remove the grommets. Either will be a tight fit.
Here’s the front of the Thor. Everything is this mesh like design, even the side struts feature this design. Very nice, not overtly flashy, but still not a basic look.
A good balance if I do say so myself.
