First Looks

The Rosewill case we received was the R5605-BK, a black case composed of 0.8mm SECC cold rolled Steel. This mid tower case has a full list of features that include both the outside and the inside of the case.

On the front panel of the case we have a mesh wired door which will swing open a full 270 degrees. When the door is open the four, 5 slots and one, 3 slot can be used. Something unique about this is that the 3 slot is on top of the other 5 slots. I suppose this could be used for space saving on the inside of the case.

Towards the bottom of the front panel you will find air vents for the 120mm fan located behind the panel. Towards the top of the panel you will find 2 USB 2.0 Ports, 2 Audio Ports, 1 IEEE1394 Port, the power button, and the HD activity LED. Sorry guys, no reset switch here.

You can also find a locking mechanism for the front panel on the right side of the case close to the middle of the door. It's only use is to hold the panel to the case. It doesn't really provide a lot of security seeming how the power button is located in plain sight rather than inside of the door.

The side panel offers two venting holes for internal components. The CPU vent also offers ductwork on the other side of the panel to allow a direct path for airflow. Don't worry about the vent getting dirty because it has an easy-clean filter. The other vent is for airflow on graphics cards.

Right next to both vents is a locking mechanism. Just simply press the button and the case will pop open. You better make sure it's unlocked first. To close it again, attach it to your case and press the metal tab back onto the panel. Then lock it so nobody steals any parts from your kick-ass rig.

If you take the side panel off of the case and press the tab down and unlatch the panel again you will hear a heavy metal sound almost like a trebuchet that launches cars.

There isn't anything too exciting on the back of the case. Your basic power supply, motherboard, and PCI slots, and a built in grill for the 120mm fan. Also located on the back are two thumb screws to hold the side panel to the case. I don't know about you, but I love thumb screws just for the simple fact that I don't have to find a screw driver every time I want to open up my case.
