Rosewill Thor V2 Overview
The Rosewill Thor V2 is quite a large case being a full tower. The actual dimensions are 9.14” x 22.84” x 21.89” (WxHxD). We received the white version of the case, but it also comes in black as well. The case is mostly made of SECC steel with the front bezel being plastic. The case comes in at just over 30lbs without anything installed.
Starting at the front of the case we can see it uses mesh bezel covers. These are supposed to have filters on them, but many of them simply fell off. There are five 5.25-inch drive bays and a single 3.5-inch external drive bay. Still very interesting to see the 3.5-inch external bay here, but I guess Rosewill figured most people are not going to have more than five 5.25-inch devices. Below the drive bays is a large ventilated section that has a 230mm intake fan behind it.
Moving up you will find the control panel. Here you will find an eSATA port, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, headphone and microphone connections and two fan control knobs. These knobs are labeled “Fan Speed A” and “Fan Speed B”. You are able to connect 3 fans to each controller. At the top center of the control panel is the power switch.
When you first take a look a the top of the case you may be thinking what the hell it is closed off! There is a small switch on the top of the case, press it over and it will open the top vents on the case. This is a very cool design feature and looks great! On the top of the case there is another 230mm fan.
Moving along to the side panel it has 3 large ventilated sections towards the top. These are more for show than anything. Moving down there is a huge ventilated section that has a third 230mm fan installed. If you are not a fan of the 230mm fan you can swap it out for four 120mm fans.
There is a lot going on at the back of the case. Starting at the top you have 4 watercooling holes with the installed rubber inserts. Below that you have a 140mm exhaust fan, that gives us a total of 4 fans included with this case (three 230mm, one 140mm). There are 10 expansion slots and next top them there are 3 ventilated sections to help cool your video cards. Also notice on the left side of the case you have ventilation holes as well. Just like most new cases your power supply will be mounted on the bottom of the case. There is a dust filter that pulls out from the bottom of the case for easy cleaning. You have easy to remove thumbscrews on both side panels.
