That's a really decent Rosewill case actually. Added to budget parts list.

It's the tiny version of mine.... My only complaint on Rosewill is the case feels "cheap" compared to my Antec 900 and Corsair 650D.

Sharp edges, and slightly "flimsy" feeling that shows is value price point.

Oh and it's only at Newegg.

Amazon sells Rosewill cases too
http://http://www.amazon.com/Rosewil.../dp/B004K4TEA4

The Rosewill Blackbone cases that I use are thinner sheet metal but we are talking about a $32. case, and after you get everything in it, it's sturdy enough just to sit somewhere, I would not recommend hauling it around to LAN parties
The description from NE and Amazon do not say how thick the steel is, so the Black hawk could be somewhat flimsy, I know that the Rosewill Blackbone cases do not have sharp edges
Maybe Fat Clown will let us know more about that Black Hawk, Rosewill does make a decent case for the money

My USB 3.0 fell in about 2 months after i got it and put in a USB, it also stopped working too.

I would have sent it back, but its like 20$ to ship a case. They sent me a whole new front panel(the connectors)

Yea, kind of a reason why I don't recommend Rosewill anything, but it's that or a 200r, or an even cheaper Thermaltake V3 which is SUPER flimsy. The 200r barely moves but is still light.

Kind of disappointing considering I have a Raidmax Scorpio which was 30 bucks in 2003 and is solid steel. It broke my Dremel!
