Rosewill Thor Full Tower Chassis Review - The Rosewill Thor Full Tower Case

The Thor full tower from Rosewill has me intrigued to say the least. Let's see if it is truly "the best choice in value".

The Rosewill Thor Full Tower Case

The front of the Thor is made mainly of the mesh covers and large area for the 230mm intake fan covering. The sides are made of molded plastic with venting added along with a removable top half that I will show you in a bit.

The front I/O is the main hub for everything. Lighting, fan control, power and reset, and even a USB 3.0 port are all found on the brushed aluminum plate.

Behind the I/O on the top of the chassis there is a large catch all area followed by five large plastic louvers.

On the left is a large plastic switch to open and close the louvers. If they are closed there is a small area out the back to send the air, but if things are warm you can open these for better ventilation.

The left side comes with the large X shaped mesh panel inserted; this will hold either four 120mm fans, or you can leave the 230mm fan there that is already installed. Above you will find three smaller vents, these will just breathe as the airflow dictates.

The back of the chassis has ventilation down the left, behind the motherboard tray, ten expansion slots, room for a 120 or 140mm fan, even grommets in ½" holes for water cooling at the top.

The right panel is plain. Since the doors swing out from the back, there isn't even need for a finger dimple in the back.
