Rosewill Legacy MX2-B Mid-Tower Chassis

Fresh out of the box, we gander at the front of the MX2-B. Full-length brushed aluminium is what we get, with a slot at the top and the I/O set low and to the left. While both sides are ninety degree corners, as the chassis gets to the top and bottom, the same piece of aluminium gently curves into the top and bottom of the chassis.

The I/O panel offers a metal power button that has a tiny blue LED in the middle of it and a similarly sized red LED below for HDD activity notification. There is a 3.5mm jack for the HD Audio, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and to finish it up, the pair of USB 3.0 ports.

The same piece of aluminum from the front wraps around the corner and becomes the top of the chassis, and it does the same at the bottom. Along with more brushed aluminum to look at, near the back is a mesh panel that gives the 140mm fan a way to vent the chassis.

From this view, it is much easier to see how the front, top, and the bottom are all made from one sheet at it rounds off all the corners from this view. The side panel is also plain but, just like the rest of the chassis, carries on with more brushed aluminum, and the cool thing there, is that the bottoms wrap under the chassis to carry the curved theme as well.

Looking at the back of the chassis, we can see where the main exterior screws into the separated back panel in this design. We also see the rear I/O, a spot for a pair of 80mm fans, seven vented expansion slots, and a PSU socket for the front mounted PSU.

The right side of the chassis is a direct copy of the left side. The interesting thing with these panels is that these panels pop off with a ball and cup system of clips to secure them. No screws are needed, and they do stay in place well, while also being easy to remove for access.

The bottom of the chassis is even a vast expanse of brushed aluminum with two large rubber pads added to it to keep this chassis from sliding around. Also--this is for looks and functionality--the actual floor of the chassis is raised a fair bit to allow the fans and PSU to gather air inside of the chassis.
