Rosewill Legacy MX2-B Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Case Build and Finished Product




The nice thing about the MX2-B is that even when the build is completed, that sleek and simple look that we started with is exactly what we have when the build is finished.




We had to be selective of the CPU cooler used, and we also had to go with the mini-card as the HD7950 is definitely too long. While cramped, the only real issue we had is that the native USB 3.0 port is blocked by fans, rendering our ports useless.




The dust shield for the rear I/O panel went in just fine, but we did have to flex the back panel to get the holes to line up with the bracket on the VGA, but in the end, it was sort of worth it as at least it sets level across the chassis.




At first, we had thought we would run into wiring issues, but in reality, it isn't that bad at all. Of course, we did not maximize the capacity of this chassis, and that would involve more wiring, but we are pleased with being able to hide what we did.




Once the panels are back on the sides of the chassis, we are back to square one as far as its aesthetic appeal with a completed build inside. That is something that is not lost on us, and we can appreciate this in almost any environment from the professionals to the newest amateur gamer.




We did miss the very fast flicker of the red LED to signify the activity of the SSD, but you can see the blue LED that will be on whenever the chassis is powered on. Outside of these tiny LEDs, you have to get real close to the chassis to hear anything substantial to realize it is on, and that leads to the 27 dB noise level we recorded at a foot away from the top exhaust; otherwise, it will be hard to hear in the average room.
