Rosewill Himars Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Rosewill Himars Mid-Tower Chassis




The front of the Himars is where a lot of the style of the case is found. With an opening in the middle for the front I/O panel and optional 5.25" bays, the bezel is designed with lines running from top to bottom, much like rays of the sun, emanating near the Rosewill badge at the bottom.





The lower section of the front bezel is removable, and we see only steel mesh behind the removed section to attempt to trap dust drawn into the HDD caddy. Inside of the chassis, there is a handle marked "pull" and allows the bays to tilt-out forward, given access to the bays inside of the steel cage.




If you were to pull on the handle as we did, you would find four plastic trays accommodating either 2.5" or 3.5" drives, which are all removable. The left most tray is where Rosewill decided to ship the box of hardware.




The front I/O panel offers the usual suspects. Things start on the left with the power button, followed by a pair of 3.5mm HD Audio jacks. Rosewill also adds a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a single USB 2.0 port, and finishes things off with a reset button.




The top of the chassis is smooth across it, angled along the sides, and even has some louvers cut in it near the back for added style. Ventilation is large in this top panel and is currently covered with the magnetic dust filter cut to fit the shape indented into the panel.




A view of the left side of the Himars shows us a smallish window which is off centered and confines the view inside of the case. We see there is a slight angle to the front bezel, and along its edge, we find the panel does not fit the case that well.




From the back, the Himars has a thick top, above the rear I/O and the exhaust fan. The seven expansion slot covers are ventilated, and the area to the right of them is also made of mesh to help with air flow. There is a total of four grommets for external water cooling found here, and a large opening at the bottom for the PSU.




On the right side of the Himars, we have similar louvers in the top panel to match those on the left, but this time we can see the side panel aligns much better. The body line sticks to the same gap along the bezel and top edge.




Under the chassis, we did find a dust filter for the PSU which slides out of the back, and also can now see the optional fan location in the middle of the floor. Around these, we find large round plastic feet which have had rubber rings applied, so the Himars will not move around easily.
