Case Build & Finished Product

The front of the chassis does not change from start to finish with the Rosewill Cullinan MX, and we like cases such as this. Of course, if you care to change the fans, or install an AIO in the front, the view will then be different.

To complete the build, we did have to make concessions as to which RAM to use, as the standard RAM for this build blocked the 280mm AIO from being installed at the top. As for the motherboard, we found no issues installing it, but do mind the rear fan wiring when putting the motherboard in. The video card is level with the world, and most of the wires are well hidden from view.

The rear I/O dust shield only locks in at the top and the bottom, and while the GPU can be mounted, we did have to force the back of the case inward to align the screws to the slots. As for the PSU at the bottom, it does go into place and mounts easily, but we would have liked rubber pads for its support rather than steel bumps in the floor of the chassis.

We did not try that hard to do much with the wiring here. The 8-pin lead will hide within the frame at the back, and the 24-pin ran to its needed location and was tied to the motherboard tray. Most of the rest of the wires go where they need to be, and either hide at the bottom of the chassis behind the frame, or in front of the PSU.

While we do wish that the side panel's glass was painted like that on the front bezel, we won't be pulling too many points for the lack of it. It is because the overall look is still decent enough to make many look past that. We love the view inside of the chassis, and even though we see many mid-towers with glass on them, we are still a sucker for this aesthetic choice.

Where the Rosewill Cullinan MX shines is when the chassis is up and running. Yes, the added interior features and modularity are all great, but the rainbow mode running on the fans takes the Cullinan MX to the top of the heap with this chassis design. There are many ways to go with the lighting, but we felt the rainbow mode shows not only the intensity but the possibility of RGB LED colors used in other modes as well.
