Rosewill Thor V2 Computer Case

Rosewill Thor V2 Fan FilterAnother added bonus about the Thor V2 is fan filters. While not every fan inside the case supports its own filter, the power supply intake does. The filter can be removed, washed and re-installed to cut down on dust and other debris from clogging up the PSU.

The Rats Nest is gone

Rosewill’s team of engineers did a phenomenal job in architecting the internal features of the Thor-V2. The inner part of the case is extremely spacious, even with all Rosewill Thor V2 Casecomputer components installed. In this large space the motherboard looks as though it is a small box sitting in a large room. Equipped with many grommets, the Thor-V2 offers a vast amount of cable control. The grommets are masterfully well placed so that installers can acquire the best access to ports on the motherboard.

After each cable is ran through the desired grommets, the side panel does an insanely good job at hiding the tucked away wires. The drive bays for the hard drives are uniquely designed so that all the cables are fed to the side panel for more cable management. The Thor-V2 cable management feature will leave the user feeling incomplete even after all components have been installed—it just gives you that naked feeling, but not too naked, and a very clean display of your money installed.

Let there be Air!

Rosewill Thor V2Every extreme gamer and serious over clocker knows the importance of air-flow within a computer case. The Thor-V2 is equipped with four pre-installed fans—and not your ordinary 120mm fan, either. Thor’s front fan incorporates a 230mm fan, drawing in air across the HDD bay area to reduce heat generated by the drives (unless you’re one of the lucky souls sporting all solid state drives). The side penal 230mm fan reduces heat dissipated from main board and components keeping the GPU, Northbridge/Soutbridge and CPU incased with fresh cool air from outside the case at all times.

If the proper heatsink is chosen, the Thor-V2 will take advantage of air removal thoroughly with the provided rear 140mm fan by adequately removing heat dissipated off the CPU heatsink. Between Thor’s cable management and free-flowing air design, it becomes apparent that someone at Rosewill did their homework, and deserves an A+ for ingenuity.  Again, each fan can be controlled to the user’s preference of fan noise and cooling control via the front panel.


Final thoughts

Rosewill‘s ambition in bringing forth a case that the consumer can take pride in is just part of the package. Much work and detail has gone into the Thor V2, and what they might not have done right in its predecessor—it certainly has done everything right with V2.

ipKonfig.com Editors Choice AwardBoth quality and affordability is shown through their flawless craftsmanship in the Rosewill Thor V2. With all the features the case has to offer, it is one top-notch case for its price range. The case offers innovative engineering and proves to be more than accommodating offering those who enjoy keeping the inside of the case clean, and cool. Rosewill has also done a first-class job choosing the correct brightness of LEDs—so ‘light’ sleepers can rest easily. This case is creation of excellence and is a must have for enthusiasts’ who are on a budget looking for the most bang for their buck—and then some. The only down fall of the Thor-V2: It doesn’t make me toast! (yet!)
