Rosewill R901-P – Interior & Installation

Product image

Opening up the case we can see a relatively simple layout and at first glance the lack of any tool-less mechanisms is apparent, something featured in mid towers cheaper than this such as the Cooler Master Centurion 5.

Taking a close look at the motherboard tray though we can see that the case does offer some form of a cable management system, something which many rival products don’t include.

There were a couple of installation woes that we encountered while installing our test system into the chassis.

One of the first restrictions we encountered was the lack of flexibility regarding hard drive installation and removal. With the motherboard installed, you are unable to remove the HDD cage from the 5.25” bays as the ports on the motherboard can potentially block the cage from being pulled out, a problem clearly illustrated with our Asus P5Q Deluxe. This wouldn’t be such a problem if you could simply install hard drives straight into the machine, however, this isn’t an option as you cannot access the screw holes required to secure the hard drive into place without having the cage removed from the chassis.

Removing the cage isn’t the easiest task either, after unscrewing it from the 5.25” bays it requires quite a bit of force to remove.

Another issue is with the top mounted exhaust fan, unfortunately due to its placement we are unable to install our 750W Corsair unit into the chassis while retaining functionality and are forced to use a smaller Coolermaster unit. Even then with the smaller power supply it is still required to remove the fan and then reinstall it afterwards as the PSU cannot slide cleanly into the mounting position without the space.

Besides from those two issues installation is relatively straight forward and basic, there are no tool-less mechanisms, optical drives simply slide in and are screwed into place.

The PCI-E slot covers pop out and are permanently removed. Additionally, the metal used around the popout covers is particularly weak and is easy to bend and disfigure while attempting to remove the covers. We also had issues routing our 6 pin power connector for the graphics card through the cable routing system due to the ring suppressor on the cable not fitting through the holes properly.

A 4850 is the largest card you’ll fit in here with the hard drive bay utilised at the bottom of the rig, however the HDD cage can be moved higher up in the case.
