  • Rosewill WolfAlloy Review Case Review



    When selecting a case we all want style and features without breaking the bank.  The Rosewill WolfAlloy case strives to be the answer to your search.  We first saw the WolfAlloy and its stone textured brother the WolfStone at CES thanks to the vivid claw marks and couldn’t wait to see more.

    Targeted squarely at enthusiasts while maintain a price tag well under most of the competition, the WolfAlloy will certainly make the short list for a lot of builders looking to maximize their build dollars.  Let’s see if Rosewill has hit the mark!

    Currently the WolfAlloy is offered in black with the claw mark accent in orange.  The black finish is most likely the source of the alloy portion of the name.  Those craving even more style points can elect for the stone finish of the WolfStone with its red accent.  We are a bit partial to orange accents around here!

    The black and orange theme is carried throughout the rest of the case with an all-black interior and orange LED lighting.  Yes Rosewill really knows how to get our attention.

    Rosewill may be best known as a part of NewEgg or more aptly as their hardware division but they are striving to establish an identity based on affordably hardware solutions that doesn’t sacrifice quality.  It’s also nice to see the world class customer service is still a bragging point.  These days the selection of cases alone makes it a safe bet they will have something you like.

    Modding is still a big part of building a computer either it be in component selection or pimping up the chassis the personalization of your computer is a large part of ownership.  A budget friendly case with a bit of style like the WolfAlloy might provide the inspiration for a little Dremel work.  A full featured case in this price range can provide an opportunity for customization with little risk.  That isn't to say you have to modify every case you buy but, every chassis should offer those opportunities and that his how we do our reviews.
