There's no shortage of small-form-factor cases at CES this year, but plenty of more traditional towers have also caught the eyes of our roving editor on the ground in Las Vegas. Check out Rosewill's new WolfStone and WolfAlloy ATX mid-towers:
The one on the left has a faux stone finish, while the one on the right gets the "metal alloy" treatment. Both have superficial wounds inflicted by Rosewill's new pet, which should at least provide some ventilation at the front.
The cases come loaded with one 140-mm and three 120-mm fans. Mounts are available for an additional 140-mm and three more 120-mm spinners, too. Support for 240-mm radiators? Check. Storage options comprise dual optical bays along with internal mounts for 7-8 3.5" and 2.5" drives.
For folks who prefer taller towers, Rosewill has the B2 Spirit, a murdered-out monolith with room for larger E-ATX, XL-ATX, and HPTX motherboards.
This imposing skyscraper has four optical bays on the outside, plus 10 internal bays that support 3.5" and 2.5" drives. The spec sheet says there are mounts for 10 140-mm fans, five of which are populated by default. It's possible to run a pair of jumbo 200-mm spinners, as well. Curiously, though, radiator support only extends to 280-mm units—not to larger 360-mm ones.
The B2 Spirit is priced at $199.99 and due in Q2, while its canid cousins are coming this quarter for $99.99 each.
