Much hype is made of new colors or new shapes for tower cases, but you do not need to be the Dalai Lama to recognize that true change comes from within. Custom water cooling is now more popular than ever while at the same time, demand for more compact cases are on the rise so a case that attempts to bridge these two seemingly disparate demands has to be designed by thinking inside the box.

Product was given in exchange for work done to produce this review.
Rosewill’s new Rise case features a unique approach to interior component housing, able to support EATX motherboards while being smaller than most full-tower cases at only 232.9 x 549.9 x 439.9mm (WxHxD). Water-cooling radiator support is also quite extensive with support for up to 140mm radiators in the rear, 3×120 or 2x140mm in the front and 2×120 or 2x140mm at the top, accommodated by modular drive mounting options and top or bottom power supply mounting support.
Packed in an unassuming brown package, the Rosewill Rise is packed inside with protective foam and scratch-proof film for the inner and outer surface of the side-window.
The accessories inside include a user’s manual, a simple guide sheet for front and top filter removal, and a bag of accessories which contain cable management ties and an assortment of black screws.
