Rosewill Wind Ryder RZLS142-AP Case Review

Inside Wind Ryder

The side panels are fastened to the chassis using thumbscrews, which is great. Even though you can remove the right panel, the motherboard tray is permanently attached to the chassis. In Figure 6, you can see the left panel remove from the case. As you can see it has a duct and a small mesh to make the case compatible with Intel’s Chassis Air Guide Design 1.1. This design, however, is targeted to Pentium 4 CPUs based on the “Prescott” core, so it looks like we are talking about a case with a dated design.

In Figure 7 you have an overall look from the interior of this case.

In Figure 8, you can see the rear panel viewed from inside, where you can see the rear 120 mm fan and the screwless mechanism for installing daughterboards.

As mentioned, the rear 120 mm fan uses a three-pin connector for motherboards. It is black and does not glow when the PC is turned on.

The mechanism for fastening daughterboards looks cheap. It is made with just one long plastic piece instead of using individual mechanisms. Also, the tip of the mechanism – which holds the mechanism to the bottom part of the case – is very thin and it is just a matter of time until you break it.
