The original Blackhawk PC case is an legend presence for PC builders and gamers alike, but recent advances in gaming tech and the need to build-in redundancy and extra power have created circumstances in which very few mainstream cases can provide the foundation -- and the expansion options -- that lives up to the new reality for PC gaming.

After taking a long and hard look at the market, PC case maker Rosewill set out to re-engineer the Gaming Case and the result is their Blackhawk-Ultra -- a gaming case that covers every aspect of modern gaming hardware, from HPTX support, adequate stock cooling, and even mounting a second PSU to isolate the power for multiple high-end graphics cards!
