The case has ample space to play around with. There is a good inch and a half of space between the edge of the motherboard and our optical drive.

Our Winfast video card installed without any hassle. A snap of the lever and it was in place.

During our installation of the motherboard (Asus P4B533), we noticed the front bezel port cables were actually correctly labeled for once.

After a few moments, with our P4 1.9Ghz installed and ready to go:

As an added bonus, the rear exhaust fan includes a few LEDs. Now the only problem I see with this, is that with the small window, you can't really see anything.

After installing Windows XP Pro, I did a quick check on the temperature at idle and full load. With the case closed and locked, CPU idle temps didn't get past 40.5C using the stock Intel cooler. Full load brought it to 45.4C. Room temperature was recorded at 27C. No additional fans were used on top of the one that came with the case.

Overall, the Chenbro Gaming Bomb is an awesome deal at under $50 USD. Since everything is a screwless install, it's perfect for the constant tweaker. Add to the mix the ability to lock your case and you got a secure rig to tote around to LAN events. The easily removeable drive cage and bezel is an added treat.



Pros:

  • Screwless design
  • Lockable case
  • Very spacious
  • Removeable drive cage
  • Snap in optical drive brackets


Cons:

  • Locking notches do not always line up correctly
  • Front bezel needs to be removed in order to install any 5.25" exposed drives
