   We have not reviewed a case in a while, so what better time to kick one off again for the Christmas season. We have a model today from Chenbro, the PC61319. It's more of a business/office oriented case, with some extra cooling.  The PC613XX line are all the same, except that you can change out the front bezel.  Our PC61319 is an all black version, with matching silver bezel.  Let's take a look at what it has to offer:

   Here are some specs from their website:

M/B Form Factor : ATX
CPU Type : Intel PIII/P4, AMD Athlon
Dimension (DXWXH)
  • 438mmx 180mmx 428mm
  • 17.24"x 7.09"x 16.85"
  • Drive Bays
  • Exposed 4x 5.25"
  • Exposed 1x 3.5"
  • Internal 2x 3.5"
  • PSU Type (Option) : PS/2 ATX12V 300W
    Switch : Power ON/OFF & Reset
    LEDs : Power & HDD Activity
    Slot Opening : 7
    Cooling fan (Option)
  • Front, 1x80mm or 92mm
  • Rear, 1x80mm or 92mm
  • Front Panel I/O (Option) : 2xUSB2.0, 2xAudio, up to 1xIEEE1394
    Construction : SECC
    Net Weight : 7.1 Kg
    Single Packing
  • 20', 395(400)
  • 40', 808(880)
  • 40'H, 888(1100)
  •    The case is not large and rather light weight.  The finish is decent, not entirely smooth, but with a rougher texture than most cases we've run through.

       The front bezel has the standard expansion bays.  A large power on button decorates the front as well.  At the bottom, you will find audio, FireWire and USB ports.  Very common feature on modern cases.  I wouldn't buy a non-stock case without them, you shouldn't either.

       One thing that bugged me was that the front bay covers were loose.  The tabs do not seem loose or broken, yet they refuse to stay in their place.  So unless you have a full set of DVD or CDRW drives ready, you'll have to deal with this:
