   I threw my test rig into the case, which consisted of:

  • AMD XP 2000+ w/TT Volcano 9 (AS3)
  • EPOX 8K7A+ Motherboard
  • BuffaloTech 512MB DDR
  • eVGA GF2MX 32MB
  • Windows XP SP1

   The case came with some documents detailing Chenbro's very own testing by an outside firm.  They used a P4 3.06Ghz CPU and received pretty decent results.  We won't go into that great of a detail, but our AMD should be fun.

   I ran the full setup at idle and full load, no overclocks.  At idle, with a 27C room temperature, the case temperatures didn't rise past 33.5C.  Using just the included fan in the rear, at full load, we see the temperature rise and fluctuate around 37-38C.  This stayed put while a few games of Counter-Strike were played.  It operates with minimal sound, a nice change in pace compared to our other fan laden case.

   Overall, the case is easy to work with.  All parts are included like the I/O plate, screws and cables.  The removable hard drive cage is a bonus as well as the side cooling duct.

   Thanks to Chenbro for sending over this sample, they have a huge line of cases, we'll show you some more in the near future.  If you are looking for one yourself, try our Low Price Search Engine to find it.



Pros:

  • Nice and clean finish
  • Front mounted extension ports
  • Removable HD cage
  • Included CPU cooling duct


  • Cons:

  • Break away expansion slots
  • Front expansion bay covers constantly loose
