Summary: If you are looking for a 4u case, definitely consider this one.
Pros: Sturdy, heavy and will last forever. Options galore and plenty of room for pretty much everything you can think of. Someone mentioned the front switches being flimsy, but they seem fine to me. I do agree that the blue LED is too bright, but I'm not sleeping next to this so it doesn't matter. The front left fan IS loud, so I might replace it. Otherwise I'm very happy with this case.
Cons: Blue LED is too bright and front fan is loud.
Summary: I had a rather old desktop (started life as Win XP) that I built years ago, and I was getting rather annoying with it's very slow performance. It was time for an upgrade! My solution was to get a new mother board, new processor and 8 Gig of memory. So I got the following from Amazon.com.
Summary: This is an excellent case for the price. If you purchase one there are only three things to consider - 1. if you are looking for a quiet box you need to replace the 200 mm fan with something like a Coolmaster 2. if you generate a lot of heat I added 2 80 mm fans in back 3. this case does not come with a speaker which I would add. This shock mount bays are excellent as is the overall case design.
Summary: When i bought this case i did not have the benefits of other reviews so i hope this can help whoever is looking at this case to make a decision. The case is well built for the price range with a gauge steel that is similar to a high price server. There are the usual features such as front USB (2), indicator LEDs for hard drives etc. It also has indicator LEDs for your network cards if your motherboard supports this feature. Case comes with a 120 mm front fan installed.
Summary: VERY VERY good quality case! everything fits precise, buttons arn't cheap feeling at all, handles are not plastic, NOTHING on this case is plastic (except buttons, filter, and pci card holders), looks very very good! only thing.... didn't come with a slim dvd reader like in picture, comes with bags of bolts, a bracket for the dvd reader, comes with motherboard standoffs pre installed, comes with extra standoffs too,
Summary: BIG and STURDY! This case is well crafted and built to be strong. I just built a rack mounted PC for running an audio recording system. The case compartments and parts are on par with the best cases I've ever used. If you've ever built with a high end case you know there's a difference between cases that use premium materials and those that use cheaper ones. Chenbro seems on par with Corsair and Silverstone.
Summary: If you are looking for a tower case instead of a rack, this case is a great option. One or both rack ears can be removed, allowing the case to stand on its side like a tower.
Pros: Great case. Shallow depth works well in custom rack setups. The ventilation on this case is fantastic, hard to beat when compared to other similar priced tower or rack cases. The front 12cm fan make it easy to maintain positive case air pressure, to cut down on dust buildup. There is room for an extra 8cm front fan and 2 8cm rear fans.
Cons: No cons really. But wish list would be for full exterior power coating, and an option to install a second 12cm fan in place of the right drive bay.
