4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Well constructed, heavy duty case. I like the hard drive cage and a hot swap cage might be a great upgrade.

Cons: The posts for mounting the motherboard are fixed (as far as I can tell) and didn't line up perfectly with my motherboard (SuperMicro X9DRL-3f). I just dremeled off the one I didn't need (it would've been in contact with the back of the motherboard in a very bad way). Could also use more airflow in this case...

3 out of 5 eggsmisleading details

Pros: Sounds like a great case, but see cons.

Cons: In researching this case I found feedback on 1/14/2011 that stated this case as not having the hot swap cage. NE support referred me to the manufacturer to verify @ 909-947-3200.
I verified with Chenbro that it is an option and is in fact NOT INCLUDED.
They list a few options available, but the one to replace the drive cage on this case with SATA 6Gb/s capability and 80mm fan is: 84H220610-079

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Case

Pros: I've used Chenbro cases in the past so I'm already a fan. This is a solid case with everything you'd expect for ease of installation and component replacement. I love the fact that it has a large fan for cooling up to four hard drives and the entire drive chassis is removed from the front using thumb screws. This is a huge plus as heat is the number one killer of hard drives and my 10,000 RPM Raptors will last much longer. A large fan on the back of the case in addition to the hard drive fan will keep the entire system cool and running at optimal performance. Six 5 1/4" drive rails and one 3 1/2" makes it very easy to install and remove components. Additional screws are installed in the case as well as extra screws in a bag. It also has dual locking mechanisms, one for the front panel and one for the side panel. Not that I need it but it’s nice to have. With my ASUS motherboard and I7 processor, fan speeds are controlled by the motherboard and therefore it’s very quite.

Cons: No cons that I could see.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: This case is great. Built to a REALLY high standard. It's seriously built like a tank. I think you could drop kick it and you'd be in a hospital. Plenty of room - 4 hard drive bays that are cooled by a medium RPM fan that cruises and keeps those drives cool.

Cons: None really. It's heavy. But that's not a con.

Other Thoughts: These work great for most everything. I bought the bigger one as well and that one is absolutely great. Chenbro makes some really quality equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsKudos!

Pros: Very nice case. Solid construction. Great air flow. Intel certified for S1200BT server boards. All fans are standard 25mm depth and easily replaced. Plenty of room. Clean looking. Takes standard ATX PSU of your choosing. Contrary to some other reviews here the fans are quite.

Cons: I cannot atest to the comments here about the motherboard standouts not matching up for a dual Xeon motherboard but I can tell you they do not line up for a MicroATX motherboard. Pity. Intel now has the S1200BTS server motherboard which is micro ATX. Chenbro needs to update the standouts to match all motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I come from SuperMicro. CSE-733TQ-XXXB to be exact. I will never go back. Chenbro gave some real thought to this case and overall it is a dream. I use their 4-bay hot-swap backplane and it seems kind of a waste to throw away the drive cage it ships with. Not a biggie. Still can't figure out the difference between this case and their SR10569.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for anyone

Pros: Solid construction
Plenty of space
Good airflow

Cons: Hard drive mounting could be nicer
Not very good at isolating noise

Other Thoughts: I can't imagine building a workstation and not wanting to use this case. Excellent construction, good locks, and good space. This case is for ATX boards, but if you have an SSI board (EEB/CEB) the next model up has the proper mount points.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Just built two servers for seperate clients with these.

Sturdy, logical design, looks like a server to the client. They get puzzled when servers come in desktop cases... never mind they want it built cheap.

Thanks for the great budget case Chenbro!

Cons: It does not come with the hot swap bays as described. I won't knock an egg for it as it's a marketing problem rather than a quality problem. Also, it's still a good deal without the swap bays.

Other Thoughts: Swap cage with backplane available from the egg here with cooling fan:

and here without for larger motherboards:

4 out of 5 eggsClean and good air flow

Pros: It has a lot of the easy access features you'd want. Removable drive slots, good airflow, and easy maintenance. Of course it also has those fun locks that most people don't use.

Cons: The hard drive compartment doesn't seem the most secure, but it works fine. There are also no instructions. Meaning you'll be puzzling what to do with all these green plastic tabs if you're not used to those systems. A big annoyance is being unable to remove the motherboard from the back. It's not a huge deal but it can be a pain if you have to replace it!

Other Thoughts: I think it's the perfect case for the money. Well worth the investment. Don't buy it if you're looking for something other than functional. Sorry no annoying LEDs!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Nice simple, robust server case with a practical layout at a decent price. Hard drive cage removable from the front of the server (if you leave enough slack in the cables). Package contains adapter to install floppy in CD slot which is nice.

Cons: Minor quibbles: insulating grommets & special screws for hard drives don't work as the design is faulty - hard drives end up bolted in tight. Front fan is 3 pin while rear is 4 pin!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Heavy server Case

Pros: Solid Heavy construction. features make adding or changing hard drives/fans easy.

Cons: heavy (yes, I know this is in my pros too).

Other Thoughts: If you want to install a lot of hard drives in your server this is not the case but a good overall server case for the money.
