Casebuy has recently sent us a few goodies to look at. Last month
I reviewed the EZ Power Supply tester and this month I get to look at
one of their new cases, the 6811-BB-2500. Not really a catchy
name, but who buys a case because of the name? You normally buy a
case because of its form and function. Casebuy as delivered a
fully ATX compatible case that is a little shorter than normal.
They were able to accomplish this by relocating the power supply to the
bottom, front of the case. Let's take a look at it and see how
that works out.
The first thing that jumps
out at you is the huge fan on the side panel. Since the power
supply can't help exhaust heat, because of its location, this huge 25cm
fan is going to help cool things down.
Drive Bays: 5.25”*3/ 3.5*1 /HDD*2
Main Board size : ATX/ MICRO ATX
Power Supply :ATX PS2
Cooling system :Front: 8cm x 1,Rear: 8cm*2，Left Side: 12cm*2 or 25cm *1
Packing size : 410*220*535 mm
Net/Gross Weight W/O PSU 4.75kg / 5.6 kg
N.W:6.30kgs / G.W7.30kgs
Container loaded :
20”/40”/40”HQ= 580 / 1170 / 1410 PCS (1.71 CUFT)
The case has a very high
shine finish. It has a fairly standard 3, 5 1/4 drive bay layout,
with 1, 3 1/2" external bay. One of the nice features is the fan
filter on the bottom half of the case. The filter is removable so
you can keep it clean.
The top two bays have
spring-loaded doors. This gives the case a clean look. The
door is propped open for the above photo. Normally, it's
spring-loaded to stay closed.
Finishing out the front is
the USB ports and front audio ports. A nice little detail here is
the ports have a slight upward angle to them. If the case is on
the floor this makes plugging your USB devices in just a little bit
