CaseBuy 6811-BB-2500

     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.

Layout

     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 easier.
