Chenbro SR-205 Junior Server Case Review
This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.This is a review of the Chenbro SR-205 Junior Series Case designed to handle Dual Athlon motherboards. This case is designed to support the size of large motherboards while still giving them more than ample cooling. Without going into detail now, I was blown away at the temperatures under load of my newly installed Athlon™ XP system into this case. For those looking for a good case for a server with plenty of cooling, this may just be the one for you.
Chenbro was founded in 1983 and in 1984 started selling their first PC cases in Baby AT format. 1986 they introduced the world’s first Tower PC Case and by 1988 they started selling their first server case. Today we introduce the SR-205 Junior Series Server Case.
