Chenbro Xpider ("Gaming Bomb") PC61166
The Chenbro PC6166 is called either the 'Xpider' or the 'Gaming Bomb,' depending on the part of the world where you live.
Perhaps the most exciting entry in this Summer Case Review came from Chenbro, a case manufacturer not normally known for cases targeted at the gaming/ enthusiast market. Chenbro is in the process of revamping its current product line to reflect the trends that are occurring in the case industry. The Xpider PC61166 is a result of a tremendous amount of research and development efforts by Chenbro's development team. They have designed a case that is targeted to what gamers and enthusiasts really want in a PC case at a price point that they can afford. Before we cover the Xpider in depth, it is important to note that outside of North America the Xpider is known as the Gaming Bomb. Depending on where you live, you may find this case marketed as either the Xpider or the Gaming Bomb, but Chenbro has reassured us that other than the name difference, the cases are identical. To further reinforce this fact, both the Gaming Bomb and the Xpider carry the same Chenbro model number, PC61166.
