Spring Case Madness: 24 Of The Best

Chenming ATX-301K

The ATX-301K by Chenming.

The Chenming ATX301K can be best described as a dash of old school with a dash of new school ideas thrown in and mixed together. While this case might look like a throw back to the cases of old, it is obvious that they have updated this design to support the higher speed CPUs with greater thermal requirements.

At first glance, it is obvious that this case shares a lot of the same design characteristics as the Antec Lanboy, but it looks like Chenming made a few changes to bring the price a little more in line, not to mention the fact that this is made of 0.8mm gage SECC rather than the aluminum found in the Lanboy.
