Yeong Yang Cetus Case 

Manufacturer: Yeong Yang
Supplied by: Yeong Yang
Street Price: ~$80

by Brian Tiller (5/5/2004)

Introduction

If you've been an avid follower of computer cases and hardware, then you have doubtless heard of Yeong Yang. The company has been around for quite some time, and offers a wide range of computer cases to fit most any need you might have, from servers and rack mounts, to desktop performance oriented cases. 

I have read reviews of several of their cases from other websites, and have always been intrigued by the name and the designs I've see. But today, thanks to the generosity of Yeong Yang, I have the pleasure of getting my hands on the Cetus Performance Desktop case firsthand. 

Specifications:

  • Construction: Steel w/plastic front bezel

  • Observed weight: 17lbs

  • Observed Dimensions: 19.3"(L) x 7.75"(W) x 17.5"(H)

  • Drive Bays: (4)5.25" exposed w/(1) stealth cover
                    (1)3.5" exposed
                    (5)3.5" hidden

  • Front access ports: (2)USB/FireWire/Audio

  • Cooling: (2)120mm fans (optional)

  • Locking side panel

  • Tool free drive installation

  • AC ducting panels on front bezel

The Cetus case comes in two basic color schemes, black and dark gray. Our review sample is black with silver highlights on the front bezel. While the rest of the case looks typical of desktop cases, the front bezel design and orientation shows the original thinking that went into the design of the case.

Unlike most cases that I've seen, the Cetus has it's front access ports at the top of the bezel, rather than the bottom. This design configuration makes it easier to reach if you place your computer on the floor under a desk.
