You probably would be best off using 3/4" plywood.  Chipboard tends to come
apart whenever stressed.  I'm sure that you will be moving the case around
when it comes time to add & wire in new modules.  For this application,
plywood is stronger and lighter.

Of course, in the old days (70's), 3/4" Walnut (with Danish Oil applied by
hand) was the only way to go!
