    Chieftec BX

    Chieftec cases have always been popular and there’s a reason why. They are superb cases. Some people maybe put off by the size of it, but it’s lovely to work inside of it. There is plenty of space to swing a cat and no sharp edges at all.

    Actually i thought chieftec was good also, but don't like them so much anymore. i've had a DX series for 2 years+ and i have to say my case has always vibrated no matter what i tried, the door vibrates and makes annoying sound, it's steal and heavy and same specs as always. Right now im looking at antec sonata (it's almost absolute quiet if you mod the psu) it has 120 mm fans, which means less noise overall. And HDD's doesn't vibrate the case because you can hang them up somehow

    Cheiftec would make a good stable and roomy server to have alot of HDD's in , but it's no acoustic dream.

    I'm tempted to get this case to replace my Lian-li PC60. But the lack of a removable motherbaord tray puts me off a bit.

    I used to wonder why people were bothered about removable mobo trays... until I upgraded everything in my PC! How I wish I had one now...

    I bought one of these Chieftec BX cases about 6 months ago. Im pretty pleased with it, very roomy (considering i went from a full tower), quieter than my last case. The internal build quality is fantastic, very sturdy. Aesthetical, well its not great but hey a case is a case in my eyes. All depends how deep your pockets are and what you want to do with the case.

    I cant see myself using anything but a coolermaster. Only cases which come close are Thermaltake ones.
