    I think Aria have some of those. Im going to probably get the one with the large triangular shaped holes in the fron bezel for my little server. They look best for ventilation.

    Ooh I like the look of them. The colour schemes are good and they've finally made some cases that I'd be happy with the looks of in the long term. Their cases have always been good but just never had that "je ne c'est quoi" that made them really desirable looking.

    Very nice IMHO. I really like the silver and black ones. I can see me getting one of those for my second system, if the price is right.

    Some interesting new additions to chieftecs range of case features


    Built in dust filter, increases heat but the scorpio and dragon style cases filled up with dust


    Spring design to help reduce vibration from drives


    90mm fan to cool HDDs


    USB2, audio and Firewire


    The panels are interchangeable by the looks of things

    Compared to my current case my Scorpio filled itself with fluff and dust. They have great airflow but put them near the floor with all 4 main fans going and they suck in a lot of debris

    I like it!! I like it a lot!! I just love the drive mount solution using just screws. There're excellent ideas throughout the case and the whole package is just so well presented. I'll be looking at one of these when I get a new enclosure for my server boxen... The only question I've is regarding their dimensions...

    BTW, do anyone knows who stocks them in the UK?

    [EDIT: I found some units available in Overclock.co.uk for pre-order... [/EDIT]

    Anyone wanna see if they can answer a question thats been niggling me ??

    Are Chieftec cases modified Antec cases or are Antec cases modified Chieftec cases or is it just a coincidence that they are identical internernally and almost identical on the outside ??

    Neither... Both Chieftec and Antec get the majority of their enclosures from a Taiwan-based case manufacturer (can't immediately remember the name...) and use them as their own.
