    I'm interested in buying the Chieftec Full Tower Case but would like to know how many fans I'll need to buy with it and their sizes.

    The stock code is LN12449

    Thanks

    Question Chieftec Full Tower chassis E-ATX Mainboard(Enhanced E-ATX, dimensions 32 x 36 CM)

    I am wondering if you or anyone else has completed the build which you were discussing in 2005 using the Chieftech full tower case. I am considering the same and am finding precious little feedback or tech data on these cases, am guessing that Chieftech is out of business. However, there are still quite a few of their cases available.

    I want to use one of the new Supermicro "Enhanced" E-ATX ( aka EE-ATX) mainboards, the dimensions of which are around 32 x 36 CM. (13.5 x 14 inches) and am trying to figure out what cases these might fit into. Supermicro only offers cases with a built in PSU, but I don't want theirs because I have already purchased a high end PSU for this system.

    These certainly appear to be huge cases which should, at minimum, be modifiable to accept these boards. These boards handle up to 128 GB of RAM with 16 dimm slots, which is what I want for a VMware ESX server I am designing. I am also wondering if these cases have a sliding mainboard tray (or any mainboard tray at all).

    Thanks, JKN
