Finally a Chieftec case... i like chieftec. They make quality cases imo. Im gonna buy a Chieftec Aegis CX-05 instead of the Antec 1200 (too expensive for me) for the next build. The CX-05 is almost the same as CH-05. Just a bit bigger etc. (Gonna mod it anyway to get a nice airflow)

I liked the design already when I saw it at the CeBit in March 2008, very nice case IMO :)

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

It seems like these chieftec/chenming/etc cases are becoming less popular.

When I joined OCC nearly every retailer had them, now you can barely find any.

Then again with so much of a push for cases to be as cool as possible and have the best airflow (not a bad thing obviously) it now wonder the el-cheapo cases get left behind...

That being said, it still looks like its a rather decent case...


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
