It's been a while since we've heard something from Chieftec, but Hexus received some images of the firm's upcoming L-type chassis. This new case is L-shaped and allows you to mount a 19-24" LCD display to its front.
The L-type can house ATX or mATX motherboards, has room for seven PCI slots, three 3.5in hard-disk drives, and a single 5.25in optical-drive bay. It measures 255mm x 370mm x 418mm, weighs 6kg, and features a front-facing rail that allows a mounted flatscreen monitor to be height adjusted.
Speaking of the monitor, CHIEFTEC tells us that any flatscreen display measuring 19in to 24in can be mounted via a standard VESA mount. Cooling comes courtesy of a 120mm 800rpm exhaust fan, along with air holes to the sides and rear.
