Chieftec shows off L-shaped case

Posted on Wednesday, November 12 2008 @ 01:27:53 CET by

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. Not quite the best cooling system we've seen, but then it probably isn't intended to house a couple of GeForce GTX 280s.
Chieftec is planning to debut this case in January 2009 for around £50. It's basically a DIY all-in-one PC, but I don't think it's going to steal a lot of sales of the real ones. The design is just too odd:
