Chieftec teases the CI-02B-OP, a new micro-ATX cubish-shaped case that will start shipping in February. This all-black model has some brushed aluminium parts and just like the CI-01B-OP it feature a fold-open design. Curious to see that Chieftec still includes a 3.5" floppy mount. The case measures 390mm x 265mm x 295mm and weighs 4.3kg. The pricing is unknown.
Today CHIEFTEC introduces a new multifunctional cube case that can find its purpose in all settings from the office to home media systems. Featuring an elegant design combining brushed aluminium and airflow-friendly mesh, this is a case that combines a timeless style with high functionality.

The CI-02B-OP joins CHIEFTEC’s Mesh Series in a compact m-ATX cube format. Despite its very compact dimensions, this case is extremely flexible in terms of hardware compatibility, supporting ATX PSU’s up to 16 cm in length, graphics cards up to 320 mm in length, and CPU coolers up to 160 mm in height. Furthermore, the installation of components is made very easy thanks to the folding mechanism known from the CI-01B-OP.

Additionally, with lots of flexibility on the internal and external drives, supporting 5.25? and 3.5? optical drives, 2x 3.5? HDD’s and 3x 2.5? SSD’s, the CI-02B-OP is also very suitable for home entertainment purposes or as a mini server.
