Chieftec BX  kabinet @ Viperlair

Chieftec BX kabinet @ Viperlair



Chieftec cases are quite common, and with good reason. They may not be perfect but for the price they do provide a quality base for your system. The updates made to the BX series go a long way into providing a quick and easy case to house your system in, appealing to first time buyers for its ease of install, modders for its spacious interior and removable front panelling, users who constantly mess around changing hardware, and those simply looking for a decent case with out having to use up a months rent to pay for it.
It isn't all golden, but many of the issues found here are minor. No removabl motherboard tray; well, we used to do without them but I do feel that this would be a great addition to this case, a continuation of the ease of install theme that runs throughout. There is plenty of room to install a motherboard and installation didn't show any problems, but it still would have been a nice addition. The door doesn't leave a lot of room behind it so if you wanted to install a Rheobus, better make sure it has short dials/switches on it, or you won't be shutting the door properly.
Speaking of a Rheobus, any item you might want to install into one of the 5 ¼ inch drive bays will need to have the industry standard layout for screw holes, since the case will only hold a drive with the 2 rear top screws. I would also have liked to have seen the rear fan holes free of a pressed out design, but rather utilizing a proper grill so as to maximize airflow, which is in all other respects very good indeed. System temperatures are low with this case, hanging around the 23C - 25C mark, which isn't surprising considering the openness of the front and the amount of air intakes available. A lot of the issues are direct side effects from the ease of use design of the case, and despite these problems anyone who has standard installation items for the 5 ¼ inch bays and is looking for a decent case on a budget should give this one a serious look. The case has a lot going for it and its updated interior design from other models make the BX case very easy to work with. Being steel it is heavy so probably not a LAN friendly case but if you just want to house your home system and not move it you'll be fine. I almost gave the case a Viperlair Recommended Award, and indeed I do personally recommend it, but you must make sure you understand the limitations caused by the mounting system of the 5 ¼ inch bays first. If this isn't an issue for you, and the look of the case appeals to you, you will love this case.
