Steiger Dynamics Announces Leet Chassis For DIYers

Steiger Dynamics is releasing a chassis aimed at the ultimate DIYer. It is known as the LEET chassis, the case features an odd design and a number of interesting features. The chassis is made of hand-brushed aluminum and will cost a tremendous $798. Of course, this is backed by some absurdly good build quality. That hand-brushed aluminum we mentioned? It's 5 mm thick.

The case measures 220 x 435 x 390 mm and fits an E-ATX size motherboard. It also has room for one optical drive bay, four 3.5-inch hard drives, and three SSDs. Because of the limited amount of space above the CPU socket, Steiger Dynamics urges users to employ water cooling and the case features support for two mounted radiators. One 240 mm radiator is on the side while another 120 mm radiator is in the back. By doing this, buyers can still fit three dual-slot graphics cards inside the case, although they cannot be longer than 280 mm.

The most notable feature of the case is the touch screen. Yep, the case features a Samsung-made touchscreen dubbed the Soundgraph FingerVU 700M. It has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, and is connected internally via USB 2.0. Diagonally, it measures 7-inches in size.

The chassis is already available for purchase on the Steiger Dynamics website, and it can be adjusted to the user's wishes. Be warned though, the starting price is $798. Adding a top window panel costs $99, while LED lighting costs another $49, and tailored cables cost even more. Users can also choose from a number of power supplies and water cooling kits. Fortunately, choosing between a silver aluminum chassis or a black anodized aluminum chassis doesn't cost extra, nor does choosing a silver or gold Steiger Dynamics logo.
