Chieftec puts New Faces on Classic Cases

Long respected for its rugged quality, Chieftec has updated parts of its line with trendy design and enhanced features.

Based on the most recent revision of its classic Dragon oversized mid-tower, the Mesh model CX-05SL-B incorporates a split door with front panel buttons and connectors centrally located between upper and lower front panel segments. Gone is the IEEE-1394 FireWire connector, replaced with faster eSATA technology. Inside, the drive cage is updated to the latest screw-less version.

Chieftec also understands what features are important to keep, and continues to use super-duty 1.0mm steel panels.

The Mesh series CH-05SL-B features similar construction with a traditional mid-tower height and full door. Both Mesh series cases are available with either mesh or windowed side panels.
