15 Case Power Tower Round-Up


  • Sturdy case
  • Removable trim plates
  • HDD carriage rotated by 90 degrees
  • Plenty of room for hard drives and 5.25" drives
  • All drives have rails with vibration absorption
  • Screws neatly stored in case interior
  • No sharp edges


  • Weight
  • Little space left when cabling hard drives
  • No room for PCI long cards

In the Chieftec case, the expansion cards are held in place with a card clipper.

In sum, Chieftec's BX series is setting standards in construction and design. Our one small gripe: a little more room in the hard-drive area would not hurt the case at all.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
