Once again CHIEFTEC was voted one of “the most popular case manufacturers in 2009” by the renowned media platform “PC Games Hardware in Germany.” To keep in the leading position, a new Midi Tower, CH-08B-B, with absolutely convincing features was proudly presented at this year’s CeBIT. This chassis was not only an eye-catcher at our booth but also a great success for the sales.

According to Eddy Shih, General Manager of the German CHIEFTEC branch office, the "CH-08B-B“ is specially dedicated to ambitious gamers as well as to the technically advanced users for server applications due to its generous space it has to offer amongst others.

Clear-cut structures with rounded edges are the essential characteristics of this case in solid black color. The front connectors including Audio, USB and eSATA are ergonomically positioned on the top part of the chassis for easy access and handling.

A bundled 120mm cooling fan positioned right in the lower front part of the chassis is protected by a dust filter and extremely silent. Furthermore you may install two 120mm cooling fans to the top cover and one in the rear to ensure additional and optimal cooling. This way, the airflow is perfectly channelled and maintains a very low temperature in the chassis.

The aforementioned generous space of the chassis enables the installation of three 5.25“ plus one additional 3.5” or 5.25” external bays and six internal 3.5” HDDs respectively.

For more than a decade, Chieftec has been one of the leading companies when it comes to providing innovative and stable mounting solutions for HDDs and ODDs. For this reason, the CH-08B-B is equipped with patented and special-designed ODD clips that allow completely tool-free and absolutely easy installation of ODDs in the chassis.

The CH-08B-B will be available starting in week 15, 2010.
