Thread: Where should I buy Antec/Chieftec/Chenming Full Tower Case?




  1. #1

    I really like the Antec cases and the clones of Antec cases that are popular right now. They are also produced under the name Chieftec, Chenming, and Enermax. I want the version pictured here. I want the exact grill in the picture, along with the lack of door and standard color. I have found the following product numbers for the different brands that carry this case model:

    Antec - SX1240
    Chenming - ATX-901A
    Chieftec - DA-01W

    Does an Enermax clone exist for this model? Do any of you know if this case is marketed under a different brand name? If so, what is the serial number for that brand name’s version? Having the product number really helps the searching process.

    Finally, any recommendations on where can I find one of these at a reasonable price?

    For decent prices on Antec enclosures, I have always had good luck with www.directron.com

    I don't recall offhand if they deal in your other choices, but they do carry pretty much a full line of Antec. :)

    The Antec clones (like Chieftec) are more popular doors on them. They are pretty much cheap plastic ones, so if you can find one with a door that is cheaper than one without, you might as well just buy it then rip the door off. However, I recently got a Thermaltake Xaser 5000 and the door really makes it look a lot better than the original design (it's a well-crafted multi-color steel door). But, you seem to have it all figured out so I'd say go with a door and then rip it off (especially if you find out the case looks retarded with beige drives, that is if you don't spraypaint them).

    But then it looks horrible. No offense to those who like doors, but in my opinion, a door case with no door looks so ugly, with the drive rail figer spots visible, and the remaining part of the door hinge, and then the spot where the door should be meeting the bottom of the case... All that = ugly.

    But we are in luck as many models are made without doors, and still have the wonderful use of the completely hidden drive rails.
