View Full Version : Chieftec DA- 01SLD or Lian Li PC70

Both so tempting. I'm not really a big fan of the swinging door on the Cheiftec, but it is about $100 cheaper. I don't really care much for that "giant heatsink" idea of aluminum cases. The bebefits are probably negligible. Anyone know of a steel mock PC70? I'll probably upgrade my case within the year
I've got the Antec SX1030 which is the same as the Chieftech and I absolutely love it. The door really isn't that annoying and it is removeable if you don't want it there.
I'll be getting another for sure whenever the need for a new case arises.
The LianLi are nice too but I could just never see myself spending that much on a case.

I would get the Chieftech. I like them. And they are very well made. That "big heatsink" thing was created by people with absolutely no common sense. And the gains ARE negligible. Most give people better temps because of a good design. And youll get that with the Chieftech.
Let me know where you are looking to buy, I'm interested in picking up one for a project. I'm always on the look out for the lowest price or the best retailer.

I was looking specifically for a silver one since beige is getting a bit boring. The only place I've personally seen them is here (http://www.isitoday.com/chieftec.htm). They're not on resellerratings.com so I'll have to consider that. It's also more expensive than a SX1030 ($111 without PS)
