Chieftec Unveils BT-02B Mini-ITX Tower Case

Chieftec unveiled its first mini-ITX PC case, the BT-02B. This mini-ITX tower measures 240 x 135 x 295 mm, and weighs 2.85 kg (about 6.28 lbs), and sports a formal look, best suited for space-constrained office desks. It packs enough space for one 5.25" drive bay, an internal 3.5" bay for HDDs, and has a front IO panel with USB and audio ports. The BT-02B comes with a 180W ATX power supply, sufficient for the typical mini-ITX PC. The lone expansion card slot accommodates full-height cards. The case should be out soon.

Looks nice and petite. The front part looks like some extruded heatsink.

That HUGE case for space constrained offices? Not mine. But for those needing a full-size 5.25", full-height video card and a 3.5" drive, not bad. I like the layout.

Its a nice little chassis. It wont support a GTX 295 :laugh:. It's pretty good looking for a tiny tower.

They missed the opportunity to make room for a dual slot video card, and still managed to create a pretty big case. So best choices for mini-itx remain the SG-05 and the SG-06.

I'd like it better if it could go on it's side as well.

This will appeal to D-I-Y NAS builders.

Am I the only one who thinks those insides look odd? Looks like its missing screw holes... And how do you install a 5,25" drive? I cant see any thing for attaching it.

Pre-post EDIT: OK so Mini-ITX has only 4 screws...

This plus 550 X2 and HD 5770... oh boy.
