    We also dropped by the Chieftec booth and they have some nice enclosures on display. The most interesting one is the ITX case with large heatsinks on both sides, which are attached to heatpipes. These in turn cool the CPU and chipset of an Atom ION board. Due to the inability to accommodate the different board layouts, Chieftec will be offering these cases to OEMs who will then also receive a custom cooling solution to fit the mainboard they are using. The case also features a Soundgraph VFD and slot for a slim-line optical drive. We were also witness to a computer case which dispenses beer when needed. What else could you ask for?

    Besides that, they have their newest PSU line-up at CeBIT, along with the final version of another very compact ITX chassis. We already covered the latter at a previous show, but it was not ready for retail back then. Last, but not least, Chieftec is also adding USB 3.0 enclosures to their line-up.

    Beer Dispensing Case - Every PC built in America should have this option and the case needs to be connected to our choice of Brewery (mandatory) :D

    You have to look at the dispensing case though and see the bad side, as in there is going to be a steady rise in drunk players in many games getting banned and doing to most retarded and annoying things in online gaming history ever thought of.

    Just imagine 25% of the gaming community getting banned from every game they play:laugh:



    It might make the game creators using the bear dispensing case port there console titles worse and make shittier games then they already make, and we would be happy if there was textures on most everything on a map :roll:


    Also i think AA(Alcoholics Anonymous) Will be striking against PC's saying there the cause for many addictions after a day its released.

    But we will see :).
