Chieftec Announces CI-02B-OP: New multifunctional M-ATX Cube Case | TechPowerUp
 
Today CHIEFTEC introduces a new multifunctional cube case that can find its purpose in all settings from the office to home media systems. Featuring an elegant design combining brushed aluminium and airflow-friendly mesh, this is a case that combines a timeless style with high functionality.

The CI-02B-OP joins CHIEFTEC's Mesh Series in a compact m-ATX cube format. Despite its very compact dimensions, this case is extremely flexible in terms of hardware compatibility, supporting ATX PSU's up to 16 cm in length, graphics cards up to 320 mm in length, and CPU coolers up to 160 mm in height. Furthermore, the installation of components is made very easy thanks to the folding mechanism known from the CI-01B-OP.
 
Additionally, with lots of flexibility on the internal and external drives, supporting 5.25" and 3.5" optical drives, 2x 3.5" HDD's and 3x 2.5" SSD's, the CI-02B-OP is also very suitable for home entertainment purposes or as a mini server.

Available: February 2021
 
I believe this case would be great for a home server. 
 



Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X,  M.2 2TB, 128GB DDR4  Crosshair VIII Hero, EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra,  Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF

    Fujitsu and Sony made 3.5" magneto-optical drives but I really doubt they're talking about those lol.

    Almost... very very close. I like the flip design and the passthrough spots for watercooling. But that front looks way too restrictive and the option for a second HDD cage would've been nice.


    Have water, will cool.

    It's nice to see an optical drive bay and I guess the other would be good for a media card reader if someone was serious about photography.
