Chieftec Aegis CX-05B-B 11-Bay Steel ATX Mid Tower Case Review


Overall the Aegis is a nice case. It supplies a lot of nice features for a retail price of $73.99 at While this isn’t a high quality case, you can certainly tell it’s a sturdy one. It has a bunch of features built into this case that are unique from other brands, some good, and some bad. I’m not sure exactly what the requirements between a Mid Tower and a Full Tower case are, but my first and final glances at this case are that it’s a full tower case.

The only thing I really didn’t like about this case was that it didn’t include any fans. Now a day’s people like to buy cases with fans already built into them to save time and money, but if you don’t mind the fact of having to install your own fans then I’d say give the Aegis a look. Overall ThinkComputers awards the Chieftec Aegis 11-Bay Steel ATX Mid Tower Case an 8 out of 10 score.
