How good is an Aluminum Chieftec Dragon Case?

I am thinking of buying one for my new PC but not sure weither to get it or not.
In my opinion it's the nicest looking case I've seen and I've heard it's good for modding? and has lots of driver bays?

many thanks for any help you can give me

kind regards

VERY well built, attractive if you like the look, a bit dated IMO though...

if its the full tower, they massive, with plenty of potential for modding and watercooling...

BUT ... the actual design is dated, 80mm fans etc...

so it would need a LOT of work to make it as good as a more recent case...

look at the Lian Li PC7+ IMO :)

As said, they are pretty well built cases, and were popular in their time. Now, with their 80mm fan slots they are becoming a bit dated, but if you want one then dont let it put you off.

Back in the day eh!

Nothing wrong with them, just a bit harder to silence than most cases. Run anything in one just fine and they are built quite well, aluminium dragons I have not used mind.

If you like it, get it; certainly not a case to avoid.

is there like a list somewhere of good cases to mod? so that I can like look at them and see which one I like the look of.

I also like the look of Asus TA-210 Series Midi Tower.

if I was to look for cases second hand, how much off the normal price would I expect to spend?

many thanks for the help

Postage on Cheiftec cases will always be high, very heavy compared to the competition.

Good cases to mod would be the Lian Li PC70 / G70 area, nothing to get in the way and you can do anything to them due to it all being aluminium and removeable.
