I happen to have an aluminum Chieftec case which mimics an Antec older style.
Yeah, that's an old design from about 10 years ago - Chieftec made I believe, Antec and a bunch of other guys rebranded them and had their own versions.

It's a pretty decent case for its time, but easily eclipsed by modern cases for stuff like cable routing, ease of use, long video card fitment, etc. And most of these cases were built for 80mm fans only.

For $25 it might make a fun project though, but expect some work. Even a $50 case these days has a lot more usable features.
