Definitely bigger than I thought as well but it fits a an ATX psu so thats a plug. I do think that they could have made better use of the front panel possibly adding more air flow and movie the harddrive storage to maybe the back panel where the motherboard sits or something

Fair enough, it does make sense that it would be that size to accommodate a ATX PSU (though the case design probably didn't anticipate more SFX units to fill the market).

The small Chieftec case looks pretty nice too, interior-wise. The front looks dated in design and it would have been much better if it was able to fit 2-slot cards but I see potential for modding in the back and side panels.

Honestly, I think with some suggestion they could fix it. I did more research into it and they don't seem to be a computer case company. They're a acrylic company and some of the employees are making cases on the side with their resources lol.

Can I join the Club a third time biggrin.gif ? My Chieftec UNI BT-02B-U3 is arrived today.

I have collected the informations for you, hope this helps you a little bit.
The exact capacity is ~ 9.55L, I rounded it.
Chieftec UNI BT-02B-U3
135 x 295 x 240mm / 9.6L
[m-itx, Single Slot, 250W SFX]
Product Page

1. -Leopold- - Link
There are also versions with 180W SFX (Called Chieftec UNI BT-02B, with slightly different design) and 350W SFX PSUs.

A bunch of pictures in the spoiler
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Mounting place for 2x 60mm-Fans in the back



The place for the 2.5"-HDD is in front of the PSU (where the ventilation holes are)



The "Bridge" aka the Tray for the Optical Disc Drive can be removed - good when you want to use a bigger CPU Cooler.


The 3.5" HDD goes here:


Size Comparsion with a can of Pepsi tongue.gif


Screws for the ODD tray / the PCI-Slot is directly above the PSU - Dual Graphics may cause heat problems when the GPU runs too hot.


Mounting place for the 80mm-Fan is right behind the Frontpanel.


Closer look on the pre-mounted PSU.

So I custom cooled my sub 15L PC here is some pics:

Here is the leak test!


Shot of the side, there will be a window here eventually...


And here is the con!


So unfortunately I had to put the fans on the top as I didn't think far enough ahead to make the CPU>GPU pipe long enough to go around outside the case. So the case was 14.9L, it now takes up around 16.9L (still SFF, just) but I reckon if I get a few more rotaries and tubing it should fit inside the case as I don't want to be without these fans!

Here is the GPU block, such a good deal alphacool have got going here ended up being £60 for a GPU including all mounting hardware and a backplate!


Hope someone is interested!

Do you guys think a 120mm radiator would be enough for a GTX 970 and 4690k at stock clock for light gaming(diablo 3 and cs go)? Thinking about moving one of my rigs into the GEEEK Max I recently purchase but It only fits a 120mm radiator.

Well. The i5 is an 84W chip. The 970 is around 150W IIRC. That's 230-240W total.

AMD ships the Fury X with a single 120mm rad and nothing more. It's around 225-250W and kept at a chill 65 degrees.

So yeah, it should be fine. You might even consider undervolting the CPU. That should free up a few watts. Power consumption goes up by the square of the voltage, so reducing voltage by 10% to 90% stock nets 1 - 0.92 = 1 - 0.81 = 19% power reduction.

65c? Thats hot my i5 3570k @ 4.7Ghz and GTX 770 are in one loop using an expanded swiftech h220. GPU never gets that hot...barely ever breaks 50c. cpu after a good few hours gaming sits hig 50's to low 60's. Thats is a 240mm rad but its cooling both cpu and gpu. theres a thread somwhere where a guy uses a single ( but really thick) 80mm rad

Currently working on a 18L full ATX scratch build if anyone is interested! It was 16L but the zotac 980 ti card was wayyyyy too big.

It's running a delidded 6600k fully overclocked with a raijintek pallas (way too underrated) with no temp problems whatsoever.
The theme of the build is SFF with no compromises with full/over sized components, and the thermal headroom to go HAM with the OC's


that was when it was still 16L, and would fit pretty much any card except the zotac monster and the strix DCU3 (I fitted a windforce in that but didnt take pictures...)

log here: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=293240
do note that my MB is currently on its way to RMA...

Quite nice layout with a single GPU, but did it really have to be that one? I'd rather have seen a less beefy cooler but 16L than the one you chose with 18L. Tastes differ, though, and full ATX SFF rigs are always nice to see. And I guess if you're focused on overclocking, a larger cooler isn't necessarily a bad thing.
