Anyone knows the height of the Chieftec HM without feet?

Enclosures and acoustic damping to help quiet them.

Anyone knows the height of the Chieftec HM without feet?

Post by Chaendler » Sun May 23, 2010 4:16 pm

Hi all!

I'm looking for a case that suits my needs for an HTPC (which looks like mission impossible).

My final candidate is the Chieftec HM-02, which based on the Chieftec web is 133mm height. That's 6mm more than what I can fit (127mm), but perhaps taking the feet off could do the trick.

http://www.chieftec.com/hm-02.html

Unfortunately, other websites say that the real height of this case is 150, which overpasses my limits.

That's why I was interested in knowing if anyone of you is a real owner of this case and can measure the height of the case without feet.
Other cases are not an option, as I need the 4 internal bays, and there is no other case with 4 bays and less that 130mm height.

Thank you very much!

When i look at the image of the case the feet are likely more than 5mm high :) Dont have the case myself but google images makes it look like the feet are higher than 5mm.

Hehe, thanks for your opinion!

The problem here is that the info in the web looks like wrong. They state the case is 133 mm high, but don't say whether it is counting the feet on.

On other sites, they state it is 150mm, and hence my doubt :)

Mm, i go and do some research ;) Finding some people with a HM02 on a duthc forum called Tweakers. They will probably measure it for me.

Edit: Not many people in Holland (just 4) have this case. And i cant see who has them :(
