The second version of the micro-ATX gaming cube Chieftronic M1 improves Chieftec in an obvious area. The subject of all changes was the cooling performance, which the manufacturer wants to have significantly improved. In addition, the housing can breathe in more freely.
The focus is on the cooling performance
The most visible innovation of the M2 is the redesigned front. Chieftec has retained the “wing design”, but has now taken into account space for a mesh strip that complements the side air inlets. In the M1, these were still solely responsible for the air supply. The front promises to be less restrictive.
The top is also opened. Instead of a glass panel, there is now a mesh grille under which there is space for two 120 mm fans or a 240 mm radiator. Further fans still fit on the front and rear. A total of three 120 mm or 140 mm units can be installed there. In the course of the revision, Chieftec has increased the number of fans supplied from one to three. Your RGB LEDs can be configured using a controller supplied.
