Even though Steiger Dynamics is very new to the chassis building game, when I saw the news of this company and what they were doing, it was almost like love at first sight. Coming from a guy who sees literally a ton of cases, it isn't very often that when I look at something in press images, I am as intrigued with them as I was with this new chassis. Even with flat lifeless images, it was very easy to see that Steiger Dynamics has a great design team, as well as not stopping at any cost to bring you the best of the best, while still delivering an HTPC design that tops every other design out there right now.
Getting a bit more specific, when I looked at this new design, I saw things like a unibody design to offer two things. One of course is a significantly stronger construction, but the second is that it can be used as a passive heatsink for the storage drives that get attached to it. The look of the chassis is sleek and classic, and will make a great addition to any living room, home theater, or even a sleek gaming chassis next to you on a desk.
Steiger also raised the bar with a top panel window that isn't often found, they fully designed this chassis for water coolers to be able to tame almost anything inside, and they even add a ring of LED lighting to accent the build inside of it.
Of course all of this design work, use of high-end materials, and all the little bits and bobs that go into this chassis are going to cost you more than the usual suspects, but then again, I can promise you that you have not seen anything quite like this before. Steiger Dynamics is also building full systems with this chassis, but unlike Maingear and the rest who will re-badge a chassis to fit their needs, this new LEET chassis is not a re-badge, and even with a significant cost to this chassis, I know there are plenty of you out there that would love to add this to your room and enjoy all the benefits of what Steiger Dynamics is delivering.
