Chieftec Front USB Ports Mod Guide

Chieftec Front USB Ports Mod Guide news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Virtual-Hideout has a new mod guide for you today and this time, they installed a USB Extension Bracket into the front bezel of the ever popular Antec/Chenming/Chieftec/etc case.

I guess it's no secret by now that the Chieftec/Antec/Chenming mid tower case is my current favourite case. I think it's the same with Diceman too with the amount of mod projects/reviews that you see around here revolving around the case. It's not only it looks, but the features that attracts me and Dice to the case. Lot's of room, a well-thought out and balanced cooling system is just among the many features of the case that we love. But one thing that is missing from the case is front USB ports. Antec answered that shortcoming with their new line of Performance Plus cases, but it's just not at the right place. Rather awkward positioning and it kinda interferes with the overall front bezel look. But that's just me I guess. :O) But what if you're like me? Prefering the old Antec/Chieftec look but still want those front USB ports? Mod one into the case! That what! So here is the guide for you "old-skool" Antec/Chieftec lovers. Like all custom mod projects, this one requires some degree of planning and also patience. Heheh! So if you screw things up, don't look at me!
