I stopped by the Chieftec booth at the Target Open Day 2014 and they’ve certainly got a few things on their booth that grabbed my attention. First of all are their chassis products, while they’re not the latest and greatest from the company, they’re the first products to mark the return of Chieftec to the UK market after several years absence.
Most notable is their DX-02B, which we reviewed recently.
Then we have their mini-ITX form factor HTPC style chassis. I failed to catch the model number, but Chieftec have agreed to ship us a review sample, so keep your eyes peeled for an in-depth look at this in the very near future.
One of the best products that Chieftec have (if not the best), is their 500w SFX PSU. There are a few other companies touting similar models, but so far Chieftec are the only ones available to buy at retail. With all that power in such a small form factor, as well as an 80PLUS Gold rating, this could be a huge product for the company.
Chassis, PSUs and more are obviously of keen interest to the crowd, but when you’ve got a barrel of beer that pumps through a custom pump made from two power supplies, then you’re easily going to be host to a popular booth.
Thank you Roger from Chieftec for allowing me to review the performance of this unique beer pump. I may have sampled a couple of the beers too!
That’s all from the Chieftec booth for now, but I’ll be back shortly with even more coverage from the event.
