    I've just finished (well, all but the side panels) my cube and crammed all my hardware inside it and tried to carry it upstairs, but it weighs an absolute ton! So I weighed it on the trusty bathroom scales and its 24KG! No wonder my arms ache.

    24kg isn't that suprising considering you have a YY Cube which are heavy things before you put anything in them.

    My computer is far too heavy, 5hrs on a train to Scotland with it proved that.

    Suprisingly heavy considering the case is almost entirely aluminium. Having said that I don't have cause to pick it up all that often.

    Good grief you guys have heavy computers; my Silverstone TJ05 weighs in at 36 pounds plus the weight of the elctronics; Id guess its about 40 pounds, or 18 kilograms (Or 179 newtons to keep things as measures of weight :D)

    Newtons would be a measure of mass would it not, and lb's and kg's would be weight. :D

    Kilograms is a measure of Mass; Newtons is a measure of force, like pounds ;)

    Another chieftec full tower owner (lovely blue matrix)
    Its so damn heavy. Struggled getting it up here empty, its now got a hefty PSU, opticals, heatsink etc in... weighs a tonne :(
    Previous chieftec dragon (ally) was so much lighter, lovely case tbh. Pitty it had to be sold.

    pretty heavy, YY cube, the cooling alone probably weighs quite a bit (NV68, 1250, 120.2, SS-TDX, 4x papst 4412), ive peared it just down to just the scsi drives recently though, with the other drives in a server, was even heavier before that (6 hdds)

    nfi about an exact weight though, dont have a scale

    Mine weighs a ton, I kid you not. :p

    Seriously though - it's a steel GW802 with as much hardware as i can actually fit into it. :)

    i haven't wieghed mine properly but i would guess its about 15-18KG cause i got a Theramltake Tsunami dreams case so it completely aluminium and they say it wieghs 6kg when empty but i don't believe them cause i can pick it up with my little finger so so i think its closer to 4-5KG then i stripped some unessacary fan grills and I/O ports then added my equipment (the heaviest being the PSU which wieghed more than the case [about double]). so i would think 15-18KG is reasonable for it.

    My comps is a lightweight its only round 16 kg. I have no idea what kind of case it is some pre-mod I got for cheap. My next case however i'm glad is not going on holiday with me as it is goin to be all plexi and copper, lots of cooper.

    Another owner of a Chieftec full server here. Carbon black (slightly grey) matrix version. I put wheels on mine, but I have a piece of steel spacing out the wheels so it isnt top heavy. But with and intake box, where I will add sound insulation in the future, and a "muffler" which still lacks sound insulation, it is even heavier. Its definitely heavy... 50-60 lbs I think, maybe more. Never can get a good reading on it. All I know is, that on a smooth floor, I can sit on top of it, and scoot around on it because of the castors. :hehe:
