I just sold my last one yesterday with a system.

They seem to be made in the same factory as Antec cases I have found.
The drive cages, doors and rail slides were interchangeable with the Antec cases that I have.

My guess is this will be as close as you'll get:
Ultra Black Aluminus ATX Full-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB, Firewire and Audio Ports ULT31824 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

Unless you want to pay alot more:
Apevia MX-ALIEN-BK500 MX-Alien ATX Full-Tower Case with 500-Watt Power Supply in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

I don't think Chieftec makes those cases anymore so finding one new will probably be extremely difficult. You'll just have to keep an eye out for used ones I suppose.

I did my very first build in one of these. Awesome case to lot's of extra space. Even had H2O set up in it.

But yes I saw some available on NCIX as well yesterday.

Franky if you are still looking for a Chieftec have I got a deal for you - depending where you are from.

Aluminum Chieftec Gaming Case

EDIT - I see you are from the east coast. Google Top Logix in Saskatoon, they have a brand new one on the shelf but they want $150 or something - I think they will ship it.
