    Default Xigmatek Elysium



    Xigmatek did an astonishing job with this chassis. Priced at $219 in USA (PKR 14,000 in Pakistan), It’s the most affordable HPTX-supported case on the market right now. Being affordable doesn’t mean that you’ll have to compromise on functionality or quality, everything is top-notch.

    Two CPU retention holes, USB 3.0 connectors and little PCBs for powering up to 10 fans; all the features make this chassis perfect for any kind of build.

    This case is idyllic for both air-cooled and water-cooled rigs. Up to eight 140mm & one 200mm fans can be installed, in case you are going for water cooling then you can install a 420mm radiator on top and 240mm radiator on bottom. I am pretty much sure a 420mm radiator can be mounted in front 5.25” drive bays with a little bit of modding.

    Cable management holes with plastic grommets are another plus for this case. These holes are present all over the motherboard tray which makes cable management a really easy task.
    Build quality of this case is second to none. All the panels are quite sturdy and well built. Front Aluminum strips add a nice touch to overall looks of the case.

    Xigmatek Elysium is absolutely worth the money; in fact it gives you much more. It snatches away our ‘TOP PICK’ award.

    That case does hold a lot of potential, especially for modders. But I'm starting to get pretty tired of a box with a flash face on it. We need these large manufactures to make something the matches the flashiness of the fronts with the rest of the case. IMHO, I think the case is pretty ugly.

    It's an old idea, originally used by Ultra. Lots of case manufacturers have copied parts of the idea, but none have yet gone the whole way.

    I haven't seen it before. It would help out while trying to route cables around in a case.

    It's a little ugly to me, but I love all the features and flexibility. Reminds me of that girl in just about every high school who wasn't that attractive but could really . . . . Well, you get the idea.

    Those review photos are excellent Doc.

    If I was into steel, I'd much rather have the Elysium than an overpriced 800D.
