Xigmatek Launches Midgard III Gaming PC Case with Qi Wireless Charging Point

Xigmatek launched the first PC case with an integrated Qi wireless charging point, so you can charge your Qi-enabled smartphone by simply placing it on top of the case. Quite a few high-end Android smartphones feature Qi, and for smartphones that don't, wireless charging braces exist. The wireless charging dock draws power from a conventional Molex connector, sipping 5VSB power off the PSU, even when the system is shut down. Measuring 260 mm x 515 mm x 409 mm (WxHxD), the Midgard III is made of SECC steel and ABS, much like its predecessors.

The ATX mid-tower seats conventional ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX motherboards, with cutouts near the CPU socket area, and around the board, for managing your cable spaghetti. The motherboard tray has room for add-on cards as long as 33 cm (even more room with the drive cages detached), and CPU coolers as tall as 16 cm. The case offers three 5.25-inch drive bays, and six 3.5-inch/2.5-inch bays spread across two detachable cages of three bays, each. Its cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a 120 mm rear exhaust, a 120 mm bottom intake, and two 140 mm top exhausts, with enough clearance for a 280 x 140 mm radiator. Front panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports (standard header), two USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and HDA audio jacks. Xigmatek didn't announce pricing or availability.

Does not look like you could fit any fans on that radiator with that clearance.

They are fans but they are in a pull configuration. There is no room for a push set up. There is space between the cover and the case which allows for pull fans.
