XIGMATEK unveiled the Spirit entry-level ATX mid-tower case, and it micro-ATX variant, the Spirit-M. Measuring 500 mm x 513 mm x 195 mm (DxHxW), the case is designed for performance gaming PC builds with liquid-cooled CPUs. Its motherboard tray can hold CPU coolers as tall as 160 mm, and graphics cards as long as 320 mm. Drive bays include three 5.25-inch, and four each of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch. Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intakes, a 120 mm rear exhaust, two 140 mm top exhausts, and two 140 mm side intakes. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The Sprit-M, on the other hand, measures 410 mm x 362 mm x 180 mm, featuring just one 5.25-inch drive bay, three 3.5-inch/2.5-inch bays, and surprisingly, a similar cooling system to its bigger sibling. What's more, it supports even longer graphics cards than the Spirit does, at 370 mm.
