GIGABYTE Announces the Xtreme Gaming XC700W Chassis

GIGABYTE today announced the Xtreme Gaming XC700W chassis. This ATX full-tower case measures 593.5 mm x 240.5 mm x 546.6 mm (DxWxH), and is made of SECC steel, aluminium, and tempered glass. Its design consists of a steel framework that holds on to a tempered glass panel on the left side, and an aluminium panel that covers the front and right side panels of the case. It features RGB multi-color LED lighting forming accents along the edges of the aluminium panel, the front case badge, and a prominent "Xtreme Gaming" logo along the side panel.

Inside, the case isn't compartmentalized, although the drive cages are detachable to free up more room. The motherboard tray can hold ATX and EATX motherboards, with up to 8 expansion slots. You get room for add-on cards as long as 430 mm, and CPU coolers as tall as 170 mm. There are no 5.25-inch bays, but you get a drive cage with three 3.5-inch bays (convertible to 2.5-inch), and three 2.5-inch mounts behind the motherboard tray. Ventilation includes a 140 mm rear exhaust, and 3x 120 mm top exhausts (convertible to 2x 140 mm). Front panel connectivity includes two each of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports; and HDA audio jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.

So room for a single 360 rad (perhaps 140 at back but that looks tight)? Looks like fan space at bottom maybe?

seems a bit short for a full case but 10 inch wide is good.

those pics dont tell much and actually make it look smaller.

Would be a nice looking case if it wasn't for that Xtreme Gaming badging on the front and side. Overall it looks good enough.

no slot for fan controllers
You can always add simple PCI bracket based fan control.

There's always something like an NZXT Grid+ that can be used instead. But yea, not ideal for everyone though.

Just thinking the same thing...I kinda like the modern look, but the logos are a bit much. :/

You mean XTREME GAMING. It's a unique and great looking case if it didn't have that. Now it's just for 16 year olds with mom and dad's money.

no matter how good this case is I'd never buy a case with XTREME GAMING logo on the side.

Maybe for a USB headset connection? Other than that, I can't think of any reason to put 2.0 ports on the front of the machine (a pair on the back are handy for the keyboard and mouse).

why the XTREME GAMING on the side? Looks like they lifted the design from a 90's wakeboard.
