XIGMATEK Intros the Glaive Mid-tower Case

Xigmatek today introduced the Glaive, a case that hardens its designers' stance on horizontally-compartmentalized layout. Not only is there a solid partition between the two compartments when viewed from the left side, there's also a separate side panel for the bottom compartment, which opens up from the right site. The front side, and the left side-panel covering the upper compartment, are made of 4 mm-thick tempered glass, held together by thumb-screws. Black steel with matte finish make up the bottom compartment cover, the monolithic right side-panel cover, and the top panel, which has front connectivity.

The motherboard tray of the Xigmatek Glaive has room for graphics cards up to 36 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17.5 cm in height. There are slots for three 120 mm front intake fans, although you can only install a 240 mm x 120 mm along it, since the partition stretches all the way till the edge of the bottom fan. The two 140/120 mm exhausts along the top panel come with a detachable dust filter. A rear 120 mm exhaust completes the ventilation. Storage options include two 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drive trays, and two 2.5-inch mounts behind the motherboard tray. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 type-A, and HDA jacks. Expect this case to be priced around $50.

was going to say same thing - looks like another rehash of a same case seen dozens of other times on this site. I am starting to lose track of which brand is which?

Going the way of the auto industry, were every car looks like a Civic.

Nice, three fans that do essentially nothing except provide a nice distraction from what you've built the rig for.
