XIGMATEK Aquarius Plus is a Broad Mid-tower Case with Glasshouse on Two Sides

XIGMATEK today rolled out the Aquarius Plus, a "plus-sized" mid-tower that's vertically partitioned a la Corsair Carbide Air 540. The narrower right-side partition holds the PSU bay and a two each of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays, while the left-side partition holds a motherboard tray with room for graphics cards up to 36 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16 cm in height. Tempered glass makes up not just the left side panel, but also the front. The two glass panels are contiguous at the case's front-left corner. The case comes in two variants based on the color of the sheet metal - matte black and white.

The XIGMATEK Aquarius Plus has a staggering ten 120 mm fan mounts, three along the motherboard tray towards the front, which guide air out through the right-side chamber and out of vents along the right side panel; three bottom intakes, three top exhausts (with a dust filter), and a rear exhaust. You can hence mount up to three 360 mm x 120 mm radiators. XIGMATEK appears to be including seven RGB LED-illuminated 120 mm fans with this case. Front panel connectivity is located along the top, and includes two USB 3.1 type-A ports, one USB 2.0/1.1 port, and HDA jacks. The case measures 415 mm x 280 mm x 427 mm (LxWxH). The company didn't reveal pricing.

I'm surprised this hasn't been done until now, I don't recall ever seeing this design. A chunker for sure, but I have room for it if the price is right, sadly it prob will be too expensive :D

so if the price is correct $499 to AUS is $731... I will never spend more than $450 for a gaming rig
That why AMD CPU is doing the right job at the moment in my opinion .
ummm I think you posted this in the wrong thread, this case has no price...

well hopefully this one is much cheaper than that one, good chance it will be since it's an off brand.

I thought he was German? If he is Austrian he should apply for a job to Noctua, probably instant hire. :D

Wait, i totally thought that was sarcastic and cooperated in the bait. I feel betrayed.

Here's another joke.

me: Mom! i want a Lian Li O11D case!
mom: We have one at home
What we have at home:

What a lame PC-O11 ripoff. Well at least, this comes bundled with fans.

The PC-O11 Dynamic is around $130 isn't it? Cheap for a quality case imo.

As in lawsuits from Lian Li & ThermalTake (P-series).....

Do they really think they could do such a blatant design rip-off & get away with it ?

considering how many pc cases are pretty much exactly the same....yes I think they can.
What could possible be patented here?

Actually, the pco11 has a corner support in the front right corner of the case, the xigmatek does not which gives the tempered glass panel a floating aesthetic... It's a subtle difference, but in my opinion, it makes this xigmatek case look better than the pco11

I agree. I have the dynamic and the "support beam" cock blocks my eyes from seeing the whole beauty of my system on my desk.
