    The Xigmatek Midgard chassis has been one of the most popular cases in its price class. After almost 3 years, Xigmatek now presents the successor simply called Midgard II. It features a timeless design just like the original one, but includes a long list of new and updated features. The Midgard II has some big shoes to fill - let us see if it manages to impress as much as the original.

    I've been really impressed with the Xigmatek cases and their value for the money. I've been using the Asgard II case in a lot of customer builds recently and for $30-40 it is a huge bang for the buck. I might have to start using the Midgard II once it reaches availability in the US.

    When can we expect e-tailers to carry this? I am so ready to go this route instead of spending my time on a case mod + cost tools on the rocketfish.

    Isn't the external look a bit too Bitfenix Shinobi-ish? Regardless of this case being such great value for money (not that the Shinobi isn't/wasn't).

    Nice looking case. My eyes... my opinion.
    I don't like fancy stuff. It should function how I want.
    Price point is decent, too.
    I would definitely include this as an option for a build.

    Darksaber gets 5 out 5 stars for the review. Outstanding!:toast:
    And, the Xigmatek Midgard 2 gets 4.75 out 5 stars... the reason for the deduction, I like my PSU filter. Just me though.

    Looks a lot like my CM 690 II, too. Which, is good, 'cause I like my 690.:)

    I do have a Midgard I - you can simply turn the PSU around, problem solved!
