Xigmatek is currently preparing the introduction of Talon, the first PC case in the company's new, Stealth Series offering. The Talon is a mid-tower chassis which features a rubber coating on its top and front panels, support for ATX, micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards, three 5.25-inch and eight 3.5-inch bays (five 3.5-inch trays can be used to hold 2.5-inch drives), two top-placed USB 3.0 ports, and a side window.

Xigmatek's case also has two pre-installed fans - a 200 mm model in front and a 140 mm spinner at the rear, and can house graphics cards up to 330 mm long. The Talon's price tag is not yet known.

Go home case, you are drunk. You're not even level.

It's a weird design choice, I'm hoping you can take the bottom feet off to make it level again? Or maybe they'll provide another set of feet. Usually quite a fan of Xigmatek stuff but not in this case. (see what I did there? I'm on a roll)

Yeah at first I thought it was some kind of visual effects for the picture itself. :wtf: Why did they do this???

Attach wheels to this case and you will see why they made it slanted - extra downforce for turning those tight benchmarking corners of course ;)

Case looks pretty good, except for the whole slant going on. If you can remove the bottom and it has a decent price point it could be a nice budget case.

Standard Greek stuff, in this case a giant. You should be able to tell from Xigmatek's naming scheme

Pfft the case is just posing for the photo shoot :p

I just hope Xigmatek designed this case so the bottom can be taken off. I really wouldn't want my HDDs stacked at that angle as someone else said. Along with it looking damn weird as the rest of the case, imo, hasn't changed angles like the bottom side has.
