XIGMATEK Unveils the ZEUS Spectrum Edition Open Tower Chassis

XIGMATEK unveiled the ZEUS, a premium open-air tower-type chassis. The case consists of a highly adaptable metal frame clad with tempered glass panels on three sides, and detachable panels on nearly all sides. This has the makings of a new trend with PC cases where towers aren't cuboidal, and have a somewhat trapezoid or poligonal shape that orients the motherboard tray at an angle, so it receives active air-flow from more directions. Alienware likely started this trend with its 2017 Area 51 desktop, which Jonsbo copied with its TR03 from earlier this week. The XIGMATEK ZEUS has room for a standard ATX (or smaller) motherboard, room for graphics cards up to 32 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16 cm in height.

Storage options on the XIGMATEK ZEUS include two 2.5-inch drive bays just below the top panel, one 3.5-inch and one 2.5-inch drive mounts behind the motherboard tray. Cooling options include three 120 mm front intakes that can hold onto a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator, three 120 mm top exhausts that can hold onto another 360 mm x 120 mm radiator, a 120 mm exhaust on the upward-facing rear panel, and another 120 mm exhaust on the downward facing rear panel. Front panel connectivity includes two USB 3.1 type-A ports, and separate headphones/mic jacks. The case measures 755 mm x 220 mm x 595 mm (LxWxH). The company didn't reveal pricing.

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.

XIGMATEK Releases Poseidon RGB Mid-tower Case

XIGMATEK today released the Poseidon RGB (model: EN42272), an ATX mid-tower case that combines two tempered glass panels with a lavish use of RGB LED elements. The front and left-side panels of this case are tinted tempered glass panels. The front panel is accented by a vertical RGB LED strip running along the right side. XIGMATEK is including four 120 mm RGB LED fans with the case, three of these come pre-installed along the front intakes, and one as the case's sole rear exhaust. The fans and embedded LED strip feature 3-pin addressable-RGB inputs. An included 4-channel RGB LED controller drives the four, which features a tiny RF remote control that lets you cycle between presets and toggle individual lighting. The same controller doubles up as a 4-channel PWM fan-controller, which takes inputs from the remote. There is a significantly cheaper variant of this case (model: EN42265), which lacks the fans and combi-controller.

The XIGMATEK Poseidon features a conventional horizontally-partitioned case layout, with the upper compartment holding the motherboard tray that suopports ATX (and smaller) form-factors, while the bottom compartment holds a double of drive bays and the PSU bay. The case can take add-on cards up to 36 cm in length, CPU coolers up to 16.5 cm in height, and PSUs up to 17 cm in length. Storage areas include four 2.5-inch mounts, and two 3.5-inch/2.5-inch trays. Besides the three 120 mm intakes and one 120 mm rear exhaust, the case features two 120 mm top exhausts with a detachable dust filter. The case measures 400 mm x 205 mm x 450 mm (LxWxH). Front panel connectivity includes two each of USB 3.x type-A, and USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and HDA jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.

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.
