Xigmatek have a new weapon ready for battle in the highly competitive mid tower chassis market; the MIDGARD II. The new case gets the all-black treatment inside and out and gives support for mini-ITX, micro-ATX and full sized ATX motherboards.
Measuring 221 (W) x 473 (H) x 488 (D) mm and weighing in at 7.18Kg, the case sports a soft and elegant "leather-coating" on both the top and front panels and provides three external 5.25" drive bays with tool-free holders along with an additional Slim-ODD bay. The I/O panel positioned on top of the MIDGARD II gives 1x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports and audio ports. Further to this is a built-in docking station on top that supports both 2.5 and 3.5-inch SATA based drives.
Internally there are six drive bays that will accommodate both 2.5 and 3.5-inch sized drives and provide anti-vibration rubber. Xigmatek has made sure to consider those using water cooling and includes four holes to route your tubing at the rear of the chassis.
The MIDGARD II's cooling system comprises a 3-channel Mono Cool fan controller with allocated areas for up to eight fans in total. Out of the box it comes fitted with two 120mm sized fans, positioned at the front and rear.
Both windowed and non-windowed versions of the case are being offered.
The MIDGARD II is said to start shipping on November 29th. CaseKing.de now has it on pre-order for 69.90.
