In the middle of 2010 I received some concept art from the Xigmatek Rep and was asked to keep the images and information confidential. This information has been very hard to keep quiet, but somehow I managed to achieve the task. If you have purchased a large PC case in the last 12 months, it's time to look for the receipt and try to return it. Your case is weak and you will no longer want it after seeing the Xigmatek Elysium.
The Elysium is that rare product that has a value that far outperforms its price. With a 200 USD MSRP, this review could be published with the price, a specifications / features list and a handful of pictures and no one would complain (other than the competition). It's going to be fairly difficult to keep this article on the Elysium's features and not dedicate eight pages to the price point that is insanely low for what you are getting. While doing my final check in with Xigmatek, I asked them to raise the price to 300 USD and send me the extra 100 Dollars, because I know you would spend that kind of money on what I have to show you today.
The Xigmatek Elysium is a super tower capable of running the largest enthusiast motherboard on the market, the EVGA SR-2. With the SR-2 being able to make a home inside, you will have no problem installing GIGABYTE's Killer product line, a standard ATX motherboard, or if you feel like making some modifications, a pair of motherboards (not officially supported, but I can see some of you TweakTown readers doing so).
Fitting an SR-2 in a case is no easy task. There are very few cases large enough to claim compatibility and many of those cost just as much as the SR-2 itself. Xigmatek didn't just stop at the SR-2, though; they also included enough room to install a large liquid cooling system capable of dissipating the heat from the motherboard, processors and even quad SLI video card configurations that are liquid cooled on a separate loop.
Now that you have the impression of how grand this case is, let's get to the full specification list and dive right in with the pictures.
