Inside the Xigmatek Midgard II
As I opened the box I could hear something inside moving around, but I had to get this far before I could see what happened. The hardware box seems to have broken loose and spilled most of its contents into the chassis. No harm was done; I just had to make sure I found everything, luckily the instructions stayed in the box, so I had a checklist to look at to be certain I had everything.
This is what I mean when I say it's more of a 3+1 system of ODD bays. The three lower bays all have tool-less locks that operate by turning the X to lock and unlock them. The slim ODD bay I will get to later. Also, these tool-less locks are found on both sides of the bays to secure the drives better.
Taking up the bulk of the front of the chassis is the six drive trays for both 2.5" ad 3.5" drives, separated in two three drive sections.
I mentioned earlier that the top one is removable. It just takes a bit of pressure on two tabs and the rack slides right out to take what was 280mm of room and extend it to 330mm. It also exposes the intake fan and allows it to get air flow into the chassis a lot easier.
Inside the top of the chassis you can see there is mounting for both 120mm and 140mm fans there. You also get the hint that there is a lot of room above the steel to install fans and / or a radiator.
By simply lifting the top plastic panel until the clips release and then some jiggling to get the cover off the front I/O exposes the deep area to allow water cooling compatibility enclosed inside the new Midgard II.
