Xigmatek Midgard Mid-Tower Chassis (Page 1)

Norse mythology isn't lost with Xigmatek, as they aptly name their new mid-tower chassis after the place where Thor and his hammer reside.

Introduction

This is my first look at a chassis from Xigmatek, as they are better known for a strong lineup of cooling products, and as of late, more and more for their PSU's. As with most companies, they are always looking to branch out and find other equitable means of expansion. Xigmatek has gone the way of chassis design and building as a way to start to supply the end user the more completed package. With the manufacturing of cases, Xigmatek offers a total aftermarket line to go from components sitting in a cart online, to a complete build with matching or corresponding themes.

Old Norse Legend and mythological names have been a trend from Xigmatek for some time now. The Thor's Hammer, named after a God and his tool of might to the Bifrost graphics card cooler, named after the bridge that links Asgard with Midgard. It seems only fitting to take a name from a land that was the refuge for Thor and the rest of the known inhabited world at that time. It doesn't take that far of a leap to get the naming scheme of the Midgard chassis name.

Moving past mythological naming, today we are going to have a look at what the Midgard has to offer inside and out. Let's have a look at the specifications and get to searching the web for the best price and see where the Midgard stands amongst the crowd of chassis designers. From what I have seen in other reviews and looking at online retailers, I liked what I saw. Now I get my actual hands on this and see for myself how well it all stacks up to many of the chassis' I have seen.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
