Finally the Elysium is here, the question on all of our lips is have Xigmatek managed to make the perfect case on a budget?

I like this case and the price is shocking, in a good way that is. I was expecting it to be at least £200.

Even if they don't change the design so you can get the 240 rad in at the bottom by moving it inside the HDD bays a couple of holes with a drill will be a easy job. The hole for the second CPU for the SR2 boards shouldn't be too hard to cover up with a bit of rubber or plastic either, the only thing that can't be done yourself is the window mod but hopefully Xigmatek will sort that out.

Nice one TTL.

Awesome case, bit too big for me though. Pity Xigmatek did not learn from the “UTGARD” (they upgraded that with a window side panel)

Still that said I will by looking foreward to see what you can do with this case.

Holy EFFF 42 minutes That's a hell of a lot, even for you, Tom. Not that it matters much, you still keep us all entertained.

Great Review, one thing you didn't mention in the video, for the USB3 Front Panel, does it have the option of using the new front panel headers or do you have to use one of the 7 grommets at the back and plug it into your motherboard that way.

I wasnt a fan of big cases before this. After watching your review Tom I think I will be picking one of these too replace my utgard and putting a 360 & 240 rad in it but dont really fancy modding the floor panel too fit it as aint ever done that before
