Introduction to the Xigmatek Gigas MATX SFF Cube Case

We have reviewed several Xigmatek coolers over the years since meeting Tony the guy that run every thing there at CES back in 2010, I think. Dates and old ages don’t flow well together. Each of the coolers has performance as well as any within the same category. But for a change we are reviewing our first Xigmatek case. I really did think the first case we review for them would have been the Elysium, which is one of the best full-size tower out right now. Or even, the Adgard with its simplistic goodness.

Nope, it’s the Gigas the smallest case that Xigmatek currently makes. Am I disappointed? Heck No. if you take a look at the Gigas at their website you will see that it is one of the best looking small form factor cases out there. And the feature list is as long as any of the cases boasting the same compact size. So, how could be disappointed with taking the Gigas as the first case sample from Xigmatek.

Xigmatek’s take on the Gigas

The Xigmatek Gigas is an all-aluminum Micro-ATX small form factor chassis with a stylish, brushed aluminum finish in either Silver or Black. From the exterior, the Gigas appears deceptively small for a Micro-ATX case. Inside, the Gigas packs many unique and industry leading performance features. The Gigas chassis houses 2 x 5.25” optical disk drive bays with one bay featuring a custom bezel. Inside, there are two drive cages that can each house 3 x 3.5” and one 2.5” drive for an unheard of 6 x 3.5” + 2 x 2.5” drives. The case is designed to allow for the use of a full-length 320mm graphics card and can accommodate up to a 160mm side blowing cooler. Four 12cm fans, two of each located in the front and rear of the case provide excellent cooling performance to round out this unmatched design.
