Looks like an interesting SR-2 case however wow, that is a completely and utterly horrible review. The guy doesn't seem to know what the hell he's talking about half the time, its like he's reading the box specs.

I gree with Rison, it needs to be around 200 $ for me to be interested. We will see once it really come out. CM had one at another expo and it never came out.

I'm definitely interested in this case.

The cooling of it alone plus the hard drive space makes this a real nice case for many different applications.

Many reviews popping up over the past week for the Elysium - all of which have been highly positive so far. Here are a few:

Wow I have had an 800D for about 3 weeks and now I want a new case lol.

This looks to be a winner if you have the room for it!

Looking good. Makes me want to "sell" my A77Fs so I can finally have a proper chassis for my fat girls.

Pricing and date availibility in europe :

Caseking.de - Online-Shop für Modding, Gaming, Gehäuse, Kühler und Hardware Zubehör

and Guru US pricing :

Quote:
The Xigmatek Elysium is slated to go for $199 US. There aren't to many cases to compare this beast against. The Lian-Li PC-V2120 series of cases also support the HPTX form factor, and range anywhere from $399 to $429. Cubitek HPTX Tank is another offering available which goes for roughly $310. Custom designers like Mountain Mods, and Danger Den have also made alterations to support the HPTX platform yet they are in that upper price range as well. I'm going to have to give them a 10 here
If this is true, count me in......

French shop :

Xigmatek Elysium - Boîtier PC - Achat / vente pas cher sur materiel.net

170 Euros

another french review, saying it is going to be here in a month or so.

Shit son. For $200 I'll buy this, even if my regular mainboard will look like a hotdog near Pereniums mom.

Looks like I'm redoing my water loop again.

Not sure I like this case.

Two months ago I was saying the opposite.
