Other than the fact it fits an SR-2, I do not like the look of this case. I would have to take a grinder and smooth it out.

Pretty much sums my feelings up exactly. Ya, that it fits an SR-2 stock and is cheap. But it definitely isn't a looker. I'll think I'll continue waiting for;

A.) Somone to sell an 800D for cheap in the BST's.
B.) Lian Li PC-Z70.

The one thing I love about this case is the built in docking station. I think that's brilliant! I agree thought that it isn't exactly a looker though.

Xigmatek Elysium now available at newegg.ca for those who like paying big bucks for shipping:

Newegg.ca - Xigmatek Elysium Silver CCC-HSA0DS-U02 Black / Silver Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case
Newegg.ca - Xigmatek Elysium Black CCC-HSA0DS-U01 All Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case

Judging from the shipping charges, the case must come with a free anvil. Otherwise, pricing is as we had hoped.

Did you look at the PC-Z70 before you ordered?

Sure did, but it wasn't available at that time (only at ppcs) and I wasn't really sure of it's design. I was then left choosing between the PC-P80N and V2120X. I went for the latter because of the black interior and for the fact that the PC-P80N is actually using the PC-A77Fs frame (already had 4 PC-A77Fs) but with 11 expansion slots. I wouldn't have had to make this choice if the Elysium was available at that time though.

I don't regret buying the V2120X, I think it's a good chassis BUT it is also really expensive. The difference in cost would have covered a couple of GPU blocks that I'm planning to get. Oh well, on with the build. I'm mostly moving my only remaining SR2 to a new chassis anyhow.

Greg @ NCIX says they will be getting the Elysium in by around the end of July. Pricing will be in the $240-$250 range, which is a bit disappointing. But at least there will be reasonable shipping options, unlike Newegg.

Just a quick update...

Obviously, the end of July has come and gone and NCIX still has no idea when they'll be getting the Elysium in stock. It's so heavily allocated that it still has yet to make an appearance in any real Canadian channels. (The Newegg stock is from its American warehouses.)

Inside I softly weep.
