Xigmatek Utgard Case Review
2010 has been a fantastic year for quality chassis design and today we are going to have our first look at a chassis from Xigmatek, a company better known for their coolers and power supplies.
Following with traditional Xigmatek marketing concepts, the Utgard is a product clearly paying homage to Tolkien fantasy roots. The case is a hybrid SECC and steel mesh design allowing for a maximum of 9 fans to be connected.
While the Utgard box artwork looks rather garish, the product itself is actually very good. The finish is to a very high standard and Xigmatek have clearly spent time maximising the quality while building to a very specific price point.
Internally, the quality remains high with only minor concerns over the plastic drive clips and expansion bay holders. The paint work is fantastic throughout and we like the fact that Xigmatek are selling the chassis with three side panel options.
The version we tested really needs two side fans installed or it does look ‘unfinished’. I think Xigmatek could have covered these with two plates to enhance the appearance, especially if the end user didn’t wish to add fans.
