Xigmatek MidGard II Case Review

Review Score:
2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Today we will be focusing on a new Mid Tower chassis from Xigmatek, the MidGard II. This is the second case released in the MidGard series, following up on the popular original MidGard model.  Can the new MidGard II match the success of it’s predecessor?

One of the main talking points is that Xigmatek have used a special surface treatment on the front and top panels, which gives the chassis a leather like appearance.  This treatment helps to reduce the number of finger prints that will appear on the exterior of the chassis.

The MidGard II is available with or without a windowed side panel. Our review sample does not have the window but it does support 2 fans of either 120mm or 140mm in size.

Features:

  • “Leather -coating” on top and front panel
  • 2.5/3.5” SATA HDD docking station on the top panel
  • Top I/O panel includes one USB3.0 port, two USB2.0 ports, and HD audio in/out jacks
  • Middle HDD cage is removable for long VGA cards
  • Six internal 2.5”/3.5” drive trays with anti-vibration rubbers

    I like that surface, I think bitfenix use the same thing on some of their latest cases which is great.
