MSI has a couple of new cases coming to consumers in the UK. The MSI MPG Sekira is a high-end product and should offer a plethora of features and support for multiple radiators, which will please liquid cooling enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the MAG Vampiric is a more budget-oriented option but still packs some premium features.
The MSI MPG Sekira is available in various forms, all three of the Sekira models feature a tempered glass side window panel, mounted on a hinge for easy access and provides a great view of the hardware inside the chassis. The MPG Sekira 500X is equipped with extractable radiator bracket to provide a tool-less installation of liquid cooling. A pre-installed RGB LED hub comes with the Sekira 500X which allows up to eight addressable RGB fans to be connected and controlled.
Further additions to the MPG Sekira range are the 500G, which includes the same removable radiator bracket as the 500X but with a plain front panel featuring rose gold outlines around the edges. The MPG Sekira 500P version is very similar to the 500G but with a platinum level tempered glass panel, which makes the case stronger and allows users to upgrade their devices rapidly, according to MSI.
