Xigmatek Midgard Case Review

Xigmatek Midgard Case – Introduction

Founded in 2005 Xigmatek have not been around for long but we have reviewed many of their products including heatsinks and several PSUs, often finding them to be excellent products. Lately they have also been releasing performance computer cases which are reasonably priced which makes them very appealing to a large number of consumers. As with their other products the cases use Norse mythology for a naming scheme and todays review product is named after "Midgard" – home of mankind and protected by Thor, God of thunder, and his hammer. The Midgard is a high performance case designed to offer enthusiast-grade functionality and performance at a very low retail price, let’s find out what it is like.
