Xigmatek Elysium Case Review
The rest of the Elysium’s top is covered by a large metallic mesh cover with a plastic frame and Xigmatek’s “X” logo on it. The mesh can be removed by simply pulling the plastic switch seen at the right of the picture.
Beneath the mesh lies the perforated top panel of the Elysium, cut in a honeycomb pattern and able to house up to three 120mm/140mm fans or two 200mm fans, or up to a triple watercooling radiator.
At the all black rear side of the Elysium we can see the two possible PSU compartments, a 140mm exhaust fan and no less than 7 rubber grommets covering the holes for watercooling hoses. We have no idea why Xigmatek installed so many rubber grommets but still one of them will be very useful for routing the USB 3.0 to the back panel of your motherboard. Xigmatek felt that the bottom PSU compartment would be more frequently used and installed a cover on the top compartment, which can be moved to the bottom compartment if the user wishes. You can also install an extra 80mm cooling fan on the cover.
Another 80mm or 120mm fan can be installed at the rear of the CPU area. We feel that this cooling fan might be relatively useless since the back of the motherboards rarely ever requires any kind of cooling but Xigmatek does offer the option.
