Corsair 800D or Xigmatek Elysium

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, not sure what case to get. Looking for advice here.

I'll be doing water-cooling build with GTX 580 SLi. I also like the window to see inside, but not sure if the elysium can be modded to fit that as well.

Thanks.

I have the 700D with 800D Side panel and love it, you have my vote but lol of course it's a little bias seeing as to how I don't own the xig, did a little google on it and it looks nice, my only complaint about the 7/800D is it dosent work well with my rose will power supply cables are to short and the holes don't align with the holes on the case so it's not screwed in... So do your research lol I'd say just go with A corsair

There is a windowed version of Elysium.

yeah sorry I didn't elaborate about that, that window kinds of have the fan in the way, so I don't really like that. That's why I asked about modding it.

I like the spaciousness of the Elysium, but not sure about its grating with all the possible air/dust intake (esp since I'm going water). However, I'm also liking its 10 expansion slots over the 800D's 7, although I'm not sure if I'm even getting a motherboard now to support that many.

Main thing for me now is actually window + water-cooling. I've seen some threads saying that the Elysium should now trump 800D as the one with a lot of space and proper areas for installing water-cooling.

wow, i had no idea the Xigmatek Elysium existed, I'm building a new box (after so many years) and was between the 800d and the half x ... now with the Elysium is in the picture I have a harder choice.

Xigmatek by far, you can fit a 480 rad STOCK. 2x 580, processor = 480 rad is needed

Xigmatek Elysium for sure..
I like 800D's look, but if compare with its price, feature, size, Watercooling capabilities, Elysium has no competition..

If you want a full window version, just cut the mesh fan and put a new clear plexi..

I was looking at 800d or CM Storm Sniper ( don't like haf series for some reason?? ). Ran across the Xig Elysium and ordered it up this weekend. Can't wait to get it. From what I read it looks to be a little better for completely internal water cooling setups AND it had better connections up front ( USB 3, esata ) which the 800D lacked. Only going to be doing a CPU loop because I got the 580 Lighting from the Amazon deal and you can't get waterblocks for it. The way better air cooling of the Xig also swayed me there since I will need a little airflow also, which the 800D definitely lacks.

Either is a great case. I went with the Elysium myself.
