Pros:

- Its huge.
- lots of rad mounting options


Cons:

-Paint, paint, paint, & paint. The black sucks tbh.
-better hdd cage design.

Ideas:
-rad support for 480/560mm radiators on top.
-front mount psu
-Full window!
-brackets to mount front mount rad (possible sliding of one of the bay supports structures to support 140mm radiators).
-make the back cable area a bit wider. Well, why not make the whole thing 1/2" wider (~12mm) wink.gif
-parts availability (take note from Cooler Master and especially Corsair)
-offer an option for a white case. Its catching on and a few members have done the Elysium in white which looks awesome thumb.gif
-Inverted mb or slide out mb tray (a'la Azza Genesis) - check "KingChris'" build thumb.gif

I'd like to see better HDD mounting, that's about all smile.gif
post #1357 of 1907
Based on what I made to mine:
1) Better wheels placement. When using wheels, remove the back bottom plastic and treaded holes under it.
2) USB3.0 internal 19-pin header with external adapter (now all mobo's have USB3.0 internal connectors).
3) Slightly longer internal support bracket for the few who still mount a PSU on top.
4) Small cable passage right under PSU top bay, since most motherboards have the ATX12V plug right there.
5) Bottom storage cage available as option, for those who don't do massive WC and might like the Elysium enormous space to build a workstation/server in it. 12x capacity with ease, fans and without occupying front bays.
6) Move the small rivet just under the 140 rear fan position, it might interfere with non-standard-mount fans (i.e. TY-140/141/143).
7) For extreme WC, given the space available, place some 2.5"/3.5" or slim ODD mounting brackets sideways of the 5.25" bays, vertically. It would require a cut-out plastic/metal front trim, maybe 1 slim ODD bay on one side, 4x2.5"/3.5" on the other, with cable passages on the bay columns rear lips.

For me the size of the super tower is King. The overall design is solid.
But a few issues.. The side panel is a pain to put on. The HD cages are also something I find difficult to take in and out. Rad support is good But could be better. Wermad covers this in post.. Also a full window and more color choices would help . Very interested to see what you have in the works.

2 things I would like to see,one is some holes with grommets on drive bay area see picture below,the other thing is on the bottom extend the rad or fan openings to go under drive bay ,so if we want to add a 480 rad we can.One thing I would like to ask is who can I call to order if possible a part for my Elysium?I think most people buy this case for water cooling and a full window would be great most guys just cut the fans out anyway.
