Like most of the cases that Xigmatek offers, the Elysium is available in many configurations. Currently either with black or silver Aluminum strips on the front in combination with a solid or windowed side panel. This means we have four different cases to choose from.</span><br><br><img alt="blackblack.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://tpucdn.com/reviews/Xigmatek/Elysium/images/blackblack.jpg"><img alt="blackwindow.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://tpucdn.com/reviews/Xigmatek/Elysium/images/blackwindow.jpg"><img alt="silverblack.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://tpucdn.com/reviews/Xigmatek/Elysium/images/silverblack.jpg"><img alt="silverwindow.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://tpucdn.com/reviews/Xigmatek/Elysium/images/silverwindow.jpg"><br><img alt="Elysiumspecs2.png" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g60/Matthew_Bates/Elysiumspecs2.png"><br><br><br><img alt="teaching.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/teaching.gif"><span><span style="font-size:16px;">Rules: Simple, just post a pic of your case:teaching:<br>

My only complaint about the Elsylum is the HDD bays, but I understand the design choice.<br>
I wish they would have gone with dedicated 5.25" bays and a 90* turned HDD rack.

</div>or maybe do like some of the lian li cases did and put them across the bottom of the case, and have them removable for rad installation. . .<br />
<br />
since one of the major draws of the case is the 420/360(top or bottom) rad support plus the ability to put a 480 rad in the front bays, only little thing that i would have changed, those 5.25" drive bay supports, they'll get in the way of a few things that take up more than 1 slot and have flat sides, but since it's easy to cut them off or flatten them it's just a minor inconvenience, not a deal breaker

I really like this case...looking forward to it being launched here....I only dont like how the front extends to the top, an unnecessary detail I think...

You can do some very creative face-lifting on this case. Definite 100% mod potential <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

Picked mine up today from newegg at the pickup kiosk. This thing is an absolute monster, much bigger than my coolermaster cosmos s. Count me in the club, I'll upload a picture in just a moment.<br>
My only complaints is that the hard drive bay is designed a little weird and that my psu does not have enough cables to properly power all the secondary fan boards in the case. But yeah, this makes my EVGA SR-2 look totally dinky XD.

Here's what I've got so far. I can post more pictures if people want. Either way, its awesome case, with very good cable management. Although, my case was dented just a tiny bit when I opened it after the hour long trip home. I'm hoping to contact xigmatek and see if they'll give me a new one or if I can buy a new front off of them. (front of the case snaps off and on, very easily. Apparently, its also fragile, seeing as it was dented out of the box)<br><img alt="215531d1308208495-xigmatek-elysium-club-2011-06-15_18-34-44_225.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://www.overclock.net/attachments/computer-cases/215531d1308208495-xigmatek-elysium-club-2011-06-15_18-34-44_225.jpg"><br>
Need to work on my cable management a bit <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

Amazing case for an amazing price,defo getting one of these.If anyone has a 360 rad can they show pics of it in the front bays or let me know how many drive bays are left please?<br><br>
I want to be going with a 360 up top,360 in the front.May even mod the bottom to accomodate a 240 if needed,as it cant be fitted with the PSU in there,or is this fixed.Will be going with the black windowless version and cut my own window,dont like the shape of the window they used.<img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Absolutely. Just started the thread at the end of the work day yesterday and had dinner out with the little woman last night. Changes being typed as we speak! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

If yes..then u can easuly fit a 360 on top (outside)..psu inside on top and 360 on the bottom and 480 in yhe front??? Lolz<br><br>
Thats will be badass..3 big rads...<br><br>
And maybe to over kill it more<br><br>

Negative on the bottom as it is. The PSU pushes too far forward and covers some of the floor grill (it's a design oversight, look at Tim's review vid in the OP), but if you are willing to cut into the case then yeah, you should have enough distance from the PSU to the front of the case, though it will take between 2-5 drive bays depending on rad/fan thickness and whether or not your running push and/or pull.<br><br>
A 240 would be simpler to put in and require less modding (though still some).<br><br>
Still I want a 360 on top and at least another 240 in here. Since I will have 2 360's on hand for this case, I will have to figure something out. Post us up some pics when you get it!

D you mean a 360 rad on the top internally with spacers to mount a raised 360 on the top outside?<br><br>
Sounds like a plan,could be pretty damn awesome.Also i wonder if the 420 rad in the front allows for a rom drive.
