Specification and Package

Here are the Features:

The Xigmatek Gigas is an all aluminum Micro-ATX small form factor chassis with a stylish, brushed aluminum finish in either Silver or Black. From the exterior, the Gigas appears deceptively small for a Micro-ATX case. Inside, the Gigas packs many unique and industry leading performance features. The Gigas chassis houses 2 x 5.25” optical disk drive bays with one bay featuring a custom bezel. Inside, there are two drive cages that can each house 3 x 3.5” and one 2.5” drive for an unheard of 6 x 3.5” + 2 x 2.5” drives. The case is designed to allow for the use of a full-length 320mm graphics card and can accommodate up to a 160mm side blowing cooler. Four 12cm fans, two of each located in the front and rear of the case provide excellent cooling performance to round out this unmatched design.

In today’s packing world we are use to seeing the typical brown box; however Xigmatek took it to the next level and used a full color printed art packing box. It makes this more appealing to the eye and attracts you to take a closer look. Xigmatek kept the art basic, but dynamic and gets right to the point with listing the features of this chassis.


Looking at the side of the package, Xigmatek goes into a little more detail here and shows off the case with some pictures and specifications listed at a glance so you can plan out your PC build.

The contents included with the chassis have the usual accessories we expect to find. Xigmatek did add a nice touch here by including a 3 fan PCI slot controller. This was a smart move on Xigmatek’s part as this is a small form factor chassis to begin with.
