A look at MSI's MPG GUNGNIR 100 PC Case

MSI may be fairly new to the PC case market, but they are not ignorant of the needs of high-end PC builders, being one of the world's largest manufacturers of motherboards, graphics cards and other OC components and accessories. 

With their new GUNGNIR 100 chassis, MSI hopes to deliver on the needs of liquid cooling enthusiasts, while also offering users of EATX motherboards (up to 272mm) enough space for all their required accessories and add-ons. 

For £99.99, MSI promises a lot with its GUNGNIR 100, and today, we will be having an in-depth look at the chassis. 

GUNGNIR 100 Variants

MSI's GUNGNIR 100 chassis takes many forms, and today, we will be looking at the case's premier GUNGNIR 100 variant. 100D and 100P versions are also available, but the 100 offers users the most features out of the box, which includes ARGB lighting, four included fans and a 1-8 ARGB lighting hub, which will help RGB enthusiasts to fulfil their wildest lighting dreams. 

MSI's GUNGNIR 100 costs £99.99 in the UK while the GUNGNIR 100D costs £89.99 and the GUNGNIR 100P costs £79.99.

Within the GUNGNIR 100 sits a single rear-mounted 120mm ARGB (Addressable RGB fan) alongside three non-RGB 120mm fans, which when combined give the case ample airflow at stock. On the top of the enclosure sits mounting locations for three additional 120mm fans or two extra 140mm fans, allowing up to seven fans to be mounted within the system. 

The front and rear 120mm fans can also be replaced with 140mm fans if the user wishes, granting this case support for up to a 420mm radiator at the front, which will be more than enough for most custom water cooled PCs. The case also features enough space for a top-mounted 360mm radiator, making this case a water cooler's paradise, at least in terms of out-of-the-box radiator support.

3D Printing? 

With the GUNGNIR 100, MSI also touts this case's support for 3D printed upgrades. To be honest, every PC enclosure supports 3D printed upgrades, as the limits of 3D printing being defined by user creativity, not dedicated hardware support. 

In MSI's case, they have given users the option to replace two plates on their system with user-personalised version. 3D models for the pieces pictured below are available on MSI's website, which can be customised to create unique lighting elements. It is nice that MSI has given users this option, but 3D printing is nowhere near popular enough for this feature to be useful to most end-users.

That front panel looks suspiciously like my Area 51.

I guess that's a compliment, given how long I've had mine.Quote

Meh more tempered glass, I wish case manufacturers would offer a different side panel than one which can be easily broken when transporting the pc.

Then there is the front panel, from the pictures it looks really restrictive.

Thankfully due to a room issue, I think my next case is actually going to be a handmade desk but I need to figure out how I am going to do it and also do the top.Quote

I quite like it. Inside is open and simplistic, no trays or cages that take up space or get in the way.

No tacky MSI branding inside, or any other nonsense we have seen from Asus etc. Shame about front logo but it for some reason I find it somewhat "quaint"?Quote

There is a version with a big MSI dragon on the front.

The front panel works like mine. It's stepped forward leaving loads of space for air to go in. Mine is on exhaust, but temps are good.

The name is totally daft though. Might make sense in China but doesn't here lol.
