Xigmatek Utgard Review


Xigmatek Utgard Review


If you have managed to find OC3D then you are obviously a very wise person for starters, but by a process of elimination there is also a very large chance you would fall into the PC Enthusiast catergory. If such a badge is applicable there is no doubt in my mind that you will of heard of Xigmatek. Again, by a process of elimination, it is very likely your Xigmatek encounters have been restricted to the awesome fans they produce. Often companies try to diversify from what they are famed for and have a crack at the case market. One rather large company tried it recently and really should of stayed in bed the morning that project was notioned.

As ever here at OC3D towers we like to give every product that graces the office a clean sheet, and at least give it a chance to show us what it has to offer. Bring forth the Xigmatec Utgard which on face value has a lot of tidy features, but can it really deliver the goods?

Lets stop blathering as I doubt many of you even read this bit anyways and move onto the specifications:
