Xigmatek Aquila Review

Introduction 

It's been a while since we looked at a Xigmatek case, In fact if you want to see the last Xigmatek case we reviewed you'll have to go all the way back to January 2012 when we looked at the Gigas.  Since then the boys at Xigmatek have been busy slaving away over hot CAD systems, and aside from bringing to market quite a few of the aggressively styled budget Mid tower cases for which they are perhaps better known, they have also come up with the new, rather sleek looking Aquila.  Although it's not actually that small Xigmatek have classed the Aquila as a mini tower, with it being able to take both M-ITX and M-ATX motherboards.  They've also made it available in classic Black and the monochromatic Black and White version we have for review today.  Sling in a good sized side panel window and what looks to be room for AIO water-cooling and we're hopeful we may have a winner on our hands.

Nice work Gary it's well, something different I suppose, strange aesthetics reminds me of a retro 60's portable radiator, but those internals more than make up for it, lots of room for a showy stylish LAN rig.Quote

Yeah, it's not bad at all, but it always irks me when manufacturers miss opportunities such as the potential extended water cooling that this case could have featuredQuote

No point having a great looking case if you're going to keep it hidden under the desk matey.Quote
