Gigabyte has announced a new addition to its Xtreme Gaming lineup of components. This time around, it comes in the form of a PC case called the XC700W. Prior to this, the company’s Xtreme Gaming series was made up of high-performance PC parts such as graphics cards, gaming peripherals and an SLI bridge.
Gigabyte’s new Xtreme Gaming XC700W PC chassis – which we first spotted back in Computex 2016 – is a full tower case, which measures 593.5mm x 240.5mm x 546.6mm. According to the well known Taiwanese company, the XC700W was built using three different materials : SECC (steel electroplated chromated coated) steel, aluminium, and tempered glass.
The Xtreme Gaming XC700W PC chassis features a rather minimalistic design. It comes with a black and ‘metallic’ silver colour scheme. One cool feature about this PC case is the fact that it is endowed with RGB elements. Some of the RGB-lit areas include the badge found in front of the chassis, as well as the striking Xtreme Gaming logo found alongside the tempered glass section of the PC case.
Gigabyte have stated that the Xtreme Gaming XC700W will be able to house motherboards in either a mini-ITX, m-ATX, or ATX form factors. Graphics card clearance is said to be around 430mm. It’s worth mentioning, however, that this case isn’t one that is very portable. According to Gigabyte, the case weighs in at about 15.4kg.
Unfortunately, details regarding the release date and pricing for the Xtreme Gaming XC700W was not mentioned by Gigabyte. But, judging by the looks and features of the PC case, we don’t expect it to be very affordable.
