Xigmatek White Knight – Externals

The case itself is as you would expect, pure iPod style white. It has a good solid construction and while initial impressions are smooth and classy, it has more gaming and cooling related features than you’d expect.

The front panel is made up of four grilled 5.25″ panels to allow for some airflow through the ones you arn’t filling with optical drives.

Beneath these you have the front panel connectors, including two USB, two 3.5mm jacks and an eSata port. However there are no power buttons here, for that we have to go up top.

Beneath the front panel there’s another grilled section with an embossed Ximgatek X, behind which since the front 120mm intake fan.

Back up the top we have the promised power button and reset switch, along with power and HDD activity LEDs.

The right hand (looking from the back) side panel has twin fan mounts for increased cooling capacity.

The rear has another 12cm fan mount which does have a fan fitted as stock. This one is in an exhaust configuration and has two watercooling tube slots just above it.

There are two more water cooling tubing holes located next to the PCI brackets which are all slitted for increased air flow. These sit just above the floor PSU mounting location.

The underside of the White Knight has a couple of noteworthy features as well. There are two fan mounts, one with a slotable, washable dust filter which covers the PSU intake slot.

There’s also several rubber feet, one in each corner. This not only allows air to circulate beneath the case, allowing for easier intake of air for the base mounted fans. This also helps steady the case and makes it less likely to topple over.
