The Tigas is most definitely high end with a price tag of $499 plus shipping, but that is not without reason. The Tigas is a full aluminum all black anodized chassis designed with gaming, multimedia, and storage in mind. For the user that has storage in mind the Tigas has front access to 10 hot-swappable SATA/SAS hard drive bays that have independent power switches to allow the user to have control over what drives power up. The hard drive bays are cooled by 3 front mounted 120mm blue LED 3 speed intake fans, and two 120mm rear exhaust fans. For those with sound issues the Tigas has sound insulation and rubber strips on the side panels to reduce noise. For the gamer with even the most power hungry of components, there is ample space for those components, water cooling tube pass through ports, and even the ability for dual power supply units.
