Today, we review MSI’s MPG Velox 100R Mid-Tower chassis, a versatile gaming case that incorporates great looks with excellent functionality. The MPG series represents MSI’s premium chassis line. Other cases in the MPG line-up include the Gungnir, Sekira, and Quietude, with each receiving several sub-models. Each one features similar aspects with key elements that define and personalize the individual models. We reviewed the Gungnir 110R and Sekira 100R previously, so now it’s on to the Velox 100R.
Today, we take a look at MSI’s MPG Sekira 100R mid-tower chassis. This is the second review of a series of new MSI cases announced in August, the first being the MSI MPG Gungnir 110R. The Sekira 100R is a gaming chassis that provides a touch of class with its chrome edging, ARGB lighting, and tempered glass front and side panels. It shares many of the great features we loved in the Gungnir 110R with a different aesthetic and several new innovations that caught our attention. Conversely, if you prefer an RGB-less build, be sure to check out the Sekira 100P. It is the same chassis as the Sekira 100R, without all the flashy lights or tempered glass front panel.
MSI is well known for its motherboards, graphics cards, and power supplies, but what about its PC cases? Yes, they do make PC cases. A few weeks ago, we reported that MSI had released many new USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C equipped cases. In turn, MSI has submitted several of these chassis for review. The first in this series of reviews will be the MSI MPG GUNGNIR 110R. It’s been over eight years since I’ve had my hands on an MSI case, so I’m excited to see what MSI has to offer.
Montech is a fairly new face in the PC community. They started in 2016 and have only been around for 5 years, so there is little known about their products. Today, we attempt to change that as we review the Montech X3 Glass, Montech’s newest entry-level PC chassis. Touted as their top billing for entry-level cases, they claim it’s greatly improved over previous “X” series cases. In this review, we run the X3 Glass through the trenches to determine what this budget-friendly chassis is capable of.
Today on the review table is the XPG Starker. A compact and versatile mid-tower chassis. While it is the smallest case offered by ADATA’s gaming division, XPG, there is still plenty of space for a multitude of components and various configurations. This is due to intelligently designed features and multipurpose plates included with the Starker. We will get into that and much more as we take a deep dive into what makes the XPG Starker so special.
The XPG Defender Pro is a Mid-Tower chassis that offers enthusiast-grade performance with exceptional airflow and functionality.

The XPG group, a division of ADATA, is best known for its excellent solid state drives and memory modules. The XPG Invader represents the first PC chassis to come to the market for Xtreme Performance Group. As such, they opted to manufacture “a sleek and versatile mid-tower chassis that sports a tool-less design, high-airflow layout, and a front RGB downlight that can be personalized with the XPG Prime™ ARGB Combo Controller.”
Recently, Antec released its latest mid-tower chassis, the DF600 FLUX. This case is marketed as the “Ultimate Thermal Performance” gaming chassis.
