Xigmatek announces the Midgard III, one of world's first cases to feature a Qi wireless charging point on top of the case. This mid-tower has support for ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards and has the usual cut-outs for easier cable management. There's support for VGA cards of up to 330mm long and CPU coolers as tall as 160mm.

Midgard III offers three 5.25" drive bays and six 2.5/3.5" storage bays spread evenly across two removable cages. There are provisions for two 120mm front intakes, 120mm rear exhaust, 120mm bottom intake, two 140mm top exhaust and a 280 x 140mm top radiator.

The front I/O panel features two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and HD audio jacks. Pricing and availability is unknown.
Quite a few high-end Android smartphones feature Qi, and for smartphones that don't, wireless charging braces exist. The wireless charging dock draws power from a conventional Molex connector, sipping 5VSB power off the PSU, even when the system is shut down. Measuring 260 mm x 515 mm x 409 mm (WxHxD), the Midgard III is made of SECC steel and ABS, much like its predecessors.
