XPG Invader X Review: Thermal & Noise Damping/Output Evaluation

The XPG Invader X offers a panoramic view to the system’s internals, thanks to the 3mm tempered-glass panels. Not only it supports horizantal GPU installation, but it includes in its bundle the corresponding parts to do that. It supports up to 10x 120mm fans, meaning that you will be able to install whatever cooling solution(s) you desire, and it comes bundled with 5x fans. 

Do you want a panoramic view of your system? Glass everywhere? Then, the new XPG Invader X will catch your attention, as it caught mine. This case features 3mm tempered glass at its side and front and has five pre-installed fans, four of which feature RGB lighting. The features include the support for vertical GPU installation, with up to 400mm in length, magnetic dust filters, and a removable PSU shroud. It supports up to 10x 120mm fans and 360mm radiators on the side or the top. Lastly, it supports motherboards with connectors on the back for flawless cable management.



For those of you who will mount the GPU horizontally, a GPU holder is included to keep it in place. If you prefer to mount the GPU vertically, there is an included GPU mount. In some models, XPG even provides a 180mm long PCIe 4.0 riser cable.

The Invader X has one regular fan and four 120mm reverse fans. The case draws cool air from the bottom and right side of the chassis. Tests conducted by the XPG RD team have proven that installing the 120mm reverse blade fans in the Invader X optimizes cooling efficiency. This is something that I will check through my extended thermal testing.
