BitFenix Pandora ATX Case Overview
For a full overview of the Pandora ATX be sure to check out our video below.
The BitFenix Pandora ATX has a very elegant design to it. The side panels actually curve at the front, which actually make for a very cool look. The case also seems to be slimmer than most cases as well. The official dimensions of the case are 203 x 510 x 558mm (WxHxD) and it weighs in at just under 22 lbs. The is currently only available in the black version.
Taking a look at front of the case you can see how the two panels of the case curve in. The front of the case does not have any drive bays and you won’t find any on this case. I mean who really uses optical drives these days? So with a plain front where are the intakes? They are actually behind the curved panels, we will show you them once we get the panels off.
At the top of the case is where you will find your connections and buttons. From left to right you have a large power button, two USB 3.0 ports, headphone and microphone ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a large reset button.
The rest of the top of the case has a honeycomb design for cooling. If you press down on this section of the case it will actually pop open to reveal the cooling options below. The top of the case acts as a large filter. Below we find room for either three 120 mm fans or two 140 mm fans as well as watercooling radiators up to 360 mm. Since the top of the case is removable it makes it easier to install fans or a radiator and it makes cleaning easy too.
The case features a nice large side panel window that will allow you to show off all of your hardware inside. You can also see how the side panel curves as it gets to the front of the case.
Moving around to the back of the case we have a 140 mm exhaust fan and there are watercooling holes above the fan. Below that you have your expansion slots and your power supply mount is of course on the bottom of the case. Both side panels use thumbscrews so it is easy to get in the case when you need to.
At the bottom of the case we find four feet that will lift it off the ground enough to get some airflow under the case. There is also a removable fan filter for your power supply that can be pulled out from the back of the case.
