Digging into the history of where this new chassis received its name, I found that there were actually two of these buildings. Here comes a bit of history! The original building was erected under a commission from Marcus Agrippa as a temple to Mars and Venus in 27 BC, but was burned down in 80 AD, and again in 110AD by lightning. Some years later, Emperor Hadrian commissioned the building which we see today. The new temple construction was to now worship all the gods of ancient Rome. The building is of course the Pantheon which has stood the test of time for near two whole centuries.
The history of the continual burning and damage to the building play into this review in an odd way, so I will continue on the path that the Pantheon name might still be guarded by these Roman gods. The package I received from Xigmatek looks like it had the wrath of something inflicted on it during shipping; I can only hope at this point that the chassis inside is in fair enough condition to show you what the chassis offers.
Speaking of what the chassis has to offer, The Pantheon mid tower chassis shows intriguing designs and what appears to be a very good feature set. With the mane of this chassis being Pantheon, I find it slightly odd that such a vast building spawned inspiration for a mid tower build. I assume that with this name there is a vast amount of room in the interior, and with the completed product, it should appear clean and simplistic. Xigmatek has quite a history of great bang for the buck products up to this point, but they don't have the two centuries of the name sake, but I will see if this is not only the case to fit my criteria, but will this chassis stand the test of time?
