Xigmatek Pantheon Mid Tower Chassis Review (Page 4)

The Xigmatek Pantheon Mid Tower Case


With all the packing now gone, I am glad to see that the window also comes protected with a static cling plastic sheet on this side, and more of a film that needs peeled on the inside.


The front of the Pantheon has a smooth and rounded "feel" to it. The top holds four mesh bay covers, the bottom of which will adapt to house a floppy drive. Below is a large ventilated mesh panel. The large tab at the bottom gets tugged and the panel can be removed for hard drive access.


There is a large foam block behind the panel to keep the tray in place during transit; you should remove this. In the bays you can see the six trays for the hard drives. The bottom tray has the hardware box set in with the same pins through the box that will hold the 3.5" drives in place.


The front I/O has everything you need - USB 3.0, audio jacks, LED lighting control, and even two fan controllers capable of powering up to six fans; three each.


Just under the mesh you saw behind the I/O panel you saw in the last image is this well for fan-s or a radiator. The panel covering this simply lifts up and removes easily. In here you can house a pair of either 120mm or 140mm fans or a dual radiator for either 120 or 140mm.


The left panel has of course the large window which I haven't peeled the plastic from yet, but also has a large ventilated area near the front. This opening is backed with a pair of 120mm fans that are used for both the intake for the chassis and the direct cooling of the hard drive bays.


Here is where the gods have smote my chassis. Not only did the box get trashed and the foam broken, but it seems my chassis may have fallen from the roof of the Pantheon. This folding of the door panel continued into the frame of the chassis and distorted it pretty good.


The rear of the chassis shows the two holes in the plastic top and the quartet of holes down the right side for water cooling. There is a 140mm fan for exhausting the chassis and seven expansion slots all above the bottom mounted power supply.


The right side panel is pretty plain except for the matching vented area we saw on the other side. This will allow the pair of fans on the reverse to flow across the drives and right out of this side of the chassis.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
