Case Build & Finished Product
As we finished the build, we left the side panels off the Pandora ATX. This allows a good view to see how the intake works with the panels covering most of the bezel. The large holes on the side easily intake cooler air for the fans that can be placed behind this panel.
Inside of the Pandora ATX, we had no issues with fitment or alignment. While we did not opt for a custom loop, it is easy to see the room in the front offered, and just how the motherboard fits for top mounting water cooling. Even so, we have a very clean build with little wiring showing, and everything inside is on full display to see through the window.
The back of the chassis offered up no surprises either. The dust shield snapped right in, the card aligned as it should, and the PSU was easy to line up and screw into place.
We didn't have to get into anything crazy behind the motherboard tray, but at the same time, all the leads are gentle runs of wiring, and plenty of ways to maintain them to be had. Even with the 24-pin and the front I/O wiring together, the panel still snaps right back on the chassis without conflict.
While the normal view was quite pleasing, we did find the wiring plan to sort of fall apart. There is plenty of room to close the panel on this mess without rubbing anything, but we just found it tough to do anything cleanly using the chassis with our gear and the layout provided.
Full disclosure being what we do, we do have to mention that our AIO is a bit wider than the case can handle., If you look along the top of the panel, it is bent to fit, but was still able to be locked down in the back with the thumbscrews. Now all we need is a bit of power. From this angle, the ICON display is lost in the glare of the lights and does not stay on long when initially booting up. The view from the window is very nice, and the LEDs on the card and head unit shine brightly without it being tinted.
