BitFenix Introduces Pandora ATX Case



BitFenix’ Pandora featured a 2.8″ ICON LCD on the front and had a very unique minimalist front design on a slim form factor. Many liked the look although the smaller, more compact size restricted a lot of installation possibilities. BitFenix has now answered back with a Pandora ATX version that can hit full-sized ATX motherboards and even has enough room for a 360mm radiator unlike the original Pandora. As with the previous Pandora case, the new Pandora ATX will also come in a “Core” version that does not come equipped with the 2.8″ programmable graphic LCD although it will come in a more affordable price point.

Taipei, Taiwan – The BitFenix case family sees itself expanded today with the launch of the new Pandora ATX. As the name suggests, it is an ATX version of the already launched Pandora, which combines high-class aesthetics with supreme functionality in a compact form factor. The Pandora ATX offers the same much-loved unique styling, but combines it with housing capabilities for full-sized ATX motherboards and one 360mm radiator, to form a versatile base for any DIY projects.

Pandora ATX initially launches exclusively in black, with two versions available – Pandora ATX and Pandora ATX Core. The former is equipped with the 2.8” ICON LCD display in the front, allowing for an added personalized touch of the front fascia. This is achieved by an easy-to-use drag-and-drop software solution, with the display itself connected by a USB header to the motherboard.

Internally, the Pandora ATX stays true to the BitFenix DNA of innovation – this time mainly evident in the one-piece power cover design, effectively creating a separate bottom chamber for the PSU and HDDs at the bottom. This solution gives added space for exposure of hardware for modding projects, improves case rigidity and shields HDD and PSU noise.

Cooling is provided out of the box by the built-in 1x140mm (front) and 1x120mm (rear) fans, but the Pandora ATX is compatible with some pretty advanced watercooling builds. Supporting a 360mm radiator, top or front, and with dedicated brackets and supports for pumps and reservoirs, it makes for a truly dexterous base for any water cooling project.

In terms of expansion capabilities, the Pandora ATX comes with support for up to 440mm long graphics cards, 4x 2.5” SSDs and 4x 3.5” HDDs. Maximum PSU length is 220 mm, while CPU cooler height is a maximum of 160mm.
