BitFenix Pandora ATX Review

Conclusion

Well, there we have it, the BitFenix Pandora ATX. I hadn’t checked the price of this case until I started to write the conclusion and I was very surprised at how well priced it was. The case is on offer at £86.99 at www.overclockers.co.uk with the usual price being £99.99. Even at full price I honestly believe that this case would suit the majority of users.

The BitFenix Pandora ATX for me is everything that the Pandora should have been. Pretty much every issue I had with the Pandora has been resolved, I know I have been writing this whole article like this is the replacement to the original Pandora rather than an alternative, but I really wouldn’t bother with the Matx version when this is available. The improvements are vast and many, we now have proper space for cable management, the side panels won’t pop off because they actually have thumb screws and we have plenty of cooling options. Full sized GPUs will fit without any modding and the whole case just feels more grown up. I don’t know how much BitFenix monitor the community, but I don’t think it is an accident that they have addressed all the issues that were present with the first Pandora. They have taken a beautiful case and made it usable for the masses.

Pros

Multiple mounting options for storage devices.

Great liquid cooling support.

PSU cover.

3 fan filters (PSU, top and front).

Better cable management.

Cons

The windowed side panel is very flimsy.

Large GPUs may foul pump bracket.

Rating

I still don’t have any kind of award system, so I am going to stick with my ratings.
