PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Xigmatek offers the Pantheon chassis in several configurations. It’s available with a plain or windowed side panel and the front panel can be had with silver accents or all black, for a total of four different looks. With the exception of the window and trim options, the cases are identical and have an interesting feature set that we’ll explore in more detail as we proceed.
There are a surprising number of cooling and convenience features in this case, considering its relatively modest price. Again, we’ll examine all these in more detail later, but I like what I see so far.
For less than $100 US, here’s what you get.
Xigmatek frequently alludes to Norse mythology when naming their products, but they venture south to ancient Rome for this chassis’ moniker. The Roman Pantheon is a temple dedicated to all the roman gods, hence the “WHERE THE GODS ARE SETTLED” verbiage on the box. The carton also features specifications and an extensive feature list to give the consumer some idea of what to expect from the case. Inside, the Pantheon is wrapped in a plastic bag and sandwiched between two sturdy Styrofoam blocks to protect it during transit.
Included with the chassis is a user’s manual, some cable management clips, some zip ties and the installation hardware. There’s not much in the way of accessories in the box. This could mean a disappointing installation or a well-designed interior with lots of tool-free features. Judging from my past experience with Xigmatek cases, I suspect the latter.
