The Raijintek Pan Slim is a unique-looking, desktop-style case, which allows you to place your monitor on top of it and slide your keyboard underneath. While one may assume this format isn't meant for potent hardware, the Pan Slim can tackle both your beefy GPU and 240 mm AIO cooling with ease.

LOL, I don't think anyone is going to use it like this...

This looks like a pretty sick candidate for a gaming capable HTPC though. The only thing I don't like about it is those weird looking post modern feet which should be easy to change and the "Raijintek" logo which is hopefully something that can come off without ruining the finish.

I like it, but the price is a bit much in my book for what it is. If it was 150-200 I would be much more interested in replacing my current small rigs case.

Very niche product and expensive. Regarding ITX/DTX builds, a SilverStone Sugo SG08-LITE (15l volume) or SG14 (20l volume for 3 slots up to 330mm VGAs) at 1/3 of the price will cover most of the needs of an ITX build imo.

Well it's a nifty lookin but pricey little case, but will most likely remain a niche product for most folks...

And low & behold, it actually has a friggin USB-C port on the front I/O, unlike sooooo many other, moar bigger mid & full sized "NEW" tower cases from the past 3 years or so.... whazzzzupwitdat ?????

Yeah, the Silverstone is cheaper but isn't nearly the same class of case. The Silverstone is mostly cheap stamped steel, whereas the Raijintek looks like its pretty thick AL panels all around, all of it anodized and it looks like some fairly intricate machining, thats all time consuming and expensive. This also has the PCIE riser cable, and USB type C header and cable all which need to be pretty high-quality cable to work proper and add cost. All in all I'd say its a pretty good deal if the pictures do it justice.

That would actually look pretty sick and would be a legit PS5 killer.

Initial impressions: excited for a low-profile 4K home theatre upgrade. A nice build aesthetic to sit below our floating 60" tele....... $250 asking price - excitement wrecker!!

Any alternative ~$120/£100 similar options with those fancy legs?

So this is a not so cheap copy of Cryorig Taku case without convenient slide out tray.
This is significantly larger which gives you some options not available for the Taku: triple slot card support, additional clearance for CPU downdraft cooler and/or space for a radiator. In terms of price, yes it's expensive, but to be expected since it's a niche and most likely very low-volume product line.

As for it being a 'copy' of the Taku, I guess if you're considering the fact that they're both horizontal flat slabs, I guess... But I think the similarities are fairly superficial. Not having a slide-out tray is a plus, not a drawback in my opinion, since the whole top plate comes off, and you get full unfettered access to the whole case (as well as the back of the motherboard, owing to the open nature of the bottom plate).

Looks okay! Damn i remember the days back when the push for HTPCs was hard! Had an Abit Digidice myself. Made som HTPCs simular to the on showed; only difference was that the GPU was limited and the mobo was forced, and temps was horrendous :D My digidice had to be taken the lid of during lan to make sure I did not crash during clutches! :p

It's called "Mid-century Modern" and is "in" right now.

Red power LED: I strongly agree with Raijintek's decision here. Red is the least-conspicuous LED color, which is important in an HTPC. Honestly, I'd love to see more status LEDs return to red. And fewer of them blink.

Both cases are targeting same use case of using it as monitor desk stands more than being just horizontal slabs. Given Taku is few years old and 3 Slot GPUs were restricted to flagship customs cards compared to today when even mid-range cards are 3 slot cards, Cryorig did make a reasonable compromise on design. I live in a very dusty place(Deccan plateau) and having that slide out tray means I dont have to remove the monitor from top of case everytime I want to clean my PC(which is once every 2 weeks during dry season).

Damn that runs hot :eek:

No chance of me ever buying this, even if it was $50 let alone $250 for a box to toast your components in.!

23.23 inches wide? I had to check this fact because I wrongly assumed a typographical error.

This has ZERO chance of passing the wife test.

At this size, why stop at MITX?

Was this released this month on the 1st?

Why no ODD?

Pan Slim ... Yes it will get panned, and IMNSHO it has a slim chance of sales success?

Looks like somebody clever could get a dual 240 rad setup with a waterblocked GPU. Could be a sleeper!
