    Xigmatek has managed to impress with their past cases, offering a nearly unbeaten price/performance ratio. The new Pantheon aims to redefine this once more, offering modern features at a very competitive price point. Will it manage to hold its own or crumble on our test bench?

    Great review, the case looks sexy and for 79 Euro's that's about $108 USD. Does CaseKing deliver to USA?

    Very nice review. Not a bad looking case with nice options for the price

    nice review, looks like another good budget casing to recommend to some...

    just one small thing though, in your review, you mentioned that xigmatek is starting to move away from their signature orange to white led lighting. Actually xigmatek has been using white leds since they started making fans if i am not mistaken, its their fan blades that are orange, not their leds

    Wait so users can't installed two fans on the side panel to direct air into the interior?

    shame cooler master didn't do the fans on the side for the cm 690II
    although i can't understand why xigmatech didn't make them central to the intakes :ohwell:

    From the front it is almost identical to CM 690 II.

    Nice case - nice review.

    The inside is all where it's at with this case.
    Have to like the HDD fans and the rubber seals where the cables go through.
    The outside is not to my taste

    Oh hell yes, this is perfect for a customer's build that I'm planning right now! Hot-swap bays, USB 3.0, eSata, large, clean-looking, good airflow, fan controller, good cable management . . . all at an affordable price. This guy will love it for his new workstation!

    Great review and thanks a bunch for alerting me to this great case :toast:

    Just thought some of you might like to know that, according to Xigmatek (I just called and asked), this should be available in the US sometime around Jan~Feb.
