Summary: The Xigmatek Pantheon has excellent cooling performance. The fan controller can be fine tuned to suit any user's needs.
One of my favorite things on the Pantheon had to be the design of the fan controller.
Pros: Adjustable Fan Controller, Good Cable Management, USB 3.0 Front Port, Two Hot Swap HDD Bays, Expandable Support On Top, Excellent Cooling, Complete Tool Free Design, TOP 240mm/280mm Radiator Support (Liquid Cooling Ready), Front Loading HDD Bays, Tool Free Design, Motherboard Tray Cut Out
Excerpt: Xigmatek’s Pantheon chassis is a really nice case, especially for the money. For around a hundred bucks you get a distinctive look, excellent tool-free solutions and a rich feature set that makes the Pantheon a very good value, even in this crowded pricepoint.
Conclusion: At its 79.90EUR price point I believe this case offers a lot of bang per buck. You get a lot of great features, including tool-free installation, storage trays for both HDDs and SSDs, a quite roomy interior, some nice LED fans with two fan controller dials, good watercooling support, hotswap support...
Summary: I hardly review any cases, as most cases are sort of look alikes. With most mid tower sized cases biggest draw back is the lacking space for bigger cards or failure to mount any decent watercooling gear. For the purist almost no cable management is possible or lacking other features thereof.
Summary: Xigmatek is known for offering products with an excellent price performance ratio. While the Asgard and Asgard II aim to give you good and functional enclosures at an incredibly low price point, the Utgard ventured further, offering extended functionality with an interesting price tag.
Pros: Excellent price /performance, Three LED equipped fans included, Two hot-swap bays, All hard drive bays easily accessible through the front, Excellent cable management possibilities, Plenty of space for water cooling, Spacious interior, USB 3.0 connectivity, Large opening in the mainboard tray, Ca...
Cons: Hot-Swap connectors could be of better quality, You will loose LED feature if you replace the fans, Very long USB 3.0 cable, no adapter for USB 2.0 header included, Understated design may not be for everyone
Conclusion: Mais uma vez, a Xigmatek lançou um produto que apresenta uma excelente relação preço/qualidade, com várias funções, e um visual bastante interessante. A Xigmatek não só tenta redefinir a qualidade e funções dos chassis sub 100 Euros, como consegue colocar-se num patamar acima destes.
Conclusion: Insgesamt hat sich das Xigmatek Pantheon im Test gut geschlagen und gibt nicht viele Gründe zur Beanstandung. Auf ganzer Linie überzeugen die Features, wie USB 3.0, Hot-Swap-SATA und die Funktionalität beim Einbau der Hardware.
