No gaming, home or office PC is complete without a monitor, and there’s never been more choice. Gamers can pick from sync-equipped screens with curved panels, while movie buffs can choose widescreen monitors with incredible colour accuracy.
There’s a PC monitor for every budget and scenario, which is why we’ve put together this guide to the technologies, resolutions and features on screens in 2016 – whether you’re after a cheap PC monitor or a mighty 4K gaming monitor.
We have expanded the BitFenix Pandora range today by introducing the all-new Pandora ATX. Following the same premium aesthetics with supreme functionality as the Pandora M-ATX. – The Pandora ATX offers the same desired unique styling combined with great capabilities for full sized ATX motherboards and one 360mm radiator, forming a great canvas for PC builders to be creative with a custom build project.
The Pandora ATX initially launches exclusively in black, with two versions available – Pandora ATX and Pandora ATX Core. The former is equipped with the 2.8” ICON LCD display in the front, allowing for an added personalised touch of the front fascia. This is achieved by an easy-to-use drag-and-drop software solution, with the display itself connected by a USB header to the motherboard.
Internally, the Pandora ATX stays true to the BitFenix DNA of innovation – this time mainly evident in the one-piece power cover design, effectively creating a separate bottom chamber for the PSU and HDDs at the bottom. This solution gives added space for exposure of hardware for modding projects, improves case rigidity and shields HDD and PSU noise.
Cooling is provided out of the box by the built-in 1x140mm (front) and 1x120mm (rear) fans, but the Pandora ATX is compatible with some pretty advanced watercooling builds. Supporting a 360mm radiator, top or front, and with dedicated brackets and supports for pumps and reservoirs, it makes for a truly dexterous base for any water cooling project.
In terms of expansion capabilities, the Pandora ATX comes with support for up to 440mm long graphics cards, 4x 2.5” SSDs and 4x 3.5” HDDs. Maximum PSU length is 220 mm, while CPU cooler height is a maximum of 160mm.
