REVIEW

The PAN SLIM case has nicely designed exterior but that’s where the niceties end. The RAIJINTEK PAN SLIM is one of those cases where we are left feeling like the case maker (RAIJINTEK) said that’ll do, just that’ll do to everything. The case is missing important specifications and/or has limited/inaccurate specifications on the official product page.

RAIJINTEK is marketing the case as HTPC, however this couldn’t be more inappropriate. HTPC cases are inheritley small without standard GPU support. This is barley an ITX case at almost 40L (based on the dimensions on their official product page). The case has the capability to support upto ATX components (motherboard, PSU) but RAIJINTEK has chosen not to officially support ATX, but those with bit of knowhow in the modding arena could very easily make ATX work.

This case may leave many wondering why it is so large, with such raised/long case feet. Simple answer: it’s a PC case that you can sit your monitor on, but at around €200/£189, we wouldn’t recommend it unless you want plenty of cosmetic damage overtime on the top side of the case. This will dramatically reduce the cases resale value if you decide to sell it on in future.
