The Pandora ATX offers the same much-loved unique styling as the original Pandora - but with housing capabilities for full-sized hardware and a 360mm radiator, either in the top or the front. Conceived as a versatile base for DIY projects, it is designed to show off your hardware in a tasteful manner through its large side window. The front panel is like no other, with the wrap-around side panels covering parts of it, leaving only a sober glossy black front panel with an aluminum BitFenix logo on it. Power-users are catered for with plentiful cooling options, and dust filtering through the front and for the bottom-mounted power supply. The one-piece power cover is integrated with the motherboard tray for improved case rigidity, noise shielding and that all-important clean look, adding a shelf to show off your hardware. Cable management needs are taken into account with a 20mm cable clearance behind the motherboard tray, and power supplies up to 220mm are no match for the Pandora ATX.

The entire top of the case is vented which helps in natural heat dissipation. I use only SSD units for no added noise and less heat. 3.5mm analog microphone and headphone jacks as well as four USB connectors are conveniently located on top at the front. The power and reset buttons are large and located on opposite sides so you won't press the wrong one accidentally. The side of the case has a Plexiglas window so you can see inside and the panel is easily removed by taking out two thumbscrews on the back, but the removal sequence is not like most cases.Where you usually slide the panel backward, you must pop the forward edge out by pulling it away from the case. It takes some practice, but you get used to it.
The crème de la crème is the cool display on the front panel that you can add what you want, your own branding, so to speak. I've included a photo of mine. It's a unique feature.
Cons: The case is very narrow which may make cable management challenging -- a fully modular PSU is definitely recommended. It will accommodate a GPU less than 145mm tall, meaning most high end graphics cards will not fit. The case ships with only non-PWM fans. The front (top) panel has only two USB 3.0 ports.
Summary: Bitfenix has obviously put a lot of thought into designing the Pandora. If you're looking for a space-saving MicroATX case that is not a "cube", this is probably as good as it gets.
My major complaints are the wiring can be difficult, the LCD on the front is a lower quality and at different angles has wonky/washed out colors. Also, one thing to keep in mind is the graphics card points down so you don't see the "pretty" side of it with the fans, you end up looking at the back of the PCB.
Overall great case and would buy it again.
However, BitFenix has quite a few QC issues. I watched the review on the case, how they mentioned the rough finish on the edge of the aluminum. Mine did not have this issue, but two of the rivets completely missed the holes they needed to go in, which required me to drill them out and finish building without them.
LOL, ordered another one for a work of build and they put a screw straight through the top fans power cord.
