Raijintek Pan Slim mini-ITX HTPC Case Review

There’s been a drastic shift in the PC market over the last ten years, a few of them actually. Once upon a time, mini-ITX was king, with everyone trying to build more compact and portable battle stations, then things got big again, really big. Now it’s all tempered glass and RGB. However, the trend I miss the most is HTPC. When I first started reviewing cases, they were pretty common. SilverStone, Lian Li, Fractal Design, and many more offered slim and wide cases suitable to go under a monitor or TV cabinet. Thankfully, Raijintek is here to save the day for the dozens of us who still desire this unique form factor. Gaming in the living room, an all-in-one multimedia build, and beyond.

Raijintek Pan Slim

While this is a mini-ITX case, don’t be fooled, it’s still fairly large. It opts for a wider design, though, meaning it’s about as tall and deep as a decent AV receiver, but about 50% wider. This means it has room for larger graphics cards, some liquid cooling, a decent number of hard drives and an SFX PSU. Rather than just being a novelty form factor, it really looks like Raijintek has given us room to build a pretty serious system inside this. Rather than just a low-end HTPC, you could fit a competent gaming system or workstation build in here.

What Raijintek Had to Say

“The Raijintek Pan Slim combines simplicity, elegance, and functionality into one package. The Pan Slim has a unique form factor that is somewhere between an HTPC (home theatre PC) and traditional horizontal desktop PCs. Not only is this an eye-catching aesthetic but it can save desk space: the monitor can be placed on top while the keyboard can be hidden underneath when not in use.” – Raijintek

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
