MSI goes bigger with its Pano PZ Plus case for backside power motherboards

The same but bigger.

MSI has officially announced an updated version of its MAG Pano PZ chassis series supporting larger motherboards. Once more you will be able to hide all your cables behind the board and enjoy a nice look at your build.

Available in black or white, the MAG Pano 100L PZ Plus case offers a 270° view of your components, which should look better now that they’re free of cables. Yep, like the regular MAG Pano M100R PZ we covered recently, the Pano 100L PZ Plus supports Project Zero motherboards that hide all connectors on the backside.

The Pano 100L PZ Plus series is scheduled for a May launch and should bring all the features found in its smaller sibling but bigger. In other words, you’ll find room for up to three 360mm radiators instead of one, plus ten 120mm fans – two of which you can swap for 160mm blowers. Not to forget a dedicated PSU compartment hidden away from view.

The Plus version is also compatible with larger E-ATX motherboards for those wanting additional ports and slots where the previous model maxed out at Micro-ATX format. This means that MSI or other brands are working on large Project Zero boards with more expansions for those who need them. Additionally, it allows you to choose between horizontal and vertical graphics card mounts.

While backside power motherboards are not yet widely available, limiting your choice, MSI doubling down on the design is reassuring. It suggests that this style will not go away any time soon. As someone who’s had enough fighting cables, I hope more brands join in.

Since the announcement was held in China (via WCCFTech), we don’t know the pricing yet or if MSI will bundle the chassis with compatible Project Zero boards. That said, this larger version will definitely cost more than the Pano M100R PZ’s £89.99 / £284.99 when bundled with B650M or B760M Project Zero motherboards.
