INWIN 805 Review

Instructions and Accessories 

The instructions are in the form of a large double sided fold out sheet, and although pictorially rich, are a bit confusing when it comes to finding the English language descriptions as everywhere you look appears to be Japanese script.  On the plus side, you do get a pro-gratis headphone hanger.  A useful and classy bity of kit in itself, we're just not sure we'd want to adhere it to the beautiful glass side panels of the 805.

OK, so the accessories come in a bag not a box, but just look at what you get.  For starters, all the necessary screws and fixings are separated out.  There's also a good amount of cable ties, although as we're previously noted, there aren't any cable tie points in the case.  You also get five self adhesive cable clips, which  although quite large, when closed, don't permit enough space in the gap for the larger cables found in a PC build.  As a nice little touch, and with an appreciation that the owner of the 805 is going to want to keep it looking immaculate, Inwin also include a glass polishing cloth.

Such a shame about the interior. It'd need alot of modding and (as you say) some sort of false floor to get up to scratch with the exterior. You could possibly squeeze a bigger rad upfront too with a couple of tweaks. I am still tempted by this case though, even if it would need alot of work to get close to what I need.Quote

Still love it. The outside is beautiful. The inside is a bit of an odd one but I'm sure it would look good once built. There are better internals out there - and a lot worse as well. I think the SSD's aren't actually supposed to be visible from the front (mobo) side but that's just my take on it.

Would be interesting to see if a blank sort of like a false floor could be mounted to cover the cable mess on the back side of the case. It could be coloured (or mirrored?) 2 or 3mm plexi or brushed aluminium or something. This could act as a shroud and cover the areas that are left looking a bit messy.

I think though the glass panel would act as a mirror anyway so you probably wouldn't see that much unless you had and LED strip in there, say to highlight your SSDs. Just thinking out loud but would be nice to see a shot of the other side of the built version with the panel mounted. I wonder how noticeable it actually is when the case is all closed.

All up though - nice review Gary Quote

I like this case. It (like my InWin 901 case) is classy looking and I'm sure that I could find a way to deal with the interior issues.
This may be a good case for my wife's next PC.Quote
