Cooling Options

As usual we've fitted a traritional air cooler into the case.  With just 156mm of space there isn't loads of room, but it should be enough for all but the largest Noctuas etc.

The front bracket is removable allowing for 120-140mm fans and up to 240-280mm radiators to be mounted.  There's ample depth interior to the bracket to allow for even the thickest rads on the market but do bear in mind that you'll be not only shortening the maximum 320mm for your GPU, but also obscuring the cable manangement holes

We do think the bracket sets off the radiator well though, making it look more of an integrated part of the case as opposed to just something hanging there.  Our only word of warning would be that it is a bit of a stretch from the front of the case to the CPU, causing our tubes to be pulled in a direction they weren't really designed to.  The only other thing we really have to say before we head over to the conclusion is that we happened to notice that when viewed from this angle the IN WIN logo appeared to say NIM NI.  Unfortunately, once seen, it can't be unseen

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
