In Win 904 Case Review

When thinking about enthusiast cases there are handful of manufacturers who spring to mind immediately, such as long established companies like Antec, Cooler Master and Lian Li or more recent entrants to the marketplace such as Corsair. The latter proved a few years ago that with some very targeted design goals and an intention to build to a high standard that it was possible to really make an impact on the industry. Another company looking to do this, and one which is really looking to set its cases apart in terms of aesthetics and design is In Win. Today we take a look at their aluminium and tempered glass 904 case.

Packaging and Bundle

In Win package the 904 in a massive box which has a minimalist design and lists the key specifications of the unit. Inside we find the case suspended in foam and wrapped in a fabric bag to provide protection during shipping. Provided with the case we get a manual and the various screws and ties which will be useful during the install.

As we noted earlier in the review In Win have really attempted to stand out from the crowd with this case and that begins with the materials used. The top, front base and back are all a mix of 2 and 4mm aluminium, three sides of which are all one brushed metal sheet. Other than a little badge on the front and two rubber feet on the base all of the sides are completely blank which looks great and to achieve this our front panel ports have been moved to the left side. These are power button, status LED, 4x USB 3.0 and 2x 3.5mm audio in/out.

The case supports ATX and m-ATX boards and has dimensions of 490x192x490mm.

The sides of the case are single panes of tinted, tempered glass which are held in place by four thumb screws on each side. It is also possible on the sides to see the cut away section at the front edge which is the location of our optical drive bay and intake fan.

At the back of the case we see that this chassis has a large aluminium panel held in place by four thumb screws. The perforated section at the top has two uses. First is ventilation and second is a location to mount 12/14cm radiators for liquid cooling.We can also see a slot at the top and larger cut out at the base for us to pass our wiring through as the motherboard, card (8 slot) and PSU (up to 180mm) connectors are all located inside this back panel.
