    Bang tidy. Fans are no big loss, as they would usually get replaced any way.

    Nah, we are so spoilt for choice with cases we would forget in 5 minutes flat if you revealed every upcoming case for the next five years in detail.

    In Win has SFX PSUs now so I hope they have plans to do a new mini-ITX case that ditches that huge ATX chamber up top - even the 301 could be easily modified for this and made smaller. I know ITX is still niche, but since when did In Win care about that? The 901 was a gorgeous little case but it was all wrong inside - next to no all-in-one liquid cooler or water-cooling support and a huge amount of wasted space. It was too expensive given these shortcomings - if you're spending upwards of £100 on an ITX case, you're almost certainly going to want to water-cool it.

    This. I already know what I am going to be doing with this when I get it... Chopping out the PSU and banging an SFX in it, creating a little more rad space, dropping to an ITX mobo to fit in everything I want.... nom.

    Thanks bit-tech for being prompt.
    my plan: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sp4rky/saved/#view=3BsgsY
    yup, going SFX in the top chamber... and planning a 2 rad CPU GPU loop...

    The 3 o 1 is in stock here in Hong Kong, just waiting for those pesky mATX AM4 X370 boards - seems a lot of attention bringing out even more Z270 boards, which seems unnecessary! Maybe someone in the know can share the love some on Ryzen board plans for the compact crowd, with Computex round the corner...



    Qs: - can bit-tech tell us if those bottom intakes would squeeze in 140mm fans (with 120mm fan hole mounts like the Noctua NF-P14R-REDUX-1500-PWM)?

    cheers, Sparky

    Likewise, can a 240 rad fit on the bottom? Especially in conjunction with a 240 rad at the front.

    Thanks.

    The case is designed for intake fans in bottom, and exhaust fans in front, pushing air out the side through the hex pattern. You can see an illustration on InWins product site. Can you test with that configuration? This review really tells us nothing about the case's cooling capacity.
