    It's so strange seeing In Win kicking so much backside. I remember back in '99 we ordered in a load of their beige cases because they were Intel P4 certified haha.

    So much has changed since then. It's strange because for many years they made some truly tasteless cases, yet all of a sudden are knocking out masterpiece after masterpiece.

    Hurrah !

    Totally agree - one of the biggest turn arounds I've seen I think - literally plastic tat to OMG WANT.

    I got one! It's lovely. Except tempered glass needs handling with real care.

    It's their 30th anniversary this year, apparently some tasty stuff is coming up.

    Will there be room for an e-atx board in there? (26.4cm wide) It will probably cover the grommets but will it fit?
    The front seems a bit closed, without much airflow - will a 240 rad vent ok out of the front?
    Cheers

    From their site - should do: 12" is 30cm.
    M/B Form Factor ATX / Micro-ATX /Mini-ITX (Max: 12” x 10.5”)

    What board exactly? I've fitted an R5E.

    For the rad - depends how much airflow you're planning? I've got a 240 in there but the fans are set to very low airflow. There's about 0.5cm gap between the front glass plate and the grill, but behind it is about ~5cm of open space (where the In Win logo is on the front/side) so it's not fan directly onto grill+glass. I've found very reasonable temps, but it's certainly not an airflow centric design.

    Thanks.
    My board's a Gigabyte X99 Gaming 5P.
    I'll be planning on having my 240 rad fans on low for most of the time.

    Is the case reasonably quiet?

    'What board exactly? I've fitted an R5E.'
    Hmm, yours is bigger than mine so I should squeeze in.

    Cheers

    Nice looking case.

    I only use 2 fans on very low noise for the AIO cooler and I can't hear it sitting next to me.

    Do you have the AIO fans drawing air into the case or blowing hot air out?
    My first thought is to mount them blowing out but that will create negative air pressure.
    (Is this in itself a bad thing? Thinking in terms of dust)

    Blowing out. Tbh I enjoy the therapeutic clean out of dust + reorg the cables every so often.
    I'm gonna be replacing it with a semi-passive Grande Macho soon, so even less airflow.

    Thanks.
    There's presumably enough ventilation at the bottom of the case to supply the front and rear fans.
    I'll assume they were being post modern ironic when they named that cooler :)
