3 out of 5 eggsOkay case

Pros: Detachable Drive Bay Cage made everything fit rather nicely in case. good air flow

Cons: the exhaust fan is on bottom of case which to doesn't make sense fan should be on top of case because heat rises. my 3.5 inch Internal Memory Card Reader doesn't seem to be completely flush in case. this model did not come with PPCT Excellent Thermal & Acoustic Solution and say's it does. most of the description on newegg about this case is wrong it really needs to be updated. no manual

Other Thoughts: at the end of the day i like the case works great so far.

5 out of 5 eggsFilled the bill perfectly

Pros: 2 front USB3 ports, fairly quiet power supply fan, easy to open case, clean design, no sharp internal knuckle cutters.

Cons: Case fan could be a little quieter.

Other Thoughts: Perfect fit for my 6-core FX6300 and a 140mm Scythe BIG Shuriken 2 rev B. Idles at 34C and never gets over 55C.

5 out of 5 eggsA good option, bought 2 for work

Pros: Solidly built case, cover comes off and on very easily without having to wrestle it back on. Despite its size it is fairly easy to work on and there are plenty of places to hide wires for a clean install. All the wires were long enough to keep the install clean. The option for horizontal or vertical orientation definitely influenced my decision as these are going in a remote facility and I'm not 100% sure which orientation will fit best in the limited space.

Cons: The lack of manual isn't a huge deal, except if you don't realize the entire hard drive chassis can swivel off, thereby opening up a ton of room to clean up your wiring. The case fan is loud and without a manual it's difficult to realize it only slides out once you've removed the hard drive chassis. Removing the plastic grill helped reduce the noise a bit but the ultimate solution will be a fan replacement

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Bishop,

Please contact us at We will send you a new fan as soon as we can. Thank yuou very much.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Reliable power supply. Good ventilation. Easy to work with. No reset switch (no need for these anymore). USB 3.0 front ports. Clean design.

Cons: The case is somewhat current with its front USB 3.0 ports, but then does not include a 2.5" drive mount option. It is time for an SSD mount in all cases.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased about 10 of these so far (and other variations of these cases over the years) and the most important factor to me when buying a case with an included power supply is that the power supply is reliable. If you cannot include a good PSU, do not include one at all. These power supplies have been solid. I have not had one fail yet and no DOA's either.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Solid feeling case, well built, no sharp corners. Lots of room inside for as thin as it is. Power supply is very quiet.

Cons: Case fan is exceptionally loud. It isn't faulty, just a small 3 wire fan in an otherwise quiet environment.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the case fan with a same size 4 wire fan from a CPU cooler, noise went from to-loud-to-have-in-the-room to silent. I'm a computer guy by trade and probably have more extra components laying around than most people so I must ding this case 1 Egg, even though I am extremely happy with it now.

Personal preference I would also suggest the green & pink audio jacks in the front are colored black in the next model as the case is a decent size for a HTPC and colored jacks look tacky next to all the expensive equipment.

The PSU is powering a G3258 with a SSD so I can't comment on how well it handles stress.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsNice Slim Case but Description is Lacking

Pros: - Compact case but not cramped inside
- Good build quality (adequate gauge steel, screws lined up with the holes)
- Smooth edges
- USB 3.0 on front panel
- Quiet

Cons: - No reset switch
- No instructions included and the pictographs on the one-sheet found on their website is pretty useless.
- No air filter included
- No "partition plate cooling technology" duct

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 of these for a client. Not a whole lot of selection out there for a case this size but the build quality on this is pretty good.

The title on the product page mentions it includes an air filter, however there was not one in the box (either one). The case fan does include a shroud over the fan which should make it fairly easy to make my own filter. Given the amount of ventilation holes in this case it will get dusty pretty fast without one.

I never did find the 2.5" drive bay listed in the Newegg specs.

The "screwless design" on the drive bays simply means the drives are held in place by friction (they do not lock in place). I chose to screw my drives in, however 3 out of the 4 bays only have one or two screw holes that are accessible and line up with the drives.

The Newegg Spec tab mentions the case is equipped with partition plate cooling technology. The In Win product page clarifies that this is simply an adjustable CPU fan duct. However the duct was not included in the box (either one), however, neither is it shown in the pictures on the Newegg product page.

Were it not for all the errors in the description I would have given it 4 stars.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sir or Madam,

We apologized for the confusion on the product description that have caused and we will revise the description at as soon as possible.

We valued your feedback to help us to improve our service, thank you!

Best Regards,

In Win customer service team

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, short power supply cable(s)

Pros: Solid case, easy to install drives with drive bay in/out easily. USB 3 on front/back. Case fan is quiet . I did call In Win prior to purchase, got friendly, knowledgeable support.

Cons: Limited (online only) documentation. Power supply cables could be a couple of inches longer to make easier reach to DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: In Win might consider making power cables a couple of inches longer.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: A very sturdy case with compact dimensions. This was the smallest micro ATX case I could find. I needed four expansion slots so I could not use a mini ITX unit.
I installed a larger capacity power supply (350W) which meant relocating the case fan. The detachable drive bay is very handy.

Cons: Might be a bit tight depending on how much stuff you want to add.

Other Thoughts: Makes a great workstation case. It's probably too small if you are a gamer needing serious graphics (I use the I7 on board graphics).

5 out of 5 eggsPleased with this case

Pros: Excellent Build Quality
Removable Drive bay for easy mounting
USB 3.0
Supports a standard Power Supply (TFX12v)

Cons: Did not come with Instruction manual. However everything is pretty straight forward.

Other Thoughts: Case feels sturdy and I really like the design of the case. I feel that I can reuse the case without any problems 5 years down the road when I upgrade the internals. The fan is a little loud but it doesn't bother me at all. Overall I would purchase again if I had to do over.

2 out of 5 eggsLoud...

Pros: USB 3.0, it's small, fits most of my stuff

Cons: This thing is LOUD inparticular the power supply at this price tag and to have to consider buying a Power Supply or a different case is ridiculous. Did I mention that it is loud?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

The power supply's noise range is from 23.5~35.5db. The loud noise that you are experiencing may be due to a possible defective power supply. To ensure that you will have a great experience with In-win products, we want to make sure you have a quiet working unit. Please contact our customer service dept at or call us at 909-348-0588. We strive to provide the best service we can, please do not hesitate to call at any time.
