In Win had a nice large booth over in the bottom section of the south hall. It had a large range of cases on display, ranging from the Mini-ATX form factor to the ATX form factor. Its booth did not stop there. In Win also had some of its external hard drive enclosures on display, along with a number of its power supply models.
The first thing that we took a look at was a few of its Mini-ATX cases. The Diva case is one of In Win's Ultra Small Form Factor cases that has its own built-in 120W PSU. The coolest feature of the Diva case was the fact that the power button on the front of the case is made out of a Swarovski Crystal that lights up via a LED. In Win also had the Wavy case on display, which also has a 120W PSU built in and an 80mm fan to cool down the internal components.
The Matrix Tiny Tower case was also on display and features a smart cable management design. It is made out of SECC ECO Steel with a pearly metallic painted plastic panel. The motherboard form factor for this case is also Micro-ATX and allows for a full height PCI-E expansion card.
Next up were the full tower cases. The main one that they were trying to show off was the Maelstrom, which is made out of 1.0-0.8mm SECC Steel to give you a sturdy chassis that is going to be able to hold your E-ATX, ATX, or Micro-ATX motherboards. In Win gives you four fans installed in the case right out of the box (3x 120mm and 1x 220mm), but you can add up to six more (1x 120mm and 5x 220mm). The other case pictured with the Maelstrom on the left hand side is the Fanqua, which can support up to nine drive bays! The Fanqua also supports 3x 120mm fans and a single 220mm fan, and gives you the option of installing either an ATX or a mATX motherboard. The Android case is another one of In Win's new cases that it was showing off, which is also a full tower case that is going to allow for nine external drive bays and three internal bays that are removable.
The next chassis that was on display was the Griffin. In Win had two of these cases displayed, both painted different colors. One had a more modern custom paint job, while the other is a simplistic yellow paint job that still looked good. Some of the features of the Griffin were that the case has high expansion capabilities, as well as hidden I/O expansion slots and gives you support for either an ATX or mATX motherboard. In Win also had another yellow painted Griffin case hooked up so that we could see what she looked like running. The next case that In Win had on display was its Concept case, which was a Micro-ATX gaming chassis that still supports a full-sized graphics card with HD audio connections on the front IO panel.
