In Win's booth has a little pool at the front, with their logo right in the middle.
While it was certainly cool that they had a small pool in the middle of a convention hall, what was more interesting was that they had live fish swimming around inside!
On to the actual products. In Win has won several design awards for its cases, and it's clear why.
In Win had several cases on display, including a relatively compact home server model that can house up to four hard drives.
The one case that really caught my attention was the B2. It has an automated front door that opens and closes at the touch of a button (though as you can see, we were not allowed to do any touching).
The B2 sports something called the Smart-3D UniDuct system that improves airflow to the peripherals area, potentially increasing cooling of the video card. What's really neat is that you can swivel one of the fans out to add cooling to the hard drives, or simply cool the video card from another angle. For the newer video cards that suck in air from the front of the case and expel it out the back, having a fan blow fresh air right into the "intake" could really help with temperatures.
I was really surprised to see that In Win made power supplies. The representative told me that the power supplies provided with some cases are made by In Win itself as a means of ensuring quality. I've gotta admit, In Win just won some points on looking out for its customers like that.
Hidden in the back is In Win's flagship power supply line, the Commander series.
The Commander series covers a whole range of wattages, from 650w to 1500w, all while looking very cool (not to mention actually being cool as they happen to have 140mm fans in them).
