There isn't a single case out there that is exactly like another. Every case has its own upsides, and in some cases downsides. Cases are bought for looks especially and for many other reasons as well. When looking for a case, what features do you find important? I know for sure any good setup needs cooling and any good case at least needs to have good internal airflow. A case is not simply just a shell to protect your components - it must also keep them cool. Today I have for review a rather well-featured case from In Win. I must admit - each successive In Win case I have gotten has impressed me more and more with the features brought to the table and the Dragon Rider is no exception. The Dragon Rider comes standard packed to the limit with fans. Provided are a 200mm side intake and one 120mm fan for every other panel on the case including the top, front, and side panel opposite the 220mm side intake. All in all included are 4 fans. Of course, the list of features runs a lot further but this would just run on if I put it all in here, so read on.
Not only is the case well featured but from the get go, it is well represented on the box, which features rather good cover art of a Knight and Dragon as well as the case its self nestled in the bottom right hand corner. Next up though is the back of the box, which shows just the case by itself but from the other side which shows the 120mm side LED fan. Next up is the side of the box displaying the features and last up is the side of the box depicting the table of specifications.
Upon opening the box we are greeted by the front of the case which has been put in back first. On top on the left and right you can see the package of screws and hardware as well as another bag which contains something else very special to this case. As with some cases this one is sandwiched in between two pieces of foam packing material and it has been put inside a bag.
There is plenty yet left to see so why not move on and take a closer look.
