IN WIN might not be the first name that comes to mind when you are looking for a new computer case, but they are a company that has been around since 1986 and since their introduction onto the scene they have become the leading provider of enclosure solutions to system integrators worldwide. IN WIN is also not just limited to the computer chassis market, they also produce power supplies and digital storage devices. In the last few years IN WIN has also been collecting a few awards for their products such as the 2008 iF product design award, 2009 red dot design award and just last month the IN WIN Maelstrom case was awarded the highly coveted OCC Silver award. So even though they might not be the first company that comes to mind for computer cases, they have a long history and a more than a few quality products under their belt.
Today we are going to be taking a look at the new IN WIN Fanqua. The Fanqua is designed to be a computer case that includes enough features to make demanding users happy and still come in at a very affordable price. IN WIN has named the case after six important features that they have incorporated into the design of the Fanqua. These features are Fan, Airflow, Neat, Quality, User-friendly and Affordable. When you look at some of the features the case offers you can really see that IN WIN has stayed true to the idea of Fanqua. The case includes four fans of which three are 120mm fans and the fourth is a huge 220mm LED fan found on the side panel. The case also includes dust filters, bottom mounted PSU, CPU back-plate access, tool-less design, a nice look and still manages to come in at $75. Putting the Fanqua in such a low price range could position the case to become quite a hot seller and even give some popular sub $100 cases a run for their money.
The Fanqua comes packaged in a large cardboard box. On the front of the box you see an image of the Fanqua surrounded by flames. Next to the image of the case IN WIN poses the question "What does Fanqua stand for?". Below the question they give the answer and an explanation of how the case has included the features of Fan, Airflow, Neat, Quality, User-friendly and Affordable. On the side of the box you get a list of the features and specifications of the case with a few images showing off some of the selling points.
The Fanqua comes secured in the box with two Styrofoam inserts on each side and surrounded with a thin plastic cover. The accessories included with the Fanqua consist of installation screws, standoffs, an extra rear expansion cover, two fan power adapters and the installation guide.
With the Fanqua out of the box we can now move on and get a closer look at the case.
