IN WIN Fanqua Review

Lowest Prices

Conclusion:

The Fanqua case really comes as a mixed bag. It has great cooling performance, quiet fans, CPU back-plate access, looks good and comes in at an attractive price point. On the other hand, installation can be difficult, the case quickly becomes cramped, the front panel has to be removed for HDD installation and the rear I/O expansion covers cannot be reused. All of this makes for a hard decision when it comes to a recommendation for the case. I guess the question is, 'do you spend a lot of time upgrading your components and working inside your case?' Or, 'do you install your parts, close it up and use it for long periods of time'? If you lean more toward the latter, then this case could be a great option for you and even save you some money over similar cases with similar features. If you are more like the first option though and often find yourself working inside your system installing the latest and greatest technologies on the market, you might be better served with a case that is easier to work in. Looking back at the qualities that IN WIN based the case on, you can see that they did a good job incorporating Fan, Airflow, Quality, and Affordability, but the case could use some improvement in the areas of User-friendly and Neat. Overall though, the Fanqua is a good case with a low price and one you should take a look at if you are in the market.
