Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Maelstrom isn't as bold as the X-fighter we looked at, but does offer its own flash. The majority of the chassis is built from SECC steel and painted externally with a textured black finish. This finish is mimicked in the black plastic front panel that has large vent holes in the drive bay covers and holds two bolt green bars that stick out from the front panel. Structurally the chassis is sound for a full tower chassis and is ventilated at every turn. From the very open front mesh to the rear of the chassis, IN WIN tried to keep the chassis as "opened" as possible.
Cooling is handled in the Maelstrom out of the box with four fans. There are three 120mm fans; one placed in the top, another in the front and yet another in the rear for exhaust. Looking on site, it is tough to find any specs on any of the fans, but if I had to guess, I would say these fans run in the 70-80 CFM range and are quiet doing so. The 200mm fan placed in the door moves quite a bit of air and offers a good solution to through-the-door cooling. IN WIN didn't stop there, though. They left you with optional mounting holes that allow you to pick fans that best suit your needs, along with the placement of a total of up to six 120mm fans on this panel. Inside the Maelstrom you are greeted with an all black interior that utilizes tool-less bays for its 5 external and 6 internal drive bays.
Everything I have seen from IN WIN to date has been priced very well in the corresponding segments. Again IN WIN keeps pricing down with the Maelstrom full tower, from their "Destiny-Extreme Series" of cases. There is a more military based version of this chassis in the same series if camouflage is more your "thing". With our version of the Maelstrom, I located it for sale in quite a few locations, so obtaining one shouldn't be an issue, especially at some of the pricings I have seen currently. Right now, if you would like to purchase the Maelstrom, it is listed at Newegg for $109.99. Now, that is before you look at the fact that is has free shipping and a $20 mail-in rebate currently. That means the Maelstrom can be at your door for just about $90 total.
