Bold styling and unique design elements are something we have come to expect from IN WIN. They like to think "outside the box" and push the bar to new heights both internally inside the company, and also to better the competition. It only makes sense that if one company can come up with a great idea and concept, that other manufacturers will devise their own method of incorporating similar features. In the end this makes things much better for the consumer, as we are seeing quite a few smaller chassis' offering a scaled down version of what a lot of the $200 cases can offer.
Living on campus or in a small room in your parent's house can have its "special dilemmas". In such situations, even though your wallet can support a top end system, that's not to say you have the room to house let's say the 800D or HAF-X. Well, in order to save space, right off the bat you start shopping for m-ATX boards with tons of options and Crossfire or SLI support. Then comes the choice of what to house it in. Now things like room for graphics cards and wire management come into play, as most small cases tend to be tight, warm and usually pretty plain to look at.
I don't want to mislead you; the case we are about to see isn't in competition with cases like I mentioned; they were just for a size reference. Cases more apt to be good for a head to head look are ones like the Vulcan, where size overall matters, but you want the room to still pack the power inside. Currently this chassis is being displayed at Computex and isn't yet ready for sale, but is expected to do just that very soon. For those of you at Computex, make your way to IN WIN's displays to see for yourself. For those of us without the luxury to fly halfway around the globe, get ready to see the Dragon Slayer right here at TweakTown!
