Inside The IN WIN Dragon Slayer Micro-ATX Case
With the door panel off we can finally glance into the heart of the Dragon Slayer. Most notably missing is the typical full length of bay drives. On one hand, rarely do we use them all, and secondly, it makes for a huge area to allow for long graphics cards.
In the front there is a 5.25" drive bay and a 3.5" bay hanging just under it, both utilizing tool-less clips to mount the devices. Then there is the large void and at the bottom of it, there is a 140mm fan to blow air directly into the cards intake. At the bottom is a removable cage that allows for 3.5" drives to be installed, and if removed will allow for 5.25" devices to be placed there as well. The options are endless for a single hard drive and single optical drive setup.
The motherboard tray has holes in all the right places and you will see wiring is made simple a bit later. Even though it only supports m-ATX motherboards, there is a serious hole for access to the back plates. In the top you can see the 140mm fan and the 90mm in the back. The five expansion slots just above the PSU are tool-less as well, but still offer room for a screw if you see one is necessary.
Around the back you can see a good sized offset of the tray from the door panel. This will allow for all extra wires to be routed through here and hidden, as to improve the ability of the fans air flow inside the chassis. The venting in the door panel lines up with the venting in the bottom drive bays; and the fan in that cage can cause a draft of air to come in.
Three long tabs wrap around the front of the steel body and when released, the front bezel can be removed. The front I/O wiring is attached, so be careful, but the switches and lighting are mounted to the frame and stay out of the way. At the very bottom, we get our first look at the 90mm fan that cools the removable bay. In the bezel the three 5.25" and one 3.5" covers are removable with just a tab on each end holding them in place.
The front I/O wiring is quite long and will be no issue getting them connected. There are the audio connections just left of the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connectors. To the right you find the power LED (in 2-pin and 3-pin configuration), power switch, HDD LED and reset switch wires. The 4-pin Molex connection powers the blue LED logo on the front.
