The Dragon Rider has taken all of my preconceived notions I had about IN WIN and shoved them right back down my throat. Usually when I get my hands on a chassis from IN WIN, I'm left wanting more (or less) in the looks of the chassis designs. This chassis not only took bold styling and LED effects, but delivered it in an all black package that can make itself a place in anyone's home or dorm room. Finally, a chassis from IN WIN that I give my complete endorsement on, and will advise anyone in the market to take a closer look!
Internally the chassis is very large and has more than a sufficient amount of cooling, and even here they added a well placed fan behind the motherboard, that even in my limited testing with the Dragon Rider, the temperature difference of the socket itself dropped four degrees from what I am used to, at idle! - If the cooling inside the Dragon Rider is inadequate for your usage, there are always options to add another fan to the top of the chassis, or you can remove the 220mm fan from the door and replace it with six 120mm fans. If that sort of airflow doesn't cover your needs, I have to think it's because you live on or near the Equator.
All around the Dragon Rider I looked and looked for a reason to pick this chassis apart even the slightest bit, and in that quest I came up empty. This chassis has all the options of a $300 chassis, and even a couple of tricks like the SSD tray and the floppy drive adapter which get overlooked at things needed or wanted, but it's still nice to see them there. Even as I sit back and ponder what you get with the Dragon Rider as far as pricing is concerned, I have to say even in that category, I think IN WIN did a great job for the price.
I mentioned the MSRP of $159.99 as well as the listing at Newegg.com for $139.99 plus shipping. The real question at this point is how long are you going to fight the urge to buy this before you click on the "add to cart" at your favorite e-tailer?
