IN WIN BUC Mid Tower Chassis Review - The IN WIN BUC Mid Tower Case

We don't quite get the naming for the chassis, but we really like what the BUC had to offer. Let's have a look at this new mid tower chassis from IN WIN.

The IN WIN BUC Mid Tower Case

With all of the packing out of the way, you can see that IN WIN again kept the all black look of the Dragons. I won't get too deep into the details as I am about to go over them one by one.

The front of the BUC has an aggressive looking pair of protrusions. The three optical bay covers can be removed externally, along with the floppy drive cover in the middle band. At the bottom of the bezel there is a large mesh area to allow for the intake fan to draw air and gave IN WIN a place to put the backlit logo.

The front I/O is at the very top. It has USB 2.0 and audio jacks, along with the power and reset buttons that have activity LEDs incorporated into the sides of each button.

On the top you can see that carbon fiber-like design surrounding and on the floor of the catch all tray. In the middle of the back wall of the tray, that is where the USB 3.0 port is. Matching the front there is a thinner middle between the tray and the large vented area at the back to allow the included fan to exhaust through the mesh covering.

The left side has a large mesh area on the left that can be backed by a pair of 120mm fan, but they aren't included. On the right there is an IN WIN logo stamped into the panel, and of course the lockable access panel at the bottom. Both side panels use these tool-free locks. The rear panel is plain steel and is why I won't bother to show it.

The rear of the case has the USB 3.0 cable hanging out of the top of the chassis ready to plug into the rear I/O of any motherboard. Above the 120mm exhaust fan is a pair of hole with grommets for water cooling. Under it is the seven expansion slots and the hole for the bottom mounted PSU.
