IN WIN has kicked off its 30th birthday in a serious way, kicking off its Mod in Taiwan live modding competition. The company called upon eight teams from seven countries, gave them all a new IN WIN chassis, some pretty damn good hardware, and all the tools required to make the best custom PC they could in 24 hours - split across 3 x 8-hour days.
