Built upon the features and elements that made the predecessor 303 a success, the 305 features tool-less removable side panels and dust filter. To assist with airflow, In Win's latest chassis is capable of fitting 3x120mm fans at the top, 1x120mm fan in the rear and 3x120mm fans at the base. Rest assured there is still plenty of room for water cooling options, with 360mm radiator space at the top and bottom and 120mm at the rear, with plenty of space for pump/reservoir mounting in the front.
