The IN WIN Dragon Rider Full Tower Chassis
The front of the Dragon Rider looks like chainmail in the center, surrounded by Iron Age armor with design elements that look much like rivets. Standing out against the background, there is the IN WIN logo surrounded by three "fingers" that seem to wrap around the bezel to hold the logo in place. Above the logo there are five removable panels to allow access to the optical bay drives, and below the logo is the 120mm intake fan.
The front I/O panel has the Dragon Rider name in front of the power and reset buttons, and the HDD activity LED. Behind these there are the 3.5mm audio jacks, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connections, an IEEE 1394, and two e-SATA ports.
The left side sports a steel mesh panel that we have seen on other designs from IN WIN. The Dragon Rider has not only a 220mm fan attached to the mesh, but also offers the option to place up to six 120mm fans of your choice.
Just to the right of the mesh insert, IN WIN placed a two position switch that will allow the LEDs in the 220mm fan to function, or not.
The rear of the chassis starts at the top with a ventilated area that houses four grommets for both water cooling, as well as passing the USB 3.0 cables through. Moving down, you then run into the rear I/O and the 120mm rear exhaust fan. Moving down some more, we run into the eight expansion slots. There isn't any ventilation next to the cards because the tool-less assembly takes up the room internally. That leaves the large hole at the bottom to house the power supply of your choice.
The right door panel has a couple of features worth mentioning. First, let's cover the large bump in the panel. This allows for much more room behind the motherboard tray to hide wiring. Then there is the 120mm fan behind the mesh. This fan blows directly at the CPU access hole in the motherboard tray and will keep not only the motherboard cool, it will lower socket temperatures as well.
Under the Dragon Rider you will find a large ventilated area that has a filter on the inside of the chassis and allows for a power supply to draw in cooler, clean air if you install it with the fan facing down. To support the chassis, IN WIN uses these swiveling "duck feet". There are two rubber pads for each of the feet, and whether they are turned in or twisted out to the sides, they offer a sound footing for this full tower chassis.
