InWin GRone Full-Tower Chassis Review (Page 1)

InWin went back to the drawing board, again, and gets really close to perfection in the GRone full-tower chassis. Enthusiasts, sit up and take notice.

Going back through the various cases I have seen from InWin over the years, you can definitely see an evolution of the company. What started off as really bold and uniquely designed cases, that in my opinion were a little beyond what the masses were willing to accept, the company has over the last year or so really taken large leaps to go a bit more mainstream for its latest enclosed chassis design. I want to be very specific to enclosed cases, only because of the ingenious X-Frame and H-Frame open air chassis, and its recent addition to the InWin fleet as well, but those are in a different league all together to what we are going to be looking at shortly.

The first few cases I saw were bold, had a few tool-less features, maybe offered native USB 3.0, but no matter what, the styling was made for young buyers with a lot of the fantasy designs and naming schemes they were applying at the time.

Then came the BUC, and for all intents and purposes, it was the first chassis design from InWin that I was sold on and thought that really anyone would actually enjoy that design. Even though I was sold on what InWin was finally bringing forth in chassis designs, with its latest entry, it goes well above and beyond what we expect in an InWin chassis.

The outlook for the latest chassis to arrive for testing is the full-tower GRone. The idea here was to really go way more mainstream with the external design, but still keeping that bold styling you expect from InWin, just used much more sparingly. On the inside is where they really shake things up and are attempting now to take on the enthusiasts in the market with a chassis that has all the latest features, and is completely water cooling ready as long as you don't mind changing some of the options inside of the chassis from the way it was shipped to your house.

That all being said, look at the GRone from InWin with an open mind, as it may very well be a case that has little reason to deny that it should be a considerable force to deal with in the full-tower market.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
