Case Build & Finished Product

Without the need to fill the 5.25" bay with a drive or reservoir, the front of the 509 is identical to when we started. The mix of brushed metal and the dark tinted glass is sleek and elegant and is a look we enjoy staring at.

For our build, we did opt to use the 2.5" drive bay which will show the SSD through the glass, and we even mounted our AIO on the inner support rails. We opted to remove the EZ-Swap bays, which does expose a large opening, but we are still very pleased with the finished product visible through the entire left side of the 509.

Fitment in the back of the 509 leaves us with nothing to complain about. The dust shield snapped right into place, the card aligns properly and is supported inside to fight sag, and even the PSU nearly falls into place and screws in without much fuss.

Behind the motherboard tray, we do have to be a bit more creative than usual. The tie points worked well to route the front I/O wires but left little anywhere else to manage the PSU wires. However, with the room there is here, we had no issues returning the panel to the chassis and closing it up.

From this angle, it is tough to see inside of the In Win 509, and we like that about this design. It helps keep that sleek elegance to the design and allows users to see only bright LEDs, or you can add all sorts of internal lighting and increase the view once the PC is powered.

Once powered, we can just make out the ZOTAC and Corsair names on the GPU and AIO, but there is no mistaking the logo and company name lit up on the front. The In Win name will always be white, but if the motherboard offers RGB control, the logo will run through colors matching the motherboard LED cycle.
