Case Build & Finished Product

Once we placed all of our gear inside of the case, it was time to take another spin around it to see how it all plays out. As for the front of the 301, not a single thing has changed, but there is one to be had once we power this system.

All of the system we installed found its place, and even filling it as best as we could, there is still room to be had. When it comes to mounting all of the parts, we had no0 issues, but we did find the GPU support bracket cause our third fan to rub funny in the cooler, so we opted to leave it out.

We did have to dig out a smaller PSU to fit in the top of the chassis, but it mounts simply. We also tested a dust shield for the rear I/O and found no issues with fitment there. When it came to the video card, we found that the screws line up perfectly, and that is a great thing, as trying to flex this 1.2mm thick steel of the chassis is near impossible to do.

Using the smaller PSU, you are left with room at the top to tuck in the excess PSU wires, while the bulk of the chassis and PSU wires can be routed and contained down the left side. It also helps to explain why there is little room behind the motherboard tray because, with this layout, it is not needed in the slightest.

After reattaching the right side panel, and tilting the tempered glass panel into position, pressing the frame of the glass until the latch clicks, we were ready to have one of our final looks at the clean and sophisticated appearance of the In Win 301.

Once we powered the system up, the glow of red LEDs on the front panel is hard to miss. We can also see the LEDs from inside of the chassis through the tinted glass, and all in all, we have nothing to complain about with the way this looks.

 

As for noise levels, there are none by default. In Win does not supply a fan inside of this case, so the amount of noise the 301 makes for you, is solely based on the fans chosen to cool it.
