Case Build & Finished Product

Once the build is completed and we make our way back to the front of the chassis, we are pleased to see that nothing has changed. We still see the sleek and sophisticated simplicity that In Win offers right out of the box.

Installing the motherboard and video card is as easy as can be in the In Win 101, and while only two screws are securing the AIO, we were able to fit a 280mm radiator on the floor. The cable routing holes are placed well, and the finished product is clean and attractive to look at.

The PSU slides into place without much fuss, but the rear I/O cover isn't locked into place, it slides up and down, which can cause a slight slowdown in placing the motherboard into the chassis while you align it. As for the card, it aligns without needing for flex the chassis and sits level as expected.

Behind the motherboard tray, since we used cable extensions, we did have to get creative with the tie points, but even so, we were able to manage. Wiring is kept to the right of the fan locations to the left, and we found lots of room by the PSU to tuck in excess wires.

Now that the chassis is all back together, and we stepped back to take it all in, we like what we are seeing. The window is tinted slightly, but not enough to keep us from seeing inside of the chassis and looking at all of the main components.

Adding the power cable to the PSU and pressing the power button brings the In Win 101 to life. The front of the chassis begins to glow with red LED light in the clear plastic section, and is attractive without being flashy or gaudy in appearance.

Our last image of the In Win 101 shows that once powered, the LED lighting on the memory, the head unit, the motherboard, as well as on the side of the video card are all clearly visible. Many may want to add some interior chassis lighting to improve upon the view of the internal components, but we have no complaints about what we are seeing.
