It has a good amount of space, it's very cheap, solid for the price, and looks awesome in my opinion. The fans do run a little slow, but at least there's airflow, and they are very quiet. It's very easy to upgrade them, and there's space for more fans too.
The IN WIN case looks like a good quality one, even though I personally think it's ugly. For minor overclocking it should have good enough airflow, and if you feel that you need more, you can always buy more fans.
10 80MM fans for $12.90 shipped... can't beat that! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You could mount 2 at the front by the hard drive bays, 2 on that side vent, and remove the side duct and put one there too! I don't think cooling will be an issue. If you like the case go for it!
What are you looking for? Mid Tower? Mini-Tower? HTPC? Would you like a side window? LEDs? A front door?
Thanks badge, I am just a little concerned about the cooling, other then that I like it, they have an orange and black one also.
The front panel is solid as opposed to mesh which is a major disadvantage as far as a 'cooling solution'. The front intake fan will make up for some of that, but it is near the bottom for the hard drives. That's good. But to get a useful airflow from front (intake) to back (exhaust) will be difficult and end up a weak central flow at best. No side fan (?), no roof fan like better designed cases. 120mm in the back helps a lot. If that were 80mm I would use an 80 to 120mm adapter. I have cases designed this way. I had to velcro an 80mm fan to the floor of the one Inwin case I own to keep my A8N32-SLI/4800X2 cool! I built with a micro e8400/G965/8600Gt/2 HDs/ 4 GBs RAM/Zalman 9500 and used a Coolermaster elite 340 micro case. Every fan in there including the Zalman 9500 except the 8600GT's is set to the lowest speed available. I used Antec Tri cool fans. That system is very quiet, only the video card is audible sitting at the desk. Cool too. So, with the hardware available today, it depends what you put in there that makes the system hot... Good price FS here, but I went with Newegg and the rebate.
I use seven or more of these, I lost count, on my systems. This is the 9500 and the review is using the 9700 (wider), so this will do the job. Great HSF, but if the fan goes out it's not so easy to replace. A smaller dimension PSU would ne nice when your thinking abiout space available to buiild.
I have a new one of these in the box. I wanted to use it. Looks like I may have to use a micro atx PSU if I'm gonaa do that with this case. Probably won't work in there. These type HSF's are easy to replace the fan. The Zalman 9500 will do fine and fit.
The Artic Cooler is a rear exhaust set up (fan blows to the rear or exhaust and heat is pulled out by the120mm exhaust fan in the case). It is a littlle smaller than the Zalman 9500. And the article uses the Zalman 9700, which is wider. be sure to install the Artic Cooler to the CPU/MB BEFORE you screw down the MB inside the case. I imagine the case with that AC gets a little challenged for building space before you are done.
A large fan like the AC offers would do real well sitting in the middle of the case. You can get even more air flow to the MB, under the video card, by velcroing an 80mm fan to the floor of the case. I have that done on this computer I'm using at the office. Works well when you just need a little more 'centralized; airflow and there is no side fan or roof fan.
In the absense of a side fan, I have two of these I use on my systems. These give airflow straight down on the MB over the RAM and other chips of the MB also, like the NB. They work pretty well if you need more airflow onto the MB. Starts to get far too noisy with all these fans.
