In-Win, a Taiwanese manufacturer which we know is capable of making some very impressive enclosures, has announced two new cases, the 703 and the 707. The 703 is a mid-tower unit, while the 707 features a full-tower design.
Inside the 703, you'll find room for Micro-ATX and ATX motherboards, as well as room for graphics cards up to 408 mm long and CPU coolers up to 170 mm tall. There is also space for up to four 3.5" or 2.5" drives, two additional 2.5" drives, and three 5.25" bays. Two of these optical drive bays are not accessible from outside, though, so we're not exactly sure what purpose they serve. The case also has room for up to four 120 mm fans, and it ships with one red LED-lit fan.
The highlight of the 703 isn't what it can house, though, but rather the way it looks. It is built using mostly SECC steel, but it also has some red accents, a brushed aluminum front panel, and an acrylic side window. It'll also be available in a white variant with black accents.
If you're happy with the way the 703 looks, but you want a little more room for hardware, In-Win built the 707 for you. This enclosure features the same looks, but it's a bigger full-tower design. Inside, there is room for up to E-ATX motherboards and four dual-slot graphics cards up to 365 mm long. It will also accommodate up to eight 3.5" or 2.5" drives, along with three 5.25" bays, two of which are accessible from the outside behind a door.
The 707 will come in Gaming Black and Silent White. The Gaming Black variant comes with an acrylic side window on the left side panel and a small mesh on the right panel, while the Silent White version will have sound dampening material on both sides. Therefore, CPU coolers can be up to 206 mm tall in the Gaming Black variant, while the Silent White model is a little more restricting with a maximum height of 190 mm -- not that many coolers reach 190 mm anyway.
Furthermore, there is room for two 140 mm front fans, one rear 140 mm fan, three top 120 mm fans (with 360 mm radiator support), two bottom 120 or 140 mm fans (with 240 mm radiator support), and an internal fan over the hard drive cage that's either 120 or 140 mm in size. The Gaming Black variant has room for an additional 120 mm or 140 mm side fan.
In-Win has not revealed pricing or availability yet, but something tells us that these won't be the cheapest of cases.

These are ugly, "I too" boxes that should never be purchased except to sledgehammer into rubble.
