The Kingwin KT-436BK-WM.
We have looked at cases similar to the Kingwin line in the past, but this is the first time that we have had a chance to review the KT-436BK-WM. John Roth from Central Ohio Computer felt so strongly about this case that he personally sent this case to our lab for review. His excuse was that he was curious as to how we would rate the Kingwin against the other cases that we review. Let's find out if the KT-436BK-WM makes the grade.

Inside the Kt-436BK-WM.
As many of you know, I have been using a cloned custom painted version of a case similar to the KT-436BK-WM for about a year, and I have a lot of first hand experience with this style of case.
