Video: In Win's H-Tower Chassis In Action

Play "Spot the Editor In Chief"

We've told you about In Win's H-Tower concept chassis, which it trotted out to tickle our eyeballs at Computex 2015.

It is ridiculous and impractical and fun, but you really have to see the transforming action yourself to fully enjoy it, and so here you go, dear readers: video of the H-Tower in action, with a shouted narration by an In Win rep. (It's amazingly loud on the show floor.)

Stay tuned to the Tom's Hardware newsfeed; we have a great many more posts coming out of Computex, including our awards for the show.

    Does not appear to have air filters? A series of good photos from different angles would be great.

    Its a very nice show piece but with a $2500 price tag and the case needing its own power supply it will only be a nice "show piece". I wont even touch on the dust issue.

    In the first image, you can see that the PC is water-cooled. Where is the pump mounted? You would think that the pump being rotated around like that could potentially cause some gravity-related issues.

    They have to keep something a secret

    worst customer experience ever with in-win. I waited close to 2 months for a response from their support with sending multiple emails to them.

    Best excuse, we are sorry we were in a state of transition.

    My response... I don't care.

    As beautiful of cases and peripherals that they make. They will never see a cent from me. Even Mad Catz as crappy customer service they have is light years ahead of the customer support from in-win.

    But is dust a performance issue when using full water-cooling (for both CPU and GPU), which is clearly what is needed for a computer case like this. Sure, dust won't look nice, but will it actually hinder any performance either?

    Then again, this is a tech show-off, and they said that they will tweak this some more. I guess they could do a more closed version of the case aswell. And what about it having an extra PSU? It's not like you need to have it plugged in, or active all the time either. It's when your friends are coming over, or when you do maintenance that it needs to be active.

    Dust in the radiators is a problem.

    Once dust build up in those radiators the performance will drop, not to mention how hard it is to clean out a radiator when fans are attached. The case requiring its own separate power supply is an issue because if your case power supply dies you wont be able to get into the computer until you replace that power supply

    There's most likely a way to open the case manually. I don't think they'd leave something so obvious as that out.
