IN WIN 909 Full-Tower Case Preview

Cases & PSU/Cases by leeghoofd @ 2015-12-29

Last month we introduced the marvelous IN WIN 805 enclosure.  For those that are not familiar with this Taiwanese company here's a small snippet from the previous article: IN WIN is one of those manufacturers which really continues to innovate. Last year they stole the Computex show with their highly acclaimed S-Frame, an open air chassis made from a single sheet of aluminum. This year at Computex they surprised friend and foe again with the H-frame case -> compare it with a hydraulic operated transformer case. Many of their prototypes and retail products have won lots of awards at many international trade shows. If you want to house your precious hardware in a luxurious case, have a look at the IN WIN catalog. Today we are taking a look at one of their latest breath taking case solutions, the IN WIN 909 Full-tower case.

Alike its smaller brother, the 909 is a see-through skeleton case, though this time featured in a full blown full-tower chassis.  The IN WIN 909 is compatible with mITX to super-sized E-ATX motherboards. The case is build around a single 4mm aluminum brushed sheet. Both the side panels are composed of 5mm thick tinted tempered glass, allowing you to show off the installed hardware.

The IN WIN 909 is available in two versions, either the silver version featured in this article or a black anodized one with red front strip. Already from the first glance one can tell this is again another masterpiece combining elegance and aesthetics. Since this a preview article we didn't conduct any temperature testing and will just highlight the feature set, explore the innards and do a quick install of the MadShrimps Lab hardware to see if we encounter any anomaly.



The IN WIN company is not bothered with flashy box art, we can just inform you their enclosures are carefully packed and protected inside the maybe dull looking brown cardboard boxes. The case itself is protected by the Styrofoam inserts and neatly wrapped in a black cotton bag. No scratches or any damage were observed.




No matter how many pictures we took, they didn't do justice to the classy looks of the IN WIN 909, seeing is believing my dear readers. Once we remove the side panels we can get a clearer view on the internals of the full tower 909. Again the IN WIN engineers have deviated from standard designs and have put the storage on the top part of the case, The cooling options and support for optional water cooling are awesome, though again we have to stress not even a single fan is included with this high luxurious enclosure; a missed opportunity as at least two white LED Fans would have been welcome.
