In Win has revealed a new chassis which it says represents “extreme simplicity” in design, utilising one-piece construction of 4mm hairline textured aluminium alloy with tinted tempered glass side panels. The In Win 904 premium mid-tower chassis complements its handsome looks with good support for PC hardware such as full sized ATX motherboards and high end graphics cards up to 360mm in length.

The new 904 chassis is a welcome addition to In Win’s range in that it was designed to be different but not outlandishly so. We have seen some very eye catching designs from In Win in the past but it was often the case of the design looking like it was different for the sake of being different. Also the previous very bold designs like the Tou and the D-Frame (HEXUS's review is here), would really dominate the room in which they were contained. The 904 is, as In Win says, simpler and more elegant from all angles.

In Win 904 Specifications:

  • Case Size: Mid Tower Chassis
  • Material: 4mm aluminium, tempered Glass sides
  • External Drive Bay: 5.25" x 1
  • Internal Drive Bay: 3.5" / 2.5" SATA HDD EZ-Swap Module x 3, 2.5" x 2
  • M/B Form Factor: ATX / Micro-ATX
  • Power Supply: ATX 12V, PSII and EPS Up to 180mm
  • I/O Port: USB3.0 x 4, HD Audio
  • Expansion Slot: PCI-E / PCI / AGP Slot x 8

  • Product Dimensions (H x W x D) : 490 x 192 x 490mm

In addition to the above mentioned specs In Win describes some more nice touches to the design of the 904 including; a “unique hidden 5.25-inch ODD design”. The ODD tray, if you decide to fit such a drive, ejects to the lower left of the machine, beneath the easy-reach I/O ports. In Win has also included an easy to service magnetic fan filter, shockproof feet and a simple symmetrical back panel to help minimise the back cabling eyesore.

The In Win 904 is priced at €179.90 / $243 with shipments expected to begin early in December.

That looks beautiful, but that extra back panel is going to make plugging in cables an absolute nightmare.

They've at least added plenty of USB slots on the side, but is everything else REALLY going to have to be routed through those little slots in the back panel? And force you to take the glass side off every time you want to unplug one?
Not too crazy about the location for a blu ray drive

Looks like you run them through the rectangle hole at the bottom of the back and up to the sockets, so it just groups all the cables together and low down. Quite neat I think.

Looks to me like the back panel unscrews separately, so you can (presumably) remove it to access all the rear ports. And I guess you could channel cables out either side or through the PSU vent cut out at the bottom. I guess it'll keep things neat behind your PC? Still, how often do you unplug your monitor, speakers, keyboard or mouse? Those are the only things I can think of that plug in the back of my PC nowadays…
It looks great, but I can't see much of a market. How many people who are dropping £150 on a case will then be happy with only a 90mm exhaust and 140 intake?
