It is not often that you find a product that is as strikingly gorgeous as it is functional, especially when it takes the form of a PC chassis. As we introduced previously, INWIN recently released the 901 Mini-ITX PC Chassis, and we have the opportunity to take an in-depth look. At the same time, INWIN released the 904 ATX chassis to accommodate those who are looking to build a larger system. However, for those wishing for a chassis that parallels INWIN contemporary and innovate design model, the 904 Mini-ITX chassis is an excellent choice, as it’s small form factor is sleek and intriguing.
Now, before you comment on the position of the power supply in the above picture, it is important to note that INWIN specifies that the fan from the power supply point upwards rather than downwards. Let’s take a more in depth look at what else the INWIN 901 Mini-ITX PC Chassis has in store for us.
INWIN 901 MINI-ITX CHASSIS EXTERIOR
When first purchased, you will notice that the INWIN 901 Mini-ITX PC Chassis comes in a simple package, almost to elude you from the contents within.
Even when you open up the packaging, you are still kept in the dark as to how whether the INWIN 901 really looks as good as it sounds. The Mini-ITX PC Chassis is wrapped in a black cloth, rather than the stereotypical clear plastic wrapping.
The exterior of the chassis features a solid piece of 4mm thin aluminum that wraps itself around the interior’s metal framework. The side panels of the chassis are two panes of tinted tempered glass, which only adds to style just as tinting the windows of a sports car would. There are four large thumb screws that are on each of the corners of the glass that allows for quick access to your systems components.
The front of the case simply features the INWIN logo that glows white when the PC is powered on.
The rear of the chassis features an intriguing design, as there is a piece of the aluminum that separates from the chassis itself. This is where we mounted our 120mm liquid cooling radiator. The bottom features the standard opening for your power supply unit.
The backplate can be removed via the large screws that are at each corner. It is necessary to remove the backplate in order to install your liquid cooling radiator, with the help of some screws and large washers.
