In Win’s 703 Mid Tower Chassis is today’s topic of discussion. Coming in on Amazon at $74.09, this case is a steal for under $100. This mid tower case is like a dapper suit for your components. It’s strong bold colours resonate the beauty and strength of this case. It comes in two colour patterns, a predominately black with red and white with black. Today we will be working with the black case.
BUILD AND DESIGN
A sturdy looking metallic black frame outlines the skeleton of this chassis. For a more in depth look we’ll attack the 703 side by side.
The front panel is an aluminum black hairline textured panel with a removable cover to house a 5.25” drive that is guarded by a thin red border. Directly above that you’ll notice ‘In Win’ tagged in their classic rounded font. In Win has kept the visuals and extras to a minimal when it comes to decorating this chassis, which in our opinion gives it a very professional look.
Atop the front panel in the red bordering you’ll see the chassis’ I/O panel, which consists of a one USB 3.0 powered by a single 20-pin header, two USB 2.0 ports and standard headphone and microphone jacks. Along the right edge at the top of the front panel when you are facing the chassis you’ll see the power button. The 703 doesn’t house a reset button, just in case you were on the search for it.
The two side panels are basically symmetrical minus the fact the starboard side has a large clear window so you can see the magic of your computer’s spinning fans and flashing LED’s.
Also, the In Win logo is again centered on the window. The two sides both have protruding panels that allow for more space inside and better cable management on the port side. When looking at the sides you’ll also notice along the front panel there are slotted holes that allow air flow into the panel, but we’ll keep that secret for a little later on when we get to the interior.
Looking at the rear of the 703 and starting at the bottom is the PSU bay which has two sets of mounting holes and makes it adaptable for PSU’s with up or down facing fans.
Working our way up, you’ll notice the seven PCI-E slots which is great, except you have to break open the side panel in order to make use of them which makes replacing them later on impossible if you happen to reconfigure or change anything. The only replaceable part in the expansion slot area is the main cover running up and down along the right edge of the slots which is held in place by a single screw and is more or less just to allow ease of installation and reinforce security of your graphics card, wifi card or whatever else you’d choose to install. Above that you’ll notice on the left the Motherboard I/O slot and to the right the fan grill which comes equipped with a 120 mm fan set to push air out the rear. Above that you’ll notice two rubber covered slots for external cooling access.
If you flip the case over you’ll notice two dust filters and been placed on the larger openings to prevent the majority of unwanted particles entering the chassis. Along with the four pegs that give the 703 about ¾” of height off any flat surface that makes up the exterior of In Win’s 703 Mid Tower.
