INWIN (or IN-WIN or In Win, they’re really not that specific) has always made COMPUTEX their launchpad for new product designs alongside their extremely premium annual case release. This year isn’t any different with COMPUTEX debuting their newest Z-Frame chassis which looks more like an art piece alongside some new mainstream chassis designs as well as some we’ve seen from CES earlier this year. New products are also on display so let’s check them out.
The INWIN Z-Frame
By far the largest single-piece construction chassis I have ever seen in my life, this metal structure which resembles a spiraling mess of molten metal is made of solid aluminum and stands nearly 3 feet in height. It can accommodate a full-sized ATX motherboard and has space for a 360mm radiator on the upper segment. As with most Frame chassis from INWIN, the Z-Frame is offered in limited quantities and has a premium price. As of COMPUTEX 2018, there are only 3 Z-Frame in existence: a pair of metallic silver along with a gloss black model in INWIN’s booth and the other silver one with ASUS ROG. The INWIN Z-Frame is expected to have an SRP of $10,000.
NEW INWIN CHASSIS
One of the earlier released models which make their COMPUTEX debut is the INWIN A1. We currently have this for review but a quick highlight of its spec is that it comes with a built-in power supply (600w), a tempered glass side panel, a transparent base with RGB lighting support and a built-in wireless Qi charger on the top. The wireless charger is specially wired to the PSU and will work even when powered down.Here is our review build for the A1 featuring the INWIN Polaris RGB fan and some hefty specs with an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and a GTX 1060.
The INWIN 915 also appears at the COMPUTEX show floor. First seen in CES, this is a full-tower chassis featuring swinging, tempered glass panels as well as swinging front and rear cover panels. The case also features an automatic venting hatch on the top. A press of a button opens and closes the top vents which recedes on to the case. Opening the vents up gives more airflow for exhaust under heavy load.
For the more mainstream options we have a couple of new cases from INWIN as well. The INWIN 103 is a progression of the value-based series from INWIN. The INWIN 103 retains the same interior layout as the original INWIN 101 with a top-compartment for the PSU and HDDs. A side vent for the 2x120mm fans which can also mount a 240mm radiator max. The revisions are mostly centered around the styling of the case with new paint apps done on the front and glass panel.
Certainly the other scene stealer for INWIN is their new INWIN 307 chassis. While it resembles the new INWIN 305 in many aspects, the front panel is totally replaced with a 144-dot pixel display which can be controlled via INWIN’s GLOW software. You can design pixel art as well as animated effects on the panel and it also features a built-in microphone that reacts with external audio.
INWIN EGO FANSAnother product set for release from INWIN is their line of EGO fans. Featuring a solid-frame with RGB lighting, the INWIN EGO also feature a unique link connector for adjacent fans so wiring clutter is reduced. The solid frame gives the EGO fans a more frosted, glow and has more lighting on its surface area giving it a larger glow than traditional LED fans. INWIN will be selling accessories for the EGO fan including a remote control activator amongst others.
INWIN will also be releasing new power supplies including an illuminated model. The new CB (Classic Basic) model will be available in 750W and 850W capacities and feature an illuminated fan on the PSU. The power supply itself features a full-modular design and is 80 PLUS GOLD rated. The PSU fan is RGB-capable and is compatible with any motherboard RGB sync software.
