I don’t think there has been a time where I’ve been so impressed with a Micro-ATX case. I saw this case on In Win’s website and in their press releases and thought it looked cool, but until I got my hands on it I did not realize just how elegant it was. Every time I look over at it I am in awe of the clean lines and how it just looks perfect sitting there. There are only a few cases that I can remember that have given me that feeling. And I have to say it is pretty awesome to have your build inside of such an elegant case.
This case is small, definitely one of the smallest tower-style cases we’ve ever reviewed, but I was surprised at what can fit inside. You have room for long graphics cards, full ATX power supplies, and even watercooling. On top of that the cable management was actually quite easy. I’ve reviewed my fair share of small cases and the one thing that I always dread with them is the cable management, but with the 301 it was a breeze, and I only used two cable ties!
Adding two the elegance of this case is the tinted tempered glass side panel. It is actually great to see tempered glass on a case this small. In Win’s implementation of the side panel is one of the best I’ve seen as well. Just press down on a button at the top center of the panel and it will release. This means you really don’t even have to touch the glass part of the panel at all, which means no fingerprints!
There really is not much to not like about this case. If anything there are no fans included with the case, which is a bit of a disappointment.
This is one of my favorite cases of 2017 for sure and if you are building a Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX system this is definitely a case I would recommend. Right now you can pick up this case at our favorite online retailer for $69.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the In Win 301 case a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
