The In Win Metal Suit GD Mid Tower Chassis is part of In Win’s AL-13 series gaming cases. The Metal Suit GD name gives the chassis its design. The robot style design covers mainly just the front and side panel, but can be even followed on to the inside of the case. The GD features plenty of thermal solutions which should satisfy the needs of any gamer.
The front bezel, composed of plastic and steel, has a unique design. Six holes rest in the silver metal plate stretching horizontally taking up about a third of the case. These holes illuminate with a blue LED whenever the computer is turned on. The remaining two thirds of the bezel are covered with black plastic and silver stripes. Opening up the side panel reveals a plain black underside with four 5.25″ and two 3.5″ drive bays. The power and reset buttons are found near the bottom of the bezel.
Both of the side panels are black in color with the left side, from a front view, having a trapezoidal plate attached to it with a “c’ shaped filter. Towards the front bezel are the external access ports which include one Firewire, four USB, and HD audio/mic inputs. There is also a slight gap in between the door and the base of the case. The reason for this is the large hinges found on the opposite side of the door.
Moving onto the rear of the case is a typical setup. There are a few differences than the standard case however. One of these differences is the two large rubber holes found in the upper right hand corner for water cooling tubes. The other difference is that the expansion card slot covers are not in place; In Win provided them, but I’m not exactly sure why they aren’t attached.
