InWin 309 Case Review

A Look Inside

Getting inside we have a very simple design. The thing that sticks out immediately are the four included InWin Aurora EGO 120 aRGB fans. These fans feature 16 aRGB LED’s and have a white diffused frame. The best thing about these fans is that they are already pre-installed and wired up so you don’t have to do anything to get them running except plug in a single PWM cable.

The main motherboard tray supports motherboards up to ATX and towards the front we can see the two 2.5-inch hard drive mounts. There is actually room for a third, but it is not included with the case. These trays use a captive thumbscrew to be held in place, which means they are easily removable.

The entire bottom of the case is ventilated, which should give you an idea of how the cooling is setup in this case. You would have fans installed at the bottom bringing air into the case, then the 4 pre-installed fans at the top of the case will exhaust the hot air. The bottom of the case supports three 120 mm fans or radiators up to 360 mm. The three fans at the top of the case sit on a ventilated section which also supports three 120 mm fans and radiators up to 360mm.

Taking the opposite side panel off the case we get an idea of how the rest of the case is laid out. The top section of the case is where you’ll install your power supply and you can see how the pre-installed fans will exhaust through this section to the ventilated section in the back side panel.

On the backside of the motherboard tray there are two removable hard drive mounts. These trays support either a single 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch hard drive each. So in total this case will support 4 hard drives by default, and if you buy an extra SSD mount you can get five inside.

As far as space between the motherboard tray and back of the case you have about an inch of space, which should be more than enough. InWin has also carefully cut holes in the top part of the case to make it easy to route the cables from your power supply.
