This is another case that is coming out this week that we got a chance to take a look at during the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. In Win is officially launching their 901 Mini-ITX Case. This case is a smaller version of the 904 case and is made of aluminum and glass.
The case is made up of 4mm curved, hairline brushed aluminum with tinted, tempered glass panel sides. This gives it a very unique look. Internally, its wholly unique design uses space innovatively, including 20mm of side-space for cable management, a hidden slim-line optical drive-bay, magnetic aluminum fan filters and a rear cover that discretely hides cables protruding from the motherboards I/O panel and add-in cards. PC installation remains as easy as ever, with large thumbscrews, two EZ-Swap HDD modules, a removable 2.5” drive bay, rear or external-mounting for liquid cooling radiators and a motherboard tray cut-out for easy CPU cooler mounting.
Even though it accommodates the small mini-ITX form factor, there’s still support for high-powered hardware as internally the 901 can fit full-length (up to 30cm) graphics cards, large (up to 200mm) ATX power supplies and CPU heatsinks up to 130mm tall. Externally users can fit s 120mm liquid cooling radiators on the rear, in addition to the 90mm rear fan and 120mm bottom fans for internal cooling. Two front panel Super-Speed USB 3.0 connectors are included in addition to the 3.5mm headphone and microphone HD audio jacks.
Here is a shot of the 901 next to the 904 so you can see the size difference.
In Win is also announcing availability of its new 550W and 750W 80Plus Gold PSUs, ideally suited to match the 901 and 904 chassis respectively. With modular power connectors, three powerful 12V rails and one silent fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) 12cm cooling fan; both PSUs offer up to 0.99 active PFC with a full complement of protective standards including OCP, OVP, OPP, UVP and SCP. The flat, black modular cabling is an ideal match to the 901 and 904 chassis minimalist appeal.
For the North American market, the 901 will launch pre-bundled with 550W Gold PSU, followed by general world-wide availability for the PSUs in the coming months, adding to In Win’s growing range of high-quality power supplies.
