In Win GT1 Mid Tower Chassis Review

by - 7 years ago



With the side panel removed we see that the chassis interior features the same black paint job as the exterior, giving a nice uniformed look, this is even more important given how clear the side panel window is. The motherboard back plate features a good size CPU cooler mounting cut-out, as well as risers for the motherboard. There are a couple of small cable routing holes on the right and the whole lower section is removed to allow for easy cable routing.


In the back we see that there is a clear plastic, but red LED 120mm exhaust fan. Below that we find a single reusable expansion slot cover, while the six below it are all of a snap-off design.


Three twist-lock mechanisms allow for quick and easy 5.25″ bay installations. There are six hard drive trays that slide out, each supporting either 2.5″ or 3.5″ drives and there are two extra spaces to screw a 2.5″ drive direct to the chassis, bringing the total to 8 HDD’s.


The top features two clip-in fan mounts, allowing for quick and easy fan installation, with both mounts each supporing a single 120mm fan.


The PSU is mounted on top of two rails that provide a little extra clearance for airflow, taking full advantage of the bottom mounted dust filter.


Around the other side we see that there is only 5mm of space for cable routing behind the motherboard, although this does increase behind the HDD bays to allow for SATA cables to be connected. There are quite a few cables for the front panel floating around and that is due to the chassis featuring three USB ports, a HDD bay and a fan controller on the front panel.


Behind the front panel you will find a single 120mm intake fan and dust filter near the bottom. There is room to install another 120mm fan here, although there is no extra dust filter present and that would have to be purchased separately.

    Would really get this casing If I can. Looks neat, well built and has nice features. Don’t really mind the snap off as I rarely and almost never change my GPU

    I suppose for the price & quality you really can’t complain if you are more ‘ostentatiously inclined’. It doesn’t look that bad but it’s just not my style and I’m annoyed to see USB 2.0 ports again. Seriously, how much more can USB 3.0 add to the cost. Those CPU cooling fans you’re using there Peter must be about the quietest (not to mention economical on power draw) on the market. 🙂

    I have 1 question. Can you rout the CPU power cable from behind?
