In Win GT1 Mid Tower Chassis Review

Complete System


Build time was almost 25 minutes for the GT1, I didn’t really hit upon any major issues throughout the build and as you can see, other than a few stay cables behind the motherboard, we have a fairly clean-looking build.

Airflow toward the back of the chassis is nice and clear and our GPU and CPU should be able to breathe quite nicely, no doubt in my mind that a multi-GPU configuration would do well in here, although I would install extra front air intake fans first.

The HDD bays are hardly feeling the strain of our single SSD drive, but for a chassis on this budget it is nice to see so much space for storage. The large cable routing cut-out next to the PSU is doing a great job too and there is easily enough room to install an extra 120mm fan on the base of the chassis, which would make good use of the dust filter on the underside of the chassis.

With the side panel back in place, you can see we have a nice clear view of the interior, although I can assure you that the view is even better than my camera can capture due to reflections. Also here you can see I’ve installed some of the red clip-in highlights on the front panel, I could have filled all the spots, but I thought that it would be more fun to demonstrate them by installing only a few. It’s nice to have a choice of an all black panel or black and red, although personally I rather like the extra touch of red.

Speaking of an extra touch of red, lets not forget the red LED fan tucked away in the back of the chassis, which lights up the interior rather nicely.

    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?
