    News - In Win introduces aluminium and smoked glass 904 chassis

    Simple and elegant design hewn from a single piece of 4mm thick aluminium.

    That looks beautiful, but that extra back panel is going to make plugging in cables an absolute nightmare.

    They've at least added plenty of USB slots on the side, but is everything else REALLY going to have to be routed through those little slots in the back panel? And force you to take the glass side off every time you want to unplug one?

    Not too crazy about the location for a blu ray drive

    Looks like you run them through the rectangle hole at the bottom of the back and up to the sockets, so it just groups all the cables together and low down. Quite neat I think.

    Looks to me like the back panel unscrews separately, so you can (presumably) remove it to access all the rear ports. And I guess you could channel cables out either side or through the PSU vent cut out at the bottom. I guess it'll keep things neat behind your PC? Still, how often do you unplug your monitor, speakers, keyboard or mouse? Those are the only things I can think of that plug in the back of my PC nowadays...

    It looks great, but I can't see much of a market. How many people who are dropping £150 on a case will then be happy with only a 90mm exhaust and 140 intake?

    pretty, but zero noise suppression by the looks of it.

    Looks gorgeous but not very practical. Do I actually have to unscrew the window side panel every time I want to make use of the motherboard ports? The images seem to indicate such.

    I thought so at first but scaryjim pointed out the back panel should come off.

    It's true that most people rarely need to access the connectors, but still having to undo 4 screws every time or leave it off entirely is a bit of an inelegant and awkward solution.

    Although, if you have an external radiator fitted as shown in one of those pics, it would be impossible to remove the back panel without first removing the waterblock from the CPU.

    + 1 - my thoughts too. Only a 90mm exhaust fan and its airflow is obstructed.

    Aesthetically this is beautiful imho. I agree it may not be very practical. What I would love, would be a combination of this and the Corsair Carbide Series Air 540, i.e. a wider version with chamber side by side hiding most of the cables, psu and drives in the off side.

    lovely case.

    i'm fine with the cooling so long as all the input fans have filters.

    it said there was a magnetic fan filter for one of the 140mm's, what about the other?

    Very nice indeed. ~£150 doesn't seem too steep at all. Aimed at aesthetes, more than it is at those looking for the best technical case solution.
