    Auto-venting is a gimmick.
    It should be venting as best as it can be all the time, rather than some of the time.
    If it opening is a solution to the cooling, then that shows it being closed is actually hurting it, and if that isn't in any way going to resolve the cooling then not only is that un-necessary but you then have big problems.
    Either way, the vent isn't doing what it is supposed to be doing.

    I dont know, to me I prefer a silent system which is why I watercool but it would make it even quieter if I could close off the top vents while im just idling or doing small tasks i.e not gaming or high computational stuff. This may seem like a gimmick but if its done right it could be really nice, would like this to be a normal feature!

    Overall this chassis weighs a considerable 16.4kg
    Touch too heavy for my liking..

    Re: In Win launches 915 chassis with motorised top vent

    I like it, perhaps weirdly my biggest concern is how tall and thin it seems to be, and with a weight like that... one knock and you're in trouble, surely? Spooks me.

    Edit: where does the airflow originate? Solely from the bottom, on the other side of the PSU shroud? Can't imagine it being very effective.

    That would be like saying the fans should be at 100% all the time, rather than some of the time.
