    I suppose if you must go RGB the go big.

    It's so garish that I think I actually quite like it! Would be nice if you could play Snake on that front panel

    I normally hate over the top 'RGB' but I quite like this. Dynamic display of GPU/CPU temps as two colour bar charts? Its going to be massively overpriced anyway so I won't be buying one (I struggle to spend £50+ on a metal box).

    Big is not enough. You still need sensible styling, else it looks utter gack... like most of the RGB that Hexites famously despise.
    This is perhaps reasonable, if you're into early 1970s disco but have never seen a sci-fi programme... It's still a far cry from 1980s RGB heaven, though.

    Cake. It looks like cake. Battenberg cake.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Re: InWin 309 launched with 144 RGB LED 'dot matrix' front panel

    Front lights are a bit overkill for my liking, But I will definitely applaud them for putting buttons/ports on the side where we can actually access them sat at a desk.
    Please don't change that, Far too many cases with ports on top where you can't see and reach them without getting up.
    On the side or at the front like the old days, Function before looks!
    I don't understand who thinks up pc case designs lately, They make cases to show off so you have them on your desk to see lights/build through window, yet they put ports on top so you need to have the case on the ground to use them, But in doing that you can't show off your build.
    I would actually consider this for a build purely because it has ports where I can reach them,I hope other manufacturers get the message!
    Now make one without front led's and have 2x 140mm RGB fans not blocked by glass or weird plastic mould, Add 1x 5 1/4 bay at the top and it will sell like hot cakes.

    Re: InWin 309 launched with 144 RGB LED 'dot matrix' front panel

    Just a random related question, why aren't we seeing new mini cases being released? I mean do people really need full atx anymore? And no, I am not suggesting companies stop making full atx, just seems strange that it's almost 2020 and not many new mini's are being released.
