Well, In Win
’s gone and done it: They’ve created the most beautiful computer case ever. The “tou” concept case is on display at Computex, and to say that the glass-and-aluminum chassis is eye-catching would be an understatement.
“tou” apparently means “transparent” in Mandarin, which is fitting, because the case’s 3mm tempered glass panels,which are mounted on an aluminum structure, are translucent--even moreso if the LEDs inside are lit up to partially reveal the components.

The tou is an full-tower case supporting ATX
motherboards, and it features a single 5.25-inch external drive bay and three 3.5-inch and two 2.5-inch bays. There are seven expansion slots with 380mm of clearance for a graphics card, and the front panel houses two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio jacks. There are three top-mounted 120mm fans as well as a 120mm front fan, and the tou also supports a 240-360mm radiator for a liquid cooling system.
This is still a concept design, so there’s no price tag, but the tou will likely fall in step with In Win’s other recent edgy case designs, the D-Frame
