High End Case Roundup: In Win, Lian-Li, & SilverStone

In Win H-Frame (continued)

At the end of the day, though, the case is mostly very easy to work on; there’s a decent amount of space inside for your hands and fingers, and the large openings between the metal plates make it easy to see what you’re doing.


The exterior design of the H-Frame is so flashy that it’s easy to overlook the ports and buttons built into the case, which include a pair of USB 3.0 ports, headphone and mic jacks, and reset and power buttons on the front, with a lone USB 2.0 port on top. The 5.25-inch drive slot is cleverly hidden on the front of the case; by making the bay slant at an angle to the ground, you actually can’t really see it unless you’re looking at it from below. Another nice feature is that the rubber feet on the bottom of the H-Frame absorb vibrations and keep the unit firmly in place on a desk.


If there was any concern that In Win focused on the bold design, brushed metal finish, and striking color scheme at the expense of build quality, let’s put that to bed right now: The H-Frame is as well built as any case we’ve seen. The whole chassis is rock solid, from the sturdy panels that comprise the case’s skeleton to the drive trays to the posts and screws holding things together, the H-Frame was just put together right.

The H-Frame ships with very few extras; in fact, all you’ll see in the box is a (very nice, full color) manual, several bags of screws (each one conveniently labelled), rubber pads for mounting the PSU, and five zip ties.
