PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
An air duct is present on the inside of the panel with a vent below it. I've always found air ducts like this to just be in the way of the heatsink but this particular one is adjustable. It can be shifted to either side to line up with the CPU, and the length of the duct itself can be shortened or lengthened. Of course, it can be completely removed too.
Looking inside, the first thing that catches the eye is the dual 80mm fans used for video card cooling. On most cases fans are built right into the side panel, but here In Win chose to put an entire fan assembly inside. It is released by pressing the large button near the drive cage.
The assembly tilts down to allow access to the inside and is removable if one decides not to use it in the case permanently. Let's take a closer look at it.
The standard positioning of the fans is to blow directly on the video card area, but one of them can be tilted upward to blow air towards the back if desired.
The hard drive cage isn't removable but it does swing outward slightly. This allows access to the 120mm intake fan that can be removed by simply pulling it out. It makes things much easier than removing the front bezel which is the case on a lot of other chassis.
