PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
In Win calls the Dragon Slayer a mini tower chassis and, as you can see from the dimensions, it's pretty compact. The chassis comes with four fans installed and the option of installing up to four more on the side panel; not something you see on your garden-variety mATX case. Configuration options are also plentiful here and the Dragon Slayer will accept up to two of the latest graphics cards. Other features include tubing holes for liquid cooling and a couple of extra expansion bays, but let's move on to the rest of the review to get a look at the Dragon Slayer.
The Dragon Slayer comes in a heavy cardboard carton that is both colorful and informative. On the front, a medieval knight in full armor does battle with a fire-breathing dragon while the sides of the carton are given over to the specifications and extensive feature list.
Inside, the Dragon Slayer comes wrapped in a plastic bag and sandwiched between two sturdy Styrofoam blocks, allowing it to arrive at the lab in pristine condition.
With the packaging removed, the Dragon Slayer is revealed in all its (somewhat diminutive) glory. In Win claims that the look is derived from chain mail, and the gun-metal gray mesh is somewhat reminiscent of a mail suit…kinda. The look is striking and attractive in much the same way that a suit of armor is striking and attractive. In Win includes a colorful manual and a bag of accessories to help the user get a system installed in the Dragon Slayer. We'll go over these items, as well as the chassis itself, in more detail in the next section.
