There are a staggering number of aftermarket PC cases to choose from these days, making the choice of a chassis for a new build more difficult. If your in the, “Hey, a case is a case.” camp then you just look for the cheapest chassis that will hold your stuff. Most enthusiasts, on the other hand, want at least some visual appeal for their new machine and the case is virtually the only visible component. Don’t get me wrong, the case should have good features and cooling too, but a bit of style is always welcome.
In Win, while not yet a household name in the enthusiast case market, have designed and marketed some very nice cases in the past and I’m always impressed with their offerings. This time out, they’ve sent us their new Maelstrom full tower chassis. With a moniker like Maelstrom, which refers to an oceanic tidal whirlpool, watercooling might come to mind. While this case does in fact have some features that would make the installation of a liquid cooling system easier than some other cases, it would seem that In Win is alluding to the air cooling performance of their Maelstrom chassis. While this may be a tad misleading, it’s a cool name and I’m anxious to see how it looks and performs.
