Many you have heard the name of InWin before, but can't quite put your finger on something they have made in the past. They have had some interesting ideas here and there but nothing that really took hold in the DIY PC community. We think that is all about the change because I don't think you can forget the InWin 901.
We have seen a lot of new style injected into the InWin product line such as what they showed off at CES 2014 this year. The 901 premium mini-ITX brings the style with a single curved piece of aluminum and tempered glass side panel design. It is the first PC case we have seen with a tinted glass window in a long time. Don't even think about selling the 901 short though as it comes with plenty of other things to brag about as well.
This includes the hidden slim optical drive bay, magnet fan filters, support for GPUs up to 11.8 inches (300 mm), support for PSUs up to 7.87 inches (200 mm), and plenty of cooling options. To ensure everything looks beautiful, InWin is also launching a 550W and 750W 80+ Gold Certified power units to match the 901 and 904 as bundled deals. You can find the InWin available now priced at $189.99.
This is no small price for a Mini-ITX PC case, but nothing else in the category has this kind of premium style either. No word on the pricing of the bundled offer with matching PSU. You can find more details about this sexy ass case below.

In Win Launches Its 901 Mini-ITX PC Chassis
January 2014 - In Win Development Inc., a leading innovator in PC design and multiple winner of the internationally renowned red-dot Design Award, has today announced its new 901 premium mini-ITX PC chassis.
Precision Craftsmanship with No Compromise
Approaching the growing mini-ITX market with a new, premium design, the 901 features a stunning, minimalist exterior made from a single piece of 4mm curved, hairline brushed aluminum with tinted, tempered glass panel sides. In essence, the In Win 901 is a no compromise design made with precision craftsmanship.
Ideal For Steam Box Gaming
Internally, its wholly unique design uses space innovatively, including 20 mm of side-space for cable management, a hidden slim-line optical drive-bay, magnetic aluminum fan filters and a rear cover that discretely hides cables protruding from the motherboards I/O panel and add-in cards. PC installation remains as easy as ever, with large thumbscrews, two EZ-Swap HDD modules, a removable 2.5” drive bay, rear or external-mounting for liquid cooling radiators and a motherboard tray cut-out for easy CPU cooler mounting.
Small Size with Full Hardware Support
Even though it accommodates the small mini-ITX form factor, there’s still support for high-powered hardware as internally the 901 can fit full-length (up to 30 cm) graphics cards, large (up to 200 mm) ATX power supplies and CPU heatsinks up to 130 mm tall. Externally users can fit s 120 mm liquid cooling radiators on the rear, in addition to the 90 mm rear fan and 120 mm bottom fans for internal cooling. Two front panel Super-Speed USB 3.0 connectors are included in addition to the 3.5 mm headphone and microphone HD audio jacks.
In Win is also announcing availability of its new 550W and 750W 80Plus Gold PSUs, ideally suited to match the 901 and 904 chassis respectively. With modular power connectors, three powerful 12V rails and one silent fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) 12 cm cooling fan; both PSUs offer up to 0.99 active PFC with a full complement of protective standards including OCP, OVP, OPP, UVP and SCP. The flat, black modular cabling is an ideal match to the 901 and 904 chassis minimalist appeal.
For the North American market, the 901 will launch pre-bundled with 550W Gold PSU, followed by general world-wide availability for the PSUs in the coming months, adding to In Win’s growing range of high-quality power supplies. In Win recommends the 550W and 750W 80Plus Gold PSUs be used for its 901 and 904 chassis respectively due to their ideal sizes and matching component aesthetics, but neither chassis are limited to using these PSUs.
