Lovely case. Its a shame that, as with some of their latest premium cases, the interior falls short. My 901 has a reasonably well designed interior and so does the new 904+.

Welp, not going to get it anymore as there are too many holes and I don't want to chop up a case that costs that much. The 904+ is much better designed while still keeping the look I love.

See?

out of my price range, but seems even some blanking plates for the ssd slots would of been a simple option

No i have never really been a fan of InWin cases if i had the money i would rather buy a CaseLabs over this 9/10 times. Yes i know CaseLabs are even higher price.

The outside looks ok but the inside looks like a complete mess to me.

I like the 901 that I own as well. It cools remarkably well considering its small size and few places for fans.

I also bought an InWin 805 Glass Case. I haven't built a system into it yet, but I may use it for my i7-6700K build next week.

I was this close to purchasing an 805 then freaked out about it being a bit hot for a dual GPU setup and put it back on the wishlist. I agree with the points on the other In-Win designs. Exteriors look sublime but the interiors are a bit uninspiring. Keen to see what you end up doing with your 805.

I'll be using a pair of R9-290X cards in Crossfire in it.

nice will be interesting to see. Love the aesthetic just don't want to cook over summer. Altho aluminium top and a couple of eggs may go alright.

I do have a pair of GTX-690s that can go in it, but they would have to be water cooled.

It's so nice to see Inwin rise up.

I remember back in '99 when I worked in the shop we had to order a load of cases in for the new P4 boards. Apparently some cases were incompatible so we had to order in 20 cases that were "P4 certified". Turns out they were very early Inwins and I was so impressed at how solid and heavy they were that I bought one myself

Nice to see them kicking out very high end gear though.
