The GT1 Mid-Tower is the latest case from In-Win USA. It contains 6 internal 3.5” drive bays, 3 external 5.25” drive bays, and an ample amount of USB connectors (1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0). The company has placed an “EZ Swap Dock” on the top of the case, which allows for rapid changing of SATA hard drives. For those individuals that have to bring over large (over the size of a thumb drive) projects from one station to another, the presence of this dock is a godsend. The build quality of the GT1 is beyond reproach and will stand up to jostling and normal office/house damage (running into it with the legs of a chair, kicking it).
Cooling is easy for the GT1, as In-Win has included support for 9 fans (8 120mm along with the red 120mm that is included with the case). The routing pathway that is provided here allows for greater cooling, as system builders can keep the case’s space open. The GT1 also includes a bottom-mounted PSU bracket. The decision to place this bracket on the bottom is great for a system’s center of gravity, but places the burden of off-floor placement of a system firmly in the hands of purchasers. Finally, for those with bestial video cards, the GT1 has a removable bracket that allows for placement of extra-long video cards.
The GT1 Mid-Tower ATX can be purchased for around $75, and represents a solid upgrade for anyone that is looking for an airy and spacious case that can fit on a shelf or under a desk. Visit the In-Win website at www.inwin-style.com .
