http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:9keZYW-30PPRYM:http://www.i-tech.com.au/Library/Image/Product/bp655_001.jpgThe amazingly compact mATX for factor for motherboard was an amazing step in the right direction. Offices switched over the mATX because it too up way less space than a standard desktop size. Now mATX is packing its bags to make way for the incredibly compact itx motherboard form factor that is not only taking over the office but it is squeaking its way into gaming rigs and your living room. Intel just announced that they will be launching an ITX motherboard for the new i5 661 series CPU’s that will include a spot for a PCI-E 16x slot. Don’t be fooled ITX is here to stay and the people over at In Win are great early adopters.  Today we will be taking a look at their latest ITX Case the In Win BP Series ITX PC ITX Chassis:

Conclusion:

The In Win BP Series ITX Chassis is a small case with big features I was completely blown away by everything you get in this case for a sub $50 price tag. It is sleek well designed easy to work in (for an ITX case) and it has great cooling. The addition of an included PSU makes this case a no brainer for anyone trying to custom build their own ITX based PC. I have been running a Zotac Ion with and Intel Atom N33 dual core processor and I have been running the PC for days now the PSU had no hiccups and the temps were never anything to worry about. I would say if you are going for a media PC build I would suggest not plugging in the LED’s but other than that it’s a great case.

Would I recommend this case? Yes, it is everything you need for an entry level build with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a larger, more expensive case.

Pros:

  • Price
  • Included PSU
  • Well Made
  • Sleek Design 
  • Blue LEDs
  • Great for Office and Media Applications
  • Good Airflow
Cons:
  • If In Win Wants to Eventually Market This Product for Home Theater use I would Suggest a Toggle for the LEDs
