In Win F430 PC Gaming Chassis Review
User Rating: / 0

Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon cars and performance go hand in hand, Gamers and enthusiasts liken their PC to performance hotrods all the time; whether it be the speed in which super pi can be completed as being likened to a drag race or “pimping” out your case much like Xibit and his boys do to cars. Thus far I have not personally seen any chassis made specifically for the car enthusiast in mind aside from custom mods; that is until now. In-Win have done it again mixing performance style and functionality all into one beautiful looking package. The In-Win F430 is a perfect marriage of the car and computer enthusiast into one cherry chassis. Let’s get a good look at it up close and personal:

  • PSU- Nexus RX-1K 1000 Watt



For testing I will be running a few simple tests and recording the idle and load temps of the CPU, GPU, HDD, and the ambient temp inside the case. To achieve the load temps I will be using the Prime 95 Burn-In test. The ambient room temp will be kept at a steady 23 degrees to ensure controlled testing results.

From what we can see here the F430 is a great case and keeps components well within tolerable temperature ranges. I was impressed with this cases performance over all so lets see the final thoughts:


I must say the F430 is the nicest case I have seen out of In-Win yet, this is a very impressive feat because so far there is not one case we have not loved from In-Win. The coupling of style and function are incredible. Products from In-Win become a focal point of a well designed room, as opposed to the normal need to hide the computer in the corner so as not to detract from a room. The metallic paint job on the F430 is absolutely awesome I have never seen such a nice paint job on a case that was factory produced. This type of attention to detail would be something you would expect from a modded custom case not a production model.

Would I recommend this product? I honestly can’t think of anyone that came into the office that didn’t instantly ooo and ahh over this case, men and women alike loved it! This is a great case and I think if you are an exotic car enthusiast and you are still sporting a white box pc case you should be ashamed of yourself with beautiful cases like the F430 arround and you don’t own one.


  • Style
  • Metallic Paint
  • Cheesy Engine Noise (it made me laugh so it gets points)
  • Awesome Start Button
  • Decent Temps
  • Quiet
  • None (although I would love to see a hummer version for full tower applications haha)
