    I've never been a huge fan of In-Win cases, but that is about the change. In Win's new Design 904 case on the other hand doesn't seem to fit this description. This new high-end case is made from b...

    I do like that hidden front intake, but the rear is just a strange design. The chassis could have been a few inches shorter.

    Looks like quite a compromise in practicality just for looks...

    No opening for an optical drive tray
    Strange front intake looks like a hole in the glass
    Intake compartment limits to a short PSU
    Only one intake and no exhaust for long radiators?
    Side USB and audio ports means it can't be put in tight spaces
    Strange protruded rear panel, blocks card exhaust
    In fact it blocks every rear port lol. Remove panel and the glass, top and bottom will protrude out the back.

    How would I turn on the PC?

    I would see this Case on a Rig of the Month System.

    What came to mind is this rear compartment is for accommodate some sort of water-cooling and then there is no big need for outtake fan's just one is enough, but it is a strange design although beauty.

    It does have space for an optical drive, its slides in the bottom front, there is a "hatch" it goes into in the back of that empty space at the front.

    As for the power switch.. I cant see it :p

    Anyone wondering about power sw, look carefully at the right side of USB area. It's visible well on the picture with the back and the side of this case, just under a screw.

    It looks nice....but unless you're building a low-end system it's practically useless. 145mm clearance for CPU cooler? Good luck with using anything but the stock cooler. Most decent tower coolers are too tall to fit.

    It's true that In Win's 904 has only a little less than 5¾" clearance for a cpu cooler and that ain't much for an air cooler, but CPU mag tested the 904 rig and managed to stuff a Zalman Reserator 3 closed loop water cpu cooler in there and reported no problems and good temps. They attached the Reserator's twin radiators to the 904's bottom panel fan mount.
