- Beautiful case
- Quite roomy to build in
- Affordable glass case under $100
- Pretty sturdy materials in general
- No rubber grommet
- Prefer more cutout, or at least bigger holes.
- Negative pressure airflow
- I/O shield is positioned kinda hard to put into
Overall, A good case, but with flaws.
This case is absolutely stunning, minimalist yet allowing for great cable management. It was a breeze to work in it
This case's looks are awesome. The one side has a huge glass panel and the other has the hexagon top. Lots of space in the case and plenty of fan support. Only thing is the small cut outs for wire management but it worked out pretty well
There are a lot of pros and cons to my case, but I think overall it's sexy and the tempered side glass with the easy button is the best part. I had room for all of my parts!
Pros: its sexy af, open concept, fits a full ATX board, dust filter at bottom, psu at the top is something new
Cons: wasted space, weird fans (intake at bottom and none front), full mobo=no room for 2 fans on the bottom, cables/wiring at the back was tight
EDIT: I HATE THIS CASE IT SUCKS THE IO SHIELD IS THE DUMBEST THING ON EARTH, I CANT EVEN PUT IT IN. THERES NO ROOM FOR MY FAT FINGERS TO PLUG THINGS IN, ESP THE FRONT HEADER PANEL PLUGS BECAUSE IT SITS RIGHT AGAINST THE BOTTOM OF THE CASE. THE RETAINER BRACKET LITERALLY AGED ME 6000 YEARS BECAUSE THE SCREWS DON'T FIT. I WAS SWEATING SO MUCH TRYING TO PUT IT ON I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO WATER DAMAGE MY MOBO.
In Win is known for their unconventional case layouts and style. And they definitely push those boundaries as far as they can. The 303 is no exception. It incorporates an attic for the psu and exhaust fans. But what makes it creative is its sideways exhaust direction.
But that doesn't come without a few challenges. The bottom fan opening/s does have a dust filter tray. Where that becomes a bit of a headache is if you want to place (3) intake fans AND you have a full size ATX motherboard, those fans and the motherboard's lower connections will interfere with each other. You will have to get creative with some of those harnesses/connections (e.g.: front io and/or usb3 connector).
Another design cue that does get interesting is the attic. You can fit 3 exhaust fans along the panel, but the left most fan will be blowing air directly into your PSU. As for your other two exhaust fans, even if you keep your PSU cables managed, the honeycomb designed cutouts on the back panel seems restrictive.
Overall, I still am completely satisfied with this case and what it brought to the table. You do have to get creative with your cable management. Not only does it have a tempered glass front panel, but it also has an easy removal method which makes doing minor adjustments very easy.
Fantastic looks and great value. The only issue is there is not a lot of space at the bottom for a full size ATX mobo and 3 intake fans. All of the front panel connectors and USB headers would be blocked by the fans. Run a mATX mobo and you'll have no issues.
Amazing case, probably the best bang for the buck. but the cable hole for the 24pin is ugly.
I love this case! It's so pretty! Cable management was kind of a pain because there's not too much room in the back besides the space by the top fans. Not much room at the bottom too. Can't use my front usb 3.0. Get motherboard with usb 3.0 header on the side.
Love this case. A good case to display great components. Requires a lot of aftermarket fans because it doesn't come with any but most would buy new ones anyway
This case is the easiest to work in, and the most attractive case I've ever owned. Modding it is a breeze, it's very sturdy, and the glass side panel is gorgeous with lights behind it. I regret nothing about this case.
