In Win Maelstrom
We were quite pleased with In-Win’s new Full Tower MAELSTROM. It accepts ATX/Micro ATX/E-ATX MB’s. It is drilled for water cooling and has holes and grommets for 4 lines. It comes with enough fans to satisfy most gaming enthusiasts and you could easily add another 120mm top exhaust or change the side 22cm fan for up to six 120mm fans for a real edgy look, and the quality of the chassis is well done.
The Maelstrom has a high quality black metallic finish on the outside and a very sleek, black satin finish on the interior and rear. It has a unique mesh side panel that won’t show scratches like a window will after use. It also has sound dampening material strategically placed as well as power supply and hard drive anti-vibration mounts. It is easy to work with, though it unfortunately lacks good cable routing holes, but the spacious interior does allow for enough room to store excess cables.
With a retail price tag of approximately $110, it’s a good deal for what you get, particularly the included fans, cooling, and spaciousness of a full tower setup. There are some competent competitors on the market, but if you’re looking for something with more unique styling then the Maelstrom is worth a close look and your consideration.
