Features & Specifications

The IN WIN Matrix is a case with a simple and space saving design, with just 12.5L in volume, it is compatible with current standard components as well as video cards, network cards, TV tuner cards, etc and up to 4 sets of independent expansion slots.

Smart Cable Management
The brilliant back panel design enables wires to be concealed inside the chassis. It provides a clean contemporary look with a smart cable management feature.

Partition Plate Cooling Technology (PPCT)
By separating the CPU fan from the heat sink to reduce back draft, Partition Plate Cooling Technology (PPCT) efficiently streamlines the airflow in a unilateral direction to provide an exceptional thermal performance. This is pretty cool device and quite innovative. In basic terms it will collect cold air from the outside then disperse it underneath a plate to make sure the heat inst being circulated back into the CPU cooler.

Volume vs. Size
With less than 12.5L volume size, IN WIN Matrix’s thermal and acoustic solutions outperform larger cases. Its superior design allows the Matrix to accommodate all exiting standard components and support up to 4 FULL height expansion cards.

Excellent Thermal Solution
Efficient air flow design and a 6cm fan for the hard drive keeps the system stable and performing at the peak of its capability.

Removable Mesh
The side panel with thermal vents has a removable mesh that prevents dust from clogging into the power supply.

Below are the specifications for the Matrix:

  • Case Type: MicroATX
  • Color: Pearl White
  • Material: SECC ECO Steel and Plastic
  • Side Panels: Windowed acrylic in Matrix, no windows on Matrix-NW
  • Volume: 12.5L
  • Dimensions: 9"H x 11.2"W x 14.7"D
  • External 5.25"drive bay: 1
  • 3.5 drive bay internal: 2
  • Expansion slots: 4
  • Motherboard: MicroATX
  • System fans:  120mm rear exhaust blue LED
  • I/O Ports: USB 2.0 x 2 / IEEE1394 x 1 / e-SATA / HD+AC97 Audio
  • Power Supply: SFX 300w

Well let’s look at the packaging because this is quite important since we don’t want a beat up and scratched case to come out of the box with disappointment. IN WIN does a decent job with a top and bottom Styrofoam covering to keep the case in place, as well as a plastic wrap/bag placed over the case.

As you see it?s a pretty standard package with an instruction Manual and some extra screws which is decent but they could of maybe gave you an extra expansion card cover or a little screw drive.

Let’s take a closer look at the exterior now.
