Kaat Reviews the In-Win BR665

Just received the IN WIN BR-665 case!
Honestly, I wasn’t looking forward to rebuild a PC as I only just finished building one. Really didn’t think it would
get any better than it already was. I didn’t know of the IN WIN cases before this encounter so I had no idea
what to expect. Luckily my enthusiasm came after getting my first look at the case.
The looks are good, case is very lightweight but does not feel ‘cheap’, it is well engineered and designed. Its
compact size makes it a very interesting LAN-case. They say its design is influenced by the style of a camera lens
and I can see where they got their inspiration. It also features many dust filters to make sure no dirt gets in:
you wouldn’t like to have dust in your camera lens either right?
The yellow quick releases make a very nice and subtle accent to its fairly sleek design!
But enough about the looks! The first experience building it made me quite happy. There is lots of room for
cable-management and nicely located drive bays, plus well-designed thermal solutions. Power supply goes in the
bottom of the case and takes in air from beneath the case. So no heat passes through the PC from the power
supply. Lots of room for fans! Access to all the parts is easy and straightforward.
Installing all the gear was fairly simple and straight-forward. Just takes some time to manage all the cables. But
hey, that’s really worth the effort!
All together a great case, perfect combination between form and function!
