InWin 915 Case Review

System Build

The hardware included in this build is:

  • ASRock Z370 Tachi Motherboard
  • Intel 8700K Processor
  • 4 x 4GB Team Group T-Force Delta RGB Ram
  • EVGA 1070 FTW GPU
  • Cooler Master ML360R RGB AIO
  • EVGA 750W P2 PSU

The build was fairly straight forward and pretty much went as planned. I decided to install the 360mm AIO in the top of the case and the removable radiator bracket really made installing the AIO a breeze. Since there is only 70mm of clearance you can’t do a push/pull configuration in the top chamber. Even if you were to try and install fans inside the case there isn’t enough room between the motherboard and mounting points. An added bonus is that all the thumb screws on the case are attached and spring loaded so I didn’t need to worry about losing them.  Overall, the case was a dream to build in, all those little design choices really made for an effortless build. My only negative would be that moving around the case can be a little awkward at times with its shape and weight.

The back of the case had plenty of tie down points to manage my cables and the cutouts were positioned nicely with my motherboard. I decided to forgo using the included cable clips as my PSU cables are rather thick and were easier to just zip tie to the case. If you had a custom sleeved set of cables, I believe these clips would work quite well. The SSD was easily installed using one of the 4 included 2.5” drive mounting brackets.

Because my PSU cables and RGB controller are on the bulky side I opted to extend the PSU bay to 320mm. This was a little bit of work as it required removing 2 screws from the top of the PSU shroud and the bottom of the case. Once the divider was moved I had plenty of room to work with.

I really did like the design of the cable channels at the back of the case. In my opinion, this really cleans up the look over traditional cases.

Since the back is completely covered, it seems InWin decided the I/O cover was not needed. The motherboard sits a little back from the cutout and the cutout itself is too small to install the I/O shield. This is not a negative, it is just something I haven’t seen before.

When booting up the PC the first time it was pretty awesome seeing those vents pop up. Also, when shutting down the PC, these vents also close automatically. If at any point you want to close or open the vents manually, you can do so by pressing the multifunction button. In my option this is by far the coolest feature of the 915 and really adds to its uniqueness.

To get a good view of the front LED, I turned off the lights. Currently it matches the rest of my build since it plugged into the same RGB controller. If I wish to use the InWin built in controller I can press and hold the multifunction button to switch modes.
