A case is one of the hardest components to select for a new build, and also one of the most important. Not only does it house your components, but it very much determines what you can, and too often, can’t use for a build. One, maybe two radiators, 2 or 4 drives, and many other seemingly little limiting factors often have a builder searching endless lists for a case with the right combination that can hold what they actually need. Too often you have to change plans to make it all fit, and that is unacceptable. In traditional In Win style, the 509 breaks that mold. Capable of handling the largest E-ATX motherboards, 3x 360mm radiators as well as a few smaller ones at the same time, 9 drives, and more fans than you know what to do with, the 509 can handle anything you can throw at it without compromise. Wrapped in tempered glass and dressed in black with a subtle hint of grey, or a bold ROG Certified red, the In Win 509 can look good doing it too.
A separate cooling compartment in the front holds up to three 360mm radiators and is vented externally on the front via a filtered intake and out the right side to keep the warmed air away from your important components. Combine this with a flexible interior and some extras like hot swap drive bays and an RGB capable front logo and you have the makings of the ultimate case. Let’s see how it stacks up!
ProClockers would like to thank In Win for sending us the 509 to review.
