In Win BUC Computer Case Review

Manufacturer: In Win Development, Inc.
Product Name: BUC
Model Number: BUC666
Price As Tested: $99.99 (NewEgg)

Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by In Win.

Ever dream of a mid tower case that had four hot swap internal SATA drive bays that you could access easily? Of course the case would have to have plenty of fans for cooling, and a pass thru ventilation design for the PSU to reduce heating the internal components. And of course, you would want your mechanical drives to be noise isolated. It might also help if the case had a cool look with a back lit LED fan to kind of show it all off. Hey let's throw in water cooling holes just in case, and what would be nice is if the price was affordable. Perhaps less than a hundred bucks?

But before we get to fulfilling that day dream, lets talk about In Win Development. The corporation is an ISO 9001 manufacturer of computer cases. Its philosophy is based around eight elements, Innovation, Service, Speed, Value, Safety, Warmth, Faithfulness, and Diligence. Its a rather pleasing list. The company has been manufacturing cases since 1986. So, it turns out that In Win Development, has been innovating and listening.

And they created the In Win BUC. It has all of those features, including the modest price. They even included top mount USB 3.0 access. The question is can they provide all those features with ease of use, and quality engineering. Let's see if all those features come in a package that looks as good on the inside as well as the outside.

I have used IN WIN products in the past and found them to be somewhat cheap & inferior in the past. However lately I am seeing some generic providers or products hitting a new high. This case does look nice and it does seem to hit that sweet spot $100-$120 target online. I love that the drives are hot swappable, that makes the build that much easier. A couple of things this case needs in my opinion. 1. Dock (I repair PC's so it would be nice to have, even though I have 2 Thermaltake BlacX Duets 2. More room for cabling. 3. A Full ATX version because this case looks awesome! 4. Option to install a PSU on the top or bottom. I have been building PC's for 11 years and I like what I am seeing in the ATX/MATX case market these last 2-3 years.

"There is 5/8? (15.875mm) of space between the motherboard tray and the case cover."

Thanks for measuring that, and measuring the video card length.

I really hate cases that provide only a rear fan on the top of the case. No provision for top intake. Blech. Makes the rest of the features useless.

Thanks for doing the homework on the fan.
