Case Transplant

Received the new In-Win 101 case for my upcoming Ryzen 3000 series build, but since there is a few months until the new CPU-s and motherboards become available, I decided to put my current system in it to check cooling and acoustical performance. I'm very pleased with cooling, but acoustics need some work - HDD seeking makes the front and top panels resonate, so bitumen pads and some foam are in order.

Overall it's a very nice case to work with and very little to complain - front panel power, LED and audio connection cables could be a little longer, the rubber washers on the HDD trays do little to reduce vibration, and the SSD trays behind the motherboard tray could use some 2 mm spacers because the SATA power connector gets a bit tight to fit ( the case comes with some washers for water cooling mountings so I used these). Other than that, excellent aesthetics, plenty of room inside to work with and very good airflow, especially for the GPU. I especially like the bottom air filter, which is removable from the side, not front or (the horror!) back.
