All my life, i always had mid towers and full tower PC. It looks nice and you don't really care about how big or how heavy they are when you are bringing them to LAN Parties or over to a friend's place. But the older you get, the lazier you get. This is where i started considering a mini build. At first, i was very skeptical. I've been building computers for more than 14 years and i built only one itx build and the experience back in the days was more than painful. I'm very picky about performance in my PC, so my future build had to be as powerful as a regular size tower and enough airflow to keep a RTX 2080 and an i7 9700k perfectly cool. I kept searching for something that would meet all those criterias
This is when i saw the in-win A1 mini-itx case.
I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the case. I mean, all of in-win cases are amazing in terms of built quality, but to have the same standard applied to a case of that size is quite surprising. It supports a full length GPU and the fan setup on this case is well thought and perfect for good air flow. The included 600w 80 bronze plus is also more than enough for the most demanding hardware you could put in this chassis. It is also pre-routed for optimal space optimization in the case. In top of that, the tempered glass panel and the RGB transparent stand makes the case look fantastic and allows you to show off your components perfectly. Another really nice function of the case is the wireless charger that is built-in the glass top of the case, which allows compatible devices to charge while sitting on your case. The final built was more than impressive and it is one of the best looking PC i've ever built.
Here is the specs list: CPU: Intel Core i7 9700k @4.6GHz all-cores CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S MOBO: Asus Z390-i ROG Gaming motherboard RAM: 2x8GB White Corsair Vengeance RGB @3200MHz GPU: MSI Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 Duke Edition OS Storage: 1x 256 GB Evo 960 NVMe SSD Data storage: Kingston 500GB 2.5" SSD
In terms of thermals, this case is so well optimized that it has better results than my older Full ATX tower with an AIO CPU cooler. I'm really proud of this build and i 100% recommend the in-win A1 case for anyone considering a mini-itx build.
