Over the years I have favored the Small Form Factor (SFF) cases as I have always lived in places tight on space. Now that I had a chance to use the BK6323 Mountain Jade SFF case from In-Win, I can honestly say that is the smallest case I have ever used. In-Win teamed up with Intel to design the case to handle the heat of the new Intel Core2 Duo with out a case fan, just the stock heat sink. With an street price of under $50 the Mountain Jade is a very affordable SFF case that comes with a 300W power supply. While this power supply certainly shouldn't be used with high end video cards it should be plenty for a system with integrated graphics.
In case you have never heard of In-Win Development Inc., they are an ISO 9001 manufacturer of professional computer chassis, power supplies and digital storage devices. In-Win was founded in 1986 and has been making products ever since. This is the first time we have reviewed a product that has been made by In-Win, but they are not a new company by any means.
