In-Win GRone Full Tower Chassis ReviewFri, Oct 12, 2012 - 12:00 AM
The GRone ATX Full Tower Case
Full-size tower cases are larger in volume than your average desktop case, with more room for drive bays and expansion slots. Power users tend to add computer components over the years and can quickly outgrow smaller mid-tower cases. These larger full-size ATX towers ‘open the door’ when it comes to what one can put into them, or use with them. We can use larger motherboards, larger/multiple video cards, more storage drives, larger CPU coolers, bigger and better power supplies, to being able to expand our computers cooling capabilities into water cooling. You can usually fit all of these items into full-tower chassis easily and still not overcrowd the interior. If space is an issue for you now or you want to build a system you can grow into you need to look at a full tower computer case!
Today, we are going to be looking at the GRone full-tower from a well-known computer manufacturer that designs and builds quality, and affordable cases – In-Win. The In-Win GRone chassis is available in two different color variations, Gray ($159.99) or White ($159.99). Both come with a three year parts and labor warranty from In-Win. The chassis we are going to be looking at more closely in this review is the IN-WIN GRone Gray 0.8mm SECC steel ATX full tower computer case.

Giving the specifications of the GRone full-tower chassis a quick glance, we get an idea of the size of this chassis, and that this chassis can handle up to 10 120mm/140mm fans, this chassis comes with five 140mm fans already installed, and gives options of installing five more 120/140mm fans. In-Win also states that the GRone chassis can utilize both a dual 120mm radiator on the bottom, and a triple 120mm radiator up towards the top of the chassis.
