101C Features USB Type-C Front Panel & RGB Lighting
[Taoyuan, Taiwan, June 2017] In Win Development Inc., has today announced its high quality and unique PC gaming chassis: the 101 and 101C, an affordable entry-level series.
The new 101 includes a full tempered glass side panel, and a beautifully clean front panel design. In Win’s iconic hexagonal ventilation design can be seen throughout the chassis such as on the rear side panel and the base.
Available in black/red or white/blue color schemes, the modest lighting effect highlights the sharp, angulated logo design that also cleverly hides the power button. To keep the simple and clean design, the front I/O is positioned at the top, granting easier access for PCs stored under desks or tables. The front I/O includes USB 3.0 (2x) and 3.5mm stereo HD audio jacks.
The 101C differs by adding a USB type-C connector and RGB lighting option that is compatible with RGB-enabled (4-pin) motherboards. The RGB bezel is also sync-ready with participating motherboard software.
An easily removable dust filter is included at the bottom just above three 120mm spaces for radiators or fans. The 101 supports up to six 120mm fans for great cooling performance and flexible air-flow. The 101 is versatile enough to support liquid cooling radiators (120/240/360mm).
By also moving the PSU to the top, it allows the bottom in-take fans to directly cool the graphics cards above, giving much cooler operating temperatures. Ultimately this design provides excellent cooling performance and great views of the internal hardware.
Internally the 101 supports up to two 3.5-inch HDDs, four 2.5-inch SSDs, longer graphics cards (421mm) and CPU coolers with a height of 160mm. The 101 also includes a discreet graphics card support bracket to eliminate GPU sag.
The PSU chamber covers the cables from view and feeds the cables directly through the cable management area. The PSU chamber is constructed with reinforced steel, and is secure enough to safely mount PSUs.
