InWin has generated a lot of excitement since their appearance at Computex 2014. Their showing an innovative mix of case designs had Dennis raving about their innovative stretching of case design boundaries. We had a chance to review the no holds barred S-Frame design back in July but today we will take a look at their latest gaming case, the 707 Gaming Edition.
Radical design elements are great when budget is not an issue but most builds focus on practical design decisions. The 707 Gaming Edition is more than a gaming case it’s a full sized tower designed with the enthusiast in mind. Does it hit the mark? Let’s take a closer look!
There are two very different versions of the 707. Today we will be looking at the Black Gaming model. As you would expect this version comes only in the eye catching black with red accents you see here. In Win has also announced a second variant called the Silent White Edition. The Silent White version will feature a classic white with black accents color scheme and feature factory sound deadening elements. Both are full tower designs with a focus on compatibility and cooling. Those seeking a smaller option can look to the mid tower sized 703.

Modding is still a big part of building a computer either it be in component selection or pimping up the chassis the personalization of your computer is a large part of ownership. Full tower designs often offer the largest opportunity for customization due to the lack of size restrictions. That isn't to say you have to modify every case you buy but, every chassis should offer those opportunities and that his how we do our reviews.
