In Win 805: world’s first chassis with USB type-C on front panel

In Win Development, a well-known maker of stylish PC chassis, this week introduced its 805 mid-tower, the world’s first enthusiast-class computer case with USB type-C connector on the front panel. The new case is built of high-quality materials and provides rich expansion, cooling and PC configuration capabilities.

The In Win 805 mid-tower PC case is made of aluminium and 3mm tempered glass, a combination of materials that is unique to the company. The 805 features a see through skeleton case structure design which combines visual aesthetics and well-thought internal architecture that provides efficient airflow and allows to install modern computer components, such as large graphics cards (up to 320mm) and CPU coolers (up to 156mm). The signature feature of the In Win 805 is its front tempered backlit glass panel with anodized stylish hairline on front I/O section. The I/O panel sports one USB type-C receptacle, one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 connectors as well as audio input and output.

The In Win 805 mid-tower will be available in all-black, or with accents of red or gold. The new case will also come pre-fitted with a white (black/gold versions) or red (red version) LED backlit logo to match modern build aesthetics.

The new 805 chassis from In Win supports ATX, micro-ATX and mini-ITX mainboards. The case can accommodate two 3.5” storage devices, four 2.5” SSDs or HDDs and eight PCI Express add-in-cards. Unfortunately, it is impossible to install a 5.25” optical disc drive into the 805 mid-tower.

Like other enthusiast-class PC cases, the In Win 805 is optimized for both air and liquid cooling devices. It can house two 120/140mm front fans, one 120mm rear fan and two 120mm bottom fans. Alternatively, users can install a 120/140/240/280mm radiator (up to 60mm height) in the front and one 120mm radiator (up to 35mm height) in the rear.

While the In Win 805 is the world’s first PC case to feature USB type-C connector on the front panel, the implementation of the port is not exactly perfect. The USB type-C receptacle uses the exact same USB 3.0 connection to the mainboard as the USB 3.0 port. As a result, even though the In Win 805 features a reversible USB type-C connector and is compatible with appropriate devices, it does not support 10Gb/s transfer-rate and cannot deliver up to 100W of power to connected devices. Perhaps, the header enabling USB 3.0 (type-A and type-C) ports could be connected to a future mainboard that supports internal USB 3.1 (assuming that it retains the same pin-out), but the USB power delivery feature cannot be enabled without additional logic for power and signal management.

Various versions of the In Win 805 mid-tower chassis will be available starting from September globally. In the first months of availability, In Win will only offer all-black version of the 805 mid-tower with type-C connector and LED fan in Europe. In APAC region, the company will sell all-black and black/red versions of the 805 without LED accents and with USB 3.0 type-A front panel only. Various versions of the PC case will be available only in the U.S. Pricing is unknown, but it will vary depending on configuration and region.

KitGuru Says: Even though the USB type-C receptacle on the InWin 805 is not implemented really well (a proper way would resemble Asrock’s approach to its USB 3.1 type-C front panel, which is an expensive way of adding connectors), it is great to see a reversible USB port on the front panel of an enthusiast-class chassis. Moreover, the In-Win 805 is also one of the most stylish cases that the company has ever made. If you plan to build an elegant PC, the 805 mid-tower is a chassis to consider.

  5. just wouldn’t look as good with optical bays

  6. why dont you go for a usb powered dvd writer? 🙂

  7. Bemoaning the lack of optical drive bays feels like we’re back in the days when floppy was dying but people just wouldn’t let it go. Give it up! USB optical drives are dirt cheap and I have two that I just plug in to a USB hub on my desktop (when I need them), and they sit nicely on my desk. Look pretty smart too, far better than they would in a case. This 805 is a beaut!

  8. Why should i complicate my life? For a case? There are plenty of designs… Why? Cause i use both recorders at the same time? Why should i buy 2 usb recorders when i have 2 sata recorders already? For a case? No!

  9. If you would read closer, you’ll notice they said “unique to the company” not to other companies.

  11. “Why should i complicate my life”

    because you’re gonna have to sooner or later. Move with the times. Disks have been dying for over a decade. Moving on!

  12. Because USB powered DVD-writers that are sexy (slim types) max out at 8X speed for DVD-R and DVD+R vs. 24X for an internal SATA powered one.

    The bulky USB powered ones that can do 24X write speeds look ugly on a desk.

  13. That’s one sexy/modern looking case. Wish they made a larger version too.

  14. I smell a troll. What part of “im using them for work” didnt you read?

  15. They are trying to kill DVDs to limit your freedom, so you have to stream where they control the media you paid for instead of you. This is one case where we should stop the times from forcing us to go to standards that make it easier for them to control the media we paid for!
