InWin today announced general availability of their 216 PC chassis. This is a somewhat understated design for the company, and one that will look good on either an RGB-heavy system or a more subdued take on PC technology. The front panel features a solid black, brushed aluminium cover that's classic and understated, with a single brushed aluminium side-plate that brings some color to the entire chassis. Air intakes make-up the right side of the front panel, allowing air to be pulled inside the chassis from up to 3x 120 mm fans. The tempered glass side-panel fastens with a magnetic locking mechanism, which means there's no need to tussle with screws when removing the panel to either upgrade hardware, clean up the chassis' innards, or troubleshoot.

The chassis supports anything from Mini-ITX through E-ATX motherboards, features a vertical GPU installation option (especially good if you have that sweet Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition RTX 2080 Ti, but I digress...). CPU cooler height clearance stands at 166 mm, PSU clearance at 220 mm, graphics card length at a maximum 380 mm, and its storage racks feature support for up to 2x 2.5" SSDs and 5x HDDs. The chassis also features 2x USB 3.0 ports, mic-in and audio-out on top of the front panel, and supports up to 1x 360 mm radiator (on the front of the chassis), alongside a 120 fan/radiator on the back of the chassis and 2x 120 mm fans on top. Like most cases these days, the PSU compartment features a shroud to hide away cabling. Sadly, no word on pricing was available at time of writing.

That is a nice chassis.

Can you please elaborate on what exactly you find that is so "nice" about it, cause from what I see, it's just ANUTHA s/o/s/s/ boring rectangle that looks practically identically to the other 6,894,251.37 boxen out there already.....

It doesn't even have USB-C on the front I/O, which is totally unacceptable for a so-called "NEW" case in 2020 IMHO :)

No RGB and has some nice logoing on the front of it too.

That looks like a catastrophically restrictive front panel. There's maybe 1x80mm worth of breathable gap there.

Does the left side have intake holes too (hidden behind the brushed metal accent strip - I notice there's a small gap there)?

Every time I saw such an abomination, the infamous quote of "We need more breathing room" rings into my ear...

Seriously... Why on earth they desing something like this? This was the main reason we (well, the older ones) started to hack'n'slash those damn beige boxes 20 something years ago...

I think the last "innovative" design was the trashcan Mac Pro. And we all know how that went.

It doesn't even have USB-C on the front I/O, which is totally unacceptable for a so-called "NEW" case in 2020 IMHO

This is something that definitely should be added in new designs. At least 1 USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 type-C port (besides the usual audio jacks and at least 1 Type A USB 3.x port)

Looks a lot like the fractal Define 7, but missing a lot of the thoughtful details.
