In Win keeps true to their way of doing things by offering a crazy chassis like this. The In Win H-Frame is by no means a sensible chassis. It comes with an extremely high price tag, offers only basic features, and does not come with any fans. But, before you go ahead and say, "Well then, why would I ever consider this chassis?", let me mention that this is an awesome chassis because of its design. In the end, In Win is offering a case of excellent quality, with excellent hot-swap bays, use of aluminum throughout the case, and the ability to hold a high-end system with enough room for two long graphic cards. You will expect such functionality from a case with such a high price tag, but you will not buy this case because of its features, and purely because of its looks. The fact that In Win offers looks with the H-Frame, while still giving you all the tools to create a powerful system with enough hard-drive bays for most scenarios, makes this the most beautifully unreasonable case one can buy. Sure, you can go ahead and buy a coffee table made of wood from IKEA, or go for one made of a jet turbine costing one hundred times as much. In the end, both will do the job just fine, but nobody will remember that IKEA table.
