InWin Chopin Mini-ITX Chassis With Built-in 150W PSU Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Mini-ITX system builds have become big business as more and more consumers are looking for compact and stylish PC solutions for their home office and living room. The InWin Chopin certainly fits the bill, packing in a brushed aluminium design and front panel colour customisation that is sure to help you match the styling of your workspace, or add some flair to your home entertainment setup.
“Chopin is an ultra slim form factor case designed for the most efficient and user-friendly experience. It is only 3.3 liters in size, but comes with various multi-functional features. It has everything you need, and nothing you don’t.” – InWin
While too small to support a graphics card, the Chopin features a built-in 80 Plus Bronze 150W PSU that could save you a lot of money, as well as decrease the built time on your new rig. The compact form factor is not far off what you would expect from a games console or digital set top box either, so having it up on top of your desk, or sitting snug under your TV means it will be appealing to those building a compact workstation or HTPC.
The compact chassis means compact packaging, with a tiny brown box with Chopin on the front, nice and simple.
In the box, you’ll find everything you need to get you setup. There is a comprehensive owners manual, the mains power cable, a hard drive power cable, and eight colour strips in four colours to help you tailor the overall design of the chassis.
