Every year at Computex, In Win shows off a new Signature-series chassis with an outlandish design and beautiful craftmanship. This year's entry is the H-Tower, which at first appears a tad restrained.
At two feet tall and 51 pounds, the Extended ATX tower still cuts an imposing profile. It looks kind of like a Sith droid with the black-and-red colorway, and there's a more subdued silver option that presents the brushed aluminum skin in all its naked glory.
The real magic happens with the touch of a button:
Mechanized struts spread the panels apart to expose the main compartment, which then rotates 90° to provide more convenient access to the belly of the beast. The motion isn't perfectly fluid, but wow. This is easily the coolest case I've seen out of Computex so far.
In Win's site doesn't have a top-down shot of the internals, so we'll have to make do with the following exploded view.
The insides are somewhat sparse, with storage limited to one 3.5" drive and four 2.5" units. For cooling, the case has three 120-mm mounts in the top panel that can be filled with fans or radiators. As one might expect, there's plenty of clearance for tall CPU coolers and long graphics cards. You also get USB 3.1 Type-C and USB 3.0 Type-A ports up front.
