Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Dragon Rider is the latest full-tower case from In Win. Its left-side panel is identical to the one used on the Ironclad and on the Maelstrom –two full-tower cases from In Win –, but the Dragon Rider brings several new features. Let’s take a look at them!

Differently from most cases, the Dragon Rider comes with a 120 mm fan on its right panel to cool down the bottom area of the CPU. This fan is attached to a standard peripheral power connector, and thus you can’t monitor its speed.

The left panel, better seen in Figure 3, comes with a big 220 mm fan that glows in blue when turned on. A switch is available for you to turn off the LEDs, and the fan is connected to a standard peripheral power connector, so you can’t monitor its speed. If you remove this fan you can install up to six 120 mm fans. So, if you are paranoid with air flow, this case should please you. On the good side, all holes for screwing the fans have a rubber washer, helping reducing vibration and thus noise. On the bad side, both the left and the righr panels don’t come with air filters.
