In Win Griffin Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Griffin doesn’t have a door and has four external 5.25” bays and one external 3.5” bay. The covers used  on the 5.25” bays are meshed and have air filters, which is great. The case comes with a place for installing a 80-, 92- or 120 mm fan between the front panel and the hard disk drive bays.

The reviewed case comes with two USB ports, an eSATA port and the traditional earphones and microphone jacks hidden. To have access to them you need to press the front panel where the In Win logo is located. The addition of an eSATA port was a surprise on a case from this price range.

In Figure 6, you can see the rear panel from this case. It follows the standard ATX design, with the power supply on the top and seven expansion slots. The slot covers are vented, what can improve the airflow inside the case. Griffin comes with a 92-mm fan on the rear panel, as you can see. This fan uses a small three-pin connector, so you have to install it on your motherboard, being able to monitor its speed. If you pay close attention you will see that this case has holes (that come closed) for attaching a serial port and an eSATA port on the rear panel.
