InWin, an expert in PC hardware such as cases and cooling solutions, has presented two new products at once. Besides the N515 mid-tower chassis, the company, founded in 1985, has also announced a premiere. The company wants to launch a water cooling system for the first time. We take a closer look at the planned products.
Mid Tower Chassis Opens Nebula Series
InWin opens its so-called Nebula series with its N515. The front of the mid tower chassis is adorned with a multitude of star-shaped design elements. In combination with installed ARGB elements, really chic gaming setups should be possible. But InWin doesn’t only want to convince with the chic design of the front panel. Besides the design, the build quality should also be on a high level. InWin uses SECC steel, which is 1.2 mm thick. Thus, you can be sure that the hardware inside the chassis is optimally protected.
Place for a lot of hardware
The compatibility also sounds promising. So you should be able to install even large E-ATX motherboards here. There is also plenty of room for cooling elements. You should be able to install up to nine 120 mm fans in the N515. In addition, up to four radiators for water cooling should be possible. InWin already installs three fans in the N515 ex-works, which are located at the top of the case. These are supposed to ensure that hot air is completely sucked out of the PC’s main chamber. This is supposed to ensure better internal temperatures. The fans are high-quality AL120 ARGB PWM fans. These are not only supposed to provide a lot of power, but on top of that they can provide for fancy RGB effects.
Building a PC setup used to be a huge challenge for newbies. Fortunately, manufacturers are making it much easier for potential screwdrivers to assemble a PC on their own these days. This is also the case with the N515. For example, the quick-release fasteners on the sides allow convenient and screw-free access to the interior. Since InWin relies on magnets for its side panels, they can’t pop off unexpectedly. This should prevent unintentional hardware damage. The manufacturer also integrates a practical GPU mount ex-works. Larger and heavier graphics cards can also be installed here. Thanks to the so-called anti-sag function, they are also well protected during somewhat wobbly transports.
Comprehensive IO panel
Apart from the GPU, the N515 also scores with a high level of compatibility, at least on paper. You can not only install E-ATX mainboards. On top of that, the case also offers space for four 2.5-inch SSDs and two 3.5-inch HDDs. So you shouldn’t have any storage problems here. Among other things, two USB 3.1 Gen-1 Type-A, two USB 2.0 Type-A and 3.5 mm HD headphone and microphone jacks are found on the front I/O. On top of that, the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 with up to 20 GBit/s speed is supposed to be on the interface.
First AIO CPU liquid cooler from InWin
InWin has finally entered the AIO CPU liquid cooler market with its latest cooling solution. Here, the Nebula NR series scores with a factory-installed CPU block that, like the N515, also features a fancy Nebula effect. The special microchannel fins have a high density and therefore have the best cooling properties. Another plus point seems to be the innovative separation of the pump from the water block. InWin expects this to effectively dampen vibrations to enable the quietest possible operation.
The stylish and powerful Luna AL120 fans are said to be included right away. InWin also relies on pretty ARGB effects here, which are supposed to provide soft lighting. Thanks to the short cabling, the fans are best suited to be coupled with a water cooling system. You can attach the NR24/36 to AMD sockets as well as Intel sockets. This includes the new Intel Core CPUs of the 12th generation as well as the upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs with DDR 5.
