InWin Maelstrom

Cases

Conclusion

InWin have done themselves proud with the Maelstrom. It might look a little strange, but it doesn’t cost much and comes packing a whole host of great features: including reasonable cable management, excellent cooling in the way of 3 x 120mm fans and a 220mm fan on the side panel, tool less mounting clips for HDDs and ODDs that work nicely and some great sound proofing.

There are some problems though, with the looks being the number one issue for me personally. I don’t like the non-handles at the front, and the colouring for the fans is a bit odd. The cable management could be improved too. Ultimately though, these being the only issues with a case that costs well under £100, it’s a pretty damn good deal.

Ultimately the InWin Maelstrom may not be perfect, but for a mid-cost chassis with a tonne of features, and love them or hate them looks, you could do a lot worse.
