It seems that America has a very bad memory. I try not to get involved in politics, however, now that Wisconsin has one of our idiot politicians running for vice president, I can't get away from it. The big message the GOP is trying to push is "are we better now than four years ago?". Um, yes, we are much better. Four years ago we had the housing market crashing, banks collapsing, the auto-mobile industry going under, and job loss rates into the 100 thousands monthly. Oh, and with the stock market crashing, many people's retirement funds dropped over 50% in worth. Anyone who says America isn't better than four years ago must have been living under a rock with money stuffed in their mattress. I really hate that politics has turned into a team sport. Which team are you; red, blue, or "other"?
At least, through all of this chaos, I have the solace of computer component reviews. It's something that can take my mind off of all this insanity. One component that there is an endless supply of is computer cases. IN WIN has been seen to put out some very affordable and stylish cases. All of the cases that I've reviewed have been very solid with both design and features. Visually, my favorite IN WIN cases are the Wavy and the H-Frame. If you haven't seen it, I recommend looking up the X and H-frame cases.
The IN WIN GRone is positioned to hit the mainstream gamer. The GRone uses a full tower design and contains features for both cooling and expansion. On top, IN WIN has included a SATA EZ-Swap module. The front contains two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. The GRone's cooling solution uses five 140mm fans and a simple fan controller. Three of the fans use red LEDs. On the side is a large transparent window. Internally, there are four 5.25" bays and eight 3.5" HDD bays. Only three 5.25" bays are externally accessible. The GRone is liquid cooling ready. A 360mm radiator can mount on the top while a 240mm can mount on the bottom of the interior. There is up to 365mm GPU size support. Cable management includes 20mm of space behind the motherboard tray and protected routing holes.
