The mini housing can inspire with a sleek design and a black, brushed and 4 mm thick aluminum surface. Nevertheless, it is placed in the housing mainly on a good cooling value. At both the side as well as on the lid can be found much mesh grid. The surface of the front is completely smooth and is only interrupted by the discreet IN WIN logo and the status LEDs.
The Chopin therefore is ideal for use on the desk or in the living room, where this gem adequately presented and both standing can also be accommodated lying. The aluminum front extends from the lid, from the front through to the floor and formed there the feet. This creates a particularly noble look, which is completed by the customizable I / O panels.
The power button, two USB 3.0 ports and two audio jacks are located on the I / O panel, located on the side of the housing, on which a large mesh screen was placed. The panel can be customized in the colors red, blue, green, orange or black color to your preferences.
Access to the interior design is also pretty easy here. Although the side doors are secured with screws, but only with two pieces are stuck on a comfortable folding mechanism that holds the two Panel. So a fast opening and closing is made relatively easy.
The interior itself has, thanks to the well-placed 150 Watt TFX PSU with 80 Plus Bronze certification, enough space for a Mini-ITX motherboard with a CPU cooler to 43 mm height. The innovative dual-layout structure two 2.5-inch hard disks or SSDs can be installed on the back of Mainboardtrays. The efficient power supply provides the other "innards" with up to 150 Watt output and is on the 12V rail up to 10A ready.
More power is not needed for such compact systems, since the components to be installed are already designed for high efficiency and modern CPUs are even equipped with integrated graphics units, which power-hungry graphics cards often become obsolete.
