InWin’s Chopin Returns, But Bigger

Press Release: When an article is marked as such, it is posted verbatim from a Manufacturer’s text, and does not reflect the views or opinions of SFF.Network.

InWin has today announced its new Chopin MAX Mini-ITX PC chassis, which offers greater component compatibility and more cooling potential to provide users more powerful small form factor setups than ever in a beautifully designed brushed aluminium enclosure that sits proudly on any desk or furnishing.

Now with 25 percent more heatsink clearance (up to 54 mm), the Chopin MAX supports both AMD and Intel stock CPU coolers on their latest respective platforms. The newly redesigned perforated mesh panel increases the ventilation surface area to enhance the speed of heat dissipation. An included 200 W, 80 PLUS Gold PSU provides excellent power efficiency and minimal noise. The front panel I/O now features a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port capable of 20 Gbps performance, which is four times faster than standard USB 3.0. Despite its smaller size, the Chopin MAX supports two 2.5-inch SSDs situated on a user-friendly installation plate. There’s also direct accessibility to the rear of the motherboard tray where some Mini-ITX board designs offer an additional M.2 SSD port.

Available in titanium grey, black and silver, the single, seamless piece of 4 mm thick aluminium is bent and shaped around the three side edges, while a customizable I/O strip can add a unique personal flare, or to show synergy with a business brand color.

One of my favourite "off-the-shelf" mITX cases. I'm still running one with my OC'ed Pentium G3258 and RX 460 (yessss) stuffed in the SSD compartment.

The subtle changes are nice, the motherboard cutout is handy, the new PSU and USB-C connector bring it into this decade and the extra CPU heatsink clearance is the cherry on top.

Theoretically you don't, if you don't mind an extra computer somewhere in the house, for the streaming of games or rendering :)
At that point an APU would suffice.

I thought surely an increase in size means support for LP dGPUs. Nope, still APU only. What's the point then?
