In Win is a Taiwanese manufacturer of computer components that has made a good impression at Bigbruin.com. While they manufacture such things as computer cases, power supplies, and digital storage devices, it is their cases (particularly of the mATX variety), that have been the focus of most reviews.
Continuing our series of reviews featuring interesting mATX cases provided by In Win USA, we now come to the BK623 Mt. Jade mATX Case with 300W Power Supply. The promotional image above provides a quick look at the BK623, but it will take a much in depth look to appreciate the interesting features, performance, and extremely small foot print of what In Win describes as a "Tiny Tower Chassis".

The In Win BK623 ships in a rather generic box, much like another In Win case we recently looked at, the BT611. In Win described the packaging for the BT611 as being for the OEM integrator market, and I would assume the same is true for the BK623. Despite being packed for non-retail sales, both cases can be purchased by end users and we will look into that towards the end of the review.
