InWin’s Signature Yǒng: A $4000 PC Case Designed by Customersby Anton Shilov on June 4, 2019 2:00 PM EST
There are many expensive highly-customizable PC cases on the market these days, but for some people even the fanciest chassis is not enough. For customers looking for something completely exclusive, InWin introduced its Signature Yǒng: a PC case that users can design themselves and have it 3D printed and processed by Inwin.
Designed after butterfly pupation processes and various organic forms, InWin’s Yǒng is a full-tower E-ATX open-air chassis compatible with a variety of motherboards, graphics cards and cooling systems. The case still has a metallic carcass for installing PC components as well as a metallic stand. That carcass has USB and audio connectors, everything you expect from a normal desktop.
To get a Yǒng, users will have to go to InWin’s website, choose their concept, customize it however they want and then the company will produce it and ship it to them. Production process includes 13 steps: InWin 3D prints the form, then it polishes it, paints it, glazes it, paints again, polishes again (not necessarily in the exact order though). In fact, the process looks similar to that used to paint premium cars, only InWin’s workers do loads of things manually.
Each Yǒng has its own unique number and since users can customize it above and beyond, each Yǒng chassis is exclusive. That uniqueness will come at a price. Each Yǒng from InWin will cost around $4,000. Meanwhile, the Signature Yǒng will not be InWin’s most expensive chassis as it will still sit below last year’s Z-Tower Silver that comes at a price of $5,500.
