InWin introduced the POC origami case: a series of sheets of metal that you have to bend yourself

InWin has released an innovative POC computer case. Unlike most traditional computer cases that come pre-assembled, InWin’s new product needs to be finished by yourself. At the same time, the assembly process itself is similar to folding a cardboard box.

The case comes in a flat cardboard box, inside which the owner is not expected to find an assembled structure, but a set of sheets 0.8 mm thick with marked fold lines.

InWin POC gets its final shape after bending the panels in specific places to create their volume. The manufacturer claims that the material is pliable and can withstand multiple cycles of flexion-extension.

Despite its compact dimensions when assembled, InWin POC allows the installation of very powerful computer components. Here you can install, for example, a standard-sized power supply (up to 160 mm long), a graphics card up to 3.5 slots thick, up to 346 mm long and up to 82 mm wide, as well as CPU coolers up to 142 mm high. The case also offers space for a 2.5-inch drive.

Separate memory space is allocated for the graphics card. This allows you to extract heat from it more efficiently and also prevents additional heating from other PC components. The InWin POC package also includes a PCI-Express 4.0 riser adapter.


The owner is also asked to organize the ventilation of the POC case himself. The sheet metal serving as the front panel has a series of symmetrical cuts. They can be bent to create additional fresh-skin flow to the components.


The connectors on the front of the novelty consist of one USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C, two USB 3.2 Gen1 and one combo 3.5 audio output.

The assembled InWin POC case measures 256 x 278 x 423 mm and weighs 4 kg. In addition to the PCIe 4.0 riser adapter, the package includes a 120 mm InWin Luna AL120 fan for the rear wall.

The company has priced the POC case at $95.00/€99.00. In stores, the novelty will be available in two color combinations – black-blue and yellow-green.
