While Corsair's 600T has so far stolen all the limelight when it comes to new cases from Computex, In-Win had some daring - if far-fetched concept models on show that were well worth a look.

Designers Sharon Liao, Yayu Huang and Johnny Hsu from In-Win received an iF award for product design for the Silencer. Decked out in clean-room white plastic, the Silencer looks more space age than NASA. The case includes an attractive clean look, side ventilation with rear exhausts and a special panel hung off the rear with professional noise-reducing foam insulation.

It's smart, however we have to say concept is probably where it should stay since its booty is particularly large (although I hear some people like that kind of thing) and the plastic is clean and shiny but for some, oh-so-tacky: it feels like a toy rather than a professional product. The dangly bit on the back is non removable and doesn't leave much room for plugging cables in, let alone space for adapters. Evidently the iF people may know a lot about style but little about product use, but we'll still give In-Win kudos for trying something new.

Do you fancy owning something that looks it it belongs in 2001: A Space Odyssey? Let us know your thoughts, in the forums.
