Kingwin has recently been making some waves in the case industry with the success of its KT-436 case.  The striking Lian Li resemblance and relatively low price have turned a few heads in the case community.  Why has this case become so popular suddenly?

A few weeks ago we took a look at a case based on the Chenming Tower design, the ThermalTake A6000B.  This week we are taking a look at the Kingwin 436-WM model case, which happens to be Kingwin’s first attempt at a case and mod hardware.

Since PC modifications are usually fairly expensive, the KT-436-WM aims to appeal to consumers who want a very attractive case but don’t want to do the work or spend additional aftermarket cash.  Features aside, we will also be taking a good look at the performance of this highly modified case to see if the 436-WM is really about more than just good looks.
