InWin DUBILI case unboxing/instruction manual Ceiling: 3D teaching app
The InWin DUBILI case has debuted for sale in Taiwan, fully assembled. However, only the European and American e-commerce platforms are offering the version that requires assembly from individual parts. With dimensions resembling a traditional tower case, the DUBILI features two 4mm aluminum alloy handles, a 1.2mm SECC galvanized steel plate, and tempered glass components. For the Taiwanese market, aside from the pre-assembled structure, the case also comes with 4 InWin Jupiter AJ140 fans pre-installed.
The DUBILI can accommodate a range of motherboards, including the larger E-ATX boards measuring up to 12″ x 13″, as well as the widely-used ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX boards. It offers 8 PCIe slots for expansions and has dedicated spaces for storage devices: 2 slots for 3.5″/2.5″ drives and 4 slots for 2.5″ drives. When it comes to cooling, the case can fit up to eight 120mm fans and is also compatible with 140mm fans. For water cooling, radiators of sizes 420mm or 360mm can be placed in the front, while the top can house either a 280mm or 360mm radiator. Important to note, the CPU cooler height should not exceed 160mm, and the graphics card can be as long as 430mm. The case also features a simplistic support bracket for the graphics card.
The DUBILI in “milk champagne gold” primarily showcases a champagne gold hue with a hairline finish on its U-shaped aluminum alloy frame. This is complemented by a cream-colored meshed front door made of steel and a transparent glass side. Every screw utilized for assembling the case bears the unique “iBuild” laser engraving. These internal hexagonal screws emphasize the distinctiveness and premium quality of the chassis. For the pre-assembled version, the foundational structure is based on the aluminum alloy frame.
InWin has traditionally offered QR-code scanning for downloading installation guides. However, with DUBILI, they’ve taken a step further by introducing a 3D instructional app available on both iOS and Android platforms. This interactive app provides comprehensive tutorials ranging from DIY case assembly to installing motherboards and HDDs. For SSD and GPU installation, the app uses 3D animations to guide users through the process, simplifying the experience, especially for beginners.

Pre-assembled: The aluminum foot pad model can also be modified into the aluminum handle model
The DUBILI comes with a pre-assembled aluminum alloy frame serving as its foundation. However, using such an elegant aluminum alloy frame solely as a handle seems like a missed opportunity. The package includes the main chassis base, screws, and rubber feet. Users can easily unscrew the four screws holding the aluminum alloy frame, reposition the original bottom frame to face upwards, secure the plastic base, attach the rubber feet, and the transformation is complete.
Upon closer inspection of the aluminum alloy frame, it’s evident that it boasts more than just a hairline treatment. The frame also features a diamond-cut finish, enhancing its sophisticated appearance. During the process of disassembly and reassembly, the intricately laser-engraved hexagon socket screws with the iBuild branding are unmistakable. Every component of the case is secured with these distinct screws, underscoring the exceptional quality and uniqueness of the case.
The case’s front features an elongated oval-shaped vent made of a steel plate, held in place by four hexagonal socket screws. By removing these screws, the steel plate can be detached. Beneath it, there’s a dust filter for added protection. Additionally, three InWin Jupiter AJ140 fans come pre-installed within this front section.
The glass panel on the left side is held in place by four hexagonal socket screws, with the glass being anchored by metal frames at both the top and bottom. It’s important to note that the glass side lacks an anti-fall mechanism. For safety reasons, it’s recommended to lay the case flat before loosening or unscrewing the panel.
Behind the case, above the motherboard’s rear I/O, there’s ample space specifically designed to accommodate the installation of an upper water cooling radiator. Further down, there are 8 PCIe expansion slots, alongside a designated area for housing a lower ATX power supply. On the right side, a panel is similarly anchored in place using four screws.
Atop the case, there’s a magnetic dust filter along with designated spots for fan and radiator installation. The front I/O panel features a power button, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port, as well as a 3.5mm jack for headphones and microphones.
No sub-compartments, pre-installed 4 x Jupiter AJ140 fans, 430mm graphics card supports
The DUBILI opts for a classic design with no subdivided compartments and a bottom-mounted power supply. Yet, it offers compatibility with larger E-ATX motherboards up to 12″ x 13″ in size. It can support graphics cards with lengths up to 430mm. However, the height allowance for CPU tower fans is limited to 160mm. Around the motherboard area, there are ample cutouts and cable management spaces on the top, right, and bottom. This design ensures users have the flexibility to neatly organize their wiring during assembly.
While the back of the case comes with fundamental cable management pre-installed, there’s potential for improvement, especially concerning the fan and RGB cables located in the upper right corner. DUBILI features 8 FAN and ARGB expansion hubs, ensuring ample room for users to expand their RGB fan setups. Additionally, the backside of the case is equipped with brackets for mounting two 2.5″ drives and two 3.5″ drives.

The DUBILI offers a straightforward installation process. Its design, devoid of sub-compartments and featuring a bottom-mounted power supply, simplifies assembly. However, a tip for those installing a 360mm radiator: it’s advisable to first connect the motherboard to the CPU power supply before mounting the radiator. While there’s ample space at the top of the case, if you choose to mount the radiator before making the CPU power connection, it might challenge your finger agility.
The DUBILI also comes with a straightforward L-shaped graphics card bracket. Simply place a rubber pad on the bracket’s front, then secure it at the necessary position for the graphics card, and you’re all set.
The versatile cable management bezel features 2.5” mounting holes on its upper side. These can be utilized either to the right of the motherboard or positioned below the graphics card.
The case’s rear features dedicated mounting brackets for both 2.5” and 3.5” devices, complete with specific fixing screws. These brackets can hold up to two 3.5” and four 2.5” devices. However, when setting up a storage device on the back panel, if your SATA power supply features a piercing connector, it might require some finesse. Due to the limited height clearance at the rear panel, connecting the piercing SATA power connector can be a tad challenging. You’ll need to apply some force to ensure a proper connection.
