Welcome everyone to a new log and let me introduce the willing participant,the In Win D Frame MINI!

After the S3,which is far too large for a LAN box like originally planned,I wanted a smaller footprint and something a bit more aesthetically pleasing,so,after seeing this gorgeous case at Computex,I made some inquiries at In Win and here is the result!

Some of you may have seen this case about and,if you follow any of my forum witterings,probably know already that I had this coming.
The case is a tubular spaceframe design made with Alu tube and,quite frankly,a mobo tray that is a structural grade piece of kit! The tempered glass is a lovely thing to see and is common place on all the high end In Win chassis.

Shall we have a walk round the case then?











You have never seen a mobo tray that thick,guarantee it!



You can have the PSU either way,up or down.



Massively thick HDD and SSD mounts.



Backside of the tray.





Tray out!







The whole tray is decluttered,this ITX case has ambition....



This mod is changing the standard ITX flavour into mATX!





As you can see,you get a substantial case for you money,the anodized frame is nice and well finished and no skimping on materials,Im looking forward to working on it......


First thing is to strip the anodizing ready for some lovely paint,I know I just praised the coating quality and it seems like it would be a waste to strip it but it will be worth it!

The paint I will be using for the frame is....





Also,sadly,that mobo tray is also going for a 25mm sandwich tray that will carry all the cabling,most of the watercooling routing and an integrated reservoir.
As always,the aim is a clean looking build,no faff or fluff but details to keep you entertained!

LET THE BUILD COMMENCE!!


Magoo insists that he is project lead on this.......He isnt but you know....he thinks he is.....

Sub'd! Woo! wheee.gif

PS. Is this the case that was under NDA, or is that still to come?

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity

Subbed! Never seen the smaller version (this one) of the D frame so I'm excited to see where this build will go.

Like everyone on this site, I am still learning. If I ever make a mistake or a bad recommendation, please let me know so that I can learn from it

Normally Im waiting for hardware but not this time.ASUS provided the Gryphon z97,a modders favorite for very obvious reasons and I have a pair of cards with tidy Watercool blocks ready to go. I rounded of the waterblocks with a MIPS Iceforce HF,an awesome block which sadly isnt available easily now since MIPS closed their doors. A major loss to the watercooling world...





The thickest hold down you will ever see!





You just dont see a finish like the finish you get with MIPS....



On to another of my favorite block makers,this time the German outfit,Watercool.













The DC i7 looks like a promising candidate or I may just recycle the 4770k in CLoS3 IMPACT,I dont want to go mad as there a x99 rig coming up in the next few months....

Looks promising as always B. but didn't we agree on not posting porn on this forum? stop spamming photos like this.. biggrin.gif

Talking serious. how was the packaging for the InWin. for me it's as important as the build quality looking at that tampered glass.. the packaging material should be great or this will be a DOA side window every time..

New member? Cool, welcome to the forums and Why don't fill in your rig specs so we can help you

Packing was great,foam spacers and the case comes in it own bag. It got to me from Taiwan with nothing else wrapped around completely intact.
