In Win H-Fame Miniaturized to ITX Specifications

In Win unveiled the H-Frame Mini, an adaptation of the original for mini-ITX motherboards. The 263 x 122 x 273 mm case is little more than a stack of metal plates held together by bolts, which make room for the motherboard tray, and other components. Little is known about the H-Frame Mini, other than its included 120W power supply, color options, and USB 3.0-equipped front-panel.

Looks nice... Good luck cleaning dust from your server every 2-3 days :nutkick:

Nope. Servers (at least home servers, not corporate servers) run not hot usually, so I would build a passively cooled box that does not suck air in.

In win making something which is actually kind of appealing.
Only if I could find a mini ITX for a 775skt CPU.

The Intel DQ45EK is actually readily avaliable here at about €130.

Some versions of the 9300-itx are still available on the Zotac site, perhaps you can order one directly, and the 9300 is very good for watching movies and also runs some old games quite well.

I need more details about this. A front pic only is half the story. Well, patience is a virtue.

Agreed.

A friend of mine told me this week he wanted to build a new computer(meaning "I" will be building him a new computer)He also said he saw a cool case he wanted(the big H-Frame) I flat out told him, that case is not for you. You don't dust your PC as it is. Keep looking :rolleyes:

Nice. It's simple to build and no power-brick (hopefully, it doesn't really specify the configuration of the 120w). While I don't like a lot of what In-Win does today, they still put out a model here and there that piques my interest.

As for dust, I don't really see the problem? It's an open-frame case so you don't have to take anything apart. Two of the systems here I have to open up and blow out about once/month. Wife's system has a single intake fan with a filter, so I only have to clean it out every three months.


And since I already have it uploaded... classic In-Win! http://theburnerishot.com/photo/In-Win-Q500.jpg

Except for the power supply, I bet you can make your own case by just buying the plates and making cuts. A wooden version maybe... modders would have fun

Would make for a neat looking HTPC, I was able to pick this thing up and look at it at CES, and the quality is quite good.
