In Win Unveils the D-Frame 2.0 Chassis

In Win today unveiled the second edition of its pioneering open-air case, the D-Frame. The new D-Frame 2.0 sets itself apart from its predecessor by adding a 2-tone color-scheme to its main chassis beams, and styling elements, without compromising on its core design principles. The case comes in 2-tone color options of black+gold, black+green, and white+blue. The case comes with tinted tempered glass side panels.

Inside, you get room for an E-ATX motherboard, graphics cards up to 35 cm long with the drive cages in place, up to 41.5 cm with them removed; CPU coolers as tall as 16.5 cm, and four 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drives. The case includes an In Win SIII 1065W PSU. Ventilation (besides the obvious openness), includes fan-brackets that hold on to two or three 120 mm fans along the front or top panels, and a rear 120 mm exhaust. Front panel connectivity includes USB 3.1 type-C and type-A ports. Measuring 548 mm x 291 mm x 726 mm (HxWxD), the case weighs about 22.5 including the PSU (those steel beams aren't hollow). The D-Frame 2.0, including its 1065W PSU, is priced at EUR 1,299€ (incl. VAT).

So happy I bought my H-Frame for less than 400 euro before this was trending upwards:-DDDDDDD
Dust is not a problem if anyone is interested, open cases need much less sucking in fan-dom LOL

I guess none of you have ever had an open chassis?
I'm running my HTPC/Streamer/media server in a Dimastech open workbench (only thing I had that would accept all the hardware) and I have no problems with dust...my InWin 707 gets dirtier than my open rig.
I am a heavy smoker, my PCs are in my kitchen (one room apartment) and I am not crazy about cleaning, and yet I have no problem keeping my open chassis clean...why can't you?

Keeping it clean is key here, sure if you have no issue with cleaning your PC every week....but for many of us that is a bit much.
And why would you, what is the point even of a case if you basically still have all the hardware out in the open?

The point of an "open chassis" in nearly all cases is that you can easily swap out parts so if you are doing benchmarking or reviews it makes sense.
But for the rest....yeah pointless.

Oh and you should stop smoking, bad for your health, bad for your wallet, bad for your surroundings.

Personally i like the rollbar design but with cables and cables it would ruin the looks, maybe they can put some cover on it and yes its a dust catcher

My point was that you don't have to clean an open chassis more often than a closed one (depending on the quality of dust filters and cooling setup)...and it's a lot easier to clean an open chassis, since everything is right in front of you.
I started using an open bench as a temporary measure, but now I've decided to keep it that way. I like the way it looks, I like having the components easily available and I like the ease of cleaning.
As for my smoking...are you my mother, because you sure as hell sound like she used to. ;-)

It looks like it's designed specifically for this D-Frame 2.0 case and actually looks pretty awesome installed in the front because it matches the design. Here's a link with detailed info about it and a picture of it installed in the front of the chassis.

They sure have a lot of style in many of their designs.
That PSU looks good all by itself.
