In the age of boring black monoliths, or loud glowy-blue ones, it's always a welcome change to see innovative open-air case designs. Take In Win's D-Frame, for example. Its design isn't much more than a thick steel roll-cage to which motherboard, PSU, and drive trays are latched onto, covered by little more than perforated metal sheets. The design allows you to both use it as an open-ended case while placing it by its sides (for overclocking), or upright, for spreading gobs and gobs of jelly at LAN-parties. Measuring about 305 x D668 x 482 mm, the D-Frame fits in standard ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX motherboards, with room for long PSUs, a 5.25-inch drive, three 3.5-inch ones, and two 2.5-inchers.

Looks like a dust-magnet and lots of wasted space.

Nice to see another case with the mobo turned 90° though. That orientation seems to benefit GPU temps pretty well.

I looks like a fancy test-bench and if it's marketed towards those who run tech benches, then dust is not an issue. I think your right about the wasted space though. Still overall a neat idea and very different from other cases releasing this year.

During 10 years there have been construction sites in my nearby area and dust was an issue. Now that everything has been build, the air is noticeable cleaner and dust has stopped being an time-wasting issue. And not everyone lives in the middle of the Sahara 8)

I think it's a pretty nifty idea, personally. I don't like the orange color, but hey, that's why we're modders.
