Ahead of its formal unveiling in the sidelines of Computex 2014, In Win showed us the compact version of its iconic D-Frame chassis, the D-Frame Mini. Designed for mini-ITX motherboards, the case is practically open-air, with smoked acrylic panels lining two of its sides, and the various enclosures clinging on to its rod-frame. Unlike the original, the D-Frame Mini features a black main frame, and doesn't end up looking like construction scaffolding. The case has enough room for a high-end ITX build, complete with liquid cooling, a high-end PSU, multiple 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives; and so on. We'll get you the specifics soon.

I wish someone would sell a motherboard tray like that for a good price. I don't need the cage.

That is the ugliest case I've seen in a long time. I presume they had a plumber's idea of a PC in mind when they designed this case :shadedshu:

I think they gave it exactly enough room for a 12" card. Judging by the motherboard standoffs and knowing from other photos that the 120mm x 2 fan mount does not get in the way of the video card, an R9-295x2 seems very possible.

It seems that my concerns are premature. Base plate 17mm and 15mm at least free. Radiators should also be able tobildup not to mention 4 hard drives or 3 hard drives and optical unit ... the first picture is this all seemed much smaller .Dust filters are necessary !Or every 2 months will require a complete cleaning action..looks nice but is very impractical solution.Of course you can add filters to the radiator fan .Decisions and the Budget ....but would not wandering around with such case as the glass is too sensitive but precisely because they allegedly have a framework. Thick plexi would be needed .
