    In Win Development Inc., multiple winner of internationally renowned design awards, has announced its innovative new 5th generation concept, the limited edition S-Frame, is now available to buy.

    Awarded 'Best Design of Computex 2014' by Tom's Hardware, for "not only [an award for] the S-Frame chassis, but also for In Win's impressive manufacturing skills", the S-Frame open-air chassis is constructed from 2 meters squared of CNC cut 4 mm aluminum that is then hand-bent 15 times into its unique shape; thus combining the most unconventional craftsmanship techniques to create impeccable artistry.

    The red anodized edges on the black backbone draw the eye to its angles, while seamlessly showing the beautiful texture of its brushed hairline along the metal curves. The sides are made from 5 mm tempered glass, continuing the premium materials theme and to give a clear view of the PC inside.

    Internally it supports ATX or micro ATX motherboards, ATX power supplies up to 220 mm and up to four 2.5/3.5 inch drives. Cooling is aided by 3x 120 mm bottom fan mounts or a 360 mm liquid cooling radiator instead, or elsewise air cooling heatsinks up to 195 mm tall. Front panel connectors include four USB 3.0 and HD audio 3.5 mm microphone and headphone jacks. Total size is 560 x 313 x 755 mm (22" x 12.3" x 29.7").

    Each S-Frame in the first batch is numbered 1-500 to ensure exclusivity, for more information, please see www.inwin-style.com.

    Problem with InWin is they are undoubtedly going to cost a thousand dollars each, like the rest of their cases. It's been ages since they made a case for "regular" enthusiasts around the £150/$225 mark that can fit sensible hardware in.

    Review was already rendered not one of the offered shortcuts and there it was shown that there is a whole bunch of bad solutions! They will all cables hanging because there is no one carrier or clamp in the back panel and optical unit that could easily find a place next to the front USB outputs moudeng will be nesessery . As far as the carrier for radijator below is limited to 3x120mm. (cood be 140mm, best will be adet Moria radiator awey from PC unit) subsequently, of course, will need to obtain the dust filters....A lot of this is what is missing in the chassie so costly and well that only 750 pieces made ,so only 750 will be disappointed .

    It's pretty easy to understand what he's saying, the case is not practical, lacks radiator mount options, will attract dust, has bad cable management, and that the few people that get a hold of these, and can afford to, will be disappointed by the impracticality for their beautiful components.

    I doubt the 500 people who buy this case for what will probably be well over $500 will be disappointed with its impracticality. That's kind of the point of the case. That's like saying someone who buys an open air test bench will be disappointed with the poor sound deadening. Or complaining about the lack of trunk space in a Lotus. The people who buy this will know exactly what they are getting and have s system planned around the case's design. If they wanted practical, with cable management, radiator support and dust filtration, there are hundreds of high-end cases for less than half the price.

    i have to say the design is nice, very very out of the box
    but with that design they should consider how to prevent the dust accumulated inside the case

    Wait a sec! Just for the sake of education, LOL. Since 1 year (check my posts) I have their H-Frame and dust is not a problem, being an open case, air inside has same temperature as ambient air. I have only one fan pushing air in and its set to stay off most of the day. So dust is really not an issue. It is also solid, it does not bend, not vibe, and easy to service. If I had to complain, it is too beautifull to mod it in any form or degree :)

    Pure Casing Awesomeness!! The Sea Serpent roams free!! :p

    P.S

    I am well aware one of these will never be in my hands, but maan it looks so cool. I'd be even more enthusiastic about it, if they make mini-ITX version. Or if some modding studio offers to make me one ;)
