In Win D-Frame Mini-ITX Chassis Review


The interior of the chassis has room for a mini-ITX motherboard, which you install rotated 90 degrees; this means that your GPU will mount vertically.

The bottom fan mount will hold a pair of 120mm fans, or a 240mm radiator. Of course, there isn’t much need for fans in an open air chassis, so a radiator is a much more sensible option; perfect for cooling a heavily overclocked CPU.

The hard drive bays are all fully removable, this is great for modding the build, but it also means it’s easier to screw your hard drives into place. Each hard drive tray supports 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives.

There’s no back plate on this chassis, instead you’ll find a removable bracket to help screw your graphics cards in place; much better than just letting their weight hang from the motherboard.

Separating the main interior of the chassis and the PSU section is this lovely custom-cut panel with the chassis logo and a pair of large cut-outs to allow cable pass-through.

All interior cables have been treated to a nice black braiding, so not to spoil the overall style of the build.

The glass side panels are held in place with aluminium thumb screws, which sit over four rubber coated screws.

There’s plenty of space behind the motherboard for routing cables. However, you’ll need to take care to keep things tidy as all your cable work will be on show through the glass panels.
