As part of its 30th anniversary celebration and the 2016 signature product series, In Win announced the availability of D-Frame 2.0 worldwide. The D-Frame 2.0’s unique open-frame structure provides an unparalleled view of the internal hardware from any angle.
Embodying the spirit and strength of an off-road motorcycle, the D-Frame 2.0 is the perfect combination of craftsmanship and technology. The D-Frame 2.0 will come in a variety of colors such as: black-and-gold, green and blue-and-white. Targeting gamers and PC modders, the handcrafted metal structure has an innovative, two-way opening mechanism, with quick-release fasteners that allows for easy hardware installation. The motherboard mounting tray is first sandblasted to achieve a refined metallic texture, then TIG (tungsten inert gas) welded in place to reinforce stability. Finally, a unique electro-deposition process creates its ultra-smooth finish.
The two tempered glass side panels are retained with In Win 30th anniversary commemorative thumbscrews, and there are specific accommodation for water cooling hardware and high-end components that are typically paired with In Win’s signature chassis. The D-Frame 2.0 has an innovative and flexible internal layout that allows multiple positioning of: storage, (up to 4x multifunctional brackets) fans, (using the 2x 120mm fan brackets and 1x 3-in-1 fan bracket) water cooling radiators (using the 360mm bracket) and/or a pump/reservoir within the chassis. The brackets use captive screws that provide secure fastening and ease of assembly.
Internally, the motherboard tray supports E-ATX, ATX and micro-ATX sizes with CPU heatsinks up to 165mm high, and up to eight expansion slots featuring graphics cards up to 415mm long. The front panel I/O consists of the latest USB 3.1 Type-C connector, three USB 3.0 ports and HD stereo audio jacks.
In Win has paired the D-Frame 2.0 with the SIII-1065W power supply; In Win’s second power supply with transparent sections, constructed from high-quality aluminium and tempered glass. The SIII-1065W is designed and manufactured by In Win. It is designed in the shape of an air-cooled engine with aluminium alloy top cover. Internally, it’s constructed using premium 105ºC Japanese aluminum electrolytic capacitors, a double EMI filter, a full bridge with LLC and a 165mm smart fan for silent operation. Overall this provides an efficiency of up to 92 percent. There are four, selectable power modes for internal modular ports, and a rear 3-Amp USB port for high-performance mobile charging. Its fully modular design with low-profile cables simplifies installation and focuses on the neatest, cleanest looking PC build.
