    Hi everyone, here is my first scratch build!
    The case is inspired by In Win's D-Frame Mini.

    I would like to thank my sponsors: In Win Nederland , Aquatuning Europe, Antec Europe, MSI Europe,Patriot Memory and Noiseblocker.

    As I've said, the case is based on the D-Frame and D-Frame Mini, it is made using fir wood beams and planks.

    Now the sponsorships
    Aquatuning

    Here is how the sides of the case look like before gluing:

    The case after gluing, I had to use screws to reinforce the frame.

    If you don't make a wicker fan grill for this I will be extremely upset.

    Update :D
    I mounted the motherboard and CPU block, and made a stand for the 240mm radiator using two square metal beams.

    Just to make clear, you basically made your own copy of the D-frame in wood??? WOW! Impressive work! I love the color, how did you make it? :)

    The frame is so clean, but all the modern screws isn't really discrete, I think that is what he means :) They sort of break the pattern :p :)

    Pretty much, the overall shape is based on the D-Frame Mini while the actual size of the case is more or less the size of the D-Frame.

    The dark color is due to the lacquer used, there are two coats on the case.
    Thanks :)

    I know, but I don't trust adhesive, so screws for the trays especially for the motherboard tray.

    Update: The Power Supply is fitted to the rest of the system, the Antec HCP Platinum is one of the best :)
    , this one is the 850W variant.

    Almost the final update - mounted the reservoir and now filling the loop :)
    Unfortunately one of my two Graphics Cards got water all over it so this project unfortunately will not feature a GPU.
