Hey all, So it's about time for a new build! And I've decided to push the boundaries a little bit for this case mod, and go for something more 'outside the box'. I went on a hunt for a case that was a little bit more unusual, something slightly different from the standard six-sided box (as much as a like my old TJ07). I was also after something a little smaller, for ease of portability. But above anything else, a case that looks fantastic, and has great modding potential. So here it is then, the In Win D-Frame Mini. I saw this at a tech show a few months back and was instantly taken by its unique tubular design juxtaposed with tempered glass sides. More so, watercooling this (currently) Mini-ITX case seemed an achievable task, and instantly had a few mods in mind. The tempered glass sides add a touch of class, juxtaposing the tubular frame really nicely. I'm really impressed with the overall build quality on this case, particularly the precision machined motherboard tray - I've never seen a mobo tray so thick! Front I/O ports and switches couldn't be much more accessible. Without the glass, the case is fully exposed. Hard drive trays and a 240mm radiator mounting bracket are now on show (not that either are staying for long!) The handle is really well positioned, and makes moving this lightweight case a piece of cake. There's no end of perspectives in here! Probably the easiest 'mod' of the build - swapping out those stock red feet with some black ones - looking stealthy! Thanks to In Win for sorting this D-Frame Mini out! I’m taking this build on alongside MikeMK, and we've got a series of interesting mods lined up for it: • Fitting an mATX Motherboard into this Mini-ITX tower • Mounting a 360mm radiator instead of a 240mm • Full hardline watercooling loop Having often opted for the blue colour scheme in builds, I wanted to mix it up a little bit. As you may have guessed by the project logo, we're going Turquoise. There's a fair amount of cable braiding, motherboard painting, and coolant mixing ahead of us! The nature of this open air chassis means noise is an important factor, which is why I’m really excited to have Be Quiet! On side for the build, thanks to the guys over there for providing the new Dark Power Pro 11 850W PSU and three Silent Wings 2 120mm fans for the radiator. I'm really impressed with the look and feel of the Dark Power Pro, a very sleek finish which deserves to be on show! After reading the raving reviews, I was keen to get this in the build. I've heard great things about these Silent Wings, 50.5cfm at 16.5dB speaks for itself (or should i say whispers!) Thanks again Be Quiet! will look at these products in a little more detail when I get them running! Finally, the motherboard. The ASRock Fatal1ty ticks all boxes. Except the colour. The red won't be staying. Here's the spec low-down (for now): Hardware: CPU: Intel I7 5820K Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2666Mhz GPU: MSI Radeon R9 290X Sound Card: TBC SSD: TBC PSU: Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W Watercooling CPU Block: TBC GPU Blocks: TBC Radiators: TBC Tubing & Fittings: TBC Reservoir: TBC (Still some work to do on the WC setup!). I'm expecting this project to be ongoing for the next month or two, kicking off with the mATX mod and a bit of braiding. That's it for now, stay tuned!
