In Win has launched its second open-air case, the aptly named D-Frame 2.0. The upgraded case will be available in various colors such as Black & Gold, Green, and Blue & White. It also happens to be among the first cases on the market to feature USB 3.1 Type-C ultra-high speed ports that provide up to 10Gbps transmission speed.
The design of the case has been inspired by the freedom, individuality, and impulsive nature of off-road motorcycles. It combines steel tubing, anti-flip foot pads, deep tire treads, and a power supply in the shape of an air-cooled engine. The sides get tempered glass to create what the company claims is a “perfect fusion of art and technology.” The metallic tubing structure of the case is entirely crafted by human hands, using TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding to ensure reinforced stability and an ultra-smooth finish. Outer frame of the case features a two-way open design with quick-release fasteners, allowing for easier assembling and custom display platforms. Apart from being visually appealing, the open-frame structure is also claimed to help with heat dissipation and airflow.
The case can accommodate an E-ATX motherboard, VGA cards up to 415mm in length, and CPU coolers up to 165mm in height. For storage, the case offers four multifunctional brackets for 2.5”/3.5” drives. On the front, you will be getting three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, and an HD audio port. The case can also support up to 8 PCI-E expansion slots. Each D-Frame 2.0 case comes included with a SIII-1065W power supply which has been exclusively designed for the case. It doesn’t come pre-installed with any fan though. You do get fan brackets for up to three 120mm fans on the front or top of the case, and a rear 120mm exhaust fan.
The In Win D-Frame 2.0 measures 548 x 291 x 726mm and weighs in at a hefty 22.5 kg. For now, the case is on sale only in Europe with a price tag of EUR1,299.
