InWin D-Frame Mini mITX Case Review

featured image

Introduction Sometimes when you plan out your PC build, you want something that really stands out from the crowd. Price be damned, you want your rig to grab everyone’s attention in the extreme. To that end, there aren’t really a great deal of options out there that deviate much from the standard rectangular prism layout we’ve all come to expect. Things get even more limited when you start to discuss the prospect of an mITX system being the focus of the build; short of making something from scratch, your options get even more constricted. What’s a system builder to do?   If money is no object and you want opulence in the most functional way possible, InWin may have something that’s right up your alley. As of late they are most well known for their artful use of aluminum and tempered glass in cases like the S-Frame, the 901/904, and the D-Frame, and today I’m gonna take a look at the D-Frame’s little brother, the D-Frame Mini. Equipped with the same tubular aluminum and open-air design as its larger sibling, I’m going to see if this form factor does an mITX system any justice, and decide if the 300 dollar premium is really worth it in the end. I’d like to take a moment to share the InWin logo story straight from their website:

TRENDnet Launches AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router TORRANCE, Calif. – January 5, 2015 – TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router, model TEW-828DRU, a next generation WiFi router featuring three concurrent wireless networks-two separate ultra-performance 1,300 Mbps WiFi AC networks and a 600 Mbps WiFi N network.   The average North American home has almost 10 WiFi-networked devices. Globally, there are currently 16 billion WiFi devices connected to the internet and that number is projected to more than double by 2020 1. TRENDnet’s TEW-828DRU is designed to effortlessly and intelligently manage the tremendous growth of WiFi devices in the home. SmartConnect technology virtually combines the router’s two separate 1,300 Mbps WiFi AC bands, so that only one WiFi AC network is visible, while managing each band individually. Slower WiFi AC devices are grouped together and assigned to the lower performing WiFi AC band and faster WiFi AC devices are moved to the highest performing WiFi AC band-thereby optimizing the WiFi speeds of each connected device. Networking throughput is further bolstered by an extreme performance 1 GHz dual core processor and by Broadcom’s second generation 5G WiFi XStream platform. The TEW-828DRU sports six high performance external antennas, all Gigabit network ports, and USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 share ports. Six high-end WiFi amplifiers maximiz...


DeepCool Displays a new sense of style at CES

PENTOWER PENTOWER is constructed from trestles,panels and aluminum shell. The unprecedented pentagonal prism structure has made the case to be an artistic product on table. In order to make a neat and tidy lay out, we place the motherboard supporter at one corner, and graphic card at opposite. By using PCI-E extender, these two core components become nearly parallel rather than vertical. The remaining space is filled with 1×3.5 hard drive bay, 2×2.5 hard drive bay and one slot-load optical drive which can be changed to one 2.5 hard drive bay.     There is a cable management channel in the central of the case, components are connected as easy as in traditional cases, in fact the whole installation process could be more easier; after the shell is removed, all of the panels and trestles are exposed, users can install units directly without uninstall any other part of the case. The case adopts horizontal airflow channel, the heat ventilation performance is excellent, because of warm air rising.     Tristellar 3 independent cabins constitutes this unique and amazing case. Each cabin includes one of the most heat generating parts of a PC. Motherboard cabin supports ITX motherboard, 2×3.5 drive bays or 120mm liquid radiator/case fan (after remove the drive bays) and low profile CPU air cooler. Graphic cabin supports VGA card up to 320mm, which is connected to motherboard by PCI-E extension cable, behind the GPU, there are three tool-free 2.5 d...
