Assembly of the InWin D-Frame
Following the instruction in two page steps at the moment, so far I was shown to put rubber spacers on the 12mm thick motherboard tray, and then gently place the four parts of the outer shell in line for the next bit of hardware to lock these all into place.
Along with a pair of center hold spacers, one in each side, you have to thread the rod through the rubber spacer in the middle, then into the opposite sides spacer. Once that is all good to go, you can then slide the metal spacer into this end to lock the threaded rod into the chassis.
Once you have that step completed on all four corners, it is time to grab the nuts and the wrenches. Because the rod will spin, you get two wrenches to install these axel-like bars. With a wrench on either side, just tighten things until they are snug - if you tighten things too tight, you may chip the paint.
Stepping back, you can see I have all four of the rods in with all the spacers, and now have them tightened so we can continue on with the building of the D-Frame.
Then it tells you to grab the adjustable PSU plate that will allow for up to 220mm long power supplies, and with the use of large thumbscrews, you can snug it anywhere in the oblong holes in the frame for now.
The next step to the D-Frame is to grab a pair of hex head screws and with that long screwdriver, go ahead and install the expansion card support to the motherboard tray. A way to be sure you are in the right area is if there are the grooves cut for the tabs on the expansion cards right next to where you are installing this.
At the same time, since I had that screwdriver in hand, I added in the four fan brackets along with the three bay 3.5" drive rack. The rack uses large head screws on the sides that will drop into the grooves. With the latch on the left side, you can slide the lock bar closed to hold drives in that cage.
