Inside the D-Frame Mini
Without the glass impeding on our view, we get a good sense of the motherboard tray and the ninety degree orientation. While the hardware is shipped in a box outside of the chassis, we do see the wiring is tended to as not to accidentally cause paint blemished or scratch the glass.
This is where you are to install storage drives. Each plate screws into the chassis to make mounting a drive easier, and are also drilled for 3.5" or 1.5" drive use.
The motherboard tray offers four locations for standoffs, and a few smaller cut outs to allow for wiring. The lower section of the tray offers larger holes, but is also where smaller holes denoted for SSDs can be mounted as well.
At the floor of the chassis in its current orientation, Inwin changed from the single fan brackets in the original to a dual 120mm fan bracket that is also spaced correctly for an AIO or custom radiator.
That just leaves us with the look out the back of this chassis where we highlight the D-Frame Mini naming cut into the plate in its proper readable orientation. Although not as obvious, even with a PSU installed, the naming is still identifiable.
Behind the motherboard tray, there is about 20mm from the plate to the inside of the glass. While there appears to be no wire management support, they have you covered there using just screw holes to accomplish it.
To help hide the wiring behind the glass, all of it is sleeved black. This will reduce the clutter and simplify connecting the front I/O panel LEDs, switches, and native USB 3.0, and HD audio connections.
