InWin D-Frame Chassis Components




The four red painted tubular structures are what I have here. Closest to you is the floor of the chassis with the top of the chassis behind it and slightly left. Standing up on the right side is the front of the chassis with the rear of the chassis lying next to the floor piece.




When you start digging into the box, you find the 12mm thick motherboard tray that I referred to as the backbone of this chassis. Standing up in the back of this image are the tinted and tempered glass panels, to close off the sides of the D-Frame.




Under the glass you will find more goodies in various compartments cut into the foam. Here we have the three bay 3.5" drive rack with the number plaque on it, the front I/O panel, four 120mm fan mounting bracket and the eight slot expansion card bracket.




In the other compartments there is the red PSU mounting plate and a single 5.25" bay in the front. In the back is the box with all of the hardware inside for building the chassis and getting the components mounted later along with the leather wrapped tool kit specifically for the D-Frame.




Since we are about to jump right into the chassis build, and the tools are needed for some of that, I figured why not show them now. After untying, unwrapping, and removing them from their individual pockets, you will find two 12mm open and closed end wrenches along with a really long Phillip's #2 screwdriver to make life very easy for this build.
