InWin D-Frame Limited Edition Open-Air Chassis Review

Assembly of the InWin D-Frame Continued




On the front of the hard drive rack there is a plate that is riveted to it. Here you will find the name of the chassis, and that it is limited edition. When you buy this in the retail market, the "Review Sample" will be replaced with XXX/500 in that area.




On the left is the front I/O panel with the braided and black plastic covered leads coming from it. To the right, if you don't plan to use this space, you can flip the box and put the InWin name to the front of the chassis. If you plan to use this, it needs to be reversed.




Looking into the front of the chassis to see the I/O and drive bay, you can see the front I/O offerings of the HDD LED, HD audio jacks, USB 3.0 ports, a tiny reset button and a power button with an LED denoting system power. As for the bay below it, I will fill it, so it will get reversed so you can see how it works.




One of the final steps is going back to the hardware bags and grabbing the rubber spacers to space the metal from the glass. You can see the inside of the washers are cut to accept the threaded rod and the nut, this way they sit flush and cover the hardware to clean things up.




We are almost finished as I added the tinted glass panel to the right side of the chassis. You can see the aluminum corner brackets that support the glass and allow you a place to tighten the large cap nut that holds the glass to the chassis in each corner.




The last step for full assembly is to repeat what we just did on the right side, but this time on the left. So now both sides are enclosed enough to keep little hands or pets from getting in, although with the wide open frame design, there are plenty of other options for way to get into this chassis.
