5/30/2012 11:26:58 AM

We have seen some tanks with quite nice open frame chassis previously were provided as a solution for those want to design, modify, upgrade and overclock like research their PC. But In Win XFrame is the perfect example, be most careful design of the this frame that we have encountered so far.

Description: In Win XFrame

As you wait, XFrame gives you open access to all types of components - after all, this is important point - but also many other things. Besides looks pretty nice and gives you a great portable handle, the X-shaped green aluminum frame with yellow rubber feet at each corner allow you to rotate the device that you put in XFrame by the way you want, as vertically and horizontally without sacrificing stability. Because the frame is quite light, we would be surprised if someone not does that.

In Win offers extensive support for advanced hardware on XFrame. It supports motherboard form factor up to E-ATX and has 8 expansion slots, so SLI or CrossFire configuration is not the problem. The chassis can accommodate up to 2 2.5-inch drives, 2 5.25-inch drive, and 6 3.5-inch drives, and it has the usual port array in the front panel (2 USB3.0, 2 USB2.0 and audio I/O), which is arranged along the thin silver surface runs across the vertical center of the front surface of XFrame.

XFrame motherboard tray is removable (a process without instruments), as well as the blue foot/handle. In Win also gives drive bay an unique locking mechanism: the screws that you use to tighten the drive rails to position into drive, and when you put the drives in the tray, slide head of the screw into the grooves on each side, you can lock the drive into place by pressing the orange lever in front of the drive bays.

These small details like this make XFrame flexible and easy to use. Cool metal tray can fold in one of 3.5-inch drive bays, which stores much chassis and motherboard screws to ensure that you will never have to find screws or wire when you swap new motherboard or add new memory card.

In Win offered XFrame retail price is $400. But XFrame is the case with limited edition aimed at a very special group of users, and with these people, it provides incredible usefulness and convenience, combined with sleek and sturdy structure makes it's worth for money.
