PAX East seems like a weird place to announce a PC case as most things at the show are gaming related, but In Win was showing off two new cases at the event. The first is the D-FRAME 2.0, which of course is the successor to the original D-FRAME case. It features the same handcrafted metallic tubing structure that we saw on the original D-Frame, but now it has a 2-tone design with the front and top being metallic, and the bottom and back being black. Where the tubing connects is also accented in yellow.
While the case is open, it does have tempered glass panels on each side. The case is a full tower and supports graphics cards up to 415mm (without water or air cooling), 360mm radiator on top, along with 90mm on front, and 65mm on bottom.
It looks like In Win will be making use of their custom PSU on this case much like they did on the H-Frame 2.0 case. While you have the option of the custom power supply the case can also support normal ATX power supplies. The front of the case has a USB 3.1 Type-C connector, three USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connections. The D-FRAME 2.0 is expected to launch in Q3 of this year and will retail for $1000, or $1500 if you want it with the custom PSU.
In Win also was showing off the new 303 case. This mid-tower case will be available in black and white. The front of the case has a cool glowing In Win logo and it looks like the ports on the front light up as well.
Taking a look inside there is a lot of room for components. The case supports long graphics cards up to 350 mm long and CPU coolers up to 164 mm high. You have room for a 360 mm radiator at the top and bottom, and support for up to 4 hard drives. The case will have a tempered glass side panel as well. It is expected to release in June for only $80.
