About this mod / project: The first time when I saw the In Win D-Frame I thought … Liquidcooling! Tubing! More than a year later I got invited for the LDLC Modding Trophy to work with In Win and Bequiet, I felt so honored! Also very excited because I could finally see what could be done with the D-Frame Mini. My goal was to actually use the frame as a reservoir for the pc inside. With this mod I tried to use as many as possible easy tools like a jigsaw, handsaw, file, sandpaper, drill and described it in the logs so anyone could actually do this at home. The most challenging part of this mod for me was figuring out which parts to keep and to cut from the original frame to keep it solid but functional and … filling it. Next to that I also customised the D-Frame, power supply and SSD with UV blue acrylic, custom length and sleeved power supply cables and braided main power cable. Also polished all acrylic panels and the GPU block to see the liquid flowing through the GPU which I gave another position by using a PCI-e extender.
