To see how top 1% live, check out this NZ $1,700 PC case

In-win D-Frame 2.0 Full Tower

Honestly I think it's pretty ugly.

In the US, the FCC doesn't regulate EMI/RFI emissions from cases (only PC components).

Besides conspicuous consumption, it's probably not a great idea to use this case

US$400, it's overpriced at that, should cost $600 here.

Jumpin’ Jehosaphat!

At least there's a "good" reason why it's so expensive

Absolute rubbish!
a few major problems


  • open air chassis; air flow.... what air flow
  • dust rejection.... nope
  • ESD/EMF no worries
  • the motherboard is rotated 90 so you plug everything in the top...
  • $1700!!! surely that is a typo $170 sounds more like it; its just a laser cut baseboard and some tubing

Those are the dumbest things I have ever seen. What kind of idiots waste their money on this rubbish? Even if I could afford them, I wouldn't want them.


Years ago a group of us had a computer lab for fun and profit. We nailed a pc to the wall as decoration, motherboard, PSU, peripherals all spread out along the wall. It worked fine and the ventilation was  excellent.

Ugly as.  




Maybe if it had a secondary use, like as a chair
