That's a really nice one! I was thinking of getting it, but settled on a Core P5 instead. The Raijintek wouldn't have fit well on my desk due to the extra width from the "rear" mounted PSU.That Antec Skeleton I agree. I like open frame that has temper glass. here's one that I really like
It's a slang term for a thing that looks boring but is actually badass.what on earth is a sleeper?
Thus far, mine handles the same 4.8ghz overclock on a 7700K as it did in my old closed case. I can't say that means much though; I'm sure there are a lot of factors in play when it comes to VRM cooling in open air like that. My VRM heatsinks definitely get too hot to touch. I'm considering EK's monoblock for my mobo, at this point.no experience here, but ive always wanted one of them open air bench cases, something like the...praxxis wetbench...just cant justify the prices..
that said my friend just bought one of the core p5 or p7 cases, cant remember which, to build his ryzen setup in.... watercooled, but was having issues with vrm cooling cause no proper airflow...he ended up jerry-rigging a fan over the cpu area at the top of the case.....
ya he mentioned it was extremely hot to the touch when he kept crashing/rebooting, my first recommendation to him was "are you sure, theres not some sort of fancy plastic wrap on the heatsinks?" to which he verified there infact wasn't, so he just rigged a fan up to the top, seemed to resolve his issue.Thus far, mine handles the same 4.8ghz overclock on a 7700K as it did in my old closed case.

I went ITX and open frame. Never going back.Once you goes ITX, you don't go back.
I sold it last year. Regretted it but I bought a Mac Pro for business so I didn’t look back long. I just built a new PC this week and got a good deal on the D-Frame. I like it a lot and will probably buy the other versions.So you own both S Frame and D frame, or did you sell your S frame?
I have a "hybrid" s frame. I got the Jonsbo
The D-Frame Mini doesn't come with that PSU, only the D-Frame 2.0.So you own that fancy SI-1065W tempered glass PSU then? How's it? I heard people complaining that PSU (I vaguely recall it's at In Win forum), and for the $ people paid, I am surprised there is problem. Usually the more $ you pay, the better it should be.
But that PSU reminds me of cars like Ferrari or Lambo, the more $ you pay, the more trouble you get.
Does anyone knows who start the idea of Open Frame? Is it AeroCool? As there is no website that talks about it
No, I’ve tried them all. That’s too small limits your GPU, adds heat, limits hard drives/upgradibility IMO. Mid towers are probably the best. I have an open air thermaltake P3 now. Dust isn’t really that big a problem, but I’m not against the idea of going back to a more traditional case next time. I think my favorite case was a Thermaltake Cosmos 1010. My second favorite was probably a Deep Cool Captain Genome II. I go to LAN parties regularly. The Cosmos 1010 has those nice big handles. (Yes it’s stupid heavy though)Once you goes ITX, you don't go back.
