Production is truly "limited" -- only 50 will be built

I won't bore you with a bunch of fluff, but I just wanted to take the time to point out this case from InWin's booth at CES. The radical-looking XFrame Limited Edition "open frame" PC Chassis is constructed almost entirely of aluminum and measures 13" x 20" x 16".
 
Features include:
  • Six 3.5" drive bays
  • Two 5.25" drive bays
  • Support E-ATX motherboards
  • Full-length, 12" graphics cards are fully support
  • Two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports are included on the front panel along with audio connections
 
Production will reportedly be limited to just 50 units and there is no word on if the cases will make it to the U.S., which is a shame. Seeing it in person, it just looks like a work of art.

now it'll be even EASIER to destroy my $500 GPU when i accidentally knock over my mountain-dew during a 1am deathmatch.

Yeah, my wife has destroyed 10+ keyboards and 1 sub woofer from spilling liquids on them, now in addition, she can blow out the motherboard, cpu, video card and maybe even the psu, sounds great. The only good thing would be that I would have to upgrade to new components more often!

I'm trying to imagine what this would look like when the metric ton of cat hair floating around my office makes its way onto this contraption lol.

More like useless and a waste of money.

I think it's for testing components and hardware setups easily, it's not for your average user's desktop.

Think PC repair shop.

Antec released something like this several years ago. It cost more than the usual mid-tower but it wasn't outrageously priced either. It seemed to fit the repair shop function you're talking about much better.

This In-Win case seems squarely aimed at the bling PC crowd based on its styling, materials, and the fact that there are only 50 of them. It is made for showing off.


If you want it so bad

Commission a metal worker to make one nearly like it but call it the H frame.
