Slick designs are only available in limited quantities; check them out if you're willing to brave the dust

Open-air cases do have some distinct disadvantages -- namely component safety and dust buildup.  But Taiwanese component maker In Win Development Inc. (TPE:6117) is convinced many gamers would gladly tackle those minor annoyances to get a gorgeous open-air tool-less case.

At the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show InWin showed us a trio of tool-less cases dubbed the H-Frame, H-Frame (mini-)ITX, and D-Frame.  The D-Frame and H-Frame cases are available in very limited quantities for $399.00 USD from InWin's e-store (InWin did not specify release details of the ITX case).

The D-Frame features a colorful painted aluminum case, that the user can assemble themselves without tools.  The hardy case features precision welds and transparent plastic paneling to show off components and protect them.

The case has an adjustable power-supply bay capable of accommodating supplies up to 220 mm long.  The case can house four 120 mm adjustable speed fans.  Also included are slots for three 3.5” HDDs, two 2.5” SSDs, one optical drive, the latest Super Speed USB 3.0 ports, and 8 PCI expansion slots (with clearance for up to 330 mm graphics cards.

The case is compatible with both ATX and microATX motherboard form factors.

Only 500 units of the case will be produced.  The D-Frame will be available this month.  The case is available in red and orange varieties.

The H-Frame is a slightly bigger case design, also made for ATX and microATX motherboards.  It accommodates a motherboard with USB 2.0 & 3.0 front connectors, multi-GPU graphics.  There are three EZ-Swap 3.5" HDD bays, one EZ-Swap 2.5" SSD bay, an optical drive bay, and a full-size ATX power supply slot.

Only a scant 100 units of the case will be produced.  The case will be available in silver and blue varieties.  Availability will be in August 2013.

Last, but not least InWin teased at a petite ITX case that accommodates a single small graphics card, a mini-ITX motherboard, and a small 120-watt power supply.  The body is brushed aluminum, similar to the larger H-Frame.

The case bears metallic green accents.  As mentioned, availability and pricing of this unit were not discussed, but it will likely be priced slightly lower and also be offered in limited quantities sometime later this year.
