Default IN WIN LUX (In Win H-Frame 2.0 build)



Hi guys,

This one is going to be a little different. I've decided to post a build log for this build however the build has been finished now for a few months. This was done around March this year when I was still in the middle of my move.

I had to get this build done along with another for an event. With the move and rushing to get it finished for the event I didn't have time for a build log.

For those interested to see I will get all the content out for this fairly fast

Hope you guys enjoy this one. I have to say the In Win H-Frame 2.0 is a stunning looking case.

SPECS:

Case In Win H-Frame 2.0
Motherboard ASUS Maximus VIII Formula
CPU Intel i7 6700K
Memory 4 x 4GB Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4
GPU 2x NVIDIA GTX 980 Reference Model

PSU In Win 1065W PSU

CPU Block Bitspower CPU Block Summit EF Ice Black
GPU Block 2x Bitspower VG-NGTX980 Acrylic Top with Stainless Panel (Clear)

Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

It's an awesome looking case

Price is a bit high as it is a limited edition signature series In Win case, it's around $1600 to $1700 for the case along that comes with the custom 1065W PSU.

Hi guys,

Here's another quick update of lighting features on the case













Both the case lights as well as the PSU light can be turned off individually.





Thanks for checking it out! I apologise for the quality in some of these photos, like I said before this was all done in the middle of my move

Cheers,

Alex

Do they offer a payment plan. Seriously though that's double
some of the Thermaltake Level10 offerings & they were considered cutting
edge at the time for $900+ iirc

Hahaha yea they release a yearly signature case and those are the ones with the more premium price tag. Last year it was the S-Frame. This year they have a few more. H-Frame 2.0, D-Frame 2.0, X-Frame i think it was and who can forget the robotic H-Tower

In Win really make some work of art cases but you do pay a premium.

Hi guys,

The theme for this build which I forgot to mention will be a bit art deco with some gold vinyl.

Here are the side panels





You can see in the background how this was during my move haha :P



This is the back side panel featuring the sponsor logos.



Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

Here's a quick look at some of the components going in.

Firstly, the ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Formula and the CPU in it is the 6700K.













GPUs going in are two reference GTX 980s which will of course have waterblocks installed however I've always loved the look of reference cards.









Two 240GB HyperX Savage SSDs



16GB of HyperX Predator DDR4



And lots of Bitspower watercooling gear! When this arrived at the time it was watercooling gear for two builds hehehe. And despite the look of that bottom box, everything was in one piece.



Thanks for checking it out guys and stay tuned for more.

Cheers,

Alex

hope it all comes together in the end but personally not a fan of gold bits on the glass window

starting to look more like a Chinese restaurant then a nice classy art deco look.

any thoughts on the coolant color?

Ah thank man! I'm really not big on art deco so these are just things I grabbed of Google that looked cool from just searching for art deco so not too sure if everything will be on point. I just wanted something to go with the gold look.

Will be using just clear coolant for this, will work well with the bitspower true brass fittings going in
