The Mini S Frame Build Log

Recommended Posts

For those of you who don't know I am a huge In Win fan, I love the design and quality hence why for my main setup i have a In Win S frame absolutely decked out in a ROG theme.

 

I have some spare parts and thought wouldn't it be cool if there was a Mini ITX S Frame and that's my inspiration for this build stemming from the love of the case!

 

After a lot of calculations I worked out my percentage size reduction from the main case being 35%. I wanted to get it slightly smaller but I was limited vertically because of the GPU.

 

The next step was to make my stencil, this part was relatively simple all I had to do was print off the Flat S Frame at the reduced scale. After a few attempts I got the measurements spot on with my scale. I then put all the pieces onto cardboard and after a bit of taping and cutting my stencil was made!

I decided to use perspex for this build and proceeded to trace using my stencil and then cut using a jigsaw.

Next step will be to tidy up the jigsaw work and check all measurements and angles and then the hardest part being the bending!

Yesterday I made the radiator mount out of perspex with a aluminium backing for support. I also started the vinyl work.

This project has been on pause for a little bit while I finished a themed build. But now I'm very happy to announce that the Mini S Frame is finished! I'm very happy with how it has turned out It features a Asus Z170I Pro Gaming ITX Motherboard. My Inspiration for this scratch build comes from my love for the In WIn S Frame and i tried to match my personal rig as closely as possible!

 

To see how I made the frame check out my build summary video: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=4Z_e8Y7_YHc
