D-Frame 2.0 by Malik Customs

It is hard to go unnoticed when you build a PC in one of In Win`s D-Frame 2.0 open frame cases. Malik Custom pulled off a clean and minimalistic look while he managed to exploit the stock gold paint job of the D-Frame, which is not an easy task. For this magnificent build, Malik Customs was inspired by motorization and industrial design, while the specific character of the In Win D-Frame 2.0 has just added a pinch of elegance to it.

To bend or not to bend? The story of 2F adapter fittings

Even though soft tubing is considered to be the beginner’s option, we cannot claim it’s easier to use than hard tubing. Some bends are just impossible to pull off with soft tubing. We have talked about various types of tubing in our “Fittings and tubing guide” where we mentioned the kinking effect on soft tubing. Soft tubing kind of “has a mind of its own”.

What is CLC and how to use it?

Let us introduce you to the CLC! It stands for “Custom Loop Configurator” and by knowing that, you get the general idea what it’s good for. The CLC is a one of a kind, there is no other similar webpage/software available that will help you to build your basic custom liquid cooling system.

Radiators Part 2 – Performance

The fundamental rule of radiator performance testing is to see how well the radiator cools the coolant. For us, computer geeks, the most widespread way of describing radiator performance is by using W/10°C, or in other words, Watts per 10 Delta T (sometimes K is used instead of ΔT). To make it easier to understand, we are going to look at some performance charts.
