In Win's D Frame enclosure bears a resemblance to a test bed but is more permanent and well protected, more a minimalist case to show off your components as the sides are actually made of glass.  There is some assembly required, thankfully [H]ard|OCP provides pictures throughout the process of installing components and finishing up the case.  Take a look at this unique case and its cooling performance in their full article.

"The first BlowHole system we ever built back in 1997 was hacked out of what was a very sturdy In Win steel case and I could still stand on top of it when it was done. Today's In Win Case, the "D Frame" is incredibly sturdy as well, but certainly brings with it a "less is more" theme considering it is lacking a traditional enclosure."

Here are some more Cases & Cooling reviews from around the web:

I don't think assembling a case is a big deal, especially when you probably assembled the computer hardware inside it.

WOAH! My life flashed before my eyes.... this brings back memories of the LANboy air case! haha. But anything would be better than that.

Also, I think I remember seeing ASUS using one of these a few weeks back to show off new systems.
