Surely the best measure for this sort of review is, will BT be using this in the future?

Just checking that people actually use the click-for-big images... Link fixed.

With test benches the devil is in the detail. It's piss easy to just put something together yourself and save cash, but Dimastech has been making these for ages and they've thought of a lot of stuff that the DIY-version is going to lack..

That said, this Easy is just way too large if you aren't going to install a water cooling loop to the bottom part. For air cooled systems it could easily be one third the size and weight.

Looks pretty good for a test bench not sure about how sturdy everything would be over time with just thumb screws holding it down,

also 3rd image 2nd page 404 error.

Page 2, 4th paragraph:

"...including a positional FlexFan mount, can be purchased separation, as can extras such as a neoprene under-..."


I have been toying with getting one of these, having to put kit inside my old NSK4000 then pull it out again multiple times is getting to be a pain in the a***e. I am think of attacking it with the dremel and taking the top and sides off it.

100 is still a lot though, apart from making one yourself, what cheaper options are there that are any good? What about ones for those that wouldn't use the watercooling functionality?

There is competition here, the Lian Li PC-T60B (65) and the Cooler Master Test Bench (55) are both cheaper.

if they supplied a plastic shell that could be placed over it (aka record player) it would be lovely.

Is this ok for tri SLI on a Gigabyte X58 UD7? I'm looking for a test bench, and this seems to fit what I want.

Cheers,

Simon.

Can someone who has own/used this test bench please verify my above question.

Cheers,
