    great for testing, but it would tick you off for having to clean all the dust off all the time, says the guy who managed to peal a layer of fuzz off his CPU sink.

    Coolercases are getting the DD ones in soon.

    They come in three models so you can have them without the lid or with lids. They do look great and have immense cooling possibilities although they are pricey:

    I think somebody's catching on to my designs! I've still got the lidded-no-lidded advantage.


    My personal benching station version1:

    Open benching station:

    Or slam on the lid and its a fully enclosed case:

    Full thread here.



    Or latest version, which looks a lot like the linked case:

    Open benching station:

    With components

    [​IMG]



    Again, with the option of putting the hood back on the trunk:

    Even our back panels are pretty similar, altho mine sports a 120mm fan! And hard drive access.

    This one's thread is here.


    A lot of folks like me change out components every 1-2 months--having a standard case just isn't practical. If check out hardcore hardware enthusiast sites, you'll find the vast majority of folks run systems straight out on a desktop, at least temporarily whilst stress testing and dialing overclocks. Open benches offer a nice advantage with hardpoints to secure components yet retain quick access.

    Animals and small humans could be a bit of a problem. Dust usually isn't because 1) Components aren't in there long enough to collect dust 2) As opposed to fully boxed case, its so easy to just lean over and blow everything out with a can of air.

    Navig That is just insane, do you ever turn up to LAN parties with those rigs :) would love to see the faces of people attending the party when you turn up with your monster rig.
