Tired of the routine design and architecture of the conventional tower-style PC case?

With dozens of mounting posts, screw holes, air vent for PSU and cuttings for cable-through on an acrylic board, the Bench case can accommodate Micro ATX / ATX motherboard and longer graphics card while the open style delivers excellent performance on cooling, compatibility and maintenance, ideal for testing and overclocking. The HDD and ODD can be easily mounted on the stand. For uncompromising convenience, a side easy-access panel is also included for easy connection to the peripherals.

  • newegg Easy to Install With a piece of acrylic board mounted on four stands, the open style Bench case delivers unlimited space for components and unmatched convenience for system assemble - no more hassle of groping in a narrow space.
  • newegg Excellent Cooling With heat circulation below motherboard and high-efficiency heat convection, the bench case delivers superior cooling performance for the whole system.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent build

Pros: Installing this was okay. It's definitely easy to get your devices in. The instructions at least do mark well what the screws are. The screws come in a very nice plastic labeled case.

They put a sticker over the base pieces to keep them from being scratched. Be sure you take them off. I thought they were showing how they were recycled board or something and realized they were stickers after screwing on pieces (doofus). I afterwards realized they were stickers and had to unscrew from my HDDs to get them off.

It's light! The positioning of the USB is easy, and having a USB 3.0 keeps it modern enough.

Cons: Instructions are adequate. They will somewhat help you but you'll be doing a little trial and error yourself.

You'll pretty much require two hard drives to get this secure. I was intending to use only one SSD with a bracket kit but the base portions require a HDD or at least something for each of the base stands to secure them.

They, even after install, are a tad flimsy. I was building this to put into a credenza and it's alright but I'd have liked a better more secure method for piecing the base portions together.

I don't know what to do with my PSU! I don't have a large PSU and the picture shows they set it next to the things but I assumed it would screw down. It definitely just sets there. I haven't found a screw configuration that can mount it at the right angle and make it work. So it kind of slides around.

Other Thoughts: It's one of only a few open chassis. It's mostly fine, really I'm only frustrated with the power supply configuration method. Other than that it's what I wanted.

4 out of 5 eggsBench Case

Pros: Easy open space for installation
Average assembly
Cost efficient
Neat and ordered parts box

Cons: Useless instruction sheet
Cheap unusable gloves
Odd PSU setup

Other Thoughts: I picked up 2 of these benches and I have to admit they are very useful. I do suggest going online to youtube for a proper installation guide though since the manual is complete garbage. The support rails for the PCI slots are not the best either but they are sufficient. I have no idea why the PSU connects the way it does but I don't bold mine down anyway, it just sits there to make it easy to move. Also don't be confused by the stand off layout you will not fill all the holes for your motherboard as there is not a spot for some standoffs. Even so it still has plenty of support for plugging in your pins and hardware.
All in all for the price its better than a motherboard box for testing things so it gets a thumbs up from me.

5 out of 5 eggsBest. Case. Ever. (Even though it's technically a workbench)

Pros: Excellent budget case for the pseudo-minimalist - someone who wants ease of access (or to show off the guts of their PC) without much worry of a short or related electric issues. Also functions effectively as a workbench.

Cons: None, as a case. As a workbench, replacing the screws with something for easy removal while still securing the board in place may help a lot.

Other Thoughts: To case, or not to case, that is the question. Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of an expensive box, or to take Arms against a sea of dust.

So it is.

4 out of 5 eggsNEAT PEICE

Pros: This is a decent test bed not too complicated or hard to assemble wish it had more options but it will work great for setting up computers, Reviewing components and overclocking I bought a nice modular PSU to use with it i like the open air lets you see what temps u will have before putting it in a 10 fan case.

Really like it i recommend it to any beginner builder for the avid overclock-er.

Cons: Wish is had some more options.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Bench Case

Pros: Light and sturdy, PCI card supports, looks

Cons: Some of the diagrams on the instructions are less than clear, thankfully Newegg's video cleared up a little confusion concerning the placement of some pieces.

Other Thoughts: Lengthiest part of the assembly was removing the film from all the acrylic pieces. Getting your fingernail underneath the film was a bit of a challenge. The drive mounts are very simple and remind me somewhat of laser cut wood cases that can be bought. I wonder if anyone does one of these as a laser cut wood kit?

2 out of 5 eggsDIYPC Alpha-DB6 Bench Case

Pros: Price

Cons: Matte Finish is the top side would have like to have seen the gloss side up. USB3 for front panel gets in the way of the stand support. No pre-drilled holes for mini-itx Boards Power Button cables stick out the front. DIYPC Support&Sales Does not reply to emails.

Other Thoughts: I have emailed DIYPC Support 3 times and have not received 1 reply from them. Pictures and Review Video Show USB2 for front panel connectors even DIYPC site shows USB2 in there pictures.

5 out of 5 eggsDIYPC black acrylic tax bench case

Pros: I first thought about getting this case because it looked unique and i was doing a budge build and the price seemed right. All of the parts fit like a glove i was impressed that they used nice thick sheets of acrylic. My micro atx biostar board fit nicely onto it with tons of room to spare. It is worth the money and also the on/reset buttons are nice with led lights. I was blown away on how much open workspace you have in the case with mounting accessories because they are a good amount of holes so like for and example the usb ports which comes with the case can be mounting in different locations so it makes it easer to manage the wiring which is a nice touch.

Cons: The instruction manual is kind of small and at times hard to read so i also used the easy egg video to help me assemble it. Also when you first open it, every single peace of acrylic peace is covered in this protective sheet which is hard to remove so i used some cool water in one of the corners to soften the paper layer up which helped a little. This is not really a con but since i am using a heavy cpu cooler and the psu is heavy, do not try to move it after because it will bend of all that weight so build it where you plan put it. I did not like the design for the psu because you have to mount it vertically which can be hard if you mount the motherboard first and my psu pushes the air to the bottom now. but i have to admit it does look unique and cool then the psu is sitting verical position.

Other Thoughts: I actually used 2.5 inch drives in this build so i had to go to the accessories section and get some mounts that convert the 2.5 inch drive to 3.5 inch drives which made it fit. Some of the mounts allow you to mount 2 x 2.5 inch drives per section and since the case lets you fit 2 x 3.5 inch slots you can fit up to 4 drives but will be a tight squeeze with the wiring. Another quick tip is to install the psu first because the screws are on the bottom so it is hard to install it later.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: This case is great. Very well made, all the pieces were cut perfectly and fit together very well.
