Tired of the routine design and architecture of the conventional tower-style PC case? Feel bored with the dull elements of meshes, transparent side panels and fancy LED lights of the so-called high end chassis? Toss the limitation and bridle into recycle bin and indulge yourself in the nakedness and pristine form of the PC components with the open type DIYPC Alpha-DB6 acrylic bench case, which endows your build a unique appearance and makes your system stand out from crowds.

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.
  • newegg Stand Mounted ODD and HDD The HDD and ODD can be installed on the stand - below the acrylic board, lowering the center of gravity for better stability and proving better protection.
  • newegg Easy Access Panel A side panel with one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port, and one headset + one mic ports allows easy access to a variety of peripherals.

4 out of 5 eggsFor Die Hard D.I.Y.R'S

Pros: other people can edit their reviews for updates, i cannot...!..?..!!.. it works to serve a purpose. i got updated usb 3 port...!!!!

Cons: scratch guard paper cut with panels, very difficult to remove, has a shiny side , so of corse the shiny side gets dust and fingerprints at an insane rate, quantity, and speed

Other Thoughts: should make it easier to remove paper (brown tape), wish there was a non shiny version, there was a white version but it was very limited edition , maybe.?.

3 out of 5 eggsAnnoyed is Understatement

Pros: maybe functional , cheap

Cons: brown paper covering the shiny side of the acrylic (fancy plastic)...
i bought this, cause it was cheap , i dont care if it has scratches... im having to spend far too long (time) on remove-ing the brown fire hazard paper from the all the parts

Other Thoughts: maybe show us that there is "number 2 informal expletive deleted" (sounds like that is a wrap ) brown paper on the surface of the parts maybe

2 out of 5 eggsDecent bench case

Pros: Seems to be fairly well designed.
Provides gloves so you don't leave fingerprints everywhere.

Cons: Damaged in shipping, and DIYPC refused to send me replacements for the power toggles and usb ports. I've already got this setup with my components so I'm not sending in an entire bench case for replacement when the cables are the only things that are damaged.

Other Thoughts: Can seem a bit flimsy, especially if you don't make use of both drive bays. I'm impressed with how the drive bays lock in place.

The gloves were a nice touch, but the instructions left a lot to be desired. Took several hours to peel off the protective paper and assemble everything, so be ready to tuck in and work.

The PCI bars and the PSU mounts feel shaky, but it works for a bench case.

4 out of 5 eggsNice work bench

Pros: Works well for swapping out parts and quick testing.

Cons: It looks a bit cheap but then again I did not spend to much on it so I got what I payed for.

Other Thoughts: Might get a second for testing AMD parts out as the main one I have setup is for testing on an older Intel.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Great test bench or place to pre build a system before moving into a permanent case. Couple minor issues but way more convenient than using a case.

Cons: The way the PSU bolts on can be a hassle. The Expansion card holders aren't that great.

Other Thoughts: I ended up getting a power cord with a 90 degree end so it fits better. Tough to get to the PSU power switch. Some motherboards I have to remove the board before I can remove the aux power cable because it's a tight fit between the CPU cooler and PSU.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but a bit floppy

Pros: Cheap
Lots of options
Smaller profile
Light
Portable
Multiple motherboard sizes supported

Cons: For me it's a bit on the floppy side of things but it's holding up well.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people say they have trouble with the directions for me I was able to look at the picture and assemble it without much trouble. Just need a bit of (un)common sense and a bit of time to put it together.

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.
