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-GT3 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 and cuttings for cable-through on the upper acrylic board, the dual-layer Alpha-GT3 bench case can accommodate a Micro ATX/ATX motherboard and a 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 in the compartment of the lower stand. For uncompromising convenience, a easy-access panel on the side is also included for easy connection to the peripherals.

  • newegg Easy to Install With the acrylic motherboard tray mounted on four stands, the dual-layer, open-style bench case delivers unlimited space for components and unmatched convenience for system assembly. No more hassles of groping in a narrow space!
  • newegg Excellent Cooling With heat circulation below the 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 in the lower compartment below the acrylic board, lowering the center of gravity for better stability and proving better protection.

by scorlock: Solid build, for an open design 1/27/2019 7:52:19 PM

Pros: Extra parts included
Instructions included
Adjustable height on the expansion card support plane
Once complete, very solid and not wobbly, although I added extra supports (included) to the risers (structural posts)

Cons: Maybe should include a note saying it cannot be built in "opposite" direction; I tried but the holes and board slots only align one-way

Overall Review: Great fun for a DIY open design

Useful, not pretty....but so am I 12/29/2018 3:27:40 PM

Pros: Does what I want it to without being flashy....at all lol
Works fine for prebuilds and heavy testing of failed systems but I do keep it in the basement....

Cons: Construction is function over form taken to extremes.

Overall Review: It works
It's ugly,

Would not recommend 11/21/2018 2:08:13 AM

Pros: Fairly easy to set up.
Fun to build, with the exclusion of peeling off the packaging.
A decent size and layout for testing builds

Cons: Holds static electricity extremely well, which not only collects dust at an alarming rate, but is a risk to your hardware. I do not feel comfortable using this as a temp setup rig for my builds at all because of this. Since its acrylic there's really not a good way to ground it.
Also, the drive trays, fan mount and front panel board are cheap and flimsy. If you flex the case the hard drives can fall out of the rack since they just screw to a flat piece that's sitting in a cutout track on tabs.
In the end, this is overpriced for what you're getting, a cheap case like a cube case would be much better for a similar price.

Overall Review: I would like to see a simple metal rig of this type that can be properly grounded. The two level design was really unnecessary for temporary setups, a single deck would be more convenient. I have continued to do tests on the motherboard box, its easier all around.

Great for quickly testing boards 7/28/2018 11:50:58 AM

Pros: I bought this so I could quickly hook up motherboards (and whatever other hardware) to test them out.
Assembly wasn't too bad, but the instructions aren't perfect.
The case itself is lightweight, but seems sturdy with a power supply and motherboard attached.

Cons: No real cable management, but it's only a temporary case so no big deal

Overall Review: Mine came with a USB 2 and a USB 3 header, didn't realize this when I bought it.

worked as advertized 7/11/2018 10:05:29 PM

Pros: easy to put together, looks good, room for testing

Cons: instructions are a bit confusing, not useful in places

Overall Review: I have experience building, so the poor instructions didn't bother me. If you are looking for an open air test bed, this works great

Just Flip IT, FLIP IT GOOD !!! 1/13/2018 2:44:43 PM

Pros: - With 5 minutes of drilling, you can flip this design placing the power supply, drives, and other components on top,
and the Motherboard on bottom.
- Flipped, the Motherboard is better protected, and still has full free air flow for GPUs and CPU cooler.
- Easy to Customize : I placed a BitFenix 200mm LED fan on the left side, feeding massive air flow to the full system.

Cons: None.
NOTE: The Acrylic has a 'SHINY' side and a flat matte side.
If you want it to look SHINY, careful with scratches and it will show ANY dust that electrostatic sticks to the frame.
I Prefer to follow the directions and used the Flat matte side UP, looking cool and cleaner, not showing dust or finger prints.
DO remember to wear the white cotton gloves that come with it when assembling - to prevent oil smudges on the shiny side.
ALSO: Use some zip-ties to bunch up your power and data cables firmly to the frame for a professional, neat & tight look.

Overall Review: I purchased two Alpha-GT3s to Double Stack a triple layer system. Using additional GPU extension slots,
this builds up a very COOL, very professional open air tower that looks sharp for gaming or for digital currency mining.
A little work with a power drill and you can build a flipped system or a 3, 4, or more layered open air tower system.
Note that the taller you build it - you must use longer cables. I found the mid-mount power supply in a 3 level system is ideal.
ONE flipped kit frame allows a Top Mount power supply and room for 3-4 GPUs on top, & 1-2 GPUs on the motherboard below.
Adding a right side mounted water cooler near the CPU along with a left side mounted 140mm or 200 mm LED fans keep it very cool and looking cool for your multicore / multi GPU gaming / crypto / research system.
Create a unique, hand built custom look - all on a budget at less than half the cost of other open air frame systems.

GARBAGE 6/14/2017 8:48:48 PM

Pros: None

Cons: This case is completely worthless. It was an absolute waste of money. Instructions are written in very poor English. During assembly, I accidentally dropped the top rail to support the PCIe cards a few inches onto my desk and it broke. Contacted manufacturer's "customer support" and got no response. I tried installing hard disks into this piece of junk and nothing lines up right.

Spend your money on something better. Mine is going in the trash ASAP.

Nice test bench 4/24/2017 9:22:24 AM

Pros: Inexpensive. I bought this for a cheapy mining rig setup. saved me the hassle of building something, or paying exorbitant prices for a pre-built one. I love the well labeled (albeit mislabeled) plastic box of screws and hardware included. I wish every company would do that. Most just give you a plastic bag with everything mixed in and you have to sort it out. Just make sure you verify all the screws against the instructions to make sure everything is in its proper place.

Cons: The instructions are atrocious. The YouTube video they direct you to of the Newegg guy putting it together is worse. The YouTube skipped over half of the build. So be prepared to just figure it out for yourself from website pictures. Dry fit everything and expect to be taking it all apart at some point because its backwards. Luckily the parts are keyed a certain way, so that's makes it a bit easier. I installed everything shiny side up, but the instructions are based on shiny side down??? Whatever. I'm dissembling now and reversing it. Either way it's not a big deal, but I wish they would have labeled it clearly what side is shiny and which is matte, so I can figure it out easier. The protective paper was almost impossible to remove. Make sure you don't trim your nails right before the build. You're going to need nails to scrape off the corner of the paper to get it started.

Overall Review: Update: Now that I've been working with it, I have to take a couple eggs off. It's OK if you want to struggle getting it built with mismatched parts, but for half the price you can buy a "regular" case on Shell Shocker. If you're a professional PC reviewer, just fork over the cash and get one of those professional test benches. It'll be triple the price, but you'll be much happier.
