Looks like a very nice piece of kit - certainly going to come in handy for OC3D to test new components - you can just keep the board up there, and just chop and change out the bits and bobs you need to test!

Awesome piece of kit there, and a nice review Tom

Yes, glad you got one for "A barrage of motherboards, heatsinks, graphics cards and ram"! Sounds like your going to hit us with a nice barrage of reviews Got a feeling you'll know soon about that PSU bracket after a proper TTL workout. Great review as always.

I have a few bug-bears with these things.

Concept - excellent, great things to have when you constantly work with changing out bits, components, testing. If they're exactly as you require them.

Prices - absolutely rediculous up to this point. Cheapest one I've broken ** was probably 75 or so, and felt like it. I didn't buy it, so hey.

Essentially, an enthusiast can put one of these together themselves, suprisingly cheaply. If you consider yourself a compitent wc'er and especially a case-modder, the task is simple.

** the breaking usually comes cos although the basic form is there - they don't facilitate 'something' - so you end up modding it in some fashion.

LL tray - $25, salvedged parts from old cases, "hack saw", misc cables from your favorite outlet. Coat it ? I've scratched the heck out of them usually with so much in/out of components. Monkey prints on the LL stuff can be annoying tho.

Meh, each to their own.

I was all for the cheap versions too Rasta, but tbh once you get something quality like this, especially for something that for me at least will get a huge amount of use they are worth twice the retail price. Kustom PC's has these in stock for 109 which is brilliant imho.

My only bugbare was the PSU bracket which i do belive will be getting changed asap, other than that the quality was top notch.
