home for your hardware: Based on ATX form factor motherboard specifications.
It has a surface area of 14x9.5” on each bench which keeps the footprint small yet
will support hardware for a complete computer system! The motherboard is
perfectly secure on the upper shelf with a high friction rubberized standoff system
that supports the motherboard
1/4" off the bench surface (accommodates CPU cooler back plates and
increases air circulation). Nylon guide posts position the motherboard perfectly on
the Tech Station. Add-in cards are
securely locked in place with thumbscrews so the motherboard is safe yet
available for hands-on work and is easily removed.
Storage/Cooling Rail System:
Slide the HDD's in/out on
smooth non-conductive acrylic rails. Two
3.5" hard drives can be easily inserted, protected and cooled by
rails suspended under the top shelf. One end of the HDD Rails open to
catch air from the 120mm cooling fan, a nylon stopper keeps the drive
from making contact with the fan. SSD
Drive Rails are also available.
loose Add-in cards! The Add-In Card
support brace solves the problem of loose motherboard add-in
cards, loose cards can damage circuitry. The
brace offers universal support for all add-in cards - blocking no
cables or connections, and has some lateral flexibility to make
adding/removing cards easy. Nylon thumb screws twist into the top
of the brace and are positioned at ATX form factor spec locations so
seven add-in cards can be locked in place. The support
brace can also be removed, flipped over and turned to support BTX form
Bottom shelf, load
lower shelf is for
stacking the drives and power supply. Includes a neoprene mat to
make the entire shelf a non-slip and non-conductive work surface. There
is plenty of real estate here to hold optical, extra hard disks and
the PC On/Off and monitor HDD activity: Plugging directly onto the motherboard, The
ATX Control Kit takes the place of the computer case power and
reset switches, power and hard disk drive activity lights, and system
warning speaker so that PC hardware can operate totally independent of a
standard computer case.
Tech Station is made of non-electrically conductive, scratch-resistant,
high grade polymers. (The bench can hold over 150 lbs!)
Metal screws and brackets are not exposed in
sensitive areas, the motherboard rests on protective rubber standoffs,
the lower shelf has a non-slip neoprene work mat, and the test bench sits on
non-slip thermoplastic rubber feet. No
worries of frying your hardware like with a metal bench.
12v fan positioned on the left side forcing air over heat sensitive
components on the motherboard and the Hard Disk Drive(s)
under the top shelf. A finger guard is included but the fan can accommodate
one on both sides.
of room to work: With
the motherboard on the top shelf there are no height restrictions for
CPU heatsinks and all the motherboard components can be changed very
height between shelves is 7” offering enough room for all your optical
drives, power supply, and even more hard drives if needed.
