    Any thoughts or criticism? This is a very rough draft for a bench-type case to have easy access to hardware for testing and swapping. I got the idea from: http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/2231.html I am not a modeler so excuse the quality, I did this in 10 minutes.

    Why not just buy one already built? There are several manufacturers who already have something just like this.

    Looks simple and fine OP! take photo's when you build it....

    I had a buddy custom make a test bench out of wood. here is his build to give you a different idea:

    I think the hardest part will be figuring out where to place the holes for the standoffs and threading them.

    Thanks for that, maybe I'll steal a few concepts later on ;)

    Nice job, I'll have some questions for you later on!

    Place the MB where you want it then take a mechanical pencil and mark each hole then find a drill bit the same size or a little smaller of the the standoff thread, drill a little, and your good to go. if need be you can put a dab of glue, but I didn't need any.
