    I know there is some of you guys out there who got some techstations, so i figured why not make a clubhouse for those of us who has a tech station, made one or bought one:)

    and there can ONLY be techstations and something similar here, like a setup laying nekkid on the table, i dont want them ordinary cases.

    The purpose is to give the other members who dont know what it is, an idea about the concept and ask questions on how to make one, buy one og just get good ideas from other members.

    So post your testbench/techstation if you got one:toast:

    Sorry if my english sucks, i'm from Denmark:rockout:

    + if you've seen a new one or one that is awesome then you better post it:pimp:

    lol. Most of my stuff is water cooled, and the stuff that isn't has a fan pointed directly at them, so I don't care much about cable management. Can you tell? lol.

    Your Board screams in Pain!! its severly bent, look at the first Picture!:eek:
    your card seems to fall out of its slot,to the right, and to its power connector side, please be careful, als long as you dont have a mount for it... we dont want to see a broken X2:laugh:

    anyway, your cable management looks very neat! now i have to improve mine :laugh:

    its been like that since i got it, maybe thats the reason i got it so cheap, :twitch:
    and it still bends even if its not on the techstation.

    will it be dangerous?:confused:
    i will put on a old mobo tray between Christmas and New years eve i think, :rockout:

    yeah i think i did a okay job on that, as far as i could with limited options :roll:
    haha indeed you do:-D

    the secret is : lots of zipties:toast:

    $55 :D

    Thanks bro. The PSU's are completely untouched.


    Weird that is you got it like that. I don't think boards stay bent. Anyhow, good job on your tech station :) Pics are taken with a Olympus E500

    its used? then the preuser, has overbent it. my biostar will also be a little bent for life
    i had to apply the heatkiller, with a buddy sitting against the other side of the rig (15-20kg pressure i would bet). that gave the board a slight curve, but it never hurt the functionality.
    just be careful, and dont be to rough with it. regarding the zipties, i need to zip a few cables too... i believe i have to buy a few tomorrow;)



    thats not much... mine are for free, but dont look too professional:eek:

    Two of my three rigs are on tech stations. It's so much easier when you switch things out as often as I do. Here they are:

    yeah well, as long as it works for me i'm happy with it, it will soon be replaced with something else when i have the money :toast:
    haha if you lived in denmark i coul ship you af few pack of them, my dad in law is an electrician so he got like a gazillion :wtf:

    so true, i hate having my main rig in a case, cause if i wanna change the mobo i'd have to screw everything apart, and it does actually takes quite some time in all i think:banghead:
    thats the reason i love techs

    but hey, you got some nice ones, where did you buy them? is it the sunbeam techs?


    nice :rockout:
    how high did you get with it on?

    Yup, Sunbeam. Very well made for the price. I think I bought them from Performance for $70 each.
