found this while browsing ebay for a test bench. i do IT consulting and needed to upgrade my bench that I use for diagnosing/cloning/testing 10G NICs, GPUs and nVME SSDs.

it comes completely disassembled, just a bunch of aluminum bars, acrylic fan/rad holder, some fasteners and screws. takes about 30 minutes to assemble because the instructions have confusing typos in them. for exmaple, one place said use screw Q5 when it should have said Q4

the end result is actually awesome. holds a full size ATX AM4 board, decent PSU and a 360m CLC cooler without a problem. no flex and just feels really sturdy. and you don't have to follow the instructions, you can assemble however you want it. you can build it without the two long bars and make it into an mITX bench. smaller mounting equipment included for a 120mm CLC if the 240mm mount it too much

images attached. it goes for about $65 on fleabay and $100 on amazon.
