The Tech Station makes a perfect work station for computer hobbyists, overclockers, frequent upgraders, IT Professionals, PC Shops. Great for anyone needing frequent and fast access to internal PC components. It has solid non-conductive construction, tool-less storage for all PC components and lots of great features.
A good home for your hardware
- XL-ATX version fits mITX, mATX, ATX, eATX, and XL-ATX (HPTX boards also fit with just a few inches overhang in the back and removal of vid card fans.)
- 4-Way SLI Support with 10 expansion slots!
- 3x 120mm Fans! Two dedicated fans for video card cooling
- 2.5" SSD and 3.5" Hard Drive Support! Choose between 3.5" or 2.5" HDD during assembly. Swap anytime!
Based on XL-ATX form factor motherboard specifications. It has a surface area of 15.75x11” 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.
Hard Drive Storage/Cooling Rail System
Slide the HDD's in/out on smooth non-conductive acrylic rails. Two standard 3.5" hard drives or three 2.5" SSD's 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.
No loose Add-in cards, 4-Way SLI Compatible
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 (mITX through eATX and XL/HPTX) so all your add-in cards can be locked in place, including 4-WAY SLI!
Bottom shelf, load it up
The 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, even liquid cooling components.
Power the PC On/Off and monitor HDD activity
Plugging directly onto the motherboard, the included 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.
The Tech Station is made of non-electrically conductive, scratch-resistant, high grade polymers. 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.
Keep things cool with Three 120mm fans
A 120mm 12v fan positioned on the left side forcing air over heat sensitive components on the motherboard and the Hard Disk Drive(s) mounted under the top shelf. Two 120mm fans are dedicated to cooling all your double-wide video cards, including 4 Way SLI! Finger guards are included.
Lots 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 easily. The height between shelves is 7” offering enough room for all your optical drives, power supply, and even more hard drives if needed. Traditional alternatives would include leaving components installed in the computer case, which is an awkward and cramped environment for accessing hardware, an ill-fitting frame assembly made of conductive metal, or just having parts scattered around an open work area which is dangerous because components are exposed and vulnerable to impact, shorting and electrostatic discharge. And how is the motherboard switched on/off without the PC case? Our test bench and ATX Control Switches solve all these problems. Now you can easily configure your hardware exactly how you want it before installing it in your permanent case.
