[ Edit |
A good home for your hardware: 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. Set the rails for 3.5" drives or re-set them for SSD's anytime. An optional Second set of Drive Rails are also available.
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 drives, extra hard disks, even liquid cooling components.
Power 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.
Non-conductive materials: The 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.
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, but the fan can accommodate an additional one on both sides.
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.
The HSPC Tech Station (patent pending) is a fast-access computer case - a hardware workbench bringing PC components within easy reach yet keeping them safe and secure.
The Tech Station makes a perfect workstation for computer hobbyists, overclockers, frequent upgraders, IT Professionals, PC Shops. - For anyone needing frequent and fast access to internal PC components.
With tool-less storage for all PC components it has solid non-conductive construction and lots of great features...
