The illusive PC Test Bench, something that if you are reviewing or testing PC hardware is a must have. Test benches make it extremely easy to swap out hardware compared to a traditional PC case. This not only makes things easier, but saves you quite a lot of time and frustration as well. Surprisingly there are not that many companies that offer PC test benches, but Lian Li is one of them. They first released the PC-T60, which supported ATX motherboards, but lacked room for AiO watercooling. The Lian Li PC-T80 is now here and supports motherboards up to XL-ATX and has room for radiators up to 360mm. We will be using this test bench for our new graphics card test rig, will it fit the bill? Read on as we find out!
If you are testing motherboards, video cards or power supplies it is extremely annoying to keep on installing and removing them in cases. That is why test benches and hardware workbenches were created. Today we are taking a look at one such product from HighSpeed PC. It is their Top Deck Tech Station. This computer workbench supports mITX, mATX, ATX, eATX, and XL-ATX motherboards, has 4-Way SLI support with 10 expansion slots, and even has support for 2.5-inch hard drives! Of course it easily allows you to change out components and gives you full access to your motherboard and video cards. Read on to see if this is the perfect test bench for us!
