With the random products I receive sometimes, like memory with a cooler or even better, for graphics card coolers, what I have found is that tinkering with components inside my cases has become a real pain in the rear end. This alone had sent me on the quest for the simplest design that would fit my needs and take up the least amount of room possible. I had thought of a Lian Li motherboard tray and just laying things out on a table, but that just doesn't work for me. I already had the Banchetto 101 and the Lian Li Pit Stop, but while they were both excellent products in their own right, they just weren't what I was looking for.
This quest dropped me off at Cooler Master's website, and I got to looking around. On the global site I located what I thought would do exactly as I needed. A small footprint, super simple layout, and ease of use are what led me to send a request for this design. I do realize that this chassis is older; it was released over a year ago to be more specific, but this chassis suits my needs exactly, and I am going to bring you my experience with it anyways. Not only to show you what such a simple design is capable of, but I also want to inspire a redo.
The Test Bench V1.0 from Cooler Master is what I will be going over today. While this product is no longer widely available, I think it is a product well worth mentioning, and with a few minor changes could easily take the market by storm with a version 1.1 or 2.0 depending on how they want to name it. Hopefully as I take you through he build and my thoughts on the use of the Test Bench V1.0, it will inspire you as it did me to help this chassis design have a comeback, as I feel it is one of the easiest test benches I have used to date! - Stick with me as I get through what the chassis offers, look at the images, and hopefully I can inspire others to feel the same way as I do about the Test Bench 1.0 from Cooler Master.
