Case Build & Finished Product

Now that our build is complete, we will do a rotation around the bench to show each angle, and how accessible or usable the system is while on the BC1. First up at the end, with the controls in place, we find that everything is easily accessible, and cabling can be well managed out of sight. One thing to note is that the BC1 does not have any sort of front panel connectivity or controls. Should your motherboard not haver integrated power/reset button, you will need to buy switches separately or go old school and short the pins when you need to power the rig.

Here we see the lower edge and the fact that we could install a fan on the lower-end to help with cooling should the bench need it. When reviewing components, it is easy to see why a setup like this would be favorable as I could individually plug and validate each connection on the board far more comfortable than being inside of a chassis. Here again, we see that even in such a compact bench, we were able to tuck the cabling between the main plate and PSU eliminating a rat's nest of cables and making for a clean easy to work on bench.

With everything built, the next test was to get the BC1 rig fired up and see how everything works. Of course, as always, we have a bit of RGB, and if your rig has RGB, well, the BC1 has no smoked glass so that you will see all of it, of course. Overall, if I had my LN2 pot on this, I think this would work just as well as my DimasTech, although admittedly much smaller, the BC1 can also be tossed in my backpack if I need to hit the road.

Now all that's left is to wrap this one up and take a look at what we think of the new BC1 openbenchtable design.
