Streacom Displays The BC1 Portable Open Test Bench

/ 4 years ago


Test benches are a vital aspect of any reviewer, hardware tester or professional overclocker’s arsenal as it allows them to quickly change components in an open environment. Unfortunately, test benches can be heavy or revolve around a convoluted mounting system which makes the setup process take a considerable amount of time. Thankfully, Streacom has worked alongside HWBOT and OverClocking-TV to create a travel test bench. This community-developed product measures 8mm thick and weighs a mere 1.82KG. Timothée Pineau, head of Project Development at HWBOT and VP of OverClocking-TV said about the BC1 test bench:

“The Open Benchtable story starts with a group of community members recognising the need for a wholly more portable benchtable solution,” 

The design of the Open Benchtable has continued to evolve and improve with more OC community members contributing to help us finally arrive at the incredible design we have today.”

Key Features

Weighs 1.82kg and is 8mm thin. Includes an integrated carry handle.

Full Component Integration
Main body integrates the legs, mounting brackets, standoffs and thumbscrews – everything you need to quickly set up an open rig.

Toolless Design
The entire product uses thumbscrews meaning you won’t even need to bring your screwdriver with you. Motherboard standoffs include traditional and convenient pushpin options.

True Versatility
Supports all form factor motherboards, plus up to four VGA cards. Integrated mounting brackets support system fans and radiators in a variety of configurations.

This innovative test bench is designed for hobbyists who travel a lot of professionals who want their own testing setup for LAN parties and other events. The ability to easily carry around your own test bench is intriguing and I hope the build quality is high enough to contend with LN2 scenarios. In terms of pricing, the open benchtable community edition will cost $149 through Streacom retailers. This is certainly a product I’d like to try out and see how it fares against the current slew of Lian-Li test benches.
