DIY Testbench

Recommended Posts

But if it takes 2 hours, is it really free?

 

There really should be some decent ones for a good price out there though.  He's right, it is ridiculous.

By LTT forum logic you even get paid for it, because planning and building PCs is fun and exciting.

No, it's not. But unless you're valuing your time at $50/hour or more it's still efficient.


Sign up for Floatplane. Do it. It's fantastic.

Free in terms of materials but $200 worth of tools (file, circular saw, angle grinder, drill, screw driver)...Well done. Next video should be how to build a free house and just 3D print the whole thing and forget about the fact that to get a 3D printer of that size costs 100s of thousands of dollars.

I did something similar, except I added a shell and I use it as a NAS and home entertainment center.

You have 1 hard-drive in your NAS?

At the moment. I have another one just haven't installed it yet(plan on doing a type manual backup described in DIY Perks video.) I don't have enough data for more than 4tb at the moment.

im more worried about the heatsink :P

I have my Cpu overclocked 1ghz and it stays under 50c under load. Cooler is fine. It performs about as good as my 212evo.

Thanks for the Inspiration Luke!

 

PS: I got to keep ALL the IO, meaning I have instant access to x2 USB 2.0 ports mic in and audio out and power/reset switches on all my test bench projects!, Also the photo above makes it look like the Motherboard try is bent, But it's not... Weird angle I guess.

 

If anyone wants to know what steps I took or how I i manged to make this "beast" just ask ill be happy to tell.

My DIY Testbench

I built this one before the video came out and its completely out of wood.

I used old hardware and still missing a CPU, Harddrive, RAM, Power supply and maybe a graphics card.

P.s.: I´m 15 and from germany.

Is that the retail anti static bag you have sitting underneath the motherboard? I so. remove it...

 

The outside of an static bags are not resistant to electrostatic discharge, and booting up with it sitting under the board could destroy your rig,

Built this beauty, only spent 30 bucks on a evga 600W psu. Intel Q6600 core 2 quad, 4 GB DDR2, 750GB laptop hard drive, 1TB desktop hard drive, and a GTX 770 that a buddy of mine just gave me because it had overheating issues (turned out it just needed new thermal paste) I call this the Garbage Can PC. Built it from spare parts lol

Dammit guys, now I have to make my own test bench. 

I was hoping to get a BBQ going this weekend but it looks like I'll be spending this Saturday with an angle grinder and a can of spray paint ._.

I've just built a DIY Testbench like two weeks ago :D

 

I had an old (realy old) Computer Case layin' 'round and thought: "man I realy need one of those fancy Testbenches for myself".

And well..... I think it turned out quite good even though I don't have a PSU and HDD mount yet nor a bottom plate.

My DIY Testbench even has a HDD LED, Power LED and power switch.

 

what do you guys think?
