Small Tech Station

 Small Tech Station

This small modular open frame PC test bench accepts a bottom mounted power supply, two 3.5-inch hard drives (or four SSDs), and two 120×3 radiators.

The test bench is made from 15mm square anodized t‑slot extrusion. The t‑slots can be used to mount cooling fans and/or radiators practically anywhere on the station.

The tech station pictured below is shown with optional end caps.

A PSU can be mounted anywhere along the entire back of the case (in any orientation).

Drives are mounted to the drive “rails” (slotted-extrusion) via rubber grommets.

An optical drive can be attached directly to the station via 90-degree angle brackets.

Four 3.5-inch or 5.25-inch devices can be mounted via an optional drive cage:
