The BC1 Open Benchtable project sets out to create an open test bed platform for PC components adapting to the needs of PC enthusiasts. There are alternatives on the market, but the majority is constructed from existing PC case components, use cheap materials and lack design flare or portability. The lightweight BC1 is portable and fully accommodates the components needed to set up your system. This tool-less design allows for quick assembly and prevents the loss of small components during travel. It is fabricated from a single milled block of aluminum, sandblast-finished and includes custom stainless steel screws for a premium look and feel.
