Streacom sent us the refreshed version of the BC1, an open bench table designed for overclockers or all those who wants to have easy access to components. This type of product isn’t widely popular, but those testing hardware daily, it can be a god-send with the advantages of the open bench table. Since the BC1 V2 is very handy and easy to use, you will see it on all the photos of my many future reviews.
Streacom proved its top quality in previews reviews, so we don’t worry about it, but we are still curious about the various ideas that brought the BC1 to life.
I hope this article will help you decide If the BC1 V2 open bench table is a product for you.
In the beginning, product features and some technical data.
The BC1 is a collaboration between HWBOT, Overclocking-TV and Streacom to create a truly exceptional benchtable, one that redefines the product category and towers above current offerings in terms of portability, aesthetics, quality and design. It also forms the foundation of the Open Benchtable Project, a community-driven platform that will allow the benchtable to evolve over time through accessories and mods from third-party developers.
Being only 8mm thick and weighing a mere 1.75kg, the Open Benchtable is uniquely designed for travelling overclockers, enthusiasts and technical professionals who need put together a full open PC while on the road. It uniquely integrates all the components needed to quickly set up a benching or test platform including; standoffs, screws and brackets.
The entire BC1 is made of precision machined, anodized aluminium which offers fantastic rigidity while also being extremely lightweight. The body also features an integrated carry handle and has been ingeniously designed to incorporate the legs, standoffs, and brackets which all seamlessly stow within. This means no moving (or indeed rattling) parts when in transit.
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. The BC1 supports all form factor motherboards, plus up to four VGA cards. Integrated mounting brackets support system fans and radiators in a variety of configurations.
