    A cardboard box from a motherboard on a desk works wonders. Seriously.

    I believe Lian Li is supposed to be sending us the T60, so if they do I'll let ya know (and review it).

    There are about a handful of test benches out there on the market, vary in price range and pros/cons. Depends how much you want to spend, but they generally last forever so it's a good investment overall. Also depends what you want to do with it. Water cooling? Extreme cooling?

    Generally speaking, these are the main ones on the market:

    -HSPC Topdeck
    -Microcool Banchetto
    -Dimastech EasyBench
    -CoolerMaster Lab bench
    -Danger Den Torture Rack
    -Sunbeamtech Ultra-tech

    Antec has the Skeleton but it's not really a test bench, it's more of an open-air case. And Lian Li has the new T60 but it looks more like a hybrid than a test bench really.

    Of all the ones listed, my opinion is the Microcool, Dimastech, and Danger Den are the top ones. Dimastech is based out of Italy and they ship worldwide. Not sure about Microcool or Danger Den.

    I researched just about all of those before I bought mine. Astetically, the Sunbeam Ultra tech is the nicest but most expensive. The HSPC was OK but the Tecnofront I purchsed was nice looking and reasonable. All the rest are for basic building and don't have much for looks.

    I thought the Antec was way too compact to do tinkering......
