Hello dear community! I know lately I’ve been asking many questions but there’s till an open one for me that I can’t get decided on: what case to get for my new ITX build.
I was looking for a small option and bought a Silverstone RVZ03. It’s very flawed, panels don’t fit very well and the just RGB version lacks a controller to change around the RGB strip on the front so I returned it (it only has a proprietary connector with a SATA adapter to power it a single colour. A box is needed to break the RGB to a standard 12V plug that goes into the motherboard).
While I was browsing Amazon I found a decent looking ITX test bench that costs 50€. It’s made of five alluminum beams, plexi mount for a PSU and some random metal and plastic pieces to put it together and screw things on it. I think it would look cool with my system (MSI 2070 Super Gaming X, Asus Crosshair VIII Impact, 3700X, 16GB G.Skill 3600 C18, stock AMD cooler). But I’m worried that it might be too “dangerous” having everything exposed like that.
I don’t have pets or kids around that might poke at it and make a mess.
That being said, is there anyone among you that has a setup with an open air test bench and uses it every day? How’s your experience been so far? Would you switch to a case?
