The HSPC Tech
Station (patent pending) is a fast-access
- a hardware workbench bringing PC components
within easy reach yet keeping them safe and secure.
The Tech Station makes a perfect
workstation for computer hobbyists, overclockers, frequent upgraders,
IT Professionals, PC Shops. - For
anyone needing frequent and fast access to internal PC components.
With tool-less storage for
all PC components it
has solid non-conductive construction
and lots of
hardware not included. Shown with optional second set of HDD Rails.
The Tech Station Includes:
A good home for your hardware:
Based on ATX form factor motherboard
specifications providing a full 13x13” of surface area for total accommodation
of all motherboards from micro ATX* to large extended ATX (server) motherboards.
The motherboard is perfectly secure on the upper shelf with a high
friction rubberized standoff system that supports the motherboard 1/4" off the
bench surface (accommodates CPU cooler back plates and increases air
circulation). Nylon guide posts position the motherboard perfectly on the Tech
Station. AGP/PCI cards are securely locked in place with thumbscrews so the
motherboard is safe yet available for hands-on work and is easily removed.
- Two tier work bench
- PCIe/AGP/PCI/ISA card brace with thumb screws
- HDD Rails for storage/cooling for two hard drives
- Secure rubberized motherboard standoff system
- 120mm fan: HDD and motherboard cooling
- Neoprene mat for non-slip lower bench surface.
- Assembly & usage details
- ATX Control Kit:
Mini on/off & reset switches
Power & HDD LED's
Storage/Cooling Rail System:
the HDD's in/out on smooth non-conductive acrylic rails. Two
standard 3.5" hard drives can be easily inserted,
protected and cooled by rails suspended under the top shelf. One end of the HDD
Rails open to catch air from the 120mm cooling fan, a nylon stopper keeps the
drive from making contact with the fan. The Large model can support an optional
second set of HDD Rails to hold a total of four hard drives!
AGP/PCI add-in cards!
The AGP/PCI support brace
solves the problem of loose motherboard add-in cards, loose cards can damage
circuitry. The brace offers universal
support for all add-in cards - blocking no cables or connections, and has some
lateral flexibility to make adding/removing cards easy. Nylon thumb screws
twist into the top of the brace and are positioned at ATX form factor spec
locations so the AGP card and six PCI cards can be locked in place. The
support brace can also be removed, flipped over and turned to support BTX form
Bottom shelf, load it up:
shelf is for stacking the drives and power supply. Includes a neoprene mat
to make the entire shelf a non-slip and non-conductive work surface.
There is plenty of real estate here to
hold optical, extra hard disks and floppy drives.
PC On/Off and monitor HDD activity:
Plugging directly onto the
motherboard, The ATX Control Kit takes the place of the computer
case power and reset switches, power and hard disk drive activity lights, and
system warning speaker so that PC hardware can operate totally independent of a
standard computer case.
The Tech Station is made of
non-electrically conductive, scratch-resistant, high grade polymers. (The
bench can hold over 150 lbs!)
Metal screws and brackets are not exposed in sensitive areas, the motherboard
rests on protective rubber standoffs, the lower shelf has a non-slip neoprene
work mat, and the test bench sits on non-slip thermoplastic rubber feet.
No worries of frying your hardware like
with a metal bench.
A 120mm 12v fan positioned on the
left side forcing air over heat sensitive components on the motherboard and the
Hard Disk Drive(s)
the top shelf. A finger guard is included but the fan can accommodate one
on both sides.
room to work:
With the motherboard on the top shelf there are no
height restrictions for CPU heatsinks and all the motherboard components can be
changed very easily!
The height between shelves is 7”
offering enough room for all your optical drives, power supply, and even more
hard drives if needed.
