PrimoChill Praxis WetBench Review @ ThinkComputers
Everyone has a different idea as to what a test bench is, what i needs to do and what kind of support it needs to have. Personally I'm old school finding that a broken down chassis and using the motherboard tray.
Of course with that said EVERYONE has tried to improve the simple design, so much in fact that some are just cases with the sides ripped off while others are super simple and giving you less than I have with a broken down case.
PrimoChill has entered the test bench chassis world with their Praxis WetBench. As the name suggests it is a test bench designed for watercooling. Or, as I see it, a chassis with external watercooling support.
Unlike typical PC cases where you have a wide variety of options to choose from the test bench category is very limited. Having a test bench is great, it allows you to easily switch out hardware, monitor components and much more. We have two different test benches here at ThinkComputers and when we were building out our Z270 test system it was time to get third. Both of our previous test benches got the job done, but had certain things that we did not like. After doing some research the PrimoChill Praxis WetBench was at the top of our list. The motto for the Praxis is “A testbench with watercooling in mind” which definitely caught our attention. The biggest thing about many test benches is that really do not have radiator support, which is very disappointing as we use AiO’s for our test systems. Let’s jump in and see if the Praxis is the perfect test bench for us!
It is a self assembled chassis that has accessory storage underneath while the motherboard and cooling components sit topside at an angle for maximum viewing. I can't diss, it looks good but cannot say if it is "my" type of bench.
