HighSpeed PC Tech Station

It is only when you come to install a motherboard into the Tech Station do you realise the most fundamental design flaw: the motherboard is on the lower level when it should be on the top. Having slid the motherboard into place, you then have to remove it again to install the CPU and heatsink because unlike a regular case, you have no top-down access.

To show you how this concept can be executed well, take a look at our Intel test station. In these photos, the system is running X1900XTX CrossFire and while all the PSU cables are a mess, you can instantly see the advantage of having the motherboard on the upper level. To be honest, the Tech Station would require very little design modification to support this configuration, but this is something HighSpeed PC will need to work on for the future. In its current form, the layout severely handicaps your ability to swap components with ease.

This is a honest review of the this case - it's quite a bit overpriced - has design flaws - and can only be interesting to a select few.

The problem is everybody is an expert of his own "can do everything" attitude...... until they really get to do it or find the time to do it.

What we pay has a lot to do with how much time we have; and the priority in using the time. When time is what you don't have; you will have to pay someone else to do it for you.

For example: you don't want to go out with your wife or girl friend because you are so good in making this tech-station of a great design of yours ...... someone else will go out with your wife or girl friend free of charge. So, you now have saved money for paying this overpriced tech-station with design flaw, and have one of your own design and make proudly showing off to your friend who has taken your wife or girl friend.

Which price can you afford?

also fails to follow the trend of real test setups, testing things inside a regular case


marketing monkeys have failed to do proper market research

Calling out name such as monkey is not the proper way. Perhaps, you are one of those experts who talk more and rarely do anything.
