Tech Stations ATX KitThere are a few features I really like about my Tech Station (other than how accessible the motherboard is) and that is the ATX control kit that comes with it. The ATX control kit has a little power switch, a reset switch, HDD LED, Power LED and a PC speaker. I also really like how they have done the motherboard standoffs. Most of them are just soft rubber parts that stop the motherboard from sliding around but there are also two threaded posts to go through the holes that hold it in place. The point of this is that if you want to change the motherboard that is on it, all you need to do is lift it upwards and it comes off. You also have the option to screw a nut on the threaded post for a more permanent solution.


They are a little expensive based on the materials involved and the assembly takes time, but I was glad I bought it from the very first time I used it. My first use was when I had a clients computer that wouldnt post. I loaded their CPU and RAM onto the motherboard that was installed on my tech station and it was nice to have so much room rather than trying to squeeze parts into a tight case.

The second time I was really glad I had one was when I was using it for data recovery on a clients computer. I left the computer installed on my tech station running for hours and when I came back I noticed that my CPU fan had stopped spinning. I immediately thought this was going to be a big problem so I jiggled the mouse to see if it was still working at the system was running fine, not locked up or dead like I expected. I put my hand on the cpu heatsink and discovered it was completely cool to the touch. It turns out that the big 120mm fan on the side of the tech station was keeping the cpu heatsink cool enough which saved my CPU from potentially frying.

I have only had mine for about a week, I have used it many times since and I am glad I have one. Its definitely an asset to my business.
