yeah, you have a point about a bench, i might just whip something up myself to support the mobo and save on buying a bench, especially after i just checked shipping estimates which were like $100 - $200 lol

Yeah I too only use a bit of foam from Vince (Kingpin),he sells insulation too.I was looking at this cheap test bench that CoolerMaster do,It might not be flash but seems ok and nice and basic and would be good for my bench needs.It was quite cheap in OZ,think it was $69-$79,im waiting to see if they sell them locally too me so I could save on postage.They may be lot cheaper now too

You could always get a Dimastech Easy or Hard. The Easy is about $130 and the hard is about $60 in the US.

thanks guys their certinally arte some nice benches out there. this stuff from Dimastech looks pretty good but i might leave the bench for the moment or see what is availble here in the IT markets. Shipping in some cases is more than the bench itself lol

ive never used this pot but if it is what I think it is then this would be a great learning pot. The most trouble I had learning how to bench with a pot is the mounting and well looks like sf3d has that covered.



its not out yet but looks like it will be soon. But like anything new I would be skeptical untill some "real" input is out on it not just reviews from people who were sent a free pot to try. From what I hear the inflection point can hold its own with just about any pot, but if the mount is as sexy as it looks then its golden.

guess that's why you have never used it, and that pot looks like it will be good and as EK are a part of it hopefully the prices are on the nice side

I think prices are going to be far from nice. $250+ I'd bet.

Worth it? Depends on performance. The mounting looks awesome.
