I use a Danger Den Torture Rack. Comes in 2 varients, one with lots of options for fans/watercooling and one that is very baisc. Full acrylic and you can cusomize the colors for what you want. I love mine. I am cooling my entire computer right now with an H50 and a single fan keeping my CPU at 27*C right now.

I am currently using a Banchetto 101 (love it) but am considering getting a Dimastech Easy Bench.

what are you going to use it for? air, water, ln2?

Dimastech benches i would take over anything for LN2 and other extreme cooling of the likes

i do mostly air and i have the Lian Li T60B which is nice, manufactured well but can be tippy in the back. they have a support for the back but it just doesn't overall keep me in the comfort zone. i also have the Tecnofront Raven, this is a very nice bench both for water and air but probably a little better for air. the panels are a bit thin but it still turns out to be a solid build.
my favorite would be the Danger Den Torture Rack. you just can't go wrong with this.
the banchetto is pretty but is also pretty expensive.

went with the lian li. I would have liked the danger den in smoke but deyam that's pricey. I just wanted somethin on the cheaper side to mess with for a while. bored of my rv02.

i have liquid cooling stuff but it'll probably be just on air

I think you'll be happy with the Lian Li:) As batrnut mentioned it can be a little unstabile so make sure you take your time setting it up. The tray can be mounted a few different ways and the rear mount has a few options also so checkout all your different mounting positions and you'll be fine. Good luck:)
