case with removeable moBo tray

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a "Decent" case with removeable MoBo Tray. Does not have to look great. Intended use is for experiments, kinda like a computer Breadboard. I would appreciate some recommendations.

Lian-Li has some cases with a removable tray... but they aren't inexpensive!

You can get the MB tray for about $25 though... then perhaps build tech station.

Why not get a techstation? Or even better, build one yourself? The bought ones dont usually have a removable tray as such, which is why building your own could be a better (and way more fun) option. Hope this helps

If I had room in my tiny garage work area, I'd definitely buy one of these. One day when I have a legitimate workshop, then I'll purchase or make one.

Thanks for the Input! I had not thought about the Tech Station or the standalone tray. Somehow I had the wrong impression that the Tech stations were all very large.

Nah the one i made is fairly small, it sits up on my desk no winstead of underneath. you can make them basically as amall as your mobo, even smaller if you want i suppose. The bought tech stations are generally fairly large, although that's not the case.

If you did want an actual case id recommend the raidmax smildon. The mobo tray side swings down allowing for easy installation. I have one of these myself and it's definately a great feature!

From here on out every case I get is going to have a section cut out of the back so I no longer have to remove the motherboard to mount an aftermarket heatsink. It seems like cases with a removable tray always cost more than I'm looking to spend so this is an easy way to make heatsink mounting easier.

Plus I already have a Dremel.

I know that's not quite what you mean but it's an option for those who may not want the hassle of taking the motherboard out every time.

Coolermaster stacker series have removeable mb tray, other than that Id go with Lian Li PC A16 or the Silverstone Temjin.
