If you love to bench as much as I do, and I suspect you do, then you have probably put time and money into your benching station. I thought it would be fun to see what everyone else is doing and get ideas of how to improve my benching station.

When I first started benching, my whole setup was sitting on the floor. After a few weeks of neck pains and back aches I decided to move everything to my main PC desk. As my gear and mess grew I decided to devote an entire space to just benching gear. Here is my updated setup with the bench and loop that Sunset1 helped me get.












Go get your phone and snap some pictures of your current setup...

Cool setup!

I took this a while ago, but it's more or less how my benching area looks now. Just imagine z170 gear instead of z87 tongue.gif

As my gear and mess grew I decided to devote an entire space to just benching gear. Here is my setup, I still need to buy a proper tech station but this old HTPC case turned inside out works for now. I also need a proper mouse/keyboard but that is pretty low priority right now.

Pic is not real good, use standoffs to raise the MB off the table cheap and easy. Have USB & PS2 KBs & Mice with as little investment as possible.

@jjjc_93 I like your station, super clean and organized where everything has its place.

@Aleslammer That is a crazy water setup you have going there...what is that big tank for with all the stickers? Please explain that setup, I see a pressure gauge which makes me think you have some SS/Water hybrid happening there. This is exactly why we need a thread like this, I want to see all the awesome stuff you guys dream up.

@ mllrkllr88

The tank is a 1 gallon (3.8L) stainless food storage container turned into a reservoir so I can turn my fans off and ice the water. Can’t see water movement unless I open the lid on the reservoir so added a pressure gauge. Insulation on the tubing covers sensors for a better idea of inlet and outlet temps.

It looks like a really nice setup with the shelves for the MB's and everything. I want to get one of those shelves like you have with the large cubbies, it looks like Ikea. That hole in the wall above your monitor is confusing me a bit tho headscratch.gif
