I actually got the idea one day going back and forth with J7SC in the ban thread, followed up by a series of PMs between the two of us. Muffler Bearings' main platform consists of a control panel that is used to manage temps as well as monitor just about anything within the realm of feasible possibility (and then some), as well as conduct experiments and component level testing. The control panel is attached to a frame built to house two Watercool MORA3 radiators, 4x D5 vario pumps (2x2; dual loops), and two Heatkiller 200 reservoirs. Quick disconnects for both cooling fluid and electrical connections (e.g., signals; psus for the sub-platforms will be unique) will allow for relatively easy connection of the control panel to either the extruded aluminum test platform containing the motherboard or the Caselabs SMA8. While I have just about every conceivable module that was available via Caselabs for the SMA8 on hand, there will be no real need to add anything but fans for airflow to the SMA8.

Some of the test equipment I'll be using follows:
