When testing out new hardware at Phoronix the systems are often running in an open environment atop a table rather than nestled away within an ATX case. While cases like the Raven RV02 and Fortress FT02 are wonderful to work with and use, when routinely swapping out hardware whether it's graphics cards or motherboards, it can be time consuming having to open up the chassis each time, remove any screws, pull out the existing hardware, and then install the new hardware. Running the hardware simply off its own cardboard box is often the quickest and most efficient path, but each system can occupy a lot of table space and lead to a rather cluttered work area. Fortunately, Lian Li has introduced a new ATX test bench called the PC-T60 that is designed for those enthusiasts or professionals that are frequently swapping out PC hardware.

The Lian Li PC-T60 Test Bench arrived in a relatively small cardboard box that was only marginally bigger than an ATX motherboard package itself. The PC-T60 comes fully disassembled and each aluminum part is package in a plastic bag to prevent scratches during shipment, there is a small cardboard box containing all of the assembly hardware, and then a small paper assembly guide. This aluminum test stand is available in black, silver, and red colors and the review sample we received from Lian Li's Taiwan office was the black model. The price on the Lian Li PC-T60 starts out at $100 USD and goes higher based upon color.
