Again PrimoChill is leading the way in the way we use and mod our beloved computers. This time PrimoChill has step outside (way outside) the box to create a one of a kind computer test bench. This is no ordinary test bench, the Wet Bench blurs the boundary between form and function.
With its slanted motherboard posture, the Wet Bench sets itself from the pack. Its simple but very practical approach to accessing the motherboard without interference from a door or secondary shelf. Wide open and ready to be tinkered with, was one of the core ideas that the bench was built around.

Not a finished product09-01-2014
Reviewer: Greg H. (1)
There are a good number of reasons why I''m giving this a 1 out of 5. First, there are no instructions aside from the most basic steps including in their "Part 1" instructions video on youtube. A year ago and still no sign of further instructions of any kind. Second, tolerances. On everything. Why make these tabs under the guise of making things easier when you have to sand them down to get them to fit, why should I, as a consumer, have to do the surface finishing for you? Third, the slots meant to hold your graphics/sound/pci cards in place don''t work. Mine are a good 2mm off from where they need to be. I don''t have the tools to mill these out further by myself, so I''m either going to have to buy the tools, or try to return this, or grind down the tabs on my $300 graphics card(shudder..) Lastly, the screws to hold the power switch/tubing/power feed-through covers are too short, you get maybe a couple threads into the nut to hold them in place, I have no doubt I''ll be replacing them soon. Also the rad cover bows out because it is slightly too long for the slots it fits into. The basic machining/engineering concepts of tolerances are just not present in this design. This isn''t a finished product. Do not buy this unless you have access to the tools and will to finish building their product for them.
Overall, not to bad.10-15-2013

First, the bad. The clips that are used to retain all the parts, as well as the slots the clips fit into, required a large amount of deburring. Plan for this when you sit down to assemble the product. Without doing this, excessive force (for acrylic) is needed to seat the clips into place. Now, that aside, the overall quality was quite nice. The finish from the laser was as good as can be expected. The parts were shipped complete and well protected. Peeling off the liners is a bit tedious, but worth it when the parts underneath look as nice as they do. There is some nicely engineered flexibility in these. Mounting holes for various accessories are abundant and the 0.375 thick base will allow you to drill and tap any other holes you may need. Primochill provides you with basic ''vandal-proof'' silver power and reset switches that are certainly functional, but since these switches are non-illuminated, you may wish to include a replacement set in your order. The expansion card retention mechanism is acceptable. Cards can still move a little. There are two items this bench really needs. First is a blank plate for the pass-through sections on either end of the motherboard. These would be of great help for both aesthetics and further customization. The second is some form of I/O panel with USB and audio ports, at the minimum. I would gladly spend more money for the convenience these two items would provide. It is safe to say that I am satisfied with this product. As is the case with most modders, ''box-stock'' is unacceptable and I will be further refining this to fit my needs.
