Hothardware: “OBT, Open-Source Open-Air PC Building Done Right”

It’s been a while since our last blog entry, mainly because we’ve been busy with International CES 2017. The Open Benchtable featured on both the HWBOT Performance Matters Kick-off Event as well as the first stop of the HWBOT World Tour in Las Vegas, United States. During our preparation for the event, Chris Goetting from Hothardware had a look at the Streacom BC1 Open Benchtable and he came to a positive conclusion.

The assembly process is described as “quick and easy” and the table is praised for needing no fluff or gimmicks to deliver. That’s exactly the mind-set we designed the benchtable with! The review closes with a Editor’s Choice for Hardware Innovation and Excellence award. Thanks!

If videos are more your thing you’ll be pleased to know that Hothardware also made a livestream using the Open Benchtable for a PC build. The stream is about one hour and twenty minutes long, but gives you a prime insight in the building process of a system with the Open Benchtable as foundation. We’ve embedded the YouTube video for your pleasure below. Enjoy!
