Open Benchtable Unboxing and PC Build Guide

Yesterday, Trouffman (Isaïe) streamed a PC build guide using the Open Benchtable for over four hours: from Open Benchtable in the box to fully assembled system. Isaïe is a founding member of the Open Benchtable project and regular host of the Web-TV OverClocking-TV. He said it’s been a while since he wanted to do a stream to show how to build a system using the Open Benchtable as a solid foundation. He received three (3!) tables last week and in the excitement of receiving the final product, he scheduled a stream.

During the four hours of livestream, Isaïe covered the following topics

  1. History and design story of the Open Benchtable – how the table came to be and what’s the thought process behind some of the design choices.
  2. Unboxing of the Open Benchtable – showing future owners how to unpack the Open Benchtable and get it ready for usage.
  3. A complete PC Build guide with the Open Benchtable – preparing the Open Benchtable for assembly as well as put together a complete system

The stream was live on the OverClocking-TV Twitch channel, but if you missed it there is now a replay available on the YouTube channel.

[Video] Open Benchtable, Laser Engraving Process

Here’s an update regarding the first batch of Open Benchtables. We are pleased to tell you that the initial batch are now produced and undergoing the final steps of the production process. Initial orders will be shipped out later this week.

Just to give you some insight into the production process (and a little tease) here’s a video of the final process that the benchtable undergoes – laser engraving. The benchtable first gets cut out using a computer controlled cutting machine known as a CNC machine. Once the separate parts have has been produced  the product then undergoes finishing. First its sandblasted to give it a kind of grainy finish,  then the surface is then oxidized to give it the final color.  This process also hardens the surface to make it less prone to scratching and damage. Finally we come to the laser engraving stage. It’s at this point that the unique serial number is added as well as the OBT logo. All that remains after the engraving is a final quality check and packaging. Check out the video below which gives you a close up view of the engraving process.

Open Benchtable – The 3D Promo Video

When you’re launching a new product it’s always great to have lots of luscious pics of it – ones that look absolutely stunning. With the renderings and live pics we’ve published recently, I’m sure you’ll agree that we nailed that aspect of the launch. However as well pictures we also commissioned a 3D promo video to show exactly how the Open Benchtable works.

Today we are happy to say that the video is now complete, and wow… does it look good! It shows how the legs, brackets, screw and supports fit into the overall sleek design, building up a full ATX system that includes an all-in-one cooled GPU and CPU. Enjoy!
