The Wet Bench open-air test bench is Primochill's premier case offering. This acrylic-based enclosure features an innovative design allowing for easy access to the motherboard and PCIe cards without the hassle of removing case panels and mounting screws associated with a typical case motherboard change out. With a starting MSRP of $139.95, the Wet Bench is priced competitively in light of the configurability and features offered with the case.

The Wet Bench is unique in its design - Primochill built it to support custom water cooling solutions from the ground up. The base kit supports mounting the water cooling kit's radiator to the back plate, up to a 360mm size (supporting 3x120mm fans). Primochill also offers an optional backplate with support for up to a 480mm radiator (supporting up to 4x120mm fans).

Primochill designed the Wet Bench to electrically isolate all components from one another, to minimize the risk of shorting out the motherboard seated in the top plate of the test bench. With the exception of the motherboard mount screws, all screws and nuts are plastic based. The metal motherboard mounts have plastic heads on them. This design helps to electrically isolate the mounted components as well as minimizing scarring to the Wet Bench's acrylic surface.

Lack of detailed instruction manual, but now they have one, thanks, more photos with the your complete build would be nice, top, bottom, and side, plus one isometric, use a neutral gray backdrop. This case would look great with some lighting positioned to reflect/refract through the edges of the case. What about the EM shielding with all acrylic design?

Very nice review Morry. The only thing I would have liked you to add would be a couple more shots of it fully assembled from different angles. :D

Additional full system board pics have been added to the review as requested.  Thanks for pointing out this oversight...

How does the bottom fan on the psu get any air as the psu is flat on desk?
