DimasTech Easy V3.0 Testbench Review

Building The System
Installing all of the components, as you might expect, is a breeze. There’s very little to hinder you while installing any components. The only problem we encountered was the lack of a 2.5” drive mount, so we utilised a 2.5” to 3.5” adaptor instead.

Install the standoffs into the top of the chassis, attach the rubber feet to the bottom and mount your motherboard. Locate the PCI-E bracket, line it up with your GPU and tighten the bolts. It’s as simple as that really; some instructions still would’ve been nice though.

We mounted our Corsair RM750x PSU, along with Corsair braided cable mods in matching black and red theme, ensured all cables were routed into their relevant locations then placed the motherboard on top.

We also had an Arctic Cooling BioniX P120 cooling fan kicking about which happened to match the colour scheme perfectly, so we mounted that atop the semi-rigid arm to use as airflow over the RAM and VRMs while performing motherboard/CPU/RAM testing.

We then mounted our Corsair H150i Pro RGB watercooling loop to the side of the chassis and routed the pump out the side and onto the motherboard. Previously, this was mounted above the motherboard on a home-made rig so having it mounted securely improves things for us immensely.

A small issue we encountered here, where DimasTech could perhaps implement a fix, was in routing the fan connections. We didn’t want to have all three cables protruding from above the fans and going back inside the chassis, and it wasn’t possible due to the watercooling tube lengths, to mount the fans inside with the radiator outside. Therefore, we took it upon ourselves to perform a small modification.

All things attached, the system looks fantastic thanks to the striking Spicy Red paintwork and the beautifully matched Corsair braided PSU cables and coordinated Vengeance DDR4 RAM.
