Danger Den Torture Rack 2 Tech Bench
Cases and Cooling
Article Publish Date:
The Torture Rack 2 is basically everything you would expect it to be when you order it from Danger Den with no surprises. Clean and thick acrylic makes for a solid setup. There’s enough room to work without things getting overly cramped, unless you’ve got a non-modular high end power supply. Everything fit together great and allowed for fast component switching.
I found out really quick that acrylic is indeed a fingerprint magnet. This may not matter to most who aren’t worried about taking pictures and things, but I found myself cleaning over and over again because the gloves were too small for me. The only other gripe I could really find was price. Danger Den prices the Torture Rack 2 at $139.99 USD, which is only ten dollars cheaper than its big brother. Considering that the smaller option is almost half as tall as the original without the extra holes for watercooling and such, I would think that the Torture Rack 2 would come in a little cheaper. The trade here I guess is portability and size.
Overall, I had a good time looking at Danger Den’s Torture Rack 2 and would definitely suggest that anyone looking for an open-air system that will not be using a high end water cooling system give this a look. It’s a solid, compact setup that gets the job done without a lot of frills and provides a nice place for your components to do their work……until you get the itch to switch them out again.
