The first thing you are going to want to install is your power supply as it sits at the bottom of the test bench. Once connected it would be a good idea to run your cables. You can install your hard drives too. Now depending on how many drives you are installing you can install them in the trays or even on the main platform (laying flat) under the motherboard tray.
Next you can install your radiator or AiO cooler. We decided to throw a NZXT Kraken X52 on there. Whats nice about the Praxis WetBench is that the radiator mount is completely removable. The radiator mount supports radiators 120 mm to 360 mm. Depending on the thickness of your radiator you can mount it on the inside of the mount so less is sticking out the back.
Now a quick note on AiO’s and the Praxis WetBench. Once installed our NZXT Kraken X52 just reaches the CPU socket on our motherboard. To me it seemed like the tubing on the Kraken Series is a bit longer than others, but since we do not have any other AiO’s in right now besides the Kraken series we cannot test this. We did have the Kraken installed inside of the radiator mount, so installing an AiO radiator outside could give you more tubing length.
After you are done getting your radiator installed now it is time for your motherboard. Just like the radiator mount, the motherboard tray is completely removable, which means you can easily install your motherboard, graphics card, memory and CPU cooler on a completely flat surface. Then once you are done you can put the motherboard tray right back on top. For those wondering the Praxis WetBench not only supports ATX motherboards, but E-ATX motherboards as well.
The last and final thing you are going to need to do is run your cables. The motherboard tray offers long openings on both sides and the bottom so routing your cables is a breeze.
