While it is cute, I voted no for the following reasons....

- There aren't that many ITX motherboards out there that are well built for overclocking (although Gigabyte is coming out with one this generation, the epic Asus Impact series is no more, replaced with the Strix which isn't built to quite the same lofty goal and standards)
- SFX power supplies mean you're going to have to have a second power supply on the side if you want to do any kind of semi-serious 3D benching (they currently max out at what, 700-750 watts of power?)
- Crossfire/SLI and ITX generally don't mix, and if you put a dual core card in, have fun with the previous point

If it was a slightly smaller one that supported mATX and a full size power supply I'd consider it, but an ITX one that will be in the same price bracket as the original is something I wouldn't consider due to the power supply limitations and the lack of actual proper motherboard options in the ITX format.

ITX one would be great for benching when traveling, I'd buy one.
2d as well as legacy 3d should be fine with SFX PSU while saving a lot of bag space.

If both are available as a pack (mini and full size OBT), I would buy it.

Any idea if/when it may be available? I am planning on picking up the full size OBT in the somewhat near future.

Right now, we haven't reached a significant enough interrest to get the small size table produced.
The larger one is already back for order on our website. It's in production now and we estimate shipping for early May.

Thumbs up Re: OBT / BC1 mini

I vote yes to to Mini Benchtable, yes, yes, yes!!! I am a huge Small Form Factor fanboy. Been loving the itx stuff for the last 5 years or so. I would go into debt to get a Mini Benchtable.

Tbh I was thinking the standard one is too small :P one that supports my z9pe d8 ws would be nice as that doesn't really fit my current test Bench I have to put it on the desk on foam and it takes up so much room.

Why not change the leg design and have them wrap around the board, not like adding 4 or 5cm would make it too large for travel. Might take away a bit of the charactor but it will free up a lot of space in the center allowing you to re-create something clever such as RGB's, haha that ones for you CN.
