The BC1 Mini is considered to be the best open testbench for SFF PC enthusiast, content creators and consumers. The BC1 Mini v2 uses the familiar form factor from the original BC1 Mini, and has been re-designed to be more environmentally friendly, robust & functional. The BC1 Mini v2 is available for purchase via QuietPC

The BC1 Mini V2 features improved rubber feet, which are larger and closer to the edges for better stability. The PSU can also be mounted on either side vs. single side with v1.
One welcomed change over BC1 v1 is the inclusion of 12mm PC Vandal Switch mounts on v2 models. 12mm Vandal Switch is not included.
Some power supplies will require PSU spacers, such as Corsair SF series to offset the power supply in order to be compatible.
No physical instructions are included, as Streacom has opted for modern & environmental approach, using digital PDF. The box has also been redesigned to be more environmentally friendly than its predecessor. Instructions can be found here.

The BC1 Mini v2 is masterpiece in size, build quality & engineering. The anodised finish is superb, but keep in mind that black colour is more prone to fingerprints and marks and will be more noticeable than on the silver or titanium variants.
