Title: [WTS] Aluminum cases for you next mining rig! [sold out]
Post by: jamesg on April 09, 2013, 07:39:09 PM
Fellow miners,

I've recently noticed a bunch of people still building GPU rigs, for BTC and LTC.

I have built tons of GPU rigs and have done them on a custom chassis that is pictured below.

These open air rig chassis hold up to 5 GPU's and have a custom mounting plate for 2 ATX power supplies.

They also have an ATX motherboard plate fixed to them and are ready to accept your mining equipment.

The price will be $175 (assembled) or $160 (un-assembled) (paid in Bitcoin at the 24 hour average price) with shipping included

I only have 20 of these bad boys to sell so act fast. . . . . .

If you need instructions for assembly, you can now view them at the link below.

PM me if you would like a PDF copy.

Looks very cool! Shame I'm across the pond :) I just got a few more GPU so could certainly use a couple of these.

Very cool. Looks nice. (very professional looking)

Those really are nice looking.

Question, would you happen to have just the plates for mounting the motherboards/PSU? Did you make them? or buy them.
shipping would be way cheaper and I could build my own frame.

Where are you located roughly?

By the way these are a steal, I roughly threw some numbers together on how much to make your own, and he is basically making no money.

edit: Ah I think they are the Lian li trays correct?

i like your design on it, could i offer a bit of a suggestion. you could possibly drill the end rails and add hanger plates so you could mount a couple fans on it to point directly at the cards. just a suggestion tho.

Yes. $150 per case. You would also have your choice of shipping it assembled or unassembled.

Be warned that if you ask for it to be unassembled, you'll need a mallet and some elbow grease.  :P

If he is, buy it from him at $150 each, the cost on making is probably near $100 and a good deal of work.

Since there seems to be more interest for cases, I'm going to have 20 more created.

I'll leave 10 of them unassembled if some of you would like to assemble them. Expect an update in this thread when they are ready.

As an update:

We should have everything together to begin selling more cases a week from Monday ( May 6th, 2013 ).

All new cases will be in pieces and you'll need a mallet and some elbow grease to put them together. They will comes with detailed instructions for assembly and all of the parts necessary including any self tapping screws that are needed.

I will not be taking any orders or coins until the cases are in hand and are ready to ship.

If you have any questions, you can reply here or PM me and I will get them answered as quickly as possible.

Best,
James

Hi James,

I know this is probably not the right thread to ask, but since you are very experienced in this, do you have any advise/writeup on building a GPU based rig from scratch ? Now that I bought the frame, want to put in the rest together - any form of guidance will be great help!  ;D

Hello all,

I am available from 8am EST to around 5pm EST Monday through Friday to answer PMs and get cases out the door. I do not keep a computer at home and try to stay away from electronic devices outside of this time window.

The BTC price for today is $110.00.

We have 6 cases still available and 20 more showing up later in the week.

As always, PM me with any questions.

Bump for the bumpies  ;D

2 more cases are available.

Also, if anyone would like to report back with their experiences building / using the cases I would definitely like to hear what others think of them.

Don't laugh too hard  :D

Thanks for the feedback eweitte! I'm glad you received your package quickly.

Remember to checkout the bottom of the first post for instructions on putting together the case.

Lol not apparently reading close enough left/right was the same I had to take one side completely apart.  Guess I don't need the gym anytime soon!  Lunch is over I will stop by at 5am to move everything into it.

Hey Giga,

I was wondering if you'd be awesome to send me your plans for the aluminum cases you build? I am a poor college kid and cant afford one of yours right now but my dad is a woodcrafter and is willing to build me one out of scraps he has, but I am not sure on the dimenisions or anything. I didn't inherit the blueprint gene so here I am. Thanks in advance :)

The PDF lists dimensions probably easy to figure out off that.  I stayed late instead of coming in at 5a.  Mining away :)  Now time to throw 3 more cards on it.

That is great to hear! Post some pics when you have all of the cards on it.

Glad you were (mostly) happy with case. We would pre-drill holes for the gpus expect we don't know ahead of time how many cards are going to be run with the case.

We could pre-drill for 5 cards, what do you guys think?

5 is a good number even if I ran 4-5 like a bit of space between cards

Haha especially since I couldn't find my mallet and used a 5lb neoprene dumbell.  Wasn't bad taking a side apart now THAT was a workout.

Still waiting on usps. Tracked my package though and it says delivery attempt made on the 13th at around 8:30PM (which im skeptical about, as I and a few others were in the house at the time), redelivery was supposed to happen on the following day. Now it is the day after that and nothing has arrived still, not even a "we missed you, your package is with..." note.

Emailed twice and phoned up long distance rates to get told that the office as closed and no agents could take my call lol.

Aww man its one of those days for me, can't wait till work is over and I can sleep away the rest of the day, hopefully theres a note from the mailman when I arrive home also, keep your fingers crossed for me!  ;).

James could you give them call tomorrow if I message you? I cant really stay on hold when calling from here, s' go up fast on phonelines. If you check the tracking number youll see what I am talking about regarding the delivery attempt.

I wonder who is the usps parter for the uk, is it just royal mail or do they subcontract that out again to another smaller company.

Cheers!

Bowen

I am out of stock on cases again. We should have some more in next week.

Until then, if you are interested in a case, shoot me a PM.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased a case!  :D

Thanks! Nice one!

Hopefully they drop it on my doorstep soon.

EDIT: Just got home to find the delivery man knocking some fresh dents into my door lol. Case received. Thanks again Giga!

I'll get a few pics up once I have a full set of parts in there. Repainting the rig room and clearing some stuff out before its back to work.

Cases are back in stock! If you have been on the fence about owning one of these cases, please note that these are the last 20 that will be made for a while.

If you have any questions or are ready to get one, just PM me.

Best,
James

P.S. I'm still waiting to see some pictures of what you guys have done with your cases!  ;D

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the case! I was about to order aluminium and you popped up with these at the same time.

They are extremely easy to put together and extremely hard to take apart, so to any prospective buyers: make sure you get the correct parts in the corrects places :)

I drilled my rack for 4 cards as 5 I think is a little too tight, I had 5 in there and 2 PSUs but I decided against the extra cards and PSU in the end, it looks so much cleaner and less like frankensteins desktop :D

We've felt this pain too and is why we offer an assembled option!  :D

I do 5 cards on most of my rigs just to make sure ROI is the shortest time possible. More cards on a MB / PSU combo just means quicker payback whether you are talking about BTC or LTC.

Thanks for positioning the pic, I'm glad others are finding the case as useful as I do.  :)

Do you have any cases in stock?

These were a pain in the dick to assemble. Would highly recommend paying for the professional assembly. I smashed my finger several times and cracked a tile on my floor in the process. However, they are of EXCEPTIONAL build quality.
