Would anyone be willing to provide links to parts and a brief explanation of how they assembled their milk crate rigs? 

I imagine you would need a 1) milk crate; 2) pre-screwed metal ATX plate; 3) way to attach the plate to the milk crate; 4) motherboard, cpu, RAM, power supply, hard drive and of course your GPUs; 5) how to attach the power supply to the crate? ; 6) where to get the resistors or dumb DVI plugs; 7) riser cards?  can you put a pci express 3.0 video card into an pci-express x1 slot?  Cool how best to network and automate the monitoring of all the workers... 

Currently I have 3 PC's, one with two identical XFX 7850's, another with a gigabyte 7850 and one with XFX 7870 -- together getting me a measly 1,880kh/s...  would like to see if anyone had a suggestion on how I could scale these down to a more power efficient and cooler crate rig... 

Suggestions?

I just layed my mobo at the bottom of one crate and screwed the cards into the crate using this thread/picture as kind of a guide.  as all milk crates are different my was modified a little, had to make some holes to fit cables through.
