I wonder what another two at the other side and enclosing the case would do.

That was my original plan...would be interesting to see!

Datacenter has not complained about the open rig yet but if they do I may have to enclose it.

Fantastic Build, but how do you manage to boot all the cards without display? Dummy plug?

Very nice build - really gives me something to think about....build my own alu, pvc or buy.

It's hard to see but I have a Displayport to VGA adaptor in GPU0. That is going to an IP KVM.

I know huh? Did not realize the two 200mm fans would fit so well. Imagine if they were embedded into the frame design? That would have been cool.

Very nice build - really gives me something to think about....build my own alu, pvc or buy.

If I had the option to buy I would. Building the case was fun but a lot of work...especially for someone who has not picked up a power tool in 15+ years. At the time I started there was not a case option that fit into a 19" rack. I still don't think there is one available. I looked at farming out the work but was getting quotes in the $400 range.

I stared this thread because the guys in IRC asked that I document the build. I tried to post what I learned in the process. It is also nice to have something to reference if I build another one.

If you have the time, patience and tools to make one yourself go for it! Please post pictures Smiley

I see, so in theory with one dummy plug all the GPUs will work right?

I have never tried to run it without a monitor plugged into GPU0 so I really don't know. One tip....when using a Mini Displayport to VGA adaptor make sure it is an "Active" adaptor. Passive adaptors (like the one Apple sells) will only give you a resolution of 640x480. Knowing that would of saved me some frustration and a few trips to the store!

Yeah!

If you wanted to you could play games, maybe hookup a 1080p monitor and load up portal

Looks like Spotswood has made a version of his 80/20 cases similar to my design.

If I need another GPU case this is a nice option to have. Hope this thread helped in some way  Roll Eyes

Good job!

I would probably recommend it be made it a bit longer though. I made the mistake of making it too short as well.

Thought I should post that I have finally (about a month ago) retired this system. It has been shut down and is in the process of being dismantled. For most of it's life it was mining scrypt but towards the end when the GPU fans gave out (and they ALL gave out eventually) it was transitioned to X11.

One of the power supplies has found a new home in an A2 Mega Terminator. More info on that here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1145159

This being a hobby I do not really track profits/loss but without a doubt it has made many times over the cost to build...but if you factor in my normal hourly bill rate I'm not so sure.  Wink

The GPU rigs were something to behold, they were affordable and available to everyone.  Thanks for your efforts.
