Just use wood instead of alu. I've done this but moved my hardware to 19" Rackcases.

I use shoe racks from eBay. Cheap and saves time obtaining wood and building etc. You can get them for $20

I started with wooden frames but "graduated" into using garage shelves like this:



I added some thin, wood back supports (red lines) with holes or screws on the top so that I can quickly "hang" or remove the cards (blue) if needed.

The bottom supports are to keep the cards steady.

Mobo/PSU are on the slabs - you can even make them half slabs or fix them without the slabs for more airflow.

Easy to make, makes it very easy to disassemble/troubleshoot rigs and the airflow is great, you can put them in front of each other so that one big fan can blow through more of them. And you can easily decide how many cards you want to put on a shelf, how much space you want between cards.

Sweet. This is a great idea, thank you

I have one of these made with PVC on Ebay.  This is completely ready to assemble and you can buy with or without GPU.  It is broken down in easy to assemble pieces to ship.

How about the assembling guide to mine the bitcoin with the proper rig set up. Will that be find inside the package of the rig set up pieces.
I have came across the many youtube videos which is been easy to make the mining with the wooden mining rig.
May I know what would be cost of the 6 card set up card rigs.

what your skills are and what resources you have should determine your path.  I'd assume the fastest ROI is the goal while keeping everything functioning well.  In my case I already can do carpentry/furniture so i've build most of mine all out of the scrap pile I already had at home at zero cost, a lot of it was pure odds and ends ready to burn.  If you DIY scrap wood or cheap PVC would work.  if time/skill is an issue amazon some cheap shelving.  those aluminum rigs are silly and only hinder your earnings, that's for people who are dumb or like wasting money or honestly this is their favorite thing to do and the cost doesn't matter.

all you fools using wood for frames is just dumb, you do realize your giving your rig the ability to start a fire if something goes wrong. last time I checked wood makes good fire starter metal does not. and to those that use a full shelf that's not all that smart cause when you have to move said shelf you have to take off all the hardware, unless your going to move it with the hardware on it and take a chance to damage something like an idiot, id swear society is getting more and more stupid with each passing day, sure wood is cheaper than a lot of metal, but it poses risks, if anyone who has seen what happens when things go horribly wrong they know, and likely do not use wood frames. only takes 1 part to malfunction in such a way you lose it all because yall were just too careless to put some actual thought into the crafting of your frames, ya can blame no one but yourself

this guy made a poor shelf, the gpus aren't even properly supported, look at that gap between the top shelf and the risers, gpu is purely being held on at only one point which is on the I/O plate which isn't that strong to begin with, don't follow this guys crafting skills there clearly horrible and not enough thought went into the production of his frame
and again with the wood, just spend a little more and you get something that looks way better, and it doesn't pose a fire risk if something goes bad, it only takes about 40 dollars if that to make a good frame from angled aluminum. anyone who tells you otherwise are pulling your chain

PVC made will not be able to simple house hold utility as well but wooden rig frame pretty fine bear the vibration, heating isssues and etc. I do not think that pvc will bear all these issues. When I started mining rig with the multiple Nvidia cards I have chosen the wooden rig only and made the clamps to bolt all those.
Should have it in the cooling place and proper psu to avoid the heating issue.

Wooden frame FTW! Easy to cut and in general a lot safer to manage compared to aluminium rigs

I'm installing a rig in a the coolest room of my house, but it's a bit dusty, like stonewall and stuff...
I was wondering if some PVC around my rackcase, with a vent and some holes to change the air would be a good idea ? less dust, but maybe a bit more heat...
Any opinion ? Cheesy
