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.

I'm doing it this way also, its a pretty easy and cheap option. Does not require a lot of skills to pull it off.
You get more space to use for your rigs. Looks great and when you cable management a bit its even better.

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

You sound like you have no clue what you are talking about. If your machines are creating enough heat to set a wood frame on fire then you have already melted your hardware your hardware. Also, pretty sure no one with enough equipment to require a full rack is going to just be moving shit around all the time. The best part is how you complain about society getting more stupid when you are the one saying the stupid shit.

yet your the one making an assumption that ive had rigs burn, which might I add I have not. I'm more careful than that, learn from other peoples mistakes. heat has nothing to do with it. most rigs are using 100+amps of dc which is more than enough to start a fire if somewhere were to malfunction, and yeah its real stupid that I don't use wood a friggin fire starter for crying out loud as a frame, so yeah I have no clue what I'm talking about except its clearly not me we are talking about here, its you. maybe you need to have a rig catch fire to see the real dangers of using a wooden frame, especially when you are putting not just yourself in harms way but others that possibly live there too with you, that's real smart

Tell that to retard that made metal frame that got himself killed, because unlike wood, metal actually conducts electricity

only retard here buddy is yourself and maybe that guy that got killed by electrocution lol, properly set up metal framed rig isn't going to do that, aluminum is a horrible conductor, while it still can, its a horrible conductor, now if steel was used now that lol could pose an issue. you happen to know what kind of material he used? chances are I bet steel was used aluminum with as much dc amps as were using would prolly melt the aluminum, ac same thing, aluminum doesn't handle current very well lol hence why it was used in houses for such a short period of time back in the day:D but hey you go ahead with a wooden frame to each there own lol, rig fires aint no joke, last I checked people have ALOT of them in there HOMES, all your doing is giving it fuel to burn better and hotter. also with the guy that died there is no way to know the whole story, for all you know he was careless and didn't check or do something before touching it or any other number of various reasons why it happened


I suggest you take some aluminium and go touch 220V, so we get rid of your stupid comments, lol

I'm not sure why you are so adamant against people using wood for frames.  Just let them all burn their houses down which means more hashing for you?  Roll Eyes

It looks cool BeerMan81! But is it better if you arrange these 12 GPUs in 1 column?

U should use an open air kitchen rack, found at any restaurant supply store, these home depot storage racks don't allow any vertical ventilation?? R U crazy?

Should be wire rack, should have 50cm  fans at the end of every rack, and small fans ( 12v 10cm ) in front of every two cards,

These days you can buy chinese aluminum grade rigs that support 12 cards for $30, the restarurant racks that support 500LB are about $60, they will support 4 RIGS at 30 cm each tall, about 50 for each rack elevation, the restaurant racks allow adjustable setting every 4 cm

Power rack with 220v circult, don't use 110v, all power supplys  made in CHINA and come with 220v/110v switch, but the fans ( cmd fans are blowing right left to right on each level ) may be 110 wher you live, and your network switches too may be 110v, this is why its probably better u live in china, russia, or austrailia, only cave-men use 110v

If your using windows your a loser,

Can be build to accommodate from 1 to 28 cards with 15cm between cards
Fan grids are optional just in case u will use them.

Looks good. Would like to see full install. Where will you place MoBo and PSU? And how do you plan to organize the ventilation of the rigs? 36 GPUs is great setup

That's a good idea I was looking at those shelves at home depot yesterday $50 not to bad and your idea for the supports are quick and easy

Thanks! That was just a drop in the bucket! I made a whole post here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2373161.0;all

Here is a pic of the first prototype frame that I built. It was not very sturdy. The two layer setup was designed around the shelves that we have (24x36 in) So, there were constraints. What is key is to consider what  direction the screws need to go in. You can clearly see the placement of the GPUs around the mobo and PSUs. The video is the final version!
