I have decided to start using my materials to make custom cases for you guys I will customize it to anyone's needs as of now I only have 2 models made anyone who is interested in buying or requesting a custom change the the frame please pm me or post in the thread  Grin I can edit the case to be anything you want add fans put psu in a different spot and change how the video cards are laid out.

Here is the model I have at the moment will add more if this is successful and people are interested!

PLEASE NOTE: The metal bar supporting the cards will not fit cards with a dvi slot at the top so if you plan on putting 5970's in this please let me know so if you plan to order.


Guys for now I am halting on these as they were to hard to produce and were costing me a lot more money then the listed price. Since I have seen bitcoins start to pick back up again I may in the enar future re open this and start making cases out of wood and shipping them to you as kits, but as far as I know this may not happen for a while. Have complete the 2 projects I have started shipped out 1 of the cases to belguim hope Ssoele.be gets his case soon! As for the second client I have I will be shipping his out shortly.

Design CHEAP! (Selling for 110$ If in USA I estimate 10$ to ship):
This model has 1 psu's and whatever the motherboard can hold.



Design 1 (Selling for 180$ If in USA I estimate 20$ to ship):
You can customize this case by choosing to have 1 psu or 2 psu's as well as choosing the max video card limit from 5-7
This model has 2 psu's and 7 cards max!
Dimensions 2' 8" 3/4" x 11" 1/2" x 8" 9/16"









Design 2 (Selling for 190$ If in USA I estimate 20$ to ship):
You can customize this by choosing the max video card limit 5-7
This model has 2 psu's and 7 cards max!
Dimensions 1' 9" 3/4" x 11" 1/2" x 1' 1" 1/16"









Complete projects:

Ssoele.be (350$)

Base:



Finished:





Packing I did:

Added another model, fully enclosed for external exhaust cards so all the air is brought in through the back and exhausted out the front! FOR EXTERNAL EXHAUST CARDS ONLY!!!!!!

Not yet but I have one that will look similar!

Will look like that but will have a plexi glass bottom with motherboard stand offs in it.

Can you make them rackable?

With maybe 2 boards behind each other?

19" wise, 5 * 1.75" high, 100cm deep? Wink

What do you mean by rackable do you mean stable and if you mean stackable it would not be very wise because I don't think that can be stacked without being flimsy. Also are you wanted model 2 or model 1 to be made like that?

Designed to fit in a standard 19-inch rack.

Idk if I can do that I mean 2 motherboards mean twice the gpu's but also is meaning that the gpu's in front of the will exhaust all the air to the new cards unless I figured out a nice way to cool it and having it 100 cm deep is very long it would be easier for me to do half that...

Also it may need to be a 6U instead of a 5U I have ran into a height issue with the cards not leaving enough clearance for the cpu cooler.

Here's what my cooling solution is on the 6U tell me what you think?

Where do you live?

How much to have the first model made and shipped in the USA? Looks badass.

the first design is 100$ for parts and labor. Shipping I think would be 30-40$ for in the US

What about selling it in pieces or partially assembled? Where are you located?

I live in Oregon and I don't charge for labor so 100$ is the price for it labor and making it gives me something to do lol. If you live in Oregon you can come pick it up and shipping won't be really that expensive I would say 30$ at most.

No problem at all. Even in parts I assume you'd have to punch some holes and at least prep the parts. Cases look awesome though I'll keep it in mind. =)

Wel, 100cm is 100cm because ..... these days standard racks are 100cm deep for the computers Wink There is not really a awy to dispute this.

I would also like all 4 power supplies to take air from the front. Actually you must be able to totally hadle this from the front (reset, power buttons, cable plugs) because one CAN NOT stand behind a full rack without getting into a lot of hot air in a hot room Wink

I like the way you put air halfway around.

For shipping, sending half assembled would be better, I agree.

6 HE is a loss of 12 cards / one case per rack. A rack has normally 42 units in height, and 5 x 8 are 40 Wink sadly, 6 x 7 is 42 so that means filling the rack full, havving to deal with where to put the network stuff (no unit free) etc.

I would definitly like 5 units high when possible.

Hot air exchaust may not be so problematic - there can be a LOT of air flowing through. Would have to be tested out. I mean, seriously ,even sucking in the hot air from the cards in front - the back cards get a lot more airflow than cards in most closed normal cases.

* I would ty a version without hot / cold aisle.
* Spread the cards out better. There is no reas ony ou have to stop on the motherboard. You can actually mvoe them out on the other side - raiser cards have a length. Tiere is no reason the cards are over the CPU Wink This kils the CPU cooler argument for 5 HE. ALTERNATIVELY - there is no reason that cards are mounted vertically, but that is problematiic from making. Would requite a custom piece of metal attach them like with a 45 degree turn. It would help, though, with the clearance for the cables Wink
* WIthout aisle you also dont need that much difference between the boards, which creates space.
* You may want to stabilize more. There is no reason in the front for the vertical bar, but one bweeen the boards would be nice. What do you plan to use as base materia lfor the lower plate?

Leaves teh question where to put the 4 power supplies, which is something I am havving a problem with at the moment, too.

I'm guessing you've made something similar for yourself, so:

1.What sort of noise levels do you get? I'm hoping for something that will being the noise level of a 6970/6990 down to bearable levels, and I suppose there's no sound insulation on this so the cooling would have to be significant.

2. I could always glue sound insulation to the outside, but with the gpu's arses hanging in the wind most of the noise would already have exited. Any plans for external exhaust baffles?

3. Any assembly required? Drilling holes etc?

4. postage OS?

Cheers

It will only be as loud as the fans you install are the case itself is 100% silent lol...

Um I don't think you need an exhaust baffle it is not that loud...

Nope will come fully assembled with rubber fan mounts and motherboard stand offs all installed!

I think postage on the first one will be 30$ but for model 2 i think maybe 40-50 due to the bigger size?

Airflow is not really needed the video card pulls air that's next to it. putting hot air into another set of cards is a bad idea because it can't cool down at all if the air is the same temp the gpu is... I'm not trying to get cool air onto the cards I'm trying to keep the hot air from touching the cards in the back.

Installed fans might not be loud, but the 69xx series gpu fans are excruciatingly loud above 50%. It's why I thought  baffles might be ok but I'm not a good enough engineer to make sure that they wouldn't increase back pressure to the point that the fans start heating up again.

Postage only $30 even OS? Usually international postage kills me.
