If you cant find motherboard trays for cheep, just grind off the part of the brass screw that screws into the tray.  Then all you have to do is screw them on the motherboard and glue them to the metal tray.

nice guide but i'll stick to a case. Main reason is it's portable and for 99 dollars I can get a decent case for another 50 bucks. Those 8 dollar pci-e extension cable ain't cheap either. I'll problably think about it when I magically hit the lottery. Good guide tho! 1+

This looks like a perfect weekend project for me.
As the price dips I finally have excuses to take some of my rigs offline.

Suppliers and Source material
The aluminum tubing and connectors were purchased from http://www.brunnerent.com/ - There may be cheaper suppliers but for a no hassle, nice shopping cart order system, this is the pace to go.
The power supply is a Corsair AX1200
The motherboard is a 890AFX-GD70
The riser cables are cablesaurus brand. http://www.cablesaurus.com/


Any other suggestions of motherboards that can run 4+ gpus?

Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3. Needs an Intel CPU so more expensive than some AMD solutions. But in the UK, the logic board is £60 new, and the cheapest CPU (2.6 GHz dual-core Sandybridge thingie) is around £63.

I've got three of these in the shelf rig, each running four GPUs (5x 5830, 3x 5850, 4x 6950, all overclocked).

If the value of the BTC starts to making mining profitable again then my next rig will be another one of these boards.

Also, you may want to look over here (points to this forum, BTW)

...so I give in to the rhythm, the click click clack
I'm too wasted to fight back...

Protip: Do not try using a pneumatic hammer for assembling these. I tried it, and my wrist is going to ache for a week now. Going back to my trusty old shot-filled hammer. This is what I was using:

It kind of worked, but was slow and ineffective. Also it sprayed oil everywhere  Angry

Hi,

how are those cables called that "extend" the PCIe bus (the cables that connect the PCIe slots with the graphics cards).

I didn't know there's such a thing!

cheers,

I googled "pci-e extender" and got this:

everyone seems to swear by Cablesaurus (http://cablesaurus.com/), so I bought a few from them and they work fine.  If you search through the forums there are some cases of cheap PCIe extenders frying/burning up.  Their prices seem fair enough and their shipping is quick.
