by the way, what is the is minimum and what is the ideal distance between the GPUs for best cooling. I am thinking around 4 to 5cm..

And do I ONLY need to drill a hole and the screw should be able to screw itself in or should I buy a proper screw tapper ?

What is the consensus on card orientation - horizontal vs vertical?

I haven't been able to find a good discussion that comes to any conclusion.  I get that most GPU fans suck air in and push it across the fins over processor and out the back through the mount plate evtns (where the DVI plug is) but this setup is for a sealed case.  In this traditional setup, having the cards vertical an allowing the heat to rise up and out may be a benefit.

It seems we upset the normal flow when we put an additional fan blowing between the cards, so does this negate the card placement? has anyone has better results horizontal or vertical?

Thanks for the directions.

So, I used your sizes (a bit modified) and I even used Brunner ...the supplier you linked to. What I did differently was give them the sizes I needed and they cut it for me...only .69 cents a cut.

I also decided to use a regular case for the bottom..was just easier to fit everything in and comes with power buttons and all..only cost me $39 (X-Dreamer3) ...As such, I had to make it higher...but those numbers above allowed me to figure out the height for the cards.

A problem with my way was...it's now two separate pieces and difficult (but not impossible) to move.

Here's what it looks like:

Here's my rig, 1x6970, 2x6950 and 1x7970 hashing at 2.1MH/s. I ve made it from iron parts and not alluminium and i use 2 psu's, one bronze for mobo and 2x6950 and the other is silver for 7970 and 6970. The dimensions are 25cm longer so it can fit the 2 psu.

Thanks for this wonderful guide, temperatures dropped 5 degrees celcious after 'moving' from a plastic crate to this. Cheesy

check images below:

in the last image you can see the green and black wire jumpers in order to connect the 2 psu together and power on at the same time with button press.

Finally built my first. Used a hacksaw and edges came out a little uneven but it still gets the job done Smiley

Thanks OP!

This looks pretty exact: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-48-in-x-3-4-in-x-1-16-in-Aluminum-Square-Tube-40630/202183563

The corner connectors though.... not sure

Brunner ships super fast even though the shipping/handling is a bit high (it was top notch though). I believe the cheapest shipping got everything to me in 2 days and the order processed the same day as ordering.

In the future though, I'd just grab the 4 ft tubings since the UPS guy had some fun getting the 8 foot ones into my apartment Smiley
