So I will be building this case it will hold 5 cards per rig and will have 3 120mm 250 cfm fans per rig, 6" air ducts with 2 250 cfm air duct boosters to help the airflow inside the ducts! I have made these cases before, for my customers in my thread where they can request their own custom designs. I'm going to make my own case for my future farm with 4 systems with a good air duct system to get rid of all the hot air the cards will make. Also note the model is not done I still have to enclose the video cards otherwise this method would be useless haha. I think it will be 600$ when its all said and done for parts plexi glass and air boosters and ducts. Give me your thoughts!





Here is the thread where I make the cases for anyone that's interested.

I like it but it looks really expensive lol. Plus there's no elevated holder for raised cards.

It will be on my inner metro rack it will be off the ground and what do you mean elevated holder the cards hold in place?

And deslok the reason I can't just do that is because I want all the air the cards produce to go directly outside my window so I don't need so 10 air conditioners cooling 20 cards.

Well i expected something more elegant out of you than my prototype Tongue but with a pair of window fans (top blowing out bottom pulling in) it should allow more rigs in a smaller footprint

I'm saying there's no elevated holder for the gpu's so you can use x16 to x16 extenders or 1x to 16x. By not doing that your limited to how many cards fit directly into the board not how many pcie slots you have.

The cards have always been elevated just updated the pics to show you cards are off the ground not in the board sorry about the misconception.

Here is a better view btw
