Pretty happy with the way these things turned out. I'm still waiting on a new mobo to fill the top rack.

The cases were built buy a great guy over at hard forum. He's more than happy to make any custom modifications you may need and is constantly improving his design based on customer feed back.

At $120 a pop I couldn't be happier. The only other custom built cases I found like this were $300+. Even the build it yourself guide on this forum runs $100 and takes up an afternoon to build. (and with my build patience would come out lopsided looking like poo lol)

^^^ That is a very nice frame for a mining rig. And the prices are quite reasonable. About the only "flaw" I see is that you attach the GPUs with zip ties, which seems a bit ghetto compared to how slick the rest of the rig is (but yeah, doesn't matter). Thanks for sharing.

Thanks  Grin

Ya he included a thicker bracket for holding the cards than the originals which keeps the cards from falling but still allows them to slide a bit. I used zip ties to keep the cards from sliding.

He contacted me as soon as he saw my pictures for any input. He was disappointed the new design didn't work 100%. The next batch of these cases will have rubber in the clamp and a 3rd screw in the middle Which should eliminate the need for zip ties. Like I said he's a great guy and really wants to make a great product.

My guess is just short of 16kw just by doing a card count and estimate.

 Shocked

Man, that's a crazy dense and clean setup. Is that 5 5850's on each rig? I'd really like a close up


Nice furniture movers on the feet lol

My spreadsheet says around 17Kw but it looks like i over estimated according to my power bill.

Those 5970 really blow the hot air out the 'front' of the card, so will you be mounting these new rigs in a reverse direction then all the others?  so the house fans blow the air from back to front?

All of the hot air on my 5970s blow out the metal end of the card where you plug in the monitor. If you look at the bottom of the rack in the picture above, you can see they are sitting reverse from the rest of the machines. All of the other cards rely on pressure in a normal computer case to help blow the hot air in the right direction so when they are in the open, they don't do what they are supposed to.
