I have some thoughts on making mining cases for people's rigs and was just wondering on what the community had to say. I'm pretty open to any ideas so I'll take any advice you have. I have experience in carpentry and machining, so I was thinking about making some cases to be sold in the community. I was just wondering what materials people would be interested in, as well as size. I've made a few for myself that have been used for mining, out of wood mainly, but was just wondering what others would like. Is there actually any interest in purchasing pre-made mining cases. Also, I would most probably ship them disassembled and include assembly instructions. Lastly, how much would consumers actually pay for a product like this and would the demand be high? If you have any thoughts or concerns, or would be interested in a case, please reply.
If you could make some self-assembly kits that would somewhat resemble those frames made by that guy in the stickied thread in the hardware section, [eta this one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=29729.0
], I'd definitely be up for buying two or three. I'd probably only stretch to around 50 USD each though, and that would have to include shipping to the UK so I don't know if it'd be worth your while.
Basically what I actually need is something to hold up the graphics cards when they're all on PCIe-x16 extender cables. At the moment my rigs have no case or frame AT ALL, I'm just plugging two cards straight into the mobo [which is lying flat on a table], and two more are on extenders but perched somewhat precariously on top of the first two. It's all rather non-ideal.
