This project was a ton of fun, and it proved to not only be very functional and convenient – it instantly sparked an interest by anyone walking though the design studio front entrance. We mounted the computer in the foyer. The server room was conveniently located on the opposite side of the wall. It was a home depot/computer parts puzzle, and a lot of fun! The fans blew all the hot air from the bottom and out the top. All 6 computers ran like a charm.

  1. This is much nicer than the render farm I used to have in my closet. It had a bunch of box fans to keep things cool. Although, it did have the blue lights. Very cool.

  2. I’ve been wanting the budget to make something like this for myself, although I think I would go with stacked motherboards, since I need it to be free standing. For now I get to use the 32 node cluster I built for my University – the network is faster than the PCI bus! Grad students get payed like rap, but at least we get to play with fun toys!
