Sorry to report that I'll be going down for a few days while I'm out of town. I'll be back up next weekend.

My Octo-gpu box is build on a techstation minus one of the corner legs. 2 650w psu's on top, 4 gx2's and 4 120mm fans mounted to push/pull right over the cards. Had to remove the one corner leg because the techstation like most cases today is built with 7 expansion slots.... I could have trimmed/removed the grille on the back of the last gx2 but it was easier to make the station into a tripod :)

I'm soon to be fully upgraded and should be able to push out more PPD but soon will need some deals on better video cards :)

Nice setup!, having it open like that must be nice for allot of reasons, it seems like I have the case lid off more than its on so that would be perfect.. the noise and heat are killing me tho.. Ive been thinking of making kinda a insulated phone booth looking thing with a insulated steel house door, and one rack inside that on a raised floor for forced air.. so I can have lots of crazy airflow and keep the house quiet at the same time. at first I was thinking of putting it down in the basement, but now im thinking of pouring a cement base and having it in the yard. so it would kinda look like a out-house :) or I could disguise it as one and no one would want to look inside ;)

If I keep the folding farm small enough then I would really like to upgrade to another lian-li case, maybe the P80 and water cooling just for quiet... but since the case wont help me hit my folding goal ill hold off for now.

What about using a lateral file cabinet and duct air conditioning into the cabinet?
or
a 4 drawer legal file cabinet with the air conditioner built in and ducting to the outdoors?

Um, quad-GPU rig #5 is up and running.

Keep the pressure on, as it's helping both our teams.

Looks like Gav has a folding promotion coming up this Tuesday.

Now looks to be a great time to start folding if you have been sitting on the fence. If you have stopped, time to git er done!!!
