two level Open test bench. Bottom level for Mobo, top level for addin cards

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking to build something like this:
http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...g-machine.html

The goal is to have a motherboard at the bottom, and using 8 PCI-E ribbons to connect to 8 GPUs, which will be sitting on the top tray.

Is there ready made case parts that I can easily assemble?
Or would anyone wants to make one for me? Will be glad to pay.

My problem is I don't have any tools, so I can't really go to home depot, buy some metals/woods, and start cutting.

Building something like that would be fairly easy.. but shipping would be a combo breaker. Your best off sketching a design and finding someone locally that can make one for you

I do not know how Home Depot works but I guess they would cut c-channels for you just as they would cut timber. You might need to pay a 'service fee' though.

C-channles (eg http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...atalogId=10053) come in like 96'' long.
You have to plan ahead and calculate the lengths (eg 4 pieces of 17'', 12'' and 8'' each. See pic for an estimation) + location of holes to be drilled (green circles. Of course, you need to match the size of holes with pre-selected nuts+bolts).

That looks very doable. What's your budget?

Send me a PM.
