I think I was supposed to post this pictures earlier and I forgot...


or



These designs seem the best to be able to keep all ports on the same side (I/O) while attempting to keep the smallest footprint (rectangle is the approximate size of a hyper 212 and the line is the motherboard)

Awesome, welcome!

I know the primary point is to heat your basement with a minimal hardware investment cost, but........

A 400 square foot room, about a 20x20foot living room, needs about 24,000BTUs (7000 watts) to raise the room temp 50°F over outside temperatures with average insulation.

As pointed out above (and from personal experience) it's going to take *a lot* of power to get the heating you desire. The theoretical 7000 watts described above would require roughly 30 of the 771 2P rigs you're looking at utilizing. If you can get the 2P's to fold as one client in a cluster, they'll output very nice PPD, but if not, that's "only" ~600,000 PPD, or what *one* GTX 980 would come close to outputting under ideal conditions, at a fraction of the wattage. 7000 watts is an ENORMOUS electric bill; you might as well make the PPD work for you if you're going to make that kind of rig/investment.

My electricity bill won't change at all since I'm already heating the house entirely by electricity.

I understand what you guys are all trying to tell me, I will be building this rig slowly, bit by bit. This is just a project for fun. If I end up building a ton of c2d computers with a ppd of 7.5k each, that's fine. I prefer re purposing old hardware than to buy new.

If I total PPD is 75k that's fine by me. This project is really only for fun, even if my ppd was zero. I rather recycle older computers.

Got my first pieces of hardware, got an MSI mATX motherboard, E6750 and 8GB of DDR3 (2x 4GB).

With this, once we get settled down, I'll be able to start planning the layout of this beast.

First 10:
1- E6750, MSI G41m-p26

I've built a fair amount of BTC/LTC/F@H rigs in my day. I'd recommend using cheap 20-inch box fans to cool the rigs.

Yep, mining for LiteCoin (GPU-based).

I will only have 10-20 cpu's most likely, unless something magical happens and I can put a video card on each setup to fold.

I like the idea of those box fans, but they're just too loud for my setup. I will most likely be using a bunch of 140mm fans, one for each motherboard basically.
