A renderblade is a single machine in a render farm, which is dedicated to the rendering of CGI/3d FX. I am rendering frames at, 1920x1080, and to render one frame I can be waiting quite a while. So, what I am doing is building several relatively fast machines to divy up the task a bit...So instead of 1 quad core work station going at it, I have 4-5 machines going at it, cutting my rendering time considerably. (IE, instead of 1 machine doing 300, 5 machines do 60 frames.) This will also allow me to work while my machines are rendering...Thats why I am thinking of going 3U even if it is more of a pain...

Here is the rack I got:



Here is a flowchart:



I think I explain what I am looking for a bit closer on my blog, see my sig if you are interested...

I am almost debating going 4U,getting a 42 rack, and cutting it down to like 30/w casters...I guess what I am asking is, is that a decent build for the price, and am I crazy for doing this? LOL

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it.

What name of Rack!

Look what I picked up yesterday...

The price was right...Wonder how big if a res and pump I would need on the bottom to push water to the top into a rad, then down into a hand full of machines...mmmm.....ideas.

It's still only a com rack so its only 22" or so deep...

lol I am actually completely serious, my new place cannot handle heat that well and WC would be the most efficient way to do this since I can't use an AC unit. I would need a rad with multiple outputs so the loops don't get too hot...wondering if I am better off sucking the water to the top...

Loop:

Res at bottom, pump shooting water up top to rad, rad then splitting to like 3 machines each, then both back into a rad before the res again...

Oh and the diameter of the tubing would have to change around...Or, I will just post this for sale on my schools BB. LOL

Lots of manual labor...Was helping a friend clean out his office because he was moving, and his business partner was about to chunk it in the trash...it has no keys or side panels, and I don't even recognize the connections on the patch panel...thought I would take it and have a look at it, worst case scenario I can throw it in the dumpster or leave it on the corner...

NO DONT DO THAT!! lol i will happily take it off your hands... pm me if it comes to that. but that sounds like a sweet deal. side panels are overrated.... just there to trap heat.
