6 PC Render Farm In One Clear Case

Normally case mods are all show and no go, but [Fredrik Perman] and [Michael Stabile] took their old render farm and made it a working showcase for the front lobby. This is a perfect combination of function, beauty, and practicality. It is a great conversation piece, allows easy working access, and provides a tremendous space savings in one sweet looking wall-mounted case. The frame is aluminum, the back consists of sheets of polished diamond plate, with a clear acrylic sheet for a cover. The case sides are left open to allow the blue LED fans to circulate air. Cooling a render farm crammed in a closet can be quite difficult, but isn’t a problem with this open design. This build is also much prettier and maybe more manageable than the setup in ExtremeTech’s Build Your Own Render Farm article.

There are a few more pictures after the break.

  1. with power like that, why don’t you have a hi-def or plasma wide screen? I mean sure it’s cool an all but even a 21″ monitor wouldn’t quite cut it, you need at least a 60″ screen to balance the whole system. get yourself a wireless keyboard and mouse, surround sound system and you can do all the graphics, gaming and movie watching you want to, an probably all at the same time without taxing your resources. I would personally prefer an AI to run the house for me and run my iron man suite,Amp it up, jarvis!

  2. I want to know why they didn’t include at least one high-end graphics card if they’re using this all for rendering. I can see if they were using this for FAH, but wouldn’t it make sense to toss in a couple of video cards per to help with the video rendering?

  3. Javis – your an idiot. Its a Renderfarm
    Underdog – ditto.

    No matter how good a job somebody does on something, some moron thinks they know better and end up looking stupid by posting comments like those. Its a Renderfarm in their front lobby, most likey somebody in the renderfarm service, or CAD/CGI industry. I am sure they don’t want to watch HD movies or play games in front of their customers.
