I've seen people use grow tents to isolate the heat and extract it directly without overly complicated duct work.
the lsv4500 is 4u and fits 7 gpus easily. Just a heads up.Yeah I saw that there are a few rackmount cases on the market but they seem to all be 4U which is not enough for a modern GPU because the power connectors stick out too much. I've seen some that have a hump on the back, but what's the point of calling it 4U at that point if you can't fit it in 4U of space. I originally was going to make mine 5U but messed up measurements and ended up 6U, but it worked out because I don't think I would have been able to mount the PSUs the way I did if I gone 5U.

How does that work, are they held a different way or at an angle? When I tried to put a GTX 1070 in a 4U case the power connector sticks out too much.
Kind of hard to tell from this pic, but the card is flush with where the cover would be, so the connector sticks out. It's about an inch taller than where the L bracket gets screwed in.
Just got my new from china motherboard. Will let you know how it holds up!
how much did u pay? i'm curious to compare against us-market boards of the like in both new and used markets. was it significantly cheater than an ASRock H81 Pro BTC board? your board has an extra pcie slot as an advantage.
i've always wanted to do this but my fear is that the cards can't breathe? they're so close together or is the constant airflow enough? this is great for space-saving but i prefer open-air and spaced out (assuming you have the space).
Yes - the trick here is that the heat is localized to the front of the case and evacuated almost immediately by the 3 fans up front.
Two things have to happen to make this whole deal work - 1) The fans are pushing air out of the front of the case 2) These fans move serious air.
Works great! This is actually build #5.
