I stumbled across this site where a guy explains his homemade linux cluster a bit, and started thinking about doing the same type of setup for small C4D farm I can set in the corner of the office. I pieced together a few parts on newegg, and it looks like it would run $1400 for every 20 cores (5 x quad core) with 8 gigs of ram per board. 5 G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT Item #: N82E16820231422 Return Policy: Memory Standard Return Policy $249.95 5 Athena Power AP-MFATX22 220W Mini ITX / Micro FLEX ATX / ATX12V Active PFC Power Supply for many HP Slimline System Upgrades/Replacement Item #: N82E16817338045 Return Policy: Standard Return Policy -$10.00 Instant $234.95 $184.95 5 SAMSUNG Spinpoint M Series HM160HI 160GB 5400 RPM 2.5" SATA 1.5Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive Item #: N82E16822152093 Return Policy: Standard Return Policy -$15.00 Instant $249.95 $174.95 5 Giada MI-R880G-01 AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard Item #: N82E16813176005 Return Policy: Standard Return Policy -$25.00 Instant $524.95 $399.95 5 AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX630WFK42GM Item #: N82E16819103932 Return Policy: CPU Replacement Only Return Policy $399.95 Another thought is going 6 core on all of these, but I don't think you can put a 6 core in a micro ITX board. The case that the guy used is from Ikea for only $35... Needless to say, I am extremely tempted...... Has anyone else done something like this? See anything wrong with the setup? Know of a better method? I know I would need a network switch, cables, etc... The main goal here is to have a single unit (preferably portable), low power consumption, low noise, and a clean setup. I don't want a bunch of machines stacked up on top of eachother.
