    Project: Framed - 4PC Test System

    Here's something I've wanted to do for a long time. I'm working on a 4 PC system test machine. I will be putting 4 complete computer systems in one case. There will be a complete AMD XP and X2 dual core system, also there will be a complete P4 and Intel Core Duo system. Each will have their own Hard Drive, PSU and power button. They will all be able to use one LCD mounted on top. I will just need to adjust the plugs on the back and boot up the system I want to use. Obviously no normal case can hold this many parts so I will be using an organizer I recently bought.
    Here's kinda what it'll look like



    First I have to cut these off:

    I will have all systems connected to KVM switch sharing the LCD, keyboard, and mouse.

    So begins the fun!



    That was easy



    And they're off!



    Then comes the plexi fitting.





    There's one side. I attached it with rivets.





    I'll wait to attach the other side till later. I first need to mount the components on plexi "drawers" and slide them in. At the end I will attach the other side panel with screws.

    Thanks

    I found this old topper to my Mother-Bored PC to help with my intake.



    I slid it into the bottom and since cold air settles on the bottom it'll be a primo place to have air sucked up and in.

    Nope, they're separate systems.

    Here's the part list:

    I'm using the Athlon 64 X2 BE-2300 which runs at 1.9GHz and uses only 45 Watts and not the normal 65 watts. The motherboard is AM2 and AM2+ compatible.

    I don't have the dual Core Intel system yet.

    For AMD single core, I think I have the 2800+, but I'll have to check

    The Intel single core will be a Pentium 4 running at 1.7GHz

    All the computers will have their own power supplies, DVD drives, hard drives (Windows XP Pro) and 1 Gig of memory. As of now I will be using onboard video and sound, but that might change later. On Monday or Tuesday I'm going to Lowes to have the real thick plexi cut out for me for each of the landings.

    Are all the computers going into custom enclosures built into this unit, or are they going to be in seperate cases, just collected on this frame?

    They're all going in together not cased. They'll be each sitting on plexi landings, one above the other within a few inches apart.
