    Ai. Workstation Case Design Wish List

    Hey there,

    I'm working on the design for a new Ai. Workstation - 4x NVIDIA GeForce / BIG GB DDR4 RAM etc.

    This is more an Industrial design project than a mod. as we will be producing these in runs of ~1000 etc. But thought this site would be a good place to get a feel for what is possible in these large desktop config.

    Anyone using their rigs for deep learning/ai work?..(after hours maybe And if so, what kind of features would you like to see in this kind of design.

    - Ability to mod?
    - Smart cable management
    - Ability to stack the machines?
    - Aesthetics, Lamborghini or Tesla?....Apple or Thinkstation?
    - Headphone hook / cup holder / gun-rack?
    - More sound deadening
    - Light array to show how the machine/health is doing?

    Any ideas would be great, treating this as a kind of brainstorm I guess. Crazy ideas welcome...sensible also

    Cheers, all

    Humm AI Workstation.....

    In my opinion you should be looking for more of a standard rackmount cases. If you are looking to build AI machine then you are better off doing it that way.
    You need substantial power supply to these 4 nvidia cards. With that in mind you need cooling. Server base cooling would be best here as its cost friendly vs watercooling.
    A good example would be a dell p750 V series models. These enclosures have support for quad cards.

    A good place to start designing this yourself would be supermicro. They have nice enclosures for you to work with. If you absolutely want to stick with desktop machines then you should look at
    7048GR-TR. Its a tower based system with up to 4 pcie slots. Pretty sweet.
    You can get pretty crazy with the design there.

    I hope this helps.

    Send me one of your systems when you finished building one
