Hi All

...thanks for the suggestions ... some are very interesting ... 

I'd like to clarify a little though ...

I work with Parallel Quantum Solutions and we sell linux cluster to (mostly) 
computational chemists (we're all PhD chemists) our smallest machine is a 4 
cpu two motherboard system with our parallel quantum chemistry code 
installed. It's a great deskside box for a working chemist. We've been using 
this case (in black)


but it's really twice as big as it needs to be ( it does look impresive 
though )

A better size would be somethings like this


This would be plenty big enough for a 2 motherboard system but it's not setup 
that way.

This one is close (thanks Alvin ) but still bigger than it needs to be


I hope that answers the why? question.
I think a small dual mb case like this would be an attractive personal 
parallel code development box too ... and it would be a knockout at the local 
linux users group meeting :-)  I'll let you all know if I come up with 
anything nice.

Thanks again for the helpfull feedback
I'm not really interested in a dual motherboard rackmount case but I have to 
admit that this one suggested by Joachim and Steffen is really cool ... check 
this out :-)
