Hello beowulf mailing list,
How much harm does removing the computer case do? I know computer cases are
designed for the air flow, and without them I was wondering if there will be
heating problems. My air conditioner will be enough for the amount of heat
generated, but will I need circulation fans in the room also?
I created a test cluster of 8 nodes, removing all the cases and mounting
everything onto a wire rack. It works fine with no heat problems. But I am
concerned that once I build the entire 100 node cluster there will be
problems. The book I am reading on HPC does not go into that detail.
I was thinking an air purifier that is always on will slowly circulate the
air when the air conditioner is off.
I just don't have enough room to build this with the computers still in
