We (me and my brother) have been into silent computing, and clusters,
for quite some time now. We just recently designed and built a unit
equipped with 4 supermicro boards (H8DMT) and 8 cpus. In the actual unit
the cpus are Opterons with 6 cores each, but it would be easy enough to
switch to cpus with 12 cores.

The box are of dimensions 40x42x58 cm, so it is reasonably small. Two
large and silent fans are used to cool the system.
