This is the kind of hardware the Australian Overclockers bring to bare (bear?):

"Elegant simplicity" doesn't seem to apply here. Also, note that the mobo has integrated network and a 16 bit isa slot. Kinda uncommon?

You will find details on how to setup such a farm in this thread.

Looks like a noisy bunch.

Such excellent clearance to the top of the CPU fan too. Must make for some GREAT airflow.

I am currently making some of my folders rack-mount to save space and so I don’t have to move them when I have LAN party’s and loose a day.

The cooling must actually be pretty good I think - the sink is pretty big.. and look how thin the fan is.. 10mm thick I guess - must have pretty small blades and low airflow.

How about a farm of Mini-ITX boards with 1GHz C3 processors? I suppose they'd be pretty weak folders, but they would be quiet and wouldn't require a lot of power. "Monster" wouldn't be quite the right word for a farm of these little buggers.

Hello:

Does anybody know where one can find a list of mATX motherboards that have built-in LAN chips that are *supported in Linux*? I would be particularly interested in Socket A (462) motherboards. I ask because I have had a fairly tough time finding NIC's that work in Linux...it also would have to support the LAN boot! :?

The link above *does* have a link to a "How To" document on setting up a LAN boot in Linux.
