    Do you have any plans for heat regulation? i.e. will it have some fans on the sides or will the backside stay open?

    @ruhe the back will be open. It shouldn’t get too hot thought tbh, it’s just 4 Pis

    Tbh at first I thought it's a cardbox, but that looks amazing!

    Is it going to be a single cluster or a setup of different hosts?

    I have a habit of building servers in cardboard boxes.

    @starrynights89 a cluster. I’m wondering whether to use kubernetes or just do it “normally” without containerisation

    You're off to a good start - a good collection of stickers is the most important part.. gives you 0.10GHz per every sticker you add. ;)

    Unix stickers have an extra 0.02GHz style bonus for every sticker in a full set.

    Also, that second picture threw me for a loop - without zooming in it looked like a full sized set of shelves with ATX sized mobos.. which, in turn, made me go "those are some bigass stickers in the first picture" xD

    @confusedGuy-sh Not much else to see right now, but I’ll be cutting out holes for the wires tomorrow, if not tonight

    @zacg nice work. You should put spacer screws so that each board is slightly elevated to help with heat circulation.

    I see 4 Raspberry Pi 3 boards deployed as a little server, i++ :3
    Do you plan to cluster them with something like MPI or Kubernetes?

    @LrdShaper they’re on little Velcro pads so there’s maybe half a cm under each

    @Condor I’m gonna try kubernetes because it looks quite cool

    Bit of an update: I’ve got the power cables all wired up. Now just need to do the Ethernet
