I am thinking of building my new server around an Asus Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard. But it's a big dual Xeon motherboard with four PCIe 3.0 slots which I plan to eventually fill up.
I will need a case that will accept an SSI EEB sized motherboard without the need for me to cut giant holes just to fit the motherboard inside.
I prefer big slow fans, like what you'd find in the Cooler Master HAF series cases (much bigger than the holes in the Mountain Mods cases), but I might have radiators in there too...
Basically, I think I need a wind-tunnel's worth of airflow and/or water loops for two CPU slots and up to four GPU cards (with as many as eight GPU chips total). The case, PSU, and cooling solution(s) must be able to support folding and graphic rendering which will be done by CPU cores AND
the GPUs. It's gonna be a hot one. I would rather live in my house with no clothing on than find a slagged server one day.
Just to make it interesting, I would like to use a floor-standing case and not a rack.
I need your advice and big case ideas.
