Hi there, I’m looking for a particular solution. I searched, but similar question was asked in '15 without final answer…
I’d want to mount a TR3990x together with couple of nVidia 3090s into a rack! Either in a case, or case that can be but on a tray, but ideally takes <6u space…
Now, one of the demands is for us to use aircooling (We had some issues with AIO’s for TR on workstations, so we do not dare to put that into rack… Noctua 14’s seem to be the only thing that’ll sufficiently cool TR under load, but it’s just a bit too tall for 4U chassis.
Our supplier suggested using Fara R1 + rack tray. I pushed back, since i have that case, but two 3 slot GPU’s will boil in there… Also no way we’re squeezing 1200w+ power supply in there…
Are there 5U cases available “from the shelf”? Also i’m from Europe… I have found some US custom casemakers, but due to company policies getting that would be PITA… Getting something from within EU is possible though.
So far best bets seem to be
- Lian Li PC-V750WX (sadly EOL, but is great since it has 10 PCIe slots…)
- InterTech 9008 (also EOL)
- Chenbro sr209/sr105/sr107 (seem like best bet right now, but if possible i’d avoid HDD backplanes we don’t need and prefer pci slot more…)
Have i missed something obvious?
