[Beowulf] 96 cores in silent and small enclosure

In this case we have large "home made" heat sinks, I'll put up more
pictures when I get the time. You can check other designs at




www.renget.se/gallery.html




In contrast to our "Second cluster" on that site, which is completely
fan less, this has two large fans. By using the fans one can get
adequate cooling in a smaller box (than what would be possible without
fans).




When I get the time (when?) I intend to do combined cfd/heat flow
simulations of our designs (have a PhD in numerical analysis).




Eventually we hope to market this.




Regards,




/jon
