LaurV, interesting setup. Thanks.

I've been developing a low-cost, gpu-centric heterogeneous computing system combining several desktops. Some computations create large electricity/heat spikes which I've sought to address economically. Adding more fans and/or liquid cooling creates more of a burden than a solution. Has anyone used piezoelectric fans between gpu's in a multi-gpu rig?

Analogous to the D870 design, I've looked at external gpu boxes. Is anyone using these kinds of rigs? One of my goals is to develop a modular and piecewise upgradeable fault tolerant system ..if one PC blows up the others can still carry on.

Aspects of cloud computing may help with fault tolerance but statements like "There is the problem of legal ownership of the data.."
from Wikipedia do not give me a warm and fuzzy.
