Cool enclosure project for 6 piece Raspberry Pi2 cluster. via makezine
From Raspberry PI 2 Cluster Case pt1, I drew up a rough sketch with certain goals I set out to. They are,
Able to fit in 6 RPI2 in a small, contained volume.
Has to be stackable.
Able to fit in a power supply and a 8 port network switch for the 6 RPI2.
Able to cool off the cluster with no fan.
Has to be cheap.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Excellent! A server room in a box. I love it!
If you use the car 12v version of the USB power source, you can feed that with a 12v x 7amp hour gel battery and feed that with the wall wart smart charger for those same batteries.
That way your server room has a built in UPS system as well.
I do that with one Pi dedicated as an OwnCloud with global calendar and that has been running now for 6 months without interruption flawlessly despite our horrible power reliability here.
I want to do an internal DNS/Dhcp server next to add to it.
