Not sure how niche this is, or if perhaps it should be rolled into another thread. Has anyone had success putting their CPUs in a rackmount form factor?
I’ve been thinking about consolidating gear, minimizing my footprint, and making setups more mobile. Rolling, travel safe rack cases seemed to make sense for audio gear. But I realized that there are computer cases for motherboards etc that can also be rack mounted as well.
I can see this being practical for video artists and other creative computing types as well as musicians and sound artists. Does anyone do this? How many U spaces are you taking up? What size mobo are you using? What other accessories or rack units are complimenting your cpu?
Theres plenty of types of these cases, from very bare bones boxes to units with touchscreens built in and little hidden trays that expose keyboards. Are the bells and whistles worth it? Any brands you trust most?
Wisdom and public discussion around this is greatly appreciated!
