Cooler Master's Engineers Build 5-in-1 System

Cooler Master's engineers put themselves to the test by building a 5-in-1 system that has to be a first of its kind in the industry. Today, they are proud to announce that with a single Real Power M1000W they were able to power up 5 full mini-itx systems in a closed ATCS 840 chassis. A full tour and demonstration will be available in Cooler Master's private booth during CeBIT!

   
    System Highlights:
  • 53GHz in one ATCS 840 chassis
  • 5 full systems in one ATCS 840 chassis
  • 5 x Intel Core 2 Q9400s (20 x single cores)
  • 2GB RAM per system (10GB in total)
  • ATCS 840 x 1
  • Real Power M1000W x 1
  • 6 x 12v+ rails each fully utilized (1 for each system and 1 for the 5 x ODD plus 5 x HDD)
  • 3 x 200mm fans plus 1 x 120mm fan
  • 5 x water pumps with 1 radiator
  • After 5 continuous hours of full load - 66 degree Celsius on hottest core, 30 degree Celsius ambient temperature, chipset 38 degree Celsius


Now they just need to add a tricked out matrix monitor array and the cool factor will be complete

Allllmost a super computer... but it's still just 5 seperate PCs in 1 box. Someone needs to find a way to run 1 Microsoft installation off 5 PCs. Then everyone will be making their own super computers :-D

Worth noting: This box is using Intels low power (65W) quad core Q9400s series processors. These are aimed at the mini-itx boards in intels "Executive" desktop line like the Intel Desktop Board DQ45EK.
