Pine64 Cluster economy
#6
Also a silent approach..(have a look at the pictures) I know not everyone has something lying around at home but Fans are also not for free and consume energy.

- So let say you pay 1€ for 2 small heatsinks (and there getting a lot cheaper when you buy a higher number of them)

- Than you need a big one for GPU and CPU  the heatsinks size is limited to L-4cm to W-4cm -
otherwise it would be possible to get a short-circuit (but not tried yet) - I found suitable heatsinks for around 2-3€ on ebay.

- cable tie almost price free

- MX-2 8g for around 5€ and needed for 3 devices something like 1g


......I had not ran a benchmark but installed Mate and than had ran a loop in racked(lisp) for 15min,
and the Pine was never over room temperature (19°).
