Thanks Smile

Please let me know if you have any questions about how I put the cluster together. I'm currently working on benchmarking it against other ARM boards.

Looking forward on your benchmarking

This looks nice.... I'm capable of building it all, just not making the case, and I can't find anywhere to buy a barebones Pine64 cluster case. Are these for sale anywhere, or any other options?

The cluster case is really easy to make - just upload my plans to any one of hundreds of websites that do laser cutting, and they can post you the cut pieces. If you Google, there is bound to be a company local to you that can do it?

Hope that helps

Excellent article Nick... and I also love the case. I'll bet that would be one very low-power (consumption) little server, yet have plenty of grunt when it is needed... 

One quick question... onboard microphone (from the comparison table)? I don't think the pine64 has one... (I tried yelling at it and it did nothing! Tongue )... I think you might have been thinking of the fourth pin on the headphones jack... as it is a four-pole headphones+mic combo jack.

Thanks! Yes, only 19W at 100% load, for FIVE A64+ boards, the network switch *and* the USB hub!!

You're right, I meant the microphone pin built-in to the headphone socket. I'll update the table so it is clearer.
