Another one tries to build a Server
Hello Everyone,

after playing around with my little oclHashcat Box for a while now, I've considered to build a Box thats a little bit more powerful (The one I use right now is equipped with an Athlon II X4, a R9 270 Dual-X and a HD5850 Toxic). As this would be a Budget Build any Suggestions for alternative Components would be highly appreciated.

Here is the Setup that I had in Mind based on what I've read so far:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4440
Board: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SOC
RAM: Corsair XMS3 16GB DDR3-1600
PSU: Enermax Platimax 1500W
Case: Corsair Obsidian 750D
SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 500GB
GPUs: 4x XFX R9 280X Dual Fan Black
Additional FANs: 2x Corsair Air Series AF140

My main Concern is the Heat of the GPUs and if the Cooling/Airstream will be sufficient while they're stacked so close together. Or should I build a Custom Case with PCIe Risercards and leave more Space between the Cards?

Thanks in Advance!
