Tidying up ARM boards

My office was getting a bit messy so I re-purposed an old PC case and mounted my ARM boards, a switch, and far too many power supplies into it:

It turns out that my Pandaboards and KwikByte Beagleboard clones fit well into a 5 1/4″ floppy drive adapter while keeping the Ethernet and power out the back and storage accessable out the front:

A 6x OMAP3 Gumstix Stagecoach board goes where the motherboard used to:

with a switch down the bottom to keep the cables tidy.

2x PandaBoards, 2x BeagleBoards, a Stagecoach, and far too many twist ties gives 12 cores for a total of 9.76 GHz of processing… not as cool as David’s box, but I like it.
