Urathear, I would check out those servers and see if there are clues as to how they did it. But I agree with the other people here, it probably isn't technically feasible for us who don't have access to corporate resources.

It would be cool though. It would be like a cluster, but you could skip all those individual cases and power supplies for each board.

you would still most likely need multiple power supplies considering each board will need power...and if you have power connected between multiple boards you'd have to have a huge power supply anyways (like 1200+ watts...which is the price of like 3 750watts :\)
