Repurposing Antminer

In the process of converting an Antminer to a portable folding rig.
I bought a working Antminer D3 (which is no longer profitable), off the second hand market for $50 USD ($47 shipping included).
I am planning on gutting the hardware, and reselling the boards for peanuts, hoping to recover some of the price of the rather expensive $50 casing (+ 2 fans). And just use the casing to create a portable GPU folding rig; with 2 to 3 GPUs.
The Antminer hardware is incompatible with Folding, but the casing can be used to house a few graphics cards, and a NUC motherboard.
So that's my next phase; and it should be an interesting project!

In case you're willing to make more, eBay sells the shells starting from about $15, shipping included!
