Let there be wind!  Below are the two main fan's being used for pushing air.  I put them where they are aimed pretty much in the middle of each shelving unit.  Together there should be over 15K CFM when on high together.

Looking twords miners:

overkill? Roll Eyes unless you hare filling up the shelves or you got very high temps?!?!

another, better thread imo, should have been ''miners under heat stress''
with tests at 26c, 28c,...... 36c, 38c..... inlet air temps or simplified to 25, 30, 35, 40

Yes all shelves will be filled.  Except one should be empty and have 110 an 240 for future expansion.  Currently just testing with a few to see if I like how it's working.  If you read page two it says this...... and it also goes into details and tells every miner going out.....

I have one exhaust hooked to temperature, looking into trying that with all fan's.  If i can't get that to work i will just change the fan's to timer's and turn off some at night.

sounds good!

i'm looking into moving all my miners outside, on a table Grin. got a workshop with longer roof, going ~3meters from the wall....

s3+ and c1 look good at 25c! around 40c!!!

sp10 on slow(1.3th with 1050w) has 6 asics with 113c and 2 at 107c(1 piece)
sp20 on slow(~1.1th with <600w) got 1 asic at 100c and the rest are ok(3*sp20)

Been testing my new area with just the gear in it I showed.  Going to take my time and slowly get rest of it wired.

I had a problem I did not think I would have.  During night with my 3 fans (I still have not put 4th out there) it gets so cold I don't need near what I'm using.  During day it still seems pretty nice in there considering amount of watt's air exhaust currently working good.

So now I am left with spending to much on fans at night .  I either will do a timer on some where at night they kick off and don't run them all.  Or do a more advanced fix where it turns all off at certain temperature and flips on over that temperature.

I have a link for you wait for it.

Summer is what caused my move.  I just could not use AC to cool gear way to expensive.   It will be the first time I have all my gear together since I when I very first started with GPU mining, so that will be nice.

And I owe to move for me noticing one S4 had a fan not working great.   I looked closer after moving and saw one had trouble spinning.  Where I had it I guess I just did not notice it.Oiled it up and helped a tiny bit, but a new fan is on it's way.

Thank you! I appreciate your help as always.  I will look at both of those.

I defiantly need to do one to save some money, I'm all about being efficient with mining.  Turning off fans automatically will be nice.

i'm curious how s4 does with higher temp...

comparing it to s4+ looks to be more aluminium in the s4
                                               slightly less wattage in the s4

the chips in s4+ might be newer and better too, so higher temps might be ok on the asics

s3+ looks perfect for summer, 25c ambient temps and almost 40c reported in webguy

It's stormy week for me today high is less than 70 F. So I won't be able to compare to well to the 80's or so that I expect during summer at some point.

So far they have done great. The only thing is the S4 with broken fan runs about 10 C higher then rest of miner, I did not like it so I underclocked it since hitting high 50's (Higher then I like).  Mid week I should be get the new S4 replacement S4 fan.

I like that mindset.  I find that underclocking has really worked well for me.  My 2 last s-3's are batch 1 they have run 24/7 since july of 2014 0 issues.

Here are some of the electrical gadgets i used to check electricity and wires.

Checking the electricity to see if it's getting the 120 volt's.  All 4 put in so far passed this.


This tool is really nice.  It is a circuit tester, and can tell a lot.  If it's wired wrong this could be a big help.  All 4 so far passed this aswell.

I'm not worried on that it will not be near the temp that had to have been going.    Everything so far has been done as safely as possible.

I have a feeling that they were running at a extreme heat.

Here is most of the 110 related parts, 220 I still need to take pictures of.


You will see outlet boxes, receptacles, screws/bolts, clams for cable on boxes.  And on wire there is the standard 12-2 yellow wire.  Below that i the box is the now rare grey 12-2 before they changed it in the 90's.   Still great wire on the grey biggest difference is if anything it is insulated better, its harder to strip the wires and main cord.

that gray wire was a bitch to strip.  I wired my entire house in the 90's  I had aluminum and switched to copper.  I had a 250 foot roll of it.  I was glad when I ran out of it.  But it was better quality wire.

I did a few 10 gauge 20 amp wired for subwoofers .  10 gauge was also hard to use.

Yea I'm not looking forward to it at all.  I am using yellow first.  But on last few they will be out of that grey wire.  Bought to much for a project once and it's just followed me in parts pile.

The yellow stripped so easily and nice I got spoiled.  But this is last roll of this grey wire so most likely I will never use it again after its gone.

Well another day of testing.   It seem's to work great on most things so far.  Only thing is I think it could do better at pushing the cold air from windows.

So put this fan by window temporary to see what it does.  If it works I should have a fan can reuse from where some miners are now with I'm guessing around twice the CFM


And I will be going with temperature instead of timing on fan's.  There is no need to be wasteful on electricity.  The timer would had been easy plug in and it works.  Most likely I will wire in the temperature control after it's all wired and have all my gear set up.

Wednesday I get a replacement fan for one of my S4's.    So a few day's longer of under clocking being safe.  Figure a few day's profit isn't worth putting through to much heat.

Below is something I would highly recommend if you wire a box.  It is a cable clamp that screws in where you poke the blank out.   With this it allows you to tighten the cord where if there was pressure on cable you don't have the stripped cables inside the reciprocal slipping out of reciprocal screws.


Cheap to buy but can save you from some dangerous issues.

Tomorrow I should get my S4 replacement fan.  I will document putting it in.  I'm hoping just plug in and work but we will see.

After that later in the week will continue the rest of wiring.  4 110's and 1 240 to go.   Almost half way there.

S4 fan replacement is done.  Still not quite 100 percent happy on fan setup.  I most likely will see what changes happen when fans move around.
