The cards run hot though. Im concerned that Ill break something and have to pay for it so I guess ill give this one a slip. :/

You should be concerned, as that's a very likely scenario. Even if you are experienced with safely configuring GPU mining machines, you don't know how robust the electrical service is for the lab. Don't assume they designed it for handling a several hundred percent increase in average power draw for hours on end.

GPU mining won't even make you that much any more. Even completely disregarding the ethical problems, the risk is too high for the return.

Wasn't there a news story about some guy who got caught running a miner on his company's server farm a couple months ago? He got in pretty big trouble as soon as they realized what was going on - this seems like the sort of thing you could get away with on a small scale, but eventually someone would catch on - and the last thing you need is to get kicked out of school halfway after spending thousands on an education. Just not worth it.

Oh hey, I also forgot how all the computer "labs" would turn into industrial sized office heating rooms!

Hi folks, posting this here because I dont have rights to post in other sections yet.

Basically, I am a university student and I noticed that at our university all of the design labs remain powered on and open during nighttime/weekends. Ive done the math and I've come to the conclusion that I can get around 100Gh/sec should I utilize all of the pcs in our one lab from 10pm till 6am (When they are empty)

Last night I had cgminer running on 10 of the pcs there and got to about 5gh/sec and this morning at around 6am I went to shut them all down just in time before class starts.

I obviously have permission to *use* the pcs as I am a student at the university, but do you guys think its wrong of me to make use of these powerful design pcs even though they are usually on straight throughout the month including weekends in the afterhours? Am I costing the university a lot of money doing this?

At the moment im doing pooled mining @ deepbit.net.

It's certainly gray area. However it will not get unnoticed. So you better have a good excuse for why you're running on all those computers. In principle you could disguise your activity within custom software so it would look like a science project. But be aware that this then is criminal intent and fraud the least. Universities support science not profit. If somebody finds out you're exiled.
