I have 2 antminer s5's i would love to have more but the noise is just too loud.  i know a garage is a bad place but i don't have any other place to put them since they are soooo loud. does anyone have any suggestions for sound proofing? i think part of my problem is that the previous home owner cut a hole in the steel door going into the garage for a "cat door". i tried filling it in with liquid foam insulation, but i can still here them. would replacing the door help with the noise? what else could i do to help lower the noise?

my best advice is to change their fans, there are plenty of silent fan, like arctic f12 pwm, you should look at 120mm fan at least with 20-25 DB, they move more air, maybe you can fit some 140mm

like i did it here(this is a g-balde that was using a 90, and i put in a 120mm)

did this already. I have 2 silverstone fhp-141's (140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes) in a push/pull config. cant get my miners below 60c in my second bedroom with AC blasting.

it's because we are in summer, my tests were done in autumn, it make sense, then you need to find another solution, like basement, cellar, don't know if your garage will cut it, otherwise you can add plenty of big fan, like 480mm fan or around that

but if your TAMB is already too high, you can't do much with fan only, you need something that refrigerate

There are lot's of options. If your really lucky you live in a area evaporation cooling works.     

Myself I just have regular AC so I use lots of airflow.   I get lot's of air and pump lot's of air out.   So far it's handled 90F day's at it's peeks.  My latest thing was upgrading the gable fan to get rid of the hot air at roof level.
