look at that sweet liquid cooling device  Grin

must be one of the upgrade options  Tongue

so, seriously, what IS that in there for?
To force air through heatsink.

Thats what I was guessin too =), w/ the case panel on, air could only go through the ASIC heatsinks...

Filling that bottle with cold water could slow down heating of the whole box, too.

The best thing would be to add fans at the back and do push/pull and just put in a simple diverter for the air. Of course filling the 4th slot with another module would be ideal.

until its in operation for about 5 hours, the water is now 50C and not cooled, and starts to actually reduce cooling effects to less than without it.

and its for airflow btw, though I would have used other methods to divert air, such as some  panel or fin

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461

the more I look at the avalon case design, the more I do not like, I suspect if I ever get one, it will be ripped apart and running naked on the counter with probably 2 fans per module blowing directly into the heatsink...

what would I do different?

- fully populate the case, don't design a case for 4 boards and then only fill it with 3.

- fully populate the fans, and reverse them, 3 in, 2 out (plus whatever the psu is pushing out) should create positive air pressure inside the case, and you wouldn't have the exhaust from the psu polluting the intake

- use modular PSU - would clean that mess of cables up quite a bit.


I think that would be great improvement, and extremely easy to implement.

couldn't you just turn the fans around to do that?

you could also just change the psu in there.

Exactly. Just buy 3 extra fans, 1000W+ modular PSU, and an extra hashing module... and then you've got Avalon the way it should have been done.

(*and in Avalon's defense, it definitely looks like that was how it was originally planned - I'm very curious to see the 6 module beast they keep hinting at...*)

Or add condensation....... I'd bondo a small angular shunt in there to force the air.... also I'd load that bad boy with some Deltas for fans

I am poor, but i do work for Coin Smiley

I live in Minnesota.  I'd add a thermostatic re-circulating mixer so the input air isn't too cold.

I try to be respectful and informed.

Just confirming I haven't missed some thread— have no US customers (beyond the two special units) yet received their batch 1 order?

Or did you mean that we have to wait until May with this cryptic message in your last letter "May they enjoy the coming delicious crabs." ?

Just give it to us straight... talking in riddles is not everyone's cup of tea. Wink
