I think it was because of the stacking system they designed, which I think is quite ingenious for cooling purposes. I realized early on I needed some pincers, unfortunately I didn't have any at the time, so it made for a pretty frustrating experience for mee too Tongue

Anyway, Darklore, add another 2 units for Romania (for a total of 6) - Thorvald mentioned he got 2 units too earlier this week.

Do you know where I can read more about their ingenious stacking system?

No idea, I just remember Yifu or Zhang posting at some point about how the casing is designed to be part of the heatsink. And I noticed how well the units clamp down on each other if you stack them. It was obviously intended that way - when you stack several units on top of each other, the outer casing of the stack becomes one giant heatsink.

This is correct, the "bolt" exclusion from top of one unit's case fit directly into the "socket" of another unit's bottom plate.

How many units high can you safely stack?

Excellent. That will make for one very practical setup - just stack all your units on top of each other. There might be minor differences in temps as the one at the bottom will draw in relatively cooler air, but the differences should be minor.

By the way BitSyncom, I must say I like the case design and appreciate the fact that it's solid aluminium - it is very sexy in an raw industrial design sort of way Smiley

Now excuse me while I go and rub my hands all over it...

In pictures from their warehouse with units being prepared for shipping they've shown stacks 6 units high. But if you have a solid base that's not wobbly I guess you can probably stack even more... It all depends on the weight the bottom unit can support. I think Yifu or Zhang know the real numbers here.

ewww... don't do it! the oils from your dirty hands will destroy the heat dissipation properties of that lovely aluminium.

I recommend 5 per stack.

I will disinfect it, and afterwards burn candles and incense to cleanse the area of my unworthy presence. All hail Lord Avalon who bringeth the hashing goodness. lool

No Sir I shall not. Now try to imagine how many Avalons 25K BTC could buy.
