Awesome setup Phil -- thanks for posting the pix - learned a few more ideas for my warehouse.

This is the 4 x S9 connected to the solar farm right?


Yes this is,the solar setup.

The fan pulls 1600 cfm.

We finally have temps set.

I think this will boost to 14 x 4 = 56th in the fall.

We are at 51th at the moment.

looking at the size of your barn... you can fill a few more rows of S9s there!

I can only imagine how it's like running on sun power

maybe I should send my gears to you for hosting  Grin

well the power is buysolar the mining gear is mine.

even though we can fit  20 s-9's  and most likely cool them with more fans the array has a power cap.  About 14kwatts for now.

So take 5kwatts away for his home..  we have 9kwatts for gear.   

so s-9's  4 x 1300 = 5.2 kwatts
 1 s-7     1 x 1300 = 1.3 kwatts

total 6.5 kwatts

I will most likley bring my most stable ethcoin setups so 1 more kwatt  that is 7.5 kwatts

Down the road   this is expandable  to 20kwatts  which would be  14-15kwatts for the miners.  To expand he has to pay the power company to upgrade the local transformers and some cables = $$$.      Maybe next summer or the one after.


The solar array is a longterm power source  25 year warranty. 

So heres to hoping mining is here for at least until 2030.

BTC Asics at 16nm like S9 will be probably be around for 1 or 2 more - still good savings already - more hash same power as S7.

For anything GPU, with good progress in 16nm, we should see 480/470s even lower watts for more hash.

Coupled with long term solar strategy like yours, its a miner's dream come true.

You and your missus can surely retire in stlye  Grin

Very nice setup.  im considering to jump on sidehack s7ln.  I have 1 kw of solar running my shed that i dont use daily.. Id like to see how well it can handle running that miner off it.  should keep up no problem and i use sealed lead acid for storage.. Once those die on me tho i will get the grid-tie system as i see that being the way to go forward. I was wondering if your system is grid tie or battery?  also do you know what temp the upper area of that barn is?  Just curious as to how it compares to my setup currently.. very similar:) Also what are you clocking your miners at now and what temps are they running at that speed(s9's).    Thanks in advance ..

 just   did more work on this..  will post more in ½ hour
fan uses 159-160 watts



second fan  notice the s-7.

we will with up with  5 s-9's and 1 s-7

also notice safety rope on the box fan and on the miners.

 parachute cord.  really strong

Looking  nice I really like gable fan's personally they do a good job exhausting hot air.  And depending how much hot air you have you can get some pretty nice high CFM gable fan's.

Also looked like you attached the thermostat to the side.  Comes in nice for it to monitor the air heat and only turn on when needed.  My weather varies on temp in Midwest so I love that feature.

First, how I do my filter/siren killers:



Most of my main Ant colony heat removal. I'm using a 12"  true ventilator blower with flex ducting https://www.globalindustrial.com/p/hvac/fans/blower/portable-ventilation-fan-12-inch-with-16-feet-flexible-ducting to move the heat from the (upstairs) room out to the main production floor.

Gotta say that despite having 18.2kw worth of s7's up there, so far max temps in that area have only hit 85F. Not bad at all.








83 cubic meters/min = 2931.117 CFM
Best thing is that being made for use with ducting CFM does not suffer to much. Cost $190.70 inc shipping.

Is that a big fan blowing toward a stack of miners?
Which model?

No  we simply  will not have enough power to spare.


Back to photos taken today.
before we added that world famous batch 1 s-7 today. Grin Grin



batch 1 s-7 added.
it is shorter and this has sept 2015 firmware  always under-hashed but it can run 6 boards Grin Grin



closer shot


all four are set to freq 600 with decent number and temps  it was 81f in NJ today.  the loft felt like 85f next i will bring temp and temp gun



same as above screen shot but bigger

Gotta love how Bitmain made the extruded cases to be able to lock together in a row or in cubes for easy handling Smiley
On the s7b1, mine has been simple great! It's been OC'd ever since I got it to run at 700MHz and according to Kano holds average of 5.3THs with common Pk of 5.7 to > 6THs. Astounding. I have a b5 running the same. The other s7's seem already near max performance at stock speed and do not take well to OC. Oh well. After I do the Sidehack under-volting/clocking of them won't matter.

After I do the Sidehack under-volting/clocking of them won't matter.

my batch 2 s-7  was a demi-god   rated at freq 575  I ran it at 618  and would do 1 hw every 25 days!  51gh at .248 watts a gh on a plat psu.

truly a good machine.


here is a batch 2 s-9  very good numbers.
 stock clock  freq 600 fans at 90%
I think this one is using optimizer's better dps-2000 breakout board on a dps-1600 psu.

the two batch two are close to the same and pull around 10 amps at 240 volts.
 so right about .1 watt per gh.

I am using 4900watts for the 4 s-9's plus 300 for the two fans = 5200 watts  to get very close to  52th.
I may be under .1watts per gh  due to the use of the evga 1600p2 and the evga 1600 t2 at 240 volts.

Yes this is,the solar setup.

The fan pulls 1600 cfm.

We finally have temps set.

I think this will boost to 14 x 4 = 56th in the fall.

We are at 51th at the moment.

Very nice setup.  im considering to jump on sidehack s7ln.  I have 1 kw of solar running my shed that i dont use daily..

1) okay it is grid tied not battery.

2) it was 81f outside and with two fans it was 85-86f on the loft

3) all four miners are freq 600 all are in the 60-63c pcbs--- 89-93 chip

4 s-9's are doing about 51th at kano we are pulling about 21-22 amps of 240 volt or 5040-5280 watts  plus add in the two fans at 300 watts so 5500 watts and the s-7 is doing another 1300 watts

 so 6800 watts for 56th = .121 watts  a gh with s-7 and fans
and 5500 watts for 51th = .107 watts a gh with only s-9s and fans

I realize the fans are 300 watts and if we wanted a 'perfect'  setup  6x s-9s with  all platinum dps-2500cb psus would work best.

but those psus are not cheap.  I think we are doing okay with this setup.

I need a hot day to know if we are really good.

I also  think a :

  __
 l    l  made of furnace board   over the miners  and the two fans  would cool better and cut sound down.


maybe this product
