search for the sidehack s7 hacking thread. You however need to buy some microchip programmer dongle. So try the tubes first and let us know if it makes a difference.

I like the insulated duct idea but will the whole S7 fit inside it? Also is it a fire hazard if its inside and gets too hot? Let us know how it goes OP, and please update with pictures. Thank you.

Can't you just cut the duct into 2 pieces and attach to each end? Putting the miner instead could cause a large short since it looks like that material might conduct, or it might go on fire.

yes he can do that

out<<< Miner--Pcie----Miner <<<<in
___________     ____________

Above would be fully cut tube  1 miner

he may find  two tubes work     first tube  3 feet       second tube 6 feet   both tubes go  over the miner  up to the pcie wires.

I have done all those methods  along with an small down clock of freq  and dropping fans to 40 or 50 %

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

So, I've performed ducting and noise reduction is pretty good
Firstly, I want to mention, that my tube is different from what Philipima1957 advised me. Its' isolating layer is thin (actually I expected it would be twice or triple thicker - 2.5cm), so tube itself didn't reduce noise much, but I covered it with 3 blankets and then it was a significant noise reduction, so now I'm in the room next to miner and I don't hear it at all, working on 100% Smiley

I placed miner and PSU fully inside the duct, cut a small hole in it for PSU wire
Pointed out of the duct into the window, so it is pulling air from room into the window (I've done visa-versa at first, but is was not a good idea)
https://s32.postimg.org/5v2xea4xx/tube.jpg
Not very esthetic, but effective Smiley

Now I run it at 700mhz freq and customized fan speed and temp results seems to be normal (as I was told by seller - 62-68d.cent. is ok)
https://s31.postimg.org/3p8kwau57/stats.png

It occupied one room but I don't use that room at all) Local temp in my apartment is ok, as it should be at summer, miner doesn't affect it now, and noise is not heard almost at all.

Question is - is 62-68 temp ok? Is that bad or not to run it on 100% in the duct?

The highest i've had my s7s is 70 temp, and when that happens I lower frequency down to 600-650 and leave the fan at 100% and it brings it down to 64-67. My miners stay around 60-67 all day, but when it sometimes reaches high 60's i will open the door that the miners are in and it usually drops it down to 62-64. I've had the miners for about 3 weeks now and no problems.

edit: saw your second picture, make sure to add a back up pool just in case the primary pool server goes down.

Thanks!
So my temps are ok, that's good
Yes, I'll add a back up pool, thanks for mentioning

Why not just put both tubes outside?

Wonder what your neighbours will think when they see that.

My main farm area with 16 s7's in it in summer runs 85-95F ambient and the miners routinely have run at 70-75C running full speed 24x7x365. Zero problems and they batch-1's through batch 16's.
