We are proud to share with the public our custom Antminer S7 / S9 rackmount enclosure.  This 6U shelf is designed to house 3 Antminer bitcoin miners with bitmain power supplies.  This allows those running in traditional datacenter environments to effectively host Antminers while maintaining hot / cold air containment.

We are currently only offering bulk orders in multiples of 24, 32, and 40 units.  If someone wants to arrange a group buy i have no problem with that, we just are not in a good position now to offer these at less then pallet sized orders.

Please place any orders through our site here:
http://www.miningrigs.net/?product=antminer-s7-s9-rackmount-self

Questions? Contact:
sales@miningrigs.net

Please assume a 30-45 day lead time on orders of these shelves.

Nice looking package, >35 some-odd TH/s per shelf with s9's, what's not to like?
Except the prices... Ouch!
Pretty sure I could have Bud Industries or other enclosure maker do a run for quite a bit less...

Edit: looking again at prices, you show $3,600.00–$5,600.00, I now take it that is pricing for bulk quan and not each?

The bottommost picture, with 20 racks in the perspective view, reminds me of strikingly similar interior photographs from some bankrupt datacenter facility financed with securities fraud. The pictures I've seen were much less uniform with the contents of their racks, meaning that racks were filled with a variety of equipment, but only 1/3 to 1/2 of the each rack was filled. I also remember that yellow circle with the pipe pointing down in the far view. Is this type of the arrangement some industry standard for the datacenter equipment?

I can't recall the company name. Maybe someone here saw it too and could refresh my memory?

FWIW Google Images only came up with that one.
The yellow thing looks like a retractable power cord with an outlet box on the end of it. Nice touch vs having plugs here and there in that aisle.

We engineered the shelves ourselves for this deployment.  The last picture is one of eight cold aisle rows that will be loaded with S9s by the time we're done. 

I get this is bitcointalk and scammers are rampant but we've been selling GPU cases for going on 3 years now and i wanted to offer these more out of courtesy to the community.  Yes, they are a little price but they're made in the USA, are powder coated, and function extremely well.

These should also work for Bitmain's next generation of miners as well since they are pretty set on their form factor now.

And lets be honest, the price of the shelf breaks down to 2.5% of the investment of the miners (not including power supplies...)

Besides, who wouldn't want to put 21 S9s in a rack!?!?!  Grin

Yaeh, money laundering through terribly overpriced network installations is still the thing. It used to be done mostly by reshipping unused obsolete (or nearly obsolete) Cisco equipment with the original price at the time of the technology introduction. At the low end of price spectrum I remember Cisco color-coded Cat5 (not Cat5e) 1 meter patch cables for approximately $25 each. Nowadays Cisco is actively fighting those dodgy resellers.

They are now transitioning do doing dodgy billing on digital audio-video installations. Some of those examples ultra-neat cabling jobs shown in magazines are in fact not computing installations but A/V installations serving digitized movies locally for residences or production facilities.

I wish I had better memory for people names and faces. But the sales commissions for the people with right connections are awesome, e.g. from 50% to 75% or even 90%.

I'm not trying to begrudge you of your markup. You are free to charge what the market bears. I also understand what were the NRE costs for the ASIC versus NRE effort for your cases. The ultra-neat-freak segment of the custom hardware installation market is such an obvious place for various frauds. Maybe the manufacturers aren't the most interesting, probably the buyers and the salespeople are. Just don't be surprised if some investigative journalist shows up near your production facility.

I do not want to give an address and name and contact info.  Just to find out shipping a set of 24 to 07731.

you want 3600 for a 24 pack   that is 150 each plus shipping

and a 90 day lead time.

So you get to hold my paypal beyond the safe time to put in a claim for no delivery.

I will pass. A 3 to 4 week lead time makes a lot more sense.

But the gear is really good looking I will give you that.

Its not just Paypal security that's wrong here.

Think of MTTR, Mean Time To Repair/Replace in case of any equipment failure. How many screws need to be untied/tied? Is it possible to replace just a single unit without taking offline the whole shelf?

It seriously like anti-engineering as far as cost of operations.

Ok, so I have bad memory for names and faces, but reasonably good one for acronyms. Check out "NEBS Level 3".

I'm going to give just a Wikipedia link for starters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Equipment-Building_System .

Please read that and if interested follow the links. You'll find plenty of examples of no-bullshit ways to rack up electronic equipment meant to be operated continuously. I understand that Bitcoin mine is not the same as telecommunication central office. Anyone reasonably intelligent would be able to decide for themselves which of the telco requirements don't apply to coin mine.

If you are serious i can get a shipping quote from the manufacturer, but i would assume ~$300 to NJ.

Lead time is 4-5 weeks, not sure where you got the 3 months from?  I am not holding any stock so, manufacturer takes 1 weeks for material delivery, 1 week for forming, 1 week for powder coating, 1 week for delivery.  I like to add an extra week on to the estimate just to be safe.

Yes, they are manufactured in bulk and i don't have the time right now to offer them as single units (im still setting up 3mw worth of S9s).  They will come palletized from the manufacturer.  broken down the prices are $140-$150 each.

I just dropped a line to my rep at bitmain, if they're willing to list them through their site for us i'll put the time into setting up a packaging / shipping solution and put some staff on it.  Until then its bulk or bust  Wink

Very gorgeous rackmounts, definitely would love to build a shelf for a garage unit.

OP might want to revise the title of this thread. I assume "Self" should actually be "Shelf"?

LMAO  - you have obviously never managed a large scale mining operation, this mine when fully upgraded will house several thousand S9's.  Now, to put that in perspective, the heat load and CFM requirements are massive.  I can stick a bunch of S9's on a shelf, but the blow back from the hot isle due to positive pressure is a nightmare.  

Remember, every open penetration that does not flow through equipment means additional strain on the CFM capacity from your system.  It also represents a loss of temperature delta between the cold isle and hot isle.  Having lets say, several cubic inches of open space does not seem like much until you multiple that by a thousand.  You are now talking about just having 10 cabs completely open wasting conditioned cold air to hot air.

In addition, the S9's do not screw in to the shelf, they sit on it. The only thing screwed in is the PSU so you can easily reboot the system from the cold isle...  95% of the time its not the PSU we have an issue with.  We have ~ a 70 degree cold isle supply with a 100+ hot isle exhaust and a 30 degree delta.  If you aren't an engineer, and have never worked in a pressurized / or data-center environment you have no idea what you are talking about, this isn't over engineering, its engineering to actually make the system work.

just noticed this, do you want any PSU spaces at all?  We used bitmain PSU's, mostly because we already have a ton of them and the way they draw air from the cold isle is idea.  If your looking for just a shelf to hold the S9 and not the PSU, we could easily do this, it would probably drop the price significant.  Maybe just have a bit of a shelf above to support a standard PSU or a standard server PSU?  You should PM me exactly what you're thinking, its not that hard to modify.

Very nice looking setup - I've seen your GPU miner setups, and I have to say you guys do nice clean builds.  My only issue with this one (and your GPU one as well) is on the power side, but simply because I don't use the Bitmain PSU's and my GPU rigs don't use consumer PSU's - I pretty much just use DSP-2000BB's.  Of course, you have to design to something, and there are so many different PSU's, I really can't fault you for your choice.  Your prices seem reasonable as well - having built my own large scale rigs for both Bitmain and GPU's, I can say that your price point isn't that far off from just raw costs of what my builds are typically running (primarily built with 8020 and acrylic).

If anyone is serious about getting some and wants someone just to roll by and check things out, I'd be happy to assuming Greymatter is open to it, since I'm also located in Phoenix (which is what their website lists as their location).

Id be willing to organize a group buy if I get some interest from the community I have the ability to revive palet deliveries as work and break down and re ship individual units I wouldn't know shipping costs until I had them in hand but I would do it to help get these in the hands of fellow community members interested in small quantity units.

I would love 1 or two of these but I am in the UK and by the time I have had them delivered here it we are talking about 200$ delivery costs,

I would ask for a copy of the plans so I could ask about in the UK about having some made up for me but I am sure I would be pissing in the wind.

Kind regards
Alex
