Hey Guys;

Am planning to shift my three mining rigs (3 Aluminum cases) into one wooden shelf (Spurce Pine Wood) to reduce space occupancy and make maintenance more manageable. But I'm concerned of possible fire breaking out. Any suggestions?

Regards;

 I don't mine right now but I placed my Asicminer tubes on an old wooden coffee table and wasn't feeling to safe about it so I just set some spare ceramic tiles down on top of the wood first.  I believe it provided a pretty good barrier against heat and possible fire.

Wood isn't all THAT easy to set on fire - if your rig is getting even close to hot enough it's going to be DEAD from overheating long before it's likely to be able to set a piece of wood on fire.

Boiling water is 100 degrees c by definition (ignoring minor variance for altitude/pressure and impurities) which is hotter than any GPU or CPU has ever been designed to run at - and those are the HOTTEST spots in a computer of recent design.

 People use wooden tubs to boil stuff in all the time, and have been doing so for MILLENIA.



I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

No I wouldn't worry too much about the wood, to really quell your fears you can buy a fire retardant spray or coating for wood. Peace of mind is sometimes worth the cost.
