Hi all, i have 2 S3s running and they are a perfect noise level.
How much louder would an S4 be? I hear they are loud but i can't find anything comparing them to an S3.
I might get 2 of them and want to make sure i don't spend money on something i can't run!

Thanks guys!

I had 3x S3 running under my desk in my room and coild happily sleep with then running. I boight an S4 with the intention of incresing my hashing power but it was like a jet engine. Had to keep it in the adjacent room and it was still louder than the S3's

Try and go for S7LN models or underclocked S7's and change the fan speed to balance noise and cooling. Thats the step i took and worked great.

that's what i was worrying about. :/ Maybe a fan replacement? Or would they overheat.. I was considering pulling them out of their enclosures and putting a custom fan thing.

I tried some acoustic ducting attached to the exhausts but that actually increased temps as the fans coildnt push the air through. You could try underclocking it and see if that redecues heat and as a result fan speed. I cant remember if the fan speed had a manual setting on the S4 but if it has try lowering it until you find a balance

The S4 has 5 fans and is super loud. Maybe you can try picking up some newer gear? You will just lose money on that old stuff.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.
