Time to get Schwifty Smiley  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ctK1aoWuqY

Ok.  Here is a new contest, brought to you by the good folks at www.cryptominingtalk.com (...well..me).  This contest is funded exclusively by ad revenue (people clicking on ads) and mostly by the amazon referral program, where you can click on the amazon link and then buy your stuff.  The website typically gets a small cut of the purchase, and I decided to give it back to the community.  So if you want to help out, there will be bigger prizes in the future Smiley  Thanks in advance.

I am also giving some prizes away in another thread by Philipma57 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1774597.80;topicseen).  He has given away a lot in diff guessing contests and I wanted to help out a bit.  Feel free to join and participate.

There is a lot of greed in the crypto world, but also a lot of good will.  Part of the fun and attraction of cryptocurrency is the mining part - the building, experimenting, tinkering and just "making it work".  So in the spirit of sharing, I hereby open thy contest.

-You must post a picture of your GPU or ASIC mining rigs, and/or cooling solutions.  It doesnt have to be flashy and well organised - It can be improvised and home made.  Points are given for originality, function, and mostly effort.
-I will decide the winner.  If there is no clear winner (probably wont be, since this is quite subjective), I will choose a number of submissions (probably 5), and choose the winner randomly.
-At the same time, feel free to discuss your rigs with other members, help out others, etc.  If you see unsafe setups, please don't hold back.  Safety is number one in mining.

Unfortunately I have decided to open the contest to everyone, except newbies.  sorry.  To prove that the rig you are posting is indeed yours, you must have some sort of identifier (a sign saying cryptominingtalk contest or your username for example).  Although this isnt mandatory.

Prize for the winner is:  1x USB Riser, one of the latest versions, shipped to you (Canada and USA only).  If you live elsewhere or don't want it, you can choose to receive 0.01btc.  Contest ends on the last day of March.

edit:  If a lot of people post their rigs, I may end the contest earlier than in one month.  I also might do 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place prizes.  Or maybe Most original, Most functional, Most ghetto, etc.

wooo0000 good stuff,this competition is going to be tightttttt.

-Really like those usb fans, thats quite original !

-...Is that...Is that a dishwasher rack for drying dishes ? Smiley

-Rack mount rigs are getting quite popular these days.  Good for you for using blower type gpu's, they exhaust out the back.

-Oh damn GPU's with home-made fans on the heatsink, thats awesome.  I have one card like that.  cooling is so much better.

I've edited the competition info, instead of end of march, I may decide to end it early if we get enough submissions.  I also may do 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place prizes too.  Depends on how many people post their rigs.  Happy mining !

http://www.saterdayvideogames.com/BCTphotos/image1.JPG

some reason it will not show up on here

In that picture you can see on top of that pc a gridseed 5chip orb mining scrypt and a du-1 x11 usb miner

below that is the pc

outside the pc is
r7 270 graphics card on a ribbon riser
Strix rx280 beside that
then r9 380
these are mining zec

to the right of that is 3x futurebit moonlanders mining scrypt
and also 3x gekko science compac sticks (would be 2 more but getting repaired by sidehack) mining sha256

once i can get this rig stable im planning on building a custom box case where i can use only a single home style box fan to cool everything down better then the usb / 12V fans i have going right now but this is all testing

once i get this setup ill be able to work on my burst hdd miner i have it running on my gaming pc but im making a new mobo with linux to see if i can get it running better

Still a work in progress, just started this build this week. Only have 2 out of 10 Rigs in it so far. Cooling is a rear mounted box fan that pulls air through the cabinet. Small fans only there cause my motherboards require them. This is also my first time ever sharing a image of any setup LOL.

Ok, my outdoor rig passed the winter test perfectly, so it seems I may disclose it now...
(all weather condition proof, from -20 to +30 Celsius degree tested, no extra cooling needed)

no insects at all, it seems they stay away from it
(in fact, my area is not insect intensive, mainly flies?)

you could also try to protect from insect by adding the metal netting from bottom
(that material is not really affecting cooling)

My rig is a 24/7 outdoor rig and I have not had any negative experiences with bugs. I assume the fans keep the bugs from crawling into the heat sinks. The rest is very hard to short because of the resistance of the bugs body.

Aries....Well you aren't eligible for the contest Smiley  I'll keep your advertisement on the thread, because it is a very nice rig.  Although I advise people to visite my site if they need help, and to build their own rigs, which is kinda the point of this thread too.

It's not a very unique rig though...Kind of asinine for him to derail the thread with something we've seen 100x over.

Seriously, there is only so many ways you can cram 6+ gpu's into a 4U case...if their model was so great or special he wouldn't be advertising here.

The real problem though, is that he wants $2500 for $1600 worth of last gen gear. What a dick.

Edit: lol I mean 2900-3300 for 1600 worth of gear.

Lets break it down.

Used 4u case: $50/FREE
mobo/cpu/ram combo $60
PSU: $140
8 risers: $50
ethos ssd $40 or a $10 usb.
8x RX 470 $1600

dang just built his rig for less than 2k..

damn son, we've got a winner on the macgyver front...

I think you should dangle everything directly from the ceiling.

the purpose of wall mounting boards and PSUs was to save space, having easy access for troubleshooting, push-pull config.

also notice there is a fan in the right side...on the left side a fan serves as an exhaust out of the window(not in the pic)...it is a push-pull config...

dangling from the ceiling is not easy to access, walls are sturdier, and you will have lighting issues.

true, how about a pile in the middle of the floor?  Wink

save space, half of the room is where i dry clothes and a desktop PC(also a miner) for remote management...and the horizontal alignment for blowing heat out of the windows (push-pull). racks don't provide long horizontal alignment to the window and saving a few bucks from buying racks

planning to build a swamp cooler in the other half of the room too.

Wow a lot of crazy entries........!  Oh yeah I took down the advert of the rack case gpu mount, I agree it wasnt really appropriate.  I mean, he can show it off in the contest if he wants, just not as an overt advert...And yes, building your own will always be cheaper !  Buy parts on sale, buy second hand what is less important warranty wise and ROI will always be better.

Well, usually you have a dehumidifying cooler in a server room. It will make everything worse...You know the dust you blow out of computers? Imagine if it was wet...And your miner was rusty...

Not to mention wet air and high amounts of electricity don't mix.

dubbed "lucky7" & it was won by the highest bidder in my personal telegram miners lounge group





newer revision of it, no cable ties (for the pcie & usb cables)  or any screws (on the risers) were used & the answer is YES, everything is hooked up.



thx OP for holding such contest, like the encouragement of others to build their own rigs using their own original ideas !

p/s: this is NOT an advert & yes i do build & customize rigs for my local community when i'm approached.

Well, usually you have a dehumidifying cooler in a server room. It will make everything worse...You know the dust you blow out of computers? Imagine if it was wet...And your miner was rusty...

Not to mention wet air and high amounts of electricity don't mix.

i'm only planning to run them in summer and during hot days...the air in my mining room is quite dry...practically i turned it to something like a computer case...

i agree with you about the things you say and i think it is a bit different when the GPUs are running and changing the environment around them....clothes dries quite fast (i don't dry clothes outside the house anymore), i defrost frozen foods there and with the introduction of wet clothes the area near the clothes tend to be cooler..

i've seen some pictures of large bitcoin mining farms in China using evaporative cooling and i think they know what they are doing..

BTW i won't flood this thread with off topic posts...continue on with mining rigs, it is beautiful to see them all different and working.

Talking about rigs and cooling solutions is allowed.  If you use evap cooling, monitor humidity but It should be just fine.  Dry air is a problem for home miners, especially in winter.  Man we got some clean and tidy rigs and the "explosive man" rig Smiley hahahahhaha.  The aluminum rigs are so clean, but those supplies are pretty expensive where I live.  Maybe in the USA they are cheaper ?  And AxeS89 don't worry if you can't insert a pic.  Some of these rigs are works of art.  Some are contemporary art Tongue

By the way, don't want to seem like a beggar here (lol), but there is a 4btc contest going on at forum.bitcoin.com.  You can only vote if you already have an account there, but if you do, vote for "Mining Support and why you should mine."  If I win, the prize for this contest shall suddenly be VERY interesting.  I can still dream.

Some cool ideas here!

Well, I only have a temporary test rig, but on the chance that there does end up being a "ghetto rig" prize, I'll throw my hat in.

Stuff is holding on with clamps, no wire management, I just wanted to get her running as soon as the parts came in, and got around to bios modding and tweaking afterburner for best performance.

This is my first ever rig, and busy as I am, I have yet to cut wood to build the custom shelves I plan on putting it on. See last pic for shelves - from Ikea.

Rig is running 178Mhs ETH + 870Mhs Pasc dual mining - 950 watts to the wall - 6x 470 Nitro+ cards - top notch risers from hawkfish007

Ok people, I'm going to end this contest on Saturday EST, noon.  These are pretty much all really good rigs so its going to be hard to find a winner.  I might just randomly select one out of the ones I pick.

edit: ill announce and PM the winner tomorrow, kinda busy.  So I chose 5, and I'll do a random draw or something.

Thank you Smiley


P.S.
I need to add one hint, if someone want to make some outdoor rig,
it's nice to preserve SLI pins at least with some adhesive tape or plastic cover
because some of pins may be dimmed after months

Thanks again, yeah a lot of original rigs, hope it helped inspire a few home miners at least.  Til next time,
