Does the summer months have an effect on the difficulty?  If you spend most of your time in the same room as GPU's mining 24/7, it's gotta get pretty uncomfortable.

Hardly anyone speaks English on this forum.

There was some of that.  But this summer, if the heat doesn't shut them off the rise in difficulty vs. rise in price definitely will.

I use water cooling, strapped to the copper-pipe going into my hot-water tank and sprinkers and tapped into my pool-pump/hot-tub...

Free hot water, lower AC bills, lower electric bills (higher heat = higher resistance = more power consumed)...

Not to mention the hot air is all pumped into the attic, where the 150F GPU air is cooler than the 212F+ attic-air.

That is called ghetto geo-thermal cooling... lol... the cool water coming from underground is a constant 65F here. And I drink coffee all day long, and flush, and shower, and filter the pool, so cooling isn't lacking.

Nice elaborate setup! How what is the depth of the water table and how deep does it extend?

I wrote the --auto-fan and --auto-gpu features so I wouldn't have to stop mining in summer... Of course if you can't get the heat out of your house or it's in your own room or whatever, that's a different problem.

(higher heat = higher resistance = more power consumed)...

Hmmmm. That doesn't sound right. Most of the heat produced is power loss on the die, which has a silicon substrate. Silicon is a semiconductor, so the resistance actually goes DOWN as temperature goes up.

Must be some other reason power draw increases at high temp.

I move my mining rigs into the garage during the summer. I don't push my cards hard (1000mhz core for 7950/7970 mining BTC) so temps are no problem. Also using riser cables and getting the GPU's away from each other drops the temp a good 10 degrees Celsius on each card. I just spread my mining rigs out over a couple folding tables.

I open the window.  Pretty simple solution.  Then again, it's not exactly very hot here. Smiley

Why not stick your rig in the huge open space in your ac unit where the air sucks in? Behind the filter of course so you don't even get dust? Free fan, and hot air is sent outside.

Im not sure you understand how AC systems work. you mean the condenser (outside part)?

I use geothrmal heat and cooling with a desuperheater. that means the heat from cooling the house goes into preheating the hot water. then my actual hot water heater is an air source heat pump which takes the hot air from my basement and puts that heat into my hot water tank.

free hot water from mining and cooling my house.

win!

I'm doing mostly scrypt so there is plenty of heat from my rigs. This type of device is sucking the heat out of my mining room, 10" seems to do very well  Grin
Running at 50% speed when outside temp is around 15C. I can double or even triple the blowers if thats necessary.

Would love to see this! Can you post some pics of your setup?

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

I don't intend to stop mining, but it may kill me because summers get fairly hot (~35-42C avg). I may spend the extra electricity and use an extra breaker to run a separate AC unit.

Same, we just open a window on the north side and one on the south side and it's like living in a wind tunnel, air is sucked out because of the temperature/pressure difference on both sides of the property.  Wink

I wont stop, but I will probably be naked a lot with a fan aimed at my balls.

Too much info, I know. Sorry  Lips sealed
