I have been searching for some good info on soundproof enclosures and noise reduction to run these noisy antminers in the house. I put together a video of my quick creation on YouTube. It is my first video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfMrOjezl7k

S9 specific  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbAjh5q1Tzw&t
 

If you have any other soundproofing ideas let me know. I have a couple s9s that need sustainable sound proofing.

Just a note:  This design is a crude proof of concept to show that the miner does not heat up the box and reduces noise by around 30 dB. The key was some box around the minerwith the intake and exit air going through insulated ducking. It worked like a muffler or gun silencer. The insulated ducting is rated to very high heat as well.

So far so good.

I made another video today with the antminer S9 hooked up

Very cool!  Do you have forced air through the ducting?

WOW!!!
20 becibel less it's really a good improvement...
if you want you can use this panels to cover the box interiors
https://www.amazon.it/Baldiflex-Pannello-Fonoassorbente-Piramidale-100x100/dp/B00OHSIBU2
i think you can reduce other 7/8 decibel.
Compliments for the job

This enclosure has been running great for around a month and a half with zero issues.

Internal temps are around 24 degrees Celsius which is similar to ambient temp outside the box.
Boards are all stable

I found someone who is about the mass produce this soundproofing enclosure for Antminers.  Same concept but used different materials and looks quite nice.

There are 4 videos showing different stages of development and results.

https://youtu.be/lr0SHlEu_oE - showing beginning construction

https://youtu.be/EHvUdZdGefA  - showing last stage of construction

https://youtu.be/_FX-Pk2DrfM   - shorter video of installation of final product in residential room

https://youtu.be/XvLmInh4tNY  - showing noise reduction results with meter

I believe he is from France and is currently looking into sourcing materials for mass production and sale.

am very interested in this myself as the fans are "awful" in the words of my carer when she walked in and heard the thing going!
would you be so kind as to write out a description of what I need to do, as I'm totally blind so videos are difficult for me to follow, with the video for my carer and my tech knowledge and knowing what to do maybe I can get some sort of soundproof box rigged up here in my flat.
take care

Yours Sincerely,

Wow your idea is very nice ^^
I will challenge myself. Thank you.


do yourself a favor  combine  his design  with  my design

his materials are not fire resistant. I could be wrong  but they do not look it.

but the box would work  if  it  was lined  with my materials

his  tube is not big enough  needs to be 8- 10 inches  or gear over heats

Hello all, new guy here.
I live in Australia and have decided to start mining.

I will be picking up my first S9 tomorrow which I bought second hand on Ebay.
The machine will be in my garage which is located in the backyard detached from the main house.
Still I fear the neighbors might not be happy with the noise this thing will be making so I spent all day yesterday making a sound box as per some of the plans & YouTube clips floating around out there, just thought I'd share the pictures and see what your thoughts are.
I still need to connect the insulated flexible ducting, I have that on order hoping it will arrive pretty soon.

Send me a PM if you'd like to know about materials used & stuff...

What size vents did you add? I plan on doing similar and have already purchases the shrouds:
https://usahomegardens.com/products/antminer-d3-l3-and-s9-fan-shroud-from-shawnpc1-you-tube-chanel

These will help with the heat. I will attach them with small lenghts of 4" duct to a 4" wye and those into a 4 - 8" reducer then 8" insullated duct out the window using an inline fan.

My goal is both noise reduction and heat removal

I made one for my L3+ out of scrap wood (1" thick plywood) and an old exercise floormat, with 6" ducting holes and insulated duct for venting. Can post pics if you need but it's pretty much exactly how you'd picture it in your head. I keep the miner in the basement and run the duct up into the corner of my heater intake, so it's pumping into the upstairs and getting sucked into the heater when it's running (which is rare, since I have a bunch of other gpu miners running upstairs). Works great so far!

The vents are 150mm (6"), quite a bit bigger than the antminer fans.
My only concern is that the sound foam I used is not fireproof.
As you can see in the picture there is a steel mesh frame on the bottom so the miner sits about 1.5" above the foam, the side and top foam is quite a bit further away from the miner so I think it will be OK, but I'll keep a close eye on it and monitor the temperature inside carefully.

I did not include a picture so you may have meant this for someone else. Smiley But if you're worried about the 6" vent hole, it seems to work fine for me, I just have the L3 pushed right up to it so the entire fan is inside the duct entrance (which is itself metal). It stays very cool in my basement so the entire machine runs under 60C, even overclocked to 600mh/s.

Nothing I used is fireproof (except for the duct connectors and clamps, which are sheet metal). Unless you're sealing it off completely or placing it somewhere where no flammable materials are within a few feet, my thinking is it doesn't make much difference were the machine to catch fire. Not endorsing it, take whatever precautions make you feel safe of course, but I've been monitoring it for months and I feel pretty ok with it. I have been debating making a sheet metal outer casing, however, and I still may do that (I have a bunch left over from a heating duct replacement).

The reply was indeed pointed at the previous poster, I'm used to the quote button being on the bottom of a post on the other forums I post.
Like I said, I'm a newbie here :-)

Anyway, your post was helpfull nevertheless.

the L3  uses 400-500 watts less the then S-9

True, but likely not all that relevant. The fans compensate for that so it's really more an issue of making sure the curvature of the ducting is a more broad angle (if you're curving it for soundproofing). The fire risk would be the same: minimal, as the design and software are designed to cool and prevent it. But yes, the risk would be higher than with an L3. That said, I am currently debating picking up an S9 (especially with bitcoin breaking $10K) and I would be perfectly comfortable swapping out the machines in the same sound buffer.

The S9 is significantly louder from what I've heard, though.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003M8G39E/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

I looked into stuff like that; an hour or two of research and reading reviews led me to not bother. But I suppose it couldn't hurt.

(also something I am interested in researching further, though, so if you find one that seems trustworthy please post back!).
