@ dmwardjr

What about a hole(or two) in the closet door (18x24) and set it up with an a/c filter assembly like an a/c air handler closet.

I've considered that.  However, after standing in the closet with the door closed, I could tell it needs some cold air coming into it.  Having more ventilation just want cut it.

I'm about to head to Lowe's to get an AC unit for the mining/data closet.

Sorry if I don't respond for a while.

Yep, slush's good luck tends to outweigh the not so good luck; and this week's luck can certainly be classified as better luck.
I also saw a peak of 8.4PH this week (never stumbled accross that and it coincided with the proliferation of the new firmware for the S3+ .... I think!)

Is a worker-password no longer needed for Slush's pool ?

edit:
I already got an answer:
password can be anything

Donations are always welcome :-)

slush doesn't allow for manual changing of the diff, is that in the S4's gui???

Check your facts, infact slush NOW allows manual setting of diff.

Oh yeah!

so the person trying to find the correct diff should stop trying as... (to resolve their diff issues)

"Pool will always assign difficulty equal or greater than this value. It is recommended to leave the value empty (it will be assigned automatically)"

Dear Bitmain Antminer S4 owners, we have had reports about incorrect hashrate being displayed in your profile. After investigating this issue, it turned out that the S4 firmware ignores difficulty lower than 2048. You can now set the minimum difficulty in the worker registration table. This ensures that our stratum servers will NOT attempt to give your workers lower difficulty than this threshold.

Well, I've been busy today...









I got a good deal on this 8000 BTU air conditioner.  I even got me a 3 year repair/replacement guarantee from HH Gregg.  This was a display model.  It is getting close to winter and all they had were 2 air conditioners left.

Was that the best place for the air condition? If you fill that shelf with more devices you dont think it will choke the a/c?

Certainly do...

That's why another one will be going behind the next shelf up when I add more equipment.

All miners are between 41 and 45 on temperature now with the door closed.

Not bad, considering...

You think that is the best place or that the miners so close to the intake will choke the a/c?

Not sure if it will or not.

I suppose we will find out.  If this is a mistake.  Someone can learn from my mistake.

I wish I had bought a 10 inch instead of an 8 inch exhaust fan.  That is one mistake I have made already.

I added my box fans to the closet with zip ties to other shelves in the closet.  It has brought the temp down even more on the rigs.  When the AC blows out down low straight out to the door, the fans then suck the air up and onto the rigs.  Temps rang from 37 to 42 now with the closet door open.  I'm also allowing AC to be sucked in from the recreation room.

I've got to do something up high to suck out the heat better.  I wish I had got the 10 inch exhaust.

I think I'm gonna go for the BIG GUN and get the 14 inch Can Max Fan 1823 CFM (Really 1700 CFM).  However, it is quieter than all 10 inch fans yet has the same CFM if not more that most 12 inch fans have.  It also uses less amps than most 12 inch.  Since it has larger blades, it does not require as many RPM's to move the same amount of air as a 12 inch.  This in turn makes it quieter and more energy efficient [ranges from 213 to 230 watts.

So again, quieter than most 10 inch fans with same CFM or more than most 12 inch fans.

You have to watch this dude getting blown around with this thing on youtube and also SEE THE SIZE OF THIS THING next to him.

I will sell the 8 inch hyper fan on eBay.  Someone is going to get a good deal on it.  Usually hydroponic growers buy these things.

Not worried about Pulling out more air than the ac can put out?  Maybe put it on a thermostat instead of on all the time, or go with a lower cfm setting.

He still has the vent in the bottom. If the a/c cannot supply enough air any extra can be pulled through the vent. Admittedly the vent might not be large enough.

Been mining for almost a year and using a desktop wallet. Finally getting some new equipment and more bitcoins (hopefully).  Wondering what yall think about online wallets like Xapo or Coinbase etc?

Thanks,
JT

Depends if you want to be anonym or not. On Xapo you have to give out your phonenumber to use your wallet so I dont recomend it since some of the point of using bitcoin is to be harder to track

^ The only online wallet that looks good to me is Circle. Your funds in your wallet are insured. Coinbase is insured but I think only for their coins. You may want to check for yourself. I use Mycelium android for daily use and cold storage for bulk.

You are correct.  Also, a LOT of heat is in the garage.  I taped up the vent on the garage side to keep from sucking the heat into the closet.

When standing in the closet, it is warm up high from my chest... up to the ceiling.  If I kneel down, it feels comfortable.  The box fans are pulling up the cool heat onto the rigs to cool them down from approximately [41 to 47 rig to rig depending on location] to [37 to 43 depending on location].  The 37 to 43 is with the door open as well.

I'm heading to Lowe's now to look for a large vent to install in the closet door.  The goal is to get rid of the box fans to use less watts and have room to move around in their.

Be back after a while.
