All that heat mining generates got me thinking a bit...
It's a shame that all that hot air is treated like a waste-byproduct.
I'd like to use that heat to keep my kitchen warm in the upcoming spring and winter.
Since these ASICs are a bit loud i started digging for solutions to reduce the noise.
Some people build enclosures and lower the noise a little bit- like this guy:

I was thinking about using sound-dampening foam or bitumen-mats.

Or build a pc with 2 or 3 gpus.

I and lots of peoples I know use mining rig to heat houses. Rigs in almost all room in past Smiley
But in that case you must go on silent cards and power suplies. For example in past was
very good for that kind of buisnies to use msi gamin x series of cards, like msi 380, card
is almost without any sound, and with combine with rmx 1000 you have perfect rigs for
house Smiley Now for is good msi 1060 gaming x, on ethereum almost passive cooling Smiley
And design of mining rig is also need to be change, best is that use 4 cards and all of them
to take cold air, not from other cards.

I don't mind some noise in that room, we eat in another one.
If i cannot hear much through the closed door, that will be optimal.

Are you guys using electrical heating in your houses by default ?
I have some local heating-provider as default.

You might want to look at 0db mode GPU's.

For instance, the ASUS R9 380 in 0db mode doesn't turn on the fans until 60C.

A variant of this idea is to run GPU's at a higher temp say 75C to 78C

ok, i changed the headline a bit to clarify it:
My question is how to get these ASICS more silent.
I know that the GPUs offer more options but my question is targeted towards silencing Antminer-ASICS in particular
