Hey guys,

I wanted to create a clean silencer box like you have seen on youtube but I didnt see any good step by step videos, so I made one!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhNS2ElN5Mk




Let me know if you guys have any suggestions about making a better box?



Or even how to do it for multiple units!?





Tell me what you guys think!













In the DIY antminer s9 cooler box and silencer video will help you guys silence and cool your own antminers.

In this antminer setup we will talk about the tools needed to make the antminer cooler box and a step by step method of how to construct an antminer cooling box.

6 inch diameter hole drill to cut the air input and air output ducting for the antminer cooler.
1.25 inch diameter hole drill to cut the psu and ethernet cable hole on the side of the antminer s9 cooler.

Get as much 6" INSULATED ducting as needed to cool your antminer s9 bitcoin miner.

48 QT cooler to put the antminer inside. The antminer s9 should have more than enough room in this size cooler.

After cutting the holes on the antminer cooler, you can sand down the insides of the holes to give the ducting a smoother surface to fit through on the antminer cooler.

MAKE SURE TO WIPE DOWN YOUR NEW ANTMINER S9 COOLER after you make the holes to remove an excess dust or particles from cutting the holes. You do not want that going into your brand new antminer s9.

You can also use a fan to blow away any excess debris left on the cooler, use whatever you like just make sure you clean the cooler for the antminer well!

After you have finished cutting all the holes for the cooler, you can get a piece of styrofoam to put the antminer s9 bitcoin miner to rest on. The reason we do this is to align the antminer perfectly in the center to connect the hoses to each side of your antminer.

I am using a APW3++ power supply unit from bitmain but I have seen others using the EVGA power supply for this setup as well.

You guys can hear in the video that clearly the sound from the antminer is silenced. Its does not go away but it does tone down the noise level of these antminers. I put a decibel meter next to the antminer so you can see the actual readings of the antminers decibel.

 

I hope this help you guys with you diy cooling hacks for the antminer.

Hey!  First, thank you for sharing your techniques with us.  The data you provided on wind, sound, and temperature levels was great.  Do you know what temperature your Antminer is reading by logging in?  I have a silencer box thing going on but its running pretty hot for what it used to run at.

You are very welcome! That is why I am doing this is to spread the knowledge. Yes when I logged into the GUI my readings dropped about 2 degrees which is not bad when silencing this sucker!!!!

If you have any other ideas let me know, lets get more data on these!

I've made it much cheaper... Ikea 5$ table ... tuned it upside down. Made the walls and top cover from of the sound dumping and isolating material, cut the holes ... use the duct tape or gorilla tape, remember to use only aluminium stretching duct pipes and just connect 125mm duct silencer straight to miners intake and outtake and v'uola ... cost around 90$ for the whole set.... there you go 35db at full power!

That is a great design idea!  I think its awesome that we are all trying to solve this problem of sound while maintaining the temperature and air flow at an acceptable level.  I would love to see pictures of the IKEA table design as well.

Thank you! Yes lets see the pics of the IKEA design!

Remember the more information we provide to each other to help solve the problems  the quicker and better job we will do. We are like a collective mining pool!


Anymore suggestions?Huh? And cant wait to see your IKEA design!

Buy the Cooler directly? From where?

I agree 100% I get headaches as well from these damn things.

Guys,

I hope this helps!





I didn't waste so much efforts on this as the devices come and go... but I have also one another project in mind mind ... I will post more soon. Also If you can I suggest to use those fans... they are real "blowers"

ThugB,

GET THAT PSU UNIT OUT OF YOUR BOXX!!!!!!!!!

I honestly think that IS NOT the way you should be cooling that thing.


 1. Never put your PSU in the same box
 2. your insulation is leaky
 3. MAKE A VENT FOR YOUR PSU!!!


What are the chip temps ThugB when running this thing?


love the input hopefully my suggestions can help.

Yo, No worries!

There's a second white duct taking care of that as the air inside the box is 21°C. That's why I have a BT amp reader in there which is connected to a smart e-socket so it will shut off power if temps goes over 40°C.

The temps really depend on the season. At summer time chips get around 82°C and on winter time it's around 69°C and that's with new control board. With old control board the temps were around 7-9 degrees warmer (Bitmain's quaility Sad ).

ThugB, I was looking at your images again and can I suggest that you change your ducting to insulated ducting so you don't loose that heat in the transfer process.

Hey thanks for sharing, this looks like a great cost effective way to muffle a miner.

My question, and this is for any who has experience with miners, is static electricity a problem with a plastic cooler? Or styrofoam? Using a cooler without the plastic shell would be cheaper but would expose the miner to all that styrofoam.

It seems that it could be a problem with an enclosed space made of a material that collects static. I would hope not and that anyone who chimes in can attest to running a miner in a cooler for months with no issue. Then again caution is a good thing considering how much these things cost.

That is a great thought Benny, I want to do more research into that topic.

Yo,

I've tested all kind of ducts as I've been growing some stuff  Roll Eyes Over the years I've come to a result that alu-duc is the best for the moving air and as this unit need a lot of air I've came to a conclusion that this is a good option. But in your option you could also use the fanduct adapters on the miner and drill a bigger hole for a dumpers installation (the longer the dumpers the quieter the sound, the dumper must be at least 125mm wide) In that way you could make it much more quieter I think.

I've jut made a project on dumping two A3's Cheesy that's double "barrel" shotgun as I call it Cheesy

Great info bro! That is exactly what I am doing for my exhausting system. I am going from the 5 inch, to 6 inch to 12 inch ducting hooked up to a 12 inch inline fan.

Do you know the CFM on that alu-duc?

It is still noisy and your temps are bound to be higher in that box. U should run them as cool as possible to ensure they last. When u put a few of them together, the sound will get stronger on its own. Alot of it are low to medium frequency sounds which are harder to block and u can hesr them from some distance. U actually need soft 10-13cm of soft 100-200kg density material to really absorb the sound.

This would be humidity dependent too. If you run them in a really low humidity environment then some grounding would be in order. And just like hardware techs, if you're worried about static electricity you should always wear a proper grounding strap when handling the equipment.
