Hello guys,

I am new on this forum, I hope that I posted in the correct section.

I am trying to build immersion cooling system for 20 AntMiners S9. For now I made a research and found that my coolant (liquid) will be PDMS silicone oil. The bath will be made from PVC sheets welded together.

My question is : does PDMS silicone oil interacts with electronic components, PVC sheets, cables, brass pipes and other materials that will be immersed with this oil?

Thanks for answers!

Suggest googling Immersion cooling, there are hundreds if not thousands of threads on doing that for PC and GPUs.  The same rules will apply.

Curious why your looking to do this with your S9s?  The only advantage would be noise since you can't overclock the auto-freq ones, and you would still have to get rid of the heat...

You will spend so much on this immersion cooling idea you will never make a profit on your machines.

Also, nothing im reading about the fluid you have chosen states that it is safe for this idea.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

I am thinking about immersion cooling because of a very high air pollution in the country where I keep miners. Another thing is that 20 S9s is only immersed in one bath and we will have maaany baths. So there is also no need to worry about heat, because each bath will use heat exchanger.

I know that there are many threads about immersion cooling, but the answers are totally different. Some people use 2-phase Novec liquid, some use cheap mineral oil, other guys say that mineral oil interacts with S9 and needs some additives and the last guys say that they use silicone oil.

That is why I was confused so I asked here.

Thanks for any help!

Heat does not qualify as air pollution... and the S9 does not, in itself, generate any.  The power plant likely does of course, but that is not something you have any control over.

That said, you still need to get rid of the heat, so oil immersion buys you nothing but cost you a fortune to setup.  You won't save anything on space either, since the S9s are pretty compact.

Haha  Cheesy

Who told you that heat qualify as air pollution? I know the place where I have my mining farm and I know how bad pollution is there. You can trust me bro! Smiley

Of course that I save - I have a huge free water flow supplied by the power plant and that is why I want to use it to cool the computers. I won't be able to cool all my computers (few thousand) with just air.

I hope now everything is clear. Still need answer about my Clearco ST 50 oil as a coolant.

Thanks,
