On the idea of giving it back I am kind of summarizing what I've learned over the last few months.

=Monitor=

- Web monitoring

https://imgur.com/a/WV3Rt

It's based on a fork on github.
Notable improvements over the original fork are:   
* auto email on failure
* avalon support
* restart
* profits page
* auto detect model version
* configurable high temps
* support to be used over nginx

PS. I can post more details about this if others want.

- Raspberry PI

I've implemented a simple GPIO circuit for automatically telling me when something is wrong with the miners. It could be as simple as network partition, low hashrate, high temps, etc. It deserves its own post If I was to post all the details, so if others are interested let me know.

- Automatic Fire extinguisher
https://www.htgsupply.com/products/the-watch-dog-automatic-fire-extinguisher-6-kg
PS. Please see your requirements before buying the model. Each model is suited for a proper volume area to cover.

= Misc =
* Costo Shelve Rack - https://www.costco.com/.product.488963.html
* 11xAPW3++ + 1xHP Server PSU: The only non apw3++ I'm using its for a D3 which I don't care much if it breaks.

=Ducting=
* Antminer Vent Shroud: Ended up with the 5' because I could not find the 3d model for 6'. For one PLA spool ($20 bucks) I've printed 4 shrouds and still had quite some filament left.
*  PLA 3d printer filament: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MEZE7XU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Thingsverse file: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2782142
* Other components: Used simple 5" x 25' duct connector (Cutting them in 3x8 feet parts), Adjustable Metal Worm Gear Clamps and some 5" Galvanized Worm Gear Clamps.

Component list:
* https://www.supplyhouse.com/sh/control/product/~product_id=44784
* https://www.supplyhouse.com/Lambro-Industries-245-5-Galvanized-Connector-for-Rigid-Semi-rigid-and-Flexible-Duct
* https://www.supplyhouse.com/Lambro-Industries-380-LAMBRO-5-Galvanized-Worm-Gear-Clamps

Laser cut on a plywood sheet of 12x19 with 4' or 5' inch holes to put on a window.
 
PS1: For my L3+ I've used 4x25' duct connectors. I've noticed temps were ok with those.
PS2: For my Avalon's I've used 6x8 semi-rigid aluminum duct with silver tape.

Good idea the automatic fire extinguisher. I'd just recommend better cable management.

I originally tried integrating in the original fork, but the author was quite resistant to some changes I've made. Feel free to send patches if you want any features or find any bugs.

I'd just recommend better cable management.

I agree, what do you guys use for cable management?

Velcro cable ties, or standard zip ties, thicker ones for pdu power cords and such.
