Hello all,

Currently running 3 pieces of mining hardware, and I am curious if my temps are within spec, or if I need extra cooling. They are currently set up amongst the telecom & network equipment at work, where I know that airflow and heat from other equipment makes things non-optimal. I am somewhat restricted by needing to keep them out of sight and out of notice.

- BFL stock Jalapeno, averaging about 5.3 GH/s, running at 48-50c

- BFL firmware-upgraded Jalapeno, averaging about 8 GH/s, running at  about 54c

- BFL Little Single. This unit initially sounded like a friggin Tornado. I stripped the case off, flipped the heatsink fan to blow down instead of up, and replaced the chassis fan with a Cooler Master 120mm Silent fan.  This resulted in a massive reduction in noise and a 10c reduction in temperature. Currently averaging  31-32 GH/s at 71c

Thanks for any input.

I can't believe there's no one who has any information or experience with these devices...

I am running BFL upgraded Jalapeno, averaging about 7 GH/s, running at  about 36c. My temps are low because I took the casing off the unit which dropped the temperature down from 54 to 36. I think the case relay restricts the air flow.  If you are able to remove the casing... Go for it, you will see a lower temperature.

As for you other units, I cant help you there, although my guess is you will see a nice drop in temperatures if you remove the case.
