Buy some self activating fireballs.  I have one on top of each of my metal wire racks, and also tempered glass between each shelf and miner to prevent one from killing them all. If the heat and fire actually spreads the fireball takes care of the shelf and the room.

No amount of money, is worth it, when someone has to die for it. Invest in smoke detectors and keep the insurance companies happy too.

They will look for any bloody excuse not to pay, in the event of a fire.

I run out of a basement, and had two close calls already. {Risk is, if you do not invest in it, you loose everything, and possibly your life}

This thread is a interesting read. Myself a Electrical Engineer as a Trade knows simply.... If you decide to mine at home make sure you have properly worked out the current load on the circuit and calculate the new load of be added. Also allow a further 10% for movement.

Again making sure you use the correct sized power cable and not the cheap cable you get free with your monitor!. The more copper you have in the cable the more the heat can be dispersed.

Once you have all the above sorted a good RCD wouldn't go a miss!


I would be interested to see the pictures of this fire as 9/10 fires come from human error!.

They are just normal balls, which you throw in a fire and they splash open or something, thus extinguishing the fire.
Its a better alternative to the fire extinguisher. And you could just leave it aside the miner, and it will extinguish it itself.

In our old server rooms, we had a system, that replaced the oxygen in the room, with a gas, less flammable. So you starve the fire, from oxygen and it cannot burn or burns slower, to give you more time to extinguish it.

What we found, was that it cause less water damage.
