Damn I was looking forward to hearing your comments....don't forget to watch them anyway man  Wink

What's your rig like?

Oh by the way for anyone reading....these are my first youtube videos so I didn't think to do them in landscape.

I might do better ones again and think out exactly what I'm going to say before videoing because I want to make sure I get all the details in that I want.  Smiley

How are you cooling yours btw and how much heat are you generating?  Smiley

Have you a handy link there to see it again rather than having to search, I'm not sure how to use the search engine on this site properly.

Here is a link -> http://btcnetwork.com/coinconnect/pages/view/1302/gigavps-mining-operation

The setup has changed a bit since most of the rigs are now in a small room with 3 ton AC unit cooling them. I am running about 16Kw an hour just for the rigs, so that's around 60000 BTUs of cooling needed.

I'll take some more pictures the next time i'm at the DC.

Cool, sure take a video aswell if you get the chance.

I wanted to stay away from air conditioning but eventually I gave in. I've a 12 inch centrifugal fan sitting here in the house which I bought used - initally it was for the non air-con route, I did up a plan but wasnt sure if it would work, I talked to a ducting technician and showed him my plan - he said he would consult an engineer - the engineer said air-con was the only way to go. The machines had been sitting doing nothing for too long at that stage so I gave in. I wouldn't have been able to cope if this system failed because I had tried others.

I might take a video of the fan (it's a serious piece of kit - capable of changing the air 67 times an hour in that room) to see if anyone has any ideas on how I might be able to save money using it. I was also considering a radiator to move heat over to warm the radiators in the house.

Cooling is definitely my #1 problem. I can build rigs all day long, but keeping them running efficiently has proven to be a challenge. I have just recently got all 30Gh running stable, cool and efficient. I haven't had to intervene in days except for jumping on ssh to restart a locked up gpu which has been nice.

Here's the video of my, as of yet unused extraction fan.

I hope I get better at doing this videos soon. At least this one is done in landscape though.

Blimey. My rigs add up to 7.5 GH/sec and I wish I had air conditioning in my UK house... actually I wish I had a garage. Damn these insane prices where I live.

My rigs are all good fun stuff that I did for teh lulz - and to be frank, with UK electricity prices, I was only just breaking even on the power until recently with the > $3 BTC. If I had to pay to run air con too... no way.

Without air con, you get a very very warm spare bedroom that heats the entire first floor without additional heating required...



The rest are being configured in my office, which is roastingly hot and threatening to kill me from dehydration (so if I post some inane nonsense, blame it on heatstroke) - but soon to be installed into a second frame as above, which is built and ready.

It's all a bit Heath Robinson, but with better GPUs in the second rig, the same 8 GH/s would be achievable with 2 frames, one on each floor (leaving my cellar office alone!!!).

How do you guys stay profitable with the costs of running aircon? Is aircon *that* cheap to buy, install and run these days? I know we're backward in the UK (hardly any homes have aircon) but if it's *that* cheap then I'm getting one for the office...

...so I give in to the rhythm, the click click clack
I'm too wasted to fight back...

Depends on where you live.   Most homes in Southern US have central AC.  A window unit for more cooling capacity is pretty cheap and a DIY project.  A guestimate (depends on inside/outside temps and unit efficiency) is that it takes about 30% more energy to remove heat from the room w/ AC. 

So 1000 kWh in actual load = +300kWh more to remove AC.

Some parts of the US have <$0.07 per kWh electrical costs so it isn't that bad though.  AC on UK electrical prices?  Well that would be brutal.

Just watched your videos, pretty cool, I don't need AC because i just have one card Grin but being on a 3rd floor apartment, it gets hot in the summer, so we have one.  I love winters in general, but i am loving it now that i can open one window and cool down the place down.


Your set up, looks like it'd be pretty toasty without that AC...
