Question: Are you going to switch off some or all miners during earth hour?
Yes, I need symbolic remorse because I'm generally a bad person - 10 (11.2%)
Yes, but I'm gonna play Battlefield on the on all GPUs instead - 13 (14.6%)
No, I hate hippies and treehuggers and I'm gonna switch on some more because I think overall hashrate will be lower - 66 (74.2%)

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Its worth saying that not all crypto coins require mining like bitcoin does.  So if you wanted to own a coin or operate a network without using up alot of electricity or resources you could decide to opt for proof of stake rather then proof of work which btc uses to great expense.

Im not certain mining is essential, if not then this could be the ultimate saving.  I apologise if this is sacrilegious :p

Our country weather is very hot. To save my mining units i switch off 15 minutes for every 2-4 hours.

On that note, do you have some idea how long it takes them to cool to ambient temperature?

For example, are they at ambient after 15 minutes, or is that just a short break? Conversely, are they at ambient after 5 minutes, and you give them 10 extra minutes?

Summer is coming, so I would be interested in your experience.

I was able to measure the heat dissipation of a room by measuring the change in temperature after leaving 120W of lighting on. For that I assumed the temperature outside the room was stable (kept at 20°C by a thermostat in the winter).

If turning the the equipment off for 15  minutes every 3 hours helps, I would just underclock the machine by ~8% It would save on heating/cooling cycles.

Given the open build of these things, do you think the cycles matter that much?

Are the chips that frageelay?

Mine have been turned off for most of April. Earth month for me.. oh wait, this was only due to technical difficulties over the whole operation.

I applaud your Earth month efforts...oh wait, I hope you fix the technical difficulties.

This Earth, she needs a warmin'.

I just need time. Until I get this sorted, I'm saving a lot of electricity.

As in worrying if they would start again? Why wouldn't they?

They aren't a life support system. HA!
