Hello all,

Would you consider an IR camera a worthy investment for miner reviews?
They produce pictures like this, but are very, very expensive. A camera of this resolution would have cost likely $40,000.



A more reasonable camera ($5000-8000) would produce images like this. I could then tile several to create a larger picture, although they would use different scales.



This is more investment then I could personally put in, so the additional question is would you be willing to contribute to such an investment?

The FLIR One is pretty low resolution.  I'd see if you can find a FLIR E4 (goes for around $1k) that you can still perform the hack on to get higher resolution:

Though it looks cool as shit, I think your reviews can do without it.

I agree, though mostly because there's not really all that much added value in it from a technical viewpoint; designers already know this information and try to optimize it, choose cooling solutions, etc., while for end-users there's not all that much to it given that the design is essentially finalized and most people would at best consider swapping out fans or dropping heatsinks on/under the usual suspects; the hashing chips, the voltage regulators, and if you're unlucky, inductors.

It's still eye candy, though - can't blame Dogie for wanting one Wink

If anybody's curious as to what some miners look at in a thermal imaging view, check out: http://cryptomining-blog.com/?s=thermal

Yeah resolution is pretty low, and all their marketing material was made with much, much more expensive cameras.

Oh wow that E4 hack is a much better deal - if it still works. E4s cost around $1600 in the UK.
