Hi, just a place share and discuss how we setup our FPGAs.

I'll start by posting an image of my passive setup:



I'm also looking at providing active cooling via an aquarium pump.

Hi i have also bought 5 Boards from Ztex. I think ill go Passive some day. But for Now they run with the small Titan cooler (and the xilence fan because this has an RPM Signal.....)
And i need to build a case for them .....

Nice to see them in action now Smiley Will be looking forward to get one of these Units in my hands someday. For now i'll stick to Ztex because i can order them without problems like tax and shipping costs.

Looks awesome, giga!

I'll figure out how I'm going to cool 20 x6500s and post back here later Tongue

If that works with ztex boards, it should work with the x6500 rev3 (which has heatsink mounting holes) equally well.
With the rev2 it might be a bit tricky to mount those heavy heatsinks, and the thermal resistance of thermal adhesive is usually higher than that of thermal grease.

Are those ztex boards?

Are you running at full speed with passive cooling?

I'd ideally like to run passively albeit with X6500s.

Yes, 1x3 and 4x3N, and it's not completely passive. You see that knob/sill under the edge of the windowboard, that's an outside air inlet. So I have air blowing onto the heatsinks.

They are running at 3x216 and 2x208.

I use a D510MO with SSD and PicoPSU as computer, so my whole digital setup is completely silent!

I think that without the active cooling they might run at maybe 3x208 and 2x200 instead, but the wear/lifetime would be very different.

We'll see how they run during the summer (if the balcony door or a window is open, there's no airflow) and if there is a problem I'll add some kind of active cooling.

temporary case but you get the idea
(as seen in the bitcoin syndicate threads)

That's a pretty sweet setup. Very clean install.

Not much of a rig, just a little Icarus tower and some 600rpm fans.

Thanks for the info. I intend to build a similar tower of FPGA power.

This is awesome. Great idea to start this, rupy.

We posted some great photos of X6500 based rigs in the FPGA Mining Gallery.

Nice hubs. I wonder if they make a 10 port version of the hub in that pic. Next time I need a hub I'll give you a try. I just bought a 10 port hub from some dude on ebay for around $8 but I'd rather support a fellow bitcoiner.

Good luck with your business.

One suggestion though, you may not want to post in this thread next time as I think the mods would consider this as advertising.
