Yup, its outside. Why pay to pump the heat out of my house (air conditioning) when I can let mother nature do it for me? Been like that for at least 8 months with no significant problems.

No rain?
Or just sheltered some other way? It looks precarious, but if it has worked that long there isn't any reason to change it.

Yeah, we got a carport. and the sides of it are closed off with weather-proof tarp, so its mostly shielded from the elements (wind/rain/snow/etc)

The bottom rig can slide out if I need to take it inside for maintenance, but otherwise it is tightly secured. The top one -could- be knocked over if someone really wanted to, but I'm really the only person that ever uses that entrance.

I admire the gonads it takes to leave computer hardware running outside, 24/7, even if it is under a shelter.

I'd be worried about:
- Hurricane-force rains
- High humidity
- Theft
- Nature's beasts (cats, etc)

But hey, if it works, it works!

I've always wanted to trying burying a computer underground, turned on and idling, just to see how long it would last.

I had my miner outside for close to a full year in heavy rain, storm, snow, hail (in a wooden box).

humidity is not an issue, because the inside of the case is usually warmer than the outside, so no condensation will occur. I was a little worried on the seldom occasion I had to switch it off.

Actually the only thing that ever visible got into the case was some very fine pollen Wink.

Mining is a side business with a partner. I have it all pretty much automated and doesn't require hardly any time day to day to keep running. Mainly just monitoring and moving btc.

my intentions exactly... i'm trying to figure out how to write the business proposal without sounding like a lunatic though. "you turn on some hardware, and it makes money? yea, right." for now, i'll just do what i can with my single 6870...

Best rig yet. Why not add gasoline based liquid cooling, if you're trying to start a fire.

mtminer, how much amperage are you pulling, and did you run new circuits to accommodate it?  Or is that in some sort of office space that already has plenty of available amperage?

When I moved in there last year I lucked out and where a bunch of 20 amp 240 plugs but the rig outgrew that so recently putting in 4 30amp and 1 20amp 240 runs to clean up things as the extension cords where getting bit out of hand.

Currently the rig is pulling ~80 amps for everything.
