That's a USB3 passthrough cable, routes to a front port. Only been relatively recently that cases have been wired for internal USB3 headers. I think I see a wireless antenna hugging the side of a PCI slot.

Nice setup scifimike12.  Better hope USPS don't see that box being repurposed, they're not big fans of people recycling used boxes (/giggle).  Also, where is that ethernet cable going in the last pic... Do you have a switch or hub inside the case?

Thanks!  You'd be amazed at how creative I get with their shipping boxes.   Grin

Both rigs are using wireless USB adapters.  I would love to use Ethernet but unfortunately my room is on the second floor where the router is on the first.

That's a USB3 passthrough cable, routes to a front port. Only been relatively recently that cases have been wired for internal USB3 headers. I think I see a wireless antenna hugging the side of a PCI slot.

Yeah sadly my Lian-Li didn't have internal USB 3.0 header cable when I purchased it last year.  It's unsightly in the back but inside it is much more organized.  And those are open PCI slots, it looks a little deceving.   Cheesy

Have a couple of miners in my bedroom.  Gets a little toasty, especially when the ambient temperature reaches 95°F.


Wow those look really nasty yummy.

I would like seeing everyone having one of those at home, distributed computing at it's best.

Anyone care taking a look at this question on rugatu ?

Had an old case laying around. Drilled the rivets out, removed the tray & card holder, c clamped the mobo tray & card holder together, predrilled three holes and screwed em together. Fourth and fifth photos, you'll be able to see the three screws holding the two pieces together. There is a hard drive rack under behind the shoe rack, that has 2 hdd's and one ssd that is not seen in the photos.
Used an old show rack that was in the closet.

The longest 5850 is spitting out 385 MHash/s, the shorter 5850 is spitting out 410-415 mhash/s.

Temps are awesome.

pekv2, you don't need 3 resisters per dummy plug. And you don't need the dvi-vga adapter either: http://blog.zorinaq.com/?e=11

That link makes no sense. on the diagram, it showing c1,c2 and c3. then a photo showing a resistor in C2-C5. And i'm not sticking nothing in my dvi ports except the dummy plugs.

I do need dummy plugs with 3 resistors, explanation below V.

You can insert on end in C1, C2, or C3 and the other in C5. 

From the article:
Quote
I simply insert the resistor —75 Ω is the ideal spec— in the DVI output port to make contact between C1-C5 (analog red - analog ground), or C2-C5 (green - ground), or C3-C5 (blue - ground).

It's the same thing as using a dummy plug, except that you can remove the dummy plug whenever.

Yea, I'll just stick to my dummy plugs as I bolded the quoted above /\.

I'm thinking on adding a Led in series with the resistor.
It would be "extra-cool" if I could use the leds for some kind of status other than on and of. (perhaps three leds, red green and yellow, and output the pure colour to the screen?)
Any idea or is this too dumb?

Four GPUs including the APU on a mATX motherboard. Placed in my shed. Running as cheap as I can get with salvaged PSUs, monitor and no case.

I would suspect there may be some new, cooler ones. Since there is atleast the probablity that the asics are OC able.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

What kind of cooler are you using on the APU? Was it hard to mount?

That cooler is the stock cooler that came with my Phenom II or FX-8150, it has the same mounting as the stock AMD APU cooler, but is better due to the heatpipes and larger surface area.

Tell me about it, there's some really... innovative solutions on here  Cheesy

Personally though I always liked the "total overkill gaming PC" model:

Any chance of resizing that pic? Also, 1700MH/s is what, 3 heavily undervolted 5970s? Or 7970s?

Tips? 1crazy8pMqgwJ7tX7ZPZmyPwFbc6xZKM9

7970s by the two bars of RED.

5970 is different looks ...

Finally snapped a good shot of my rig. Smiley



Currently 2x 5870 and 2x 5830. I have a 5850 in the mail, and I'm trying to grab a third 5870, in which case I'll sell one of the 5830's.
