Peltier coolers are best case approximately 60% efficient, its hard to find good numbers as there are so many variables involved. So you would need at least a 230 watt one to cool a gpu at all and almost tripling power usage and heat output. I tried to cool a 45 watt low power cpu with a 73 watt peltier and it failed to do so at full power.

Has anyone ever done a mini fridge rig, or an old school locker with air conditioning?  Maybe reading up on Peltier coolers would help a bit.


The amount of power required to cool a GPU with a TEC cooler would not be worth it in the long run unless you didn't pay for power.... But I think putting that money towards more GPU's would be more logical..

Hi! I havent uploaded any pictures here yet. A while ago i stopped mining because of the noise and heat issues. I had to solve this issue. This is how i solved it Cheesy



Yes so i bought a box, and isolated it and added ventilation. The Cold air intake is at the bottom, and goes up on the opposite side from the warm air outtake. I have added a  I have another plate over so the the fans sucks the warm air into the little space then out of the box.

So atm the box is outside and i have one rig doing some mining :-)

I will upload more pictures tonight(at work at the moment).

Regards
Robin

I had a few of the Coolit Freezone's..... I had two of them in 1 loop..... I was running gas lines to help keep the condensation down...... My idle temps were like 5'C with a max of about 20'C @ 100% load.... .

One of my new rigs - 3x5830 + 3x5850 = 2.2GH/s
And no the Mobile Phone isn't a detonator Cheesy I'm using it to restart the PC if it crashes.








lol.. Your setup rullez, I use my GF for restart purposes, but your way to go is far more advanced  Grin

Wonder if might they let you put a crate like this into checked luggage? ... If on were to be going on talking tour of the beginning of bitcoin, earlier miner rig prop is great for show and tell part .... maybe remove the suspicious looking cellphone trigger mechanism?

From one rack guy to another, very nice but with the cards and from what I can see how do you keep the temps down?  I had to pull the cover on my CPU to get enough air in there to cool that bad boy down.

because i have enough space, and i want to let the cards enough room to breath Smiley

i have AC on that room, all my GPUs run around 62-63 degrees celcius with fans below 50% rpm. top cover is indeed off mainly for my confort

2Gb RAM / AMD Sempron / BAMT (Pentium 2 and Winblows on the desktop miner)

Just how many of these rigs are Photoshopped?  I figure BTC would be a lot more progressed if all of these rigs were dedicated to BTC only.  I'm sure people do a lot of other stuff like gaming (mainly hosting servers and whatnot) with all of this power.

Ummm, I can't speak for everyone else, but no Photoshop here. Just camera-> Paint to reduce the size -> Photobucket.

I guess my dog does look a little funny, but he was scratching himself at the moment lol.

What do you mean "more progressed"? Are you calling my setup primitive?? Lol, just kidding... it is a little rough around the edges I know, but I am too lazy to fix it up and make it look nice. It runs fine and that's all that matters to me!
