5.5 GH/s, 36 Watts total. That's my "rig"!

All you need now is a small solar panel and battery set-up and you can be mining bitcoins for no operational costs.

I wonder how long this could run off of just a 12v car battery. Or a bank of LiPos.

For fun:
Let's take a group 27 deep-cycle battery from my store ($117.95 + $5.00 core charge).
It's rated at 96 amp-hours, multiply that by its nominal voltage of 12 volts and you get 1152 watt-hours.
Divide by 36 watts (we'll assume that the DC-DC supply you'd use in place of the AC-DC supply will also pull 36 watts from the battery) and you get 32 hours of run time (approximately).

You'd want to use a deep-cycle battery, not an actual car (cranking) battery.  The car battery wouldn't last very many cycles in this application.
And LiPos are just too expensive for something like this, several times what a wet lead-acid would be.

I have an even more fun idea. Cheesy

Since this is so light and efficient It could be put on a (relatively) cheap weather balloon. Give it a cellular modem like a tethered android phone and you have the first bitcoin miner at the edge of space. Cheesy Mind you it might need a stronger radio. lol

The best passive cooling strategy  Grin free of charge.BTCMining location will be more and more important in the future.

reminds me of this: (look at date of post)



I used this strategy more for noise-reduction than cooling, although the cooling part worked really well, too.

how do you keep the moisture out? How does it not suck snow into the case? I would love to see a picture of one of these open.

Moisture is not an issue since the inside of the case is much warmer than the surroundings.

Only issue might've been little droplets of water getting in. Avoided that like this: I'm sucking in air at the bottom of the case over a large area and protecting the rectangular inlet with 3 layers of fly screen about 1 cm apart.

It's been operating for close to 1 year like that with no issues. Only stuff that got in was some pollen. It was much much cleaner than a machine that operates indoors would be after 1 year.

I'm sorry I don't have shots of the construction. It's been decommissioned in late 2011.

And last time i use it for mining i got an powerfull 15MH/s ... :p
I didn't use it for mining of course Smiley
