Spent some time last year building an air economized rig instead of the standard air conditioned setup.

I first started with the idea to move the bitcoin miners outside to remove all of the heat and noise from my house, but that ended up not being so practical due to weather and risk of having things stolen. So i built a box with two 6" diameter air intakes and two 4" diameter exhausts from a used cabinet i found on craigslist. There are two FRAM air filters on the intakes to remove w/e crap gets in there. So far havn't been any real issues with particles or humidity. Temperatures have been getting shitty in the hot weather (80+ deg f), but in the past have been really good. If I were to do it over again I would better design the air flow. With 80 deg F intake you need a ton of CFM to keep cards cooled. All of the fans are high quality server fans, they move a ton of air, but use alot of power (3-4x a normal fan, they use .9 to 1.5 amps @ 12v). I remove the exhausts in the winter and just dump the heat into the house.

GPU Mining is about done with so sold them off, going to load it up FPGAs and ASICs.

Here's my current setup.  6x Sapphire 7970s on Win8x64.  Slightly OC'd while also undervolted from 1.175 to 1.090
Don't mind the ghettoness, this is my first rig.  I'm getting aluminum pieces this week and going to make them really nice, also getting ready for 2nd rig.  This is Damn Fun Cheesy Cool


Nothing ghetto about those temps. Smiley

What does your cgminer.conf look like ?

The thing has 5 fans pointed at it. It should run super cool.

Yup.. and it does. BlazinBeaches has updated the screenie and now shows 3.5 hrs of uptime.

Luuv the low fans speeds. Grin

Very nicely set up. Smiley

Thanks man Cheesy

@Reckman, what are the temps like in that case?

@Reckman, what are the temps like in that case?

not bad as long as the outside air is reasonable in temp, like 75 deg C, hot days all of the cards are 80+ and end up throttling

I think the air flow could be a ton better with a real industrial fan/blower, instead of the computer ones i have

thanks, i think its a great option if you dont want to pay the extra 35% removing the extra heat from your house. Plus it cuts the noise in half

600 W is 2000 BTU/hr so a 1 ton / 1 kW unit can remove 12000 BTU/hr of heat and it has an EER of 12 that means you're using 2/12=1/6th of the unit's 1 hour duty at 167 W so I'd rule of thumb this around 1/3 of the wattage in additional cooling expense instead of 100%

you are actually correct here, guess i had never done the math, doesnt really make thermodynamic sense but w/e

Received 2x USB Block Erupter sticks from the Europe group buy today...

I decided to test one on my old Asus Eee 700 PC (laptop) which has a 2GB SSD HD - 800 Mhz CPU - 512 MB RAM - running Windows XP.

This is a special laptop - as in 2009 I used this very machine to generate 'a few extra Bitcoins' - Yes really!  Shocked  Cool

With it's 800 Mhz processor this laptop probably generated somewhere around 1000-ish Bitcoin's, which are now in full circulation ofc. It ran 24/7 for several months (2 of these laptops actually on/off), until 100's of new nodes arrived on the Bitcoin network and the difficulty level got to great.



Any prizes for Rig-of-the-Week? Nah - thought not! Grin
you are a pioneer.

There ya guys go, I updated the pic to a fresh one that's been running for over an hour.  Fan speed is set at a constant 69% for now until I get things moved away from the window and more organized.  The box fan is an exhaust and the window next to it is open so fresh cool air is getting sucked into the room and going through all the cards.  It's still cool outside where I am at, but come summer I'll probably have to get a portable AC for that room.

Here is current config file;

HI there, here is my little honest Mining Farm haha.

Look at my farm, my farm is amazing, give it a try uhmmmmm, look at my farm, my farm is amazing, give it a try,uhmmmmm it's sounds like i'm crazy....hahahaha jokes apart
here are the photos and one prints of my little honest farm ;d



my imageshack.us algum http://imageshack.us/g/1/10198579/



As u can see on the last photo, with gpuz and all stuff,if  look at WU: its says ~900, its cause i only run the programa to show u guys this ;d i was playing BF3 MP before Cheesy
U can also see that my GPU MEM is underclocked, what? ya, what matters is the ratio of mem/clock, doesn't has to be overclocking memory, only highest coreClock will improve kh/s, mem can be underclocked as well as sha256 BUT, need same sweet spot as for overclocking memories.

i can't pass ~550kh/s cause XFX is not good, and i kinda have some....well oc scarry tha crap out of me, in less then 2 months i fried my HD6850 cause of oc...so i don't wanna push it more, not for now at least, but hey, with underclock is better for me and the card so i like it....
 keep in mind that what matter is ratio, and high CORE clock, mem clocks kinda just have to be there(u get what i mean).

Take the crossfire bridge off unless you use it for gaming.  It hurts your hashrate.
