Creating special cooling devices for Jalapenos seems overkill to me.
As long as you keep them in a proper place they stay cool enough.
The ones I keep still in their cases are barely warm (40c), while those without cases are practically cold to touch (35-37C).
Sure, place them in the wrong place and they will soon overheat.

However, Inaba said at one point:

I would be very interested to see a water block that covers chips, 1850 and mosfets.  I think it would change the nature of performance quite a bit and it's been something I've been itching to try, but haven't had any time to even start on some sort of project like that.

I have cooled the mosfets and 1850 with a block of ice and it does increase stability, but it was pretty ghetto, so doing a proper coverage WB would probably yield even better results.

My latest rig:
- 2000 Kh Litecoin (2 5970s and 1 5850)
- 29 Gh Bitcioin (about 84 ASICMINER Block Erupters)

Already sold half of my Block Erupters pictured above... I only got to mine on most of them for half a day. My fingers still hurt from opening/closing 80+ ASICMINER gift boxes, then taking it out of the bag, then opening the case, then prying the miner out... geeez. Then putting them back together.. don't get me started, I feel sorry for the people in China that assemble the packaging. Cry

Not to mention all the USB COM port conflicts and Windows making me try every which way to hook the USB hubs together until all the sudden in magically worked. I'd suggest only chaining a maximum of 2-3 hubs before starting a new chain straight out of the motherboard/pcie usb expansion ports. I did eventually get all 84 USB miners recognized and mining 330+ Mh each.

I'm going to miss those guys..  Sad Cry

But when I can sell them for $145+ on Ebay a piece and with Bitcoin being down right now in value, I'd be silly not to just sell them now and be happy with that and reinvest back into good ole BTC. Cool

I'm auctioning off 10 miners and an Anker USB hub here on the forums by the way, it ships Friday! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=249179.0

I saw the first pic, and was like "Oh God, not another throw-my-crap-on-a-chair and suddenly you're a bitcoin miner!". But actually that's a nice, clean setup!

If you're building a large rig and you DON"T have a bag of at least 1,000 zipties, you're doing it wrong.

Mmmm 7970s Wink

BTW - what way do those fans blow are they sucking or blowing into the GPUs?

Looking for these? A vertical wind heat sink

For those who asked whether the fans within Jalapenos are blowing upwards or downwards, it's upwards in the original package. I have removed the casting and flipped the fan to blow downwards.

I agreed that BFL might have tested both way and decided that blowing upwards is the best way but this is with the constraints of the casting. So without the casting, i think it's better to blow downwards.

What do you mean they might have tested both ways? Do you think they flipped the coin and decided to go with fan upwards on a whim?

They were about $53 on Amazon. Kind of pricey, but it's the only hub I could find that would run 10.

So true lol. I keep a stock pile of Zip ties around in case I get in the mood to do a little rearranging/house cleaning. I think every GPU in my farm has at least 2-3 zip ties each in some shape, form, or fashion.

Forget zip ties...

If this doesn't solve it, than nothing will.

And leave a sticky residue all over the place? Good luck selling a GPU with glue all over the plastic shroud. Doesn't affect performance, but nobody's going to touch that.

these direct cu gpus are the coolest 7970s out there. i did only one day of testing - couldnt run psu at 110% for too long. but at stock clocks it did 60 to 70 C. overclocked one card peaked at 75 others about 70. oddly enough it ran cooler with door closed hence creating airflow i pressume.

Forced ventilation is (almost) always better than open air Smiley
But, what's your ambient temperature?
Intake temp is a priority to properly understand the airflow efficiency.

Thank you!

to be honest i didnt pay much attention to that. i had limited time to tinker with it since my current meter was going above 5A. i left this for now until i get 1500W PSU. i did my design based on many reviews saying 7970 dont go above 250W. though the current off the wall tells otherwise.

If your current meter on the wall is showing 5A then your only burning 550 W. Your not close to 1000W. Your power supply is fine, just like you read in your research.

Are you sure that the region voltage and frequency are the same in your comparison there?

Of course not!!!
I was joking!
Although, I'm quite surprised that no brightened mind had come up with a picture proud of gluing the cards to somewhere using duct tape...  Roll Eyes

I think you are looking for problems. Whatever gets the job done is fine, in this case duct tape is OK if there isn't any zip ties around. I also don't see a problem in spending 20 more like 5 minutes on cleaning a graphics card that will be sold for $100-200.
