And spend 20 min on every GPU? Why are we even talking about this?!

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.


I think he is more on the lines of thinking in terms of preventing future hassle/problems.  The duct tape thing was probably a joke. But in the sense of this convo, yes it obviously makes more sense to take 5 extra minutes to shoot down the right isle at the store and grab a bunch of zip ties, than take hours cleaning a boatload of video cards down the road.

Herewith is my GPU rigs farm evolution :

Tester rig:

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!

Ziptie manufacturers and investors must love you.
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?

mixed 7970 & 7950 Wink

Those fans pull out the hot air from GPUs .

Here is my latest creation. I would say that due to the heat density of the chips any proper waterblock would need to be rather weighty. Still fluctuations in air temperature do not affect it which is nice.
EDIT: Also a parallel setup going to each cluster separately would work much better than serially as shown here.

Thanks fellas.  These are EK chipset blocks I modified to fit the board.  In reality though there is not enough metal to cool these chips well. A really hefty all in one block would probably work best if anyone is a designer.

LOL! ~50 Block Erupters don't create that much heat. I bet you his entire setup (Host PC, Block Erupters, USB hubs, fans, etc) uses around 200W, less than 250 at MAX.

What brand of USB hub is that and the fan?

BTW is the fan quiet?

I'm building the Adafruit PiMiner and looking for compatible USB hubs and a quiet fan for my setup.

That's an Anker 10 port hub and someone has put a custom decal on it (bitcoin). They are not rasb pi combatible. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NGQWL2/

The fan is this http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/equipment/peripherals/55/arctic-breeze-mobile.html?c=2195 how loud can a USB be be lol?

 The Arctic Breeze fans are surprisingly quiet and move a lot of air.

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.
 Grin

Tape is surely better for some purposes. Ever tried to build a bridge spanning 10 meters with zip ties? (See myth busters for the tape bridge).

Finally moved my operation to an offsite location on Sunday with .05 kwh power. Not finished yet, but it's a lot cooler at my house!
