Pretty impressive, counted 49 cards?

Whats the noise like in there?

I'm over 70 cards now since the racks are full now (that pic was taken over a month ago). The noise is loud, but the exhaust fans cause the majority of the noise. It's an unmanned location, so noise isn't a factor.

Wow 70 cards is a good haul! How many GH are you getting from those if you dont mind me asking?

Wow 70 cards is a good haul! How many GH are you getting from those if you dont mind me asking?

Just north of 50,000 kh/s for Scrypt, with some more coming this week to put me at 60,000.

It won't last, but I'm glad I did this while everyone was focused on the ASIC race (I also ordered a 162Gh/s that won't make ROI most likely once it arrives). I also had a heck of a time with heat, but thanks to many hydroponics websites, they had a lot of information on cooling spaces. Those fans I installed with intake/exhaust, saved me about 6 tons of cooling. And after late september, the space will be under 80 degrees until May with just outside air being pumped in and hot air being exhausted.

atomicchaos:

A few questions about your setup...

1. Are you running a "best efficiency" pool like multipool, or are you manually switching all your miners to the best alt coin?
2. To check on, or make changes to the miners, do you have to remote (VNC, RDP, etc.) into each one? or do you use some other centralized way?
3. How often do you exchange mined coins to Bitcoin? Daily? Weekly? And how much time do you spend doing it?
4. Are you keeping track of HW expenditures vs. income? What is your estimation for ROI?

If we did something like that in the UK, we'd likely get raided by the old bill looking for a cannabis farm (they even use heat seeking cameras on helicopters to hunt down the hot spots in attics etc).

Since we're posting pics of our homebrew pi rigs, here's the rest of my setup.



The loose wires at the bottom connect to a second DE0-Nano, which is currently off on litecon FPGA development duty. The white bundle is serial comms connecting to my homebrew FPGA boards  here, as also do the red/green/blues at the left (GPIO bitbang programming of the FPGA bitstream). The central pcb is a opto-coupler to link the raspberry pi serial port to the DE0-Nano(s), while the right hand PCB is a PSU regulator to bypass the DE0-Nano internal regulators and supply 1.2 Volts core power (otherwise the regulators just get way too hot as its drawing 2 amps). There was a fan blowing air at the DE0-Nano, but the noise kept me awake at night, so I'm living dangerously with passive cooling (FPGA package temperature is 80C, so die temp will be around 95C. And its still giving 35MHash/sec Cheesy ) Oh, and in case you're wondering the big diode between the choc blocks is dropping the incoming 3.3V power brick supply down to around 2.5V to reduce the thermal dissipation of the 1.2V regulator.

Heath Robinson and Rube Goldburg would be proud I think. Grommit too (he was the brains of the couple, you know).

4. Are you keeping track of HW expenditures vs. income? What is your estimation for ROI?

1). I mine multiple Scrypt coins and have it auto switch using a new app called Multi-miner.. Check it out, it's been amazing! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=248173.0
2). Have Switched PDUs (cut turn off and on outlet for lockups), Raritan KVM and VNC so I remotely control every level. It's 14 miles away, and I only go in for hardware failures.
3). Haven't automated selling coins, and since I'm hoarding LTC a bit for speculation, the converting to BTC depends on coin. FTC I convert daily, as with most Alts
4). Yes, all expenses are tracked for tax purposes. ROI was projected at 6 months back in April, factoring in selling equipment for 30% of original cost (I could easily sell for 80% now). My ROI also assumed we'd be at 1100 difficulty by September 1st, and already over 1000 now, so it's working out much better than projected.

Wow, people are still GPU mining?

Why wouldn't they be? I make over 2 BTC daily after converting the alts I mine to Bitcoins. While everyone else was spending money on ordering ASICs, I created a SCRYPT farm. I figure why take my army into the arms race for ASICs, I'll wait until the armies are weakened and build my army for much less money.





awesome farm

I agree, I have a small SCRYPT Farm in my house. Earning about 0.20 BTC converted per day with the hashing rate of 6.2 MH/s compare to my ASICs mining at 7.5 GH/s only earning me 0.07 BTC per day....

You do realize that 20,000W > 110A on a standard 120V line?

Do the sockets in that picture look like standard 120v plugs?

They look like 230/240v UK plugs to me Wink

I had an eye injury last August, and can't really tell. If they are 230, then I guess it would be a little more.

Hello World... Here are some pics of my setup... 1400KH Scrypt and 31GH Bitcoin (Although I have another 12GH in another setup)

Also have three blades on order to add to this by the end of the month.

The setup uses both CGminer and BFGminer
