Was going through some boxes earlier and found a Freezer 64 that used to be on at Athlon 3700+ years ago, thought 'it's a shame that'll never be used again'. I had been thinking recently of replacing the ramsinks that I'd had on the back of my BE...

My new rig, fresh from customs office.

it's not working yet, I think I have to connect power Wink

What did the guys at the Zoll say about that BFL? Smiley

roughly this:

customs girl: "What is in this package? What's so special about it?"
me (surprised): "It's a Bitcoin Miner, basically a computer"
customs girl: "Excuse my ignorance, but can you explain what it does"
me: "Uuurm. It makes calculations, mining Bitcoins"
customs girl: "So it's a computer?"
me: "Yes, has chips in it and a power supply and stuff"
customs girl: "You'll have to open the package and show me"
me (opens package): "See, a power supply, and this black box is the computer with chips in it"
customs girl: "I see, yes, ok. One computer. You'll have to pay 19% import VAT tax and probably customs duty".

customs duty turned out to be 0%, 19% VAT I had to pay as expected.

get a dynamo on the bike and you'll be fine Wink just need a voltage regualator and a internet connection Wink Cheesy

lol. Bike already has dynamo. I could just use android mining app from bfl with mobile connection. 70W will be hard to manage for my legs, though.

molecular, the interview with you in SPON 31.05.2011 was the start of my Bitcoin career.

I thought you are a rich man now.  Shocked

Bitcoins are easy to spend and "rich" is quite a relative term.

Good to hear I helped getting you into mining Wink

Then you can drive at the Tour deFrance and mine Bitcoin at the same time.

From touching the heatsink the one directly on top of the ASIC is completely cool, so is the end of the heatspreader.

Would anyone be interested in a set of the ASIC sink, a little VRM sink with thermal tape applied and a pre cut piece of 3M thermal tape to attach the other side of the stick to any heatsink.

I admit the fan really is overkill but Arctic F8's are silent at 5v, also an insulated bolt on one corner plugs perfectly into the pi headphone socket and a cushion on the opposite corner resting on the heatsink works well. I had already made the GPIO fan breakout for when the back was just covered in little ramsinks, they are now on the flat face of the mains adapter which was getting very warm. Found a piece of aluminium stock I've had for years and hot glue gunned the heatsink to it so it wouldn't wobble and to correct the height difference.

You are absolutely right too, TeamViewer to check, Moblie Phones to restart (actually I am starting to use a new device that restarts thru LAN), Web cameras to monitor, Fiber optic internet + 3G for safety, and a few temperature sensors around the room which have cool graphics and send me SMS-messages if they reach a warning temperature.

Sounds like you are well set up. Can you elaborate on the temperature monitoring systems you've set up, they sound relevant to my interests. Perhaps RPi based?

I use some USB temperature sensors from ebay, similar to this:
EBAY

What do you use to restart your rig from your cell phone?

This 5v relay, remove the vibrator motor, and connect it instead now when it vibrates it activates the relay.
It important that the relay is "+" activated not "-" like most of the 5v relays for Ardunos and shit.
btw the Arduno is perfect and for temperature measuring too.

My mining rig is a cardboard box (but it's that GOOD quality cardboard).

I cut vents in the sides, and sliced out a viewing window on top with a piece of plexi-glass taped over it (to avoid an Schrodinger's cat mysteries with the stuff inside).  Then I cut a crude hole on top and I have an "O2Cool" fan sitting on top of that.  You can buy these fans at Wal-Mart in the States for about $6.00.  They are USB powered, but come with a USB power adapter (only 500ma, so not good for much else).  It moves a decent amount of air for what I paid for it.  Keeps things pretty cool in there.



And inside of the box?  Just a said little $15 USB hub, that will be maxed out on power if I ever add a fourth block erupter.



It's a power house I tell you.

Those O2Cool fans are pieces of corn infested shit..

running non-stop they will last you maybe 3-4 months..  I've gone through 2.. on my last one..

Currently trying out one of those silverstone usb fans... not bad and is actually rated at 50000 lifetime hours

Also - yeah, I def wouldn't put USB BEs inside a cardboard box...

Even sitting a AC powered fan against flammable materials is a bad idea. Just ask any fire fighter.

I'm sorry if I am stating the obvious but the setup is probably a joke or an attempt to parody people that share pictures of their setup.

If not, I am sorry for offending the original poster but putting 3 BEs in a big box is an hilarious cool idea!

100000 hours!  Cool
And it gloooooows!

Have one of them, but they are hard to get. Better and cheaper to build your own by cutting off the plug of an old usb cable or phone charger and connect the ends to a new, strong pc case fan

Just look at the airflow path, most of it just bypasses the block eruptors. He needs to mount them on some sort of tower, in the throat of the fan air intake. I'd have used meccano in my time, but that's a bit uncool these days (great stuff though, used to have it in our labs at uni). Perhaps that kinetix stuff, or even lego (comes with cool figurines too, can set up a nice montage to display the BE's in their mining glory).

Considering the heat from the ASIC on the BE basically all goes in to the PCB, you wasted your time and effort putting a heat sink on top of the chip.  It's like mounting your heat sink to the back of your motherboard in your PC.
