I was looking through the thread for ideas for mounting  ASICMINER blades but didn't see anything other than the guy with the production Rackmount case.   What are the "blade people" using to mount and cool overclocked blades?

Cheers! Grin

Strictly correct, but its actually 427 Celcius http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/2015404

... and all because of a minor error by Ray Bradbury (great writer though)

Anybody in science and engineering would like to, but politicians don't want to upset the less intelligent people.  Change scares them.

Same problem in the UK. We got started with metrication in the 1970s, then got all hung up half way thorough, leaving us with a right dog's dinner of a mess. Petrol in litres, milk and beer in pints, but pre-packed milk in litres, spirits/wine in millilitres, roads in miles and yards, but heights in feet and metres (stops the continentals crashing into bridges), meat and veg in kilos (but also priced up in pounds), standard pack sizes in kilos, or (soft-metricated) pounds at 908g ... I could go on.

And I may have been wrong about Ray Bradbury. seems to be some disagreement about the auto-ignition temperature of paper according to that popular online encyclopedia (see what I mean).

Anyway OT, perhaps we should stop there?  Undecided

I do some dodgy stuff, but that just looks a fire hazard.

I have taken some cost effective precautions to avoid a fire.  I filled a milk jug with used cooking oil, and it rests just on top of the box.  If the heat causes the box to ignite, it will melt the bottom of the platic jug and extinguish the flames in a non-conductive coating of fry oil.

Because this cooking oil is used, it provides a few benefits.  1) It is nice for the environment.  2) It's free materials.  3) Even though your mining rig is on fire, you can't deny how much it smells like french fries (and that's a great smell).

The only problem I can see here is the false positive that a smoke alarm would play, so I have disabled that to prevent any unnecessary panic.

Those look like various IBM redundant PSU. At least 1460 watts, I'd say. FYI you can get 2000 watt bladecenter PSU on ebay pretty cheap! ($60 or less).

here it would cost about 550€/day minimum just for electricity - while making only 400something €  Undecided

Let's say you spent the low-end of $200 for your 7850 cards.  Those *alone* would cost you $120,000.00.  Never mind the motherboards, CPU, RAM, ELECTRICITY, etc.  You may mine upwards of $580.00 daily ... but that's still a pretty long payoff.

What I want to know is, where did you get the startup capital to do this?  Where do you buy 600 MSI cards?  I am assuming that took you a while.  I would think that even high volume retailers don't keep that quantity of a particular card on-hand.  And as others are wanting to know - what does your electric bill look like?  I hear stories of "free electricity", but trust me that doesn't last.  Even if your rental contract doesn't have an abuse clause, any judge in his right mind would sign the eviction order to throw you out.  And if you live in the States, you can expect a visit from the DEA.  :-)

My latest setup after I found a 2nd hand heatsink. Managed to bring it down by 2°C and make it lesser HW error.
Using the cable tie trend, managed to put them together

hey hey,It is in china,Electricity is cheap,and you can find a place do it easy ,example Small Hydropower or small factory.This began in 2012 with some people, the cost has been recovered in April 2013 , and buy 600 cards is very easy here(because so many cards are made in china...).

Electricity is $ 0.07 / KWh, 6 * 7850 probably consumes at 900W, so one day the electricity is 2160KWh * $ 0.07 = 151.2 USD per day, Electricity is about one-third of income.
