This was my first rig 3x 5850 flashed to 5870 bios. hashing about 400mhash each.


I then decided to swap to LTC and FTC and build a proper miner. 4x 7950's running at 70degrees pulling 650-680khash each.


I ended up getting ROI and ALOT more by jumping onto FTC straight away then dumping soon as it hit btc-e at a VERY inflated price. Sold the rig for what i paid for the parts. down sized my Gaming PC back to one GPU and got me some Block Erupters (ordered 50 and paid $5AUD each) even though alot of people say they never get back ROI im sure i will get my $5 each back Smiley.


I also converted a 500watt ATX PSU into a power supply to feed my USB Hubs which i am still waiting on. All up it will give me 40amps on the 5v and 14amps on the 12v. Plenty of breathing space.This way i can run and connect them in any order or place and not have to worry about plug packs getting hot!




Its running 10x USB miners fine. once i get my other 4 hubs i will be organizing and setting them up properly and will upload more pics.


Very nice and neat, don't your graphic cards feels hot putting so close to each other?

Heat is always the issue for me.

Even when I space them out, the heat in the room goes up to.  Granted, 20GPUs running full force will do that.

Not much to look at, but pulls a steady 450Ghs overclocked. Within the sea of fans is a bitfury m-board with 12 h-cards plugged in. Disclamer: the images contain a shameless attempt of marketing somewhat unrelated goods.



Behind the rig is an open window, the ups cardboard is in place to prevent direct rainfall on the rig should winds blow in the exactly right direction at massive force.

I have soldered straight into the power lines in the hub which goto my psu. No issues yet but its only been a week. Once I have 5 going ill see I'd there are issues and if so I will upgrade to a brand name haha.

Regarding the gpus it sat in a 15degree c server room with my other rig and web server so cooling wasn't an issue. If I was purely ambient air then they would have been roasting haha.

Looks really dangerous to me, can the UPS cardboard really prevent rain?

How come some H-cards appear to have custom heat sinks and some don't?

Yes, the distance from the top fans to outdoors is about 50cm, it would actually take gale force winds at the exact right direction for drops to actually reach the cardboard. Some would consider the whole cardboard unnecessary.
How come some H-cards appear to have custom heat sinks and some don't?
I have a batch of ~100 more heat sinks on route. This all I could muster up to this point, cleared out a finnish webstore and got one batch from dealextreme.

Excelent lapping job!!!
I don't polish metals that quality since my college when we made samples for metallography!!!

Counting the cpu's improvements, I'm guessing 5-8C thanks in large part to the very uneven nickel plated finish I was dealing with. Smiley

Here it is after a few quick 600 grit sessions.


Then a few more...


x6 4.3 ghz Wprime, 43C


If I showed you the quad core temps, you wouldn't believe me. Cheesy

@Jay_Pal Tyvm Grin

Not bad at all considering I went straight to the 2000 grit after I ran out of the 600s. lol

so i spent some time rearranging my rig setup and got it up and running at 77.5GH (2 cards) before realising that i am pulling air through the tunnel, rather than pushing/blowing it. *facepalm*

Previously i was able to have semi-stable operation at 81GH (39.5-41GH per card) but the system kept dropping chips or a full card to zero. that fan setup was a lot more rickkity with 2-4 fans in use and creating slight vibration. I plan to watch the new setup overnight before either a) overclocking further or b) getting a second 230mm fan to increase airflow (and then overclock!)


24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!

It was nerd luv at first sight after I saw the review and it just happened to be on sale for only $35 (after MIR). Grin

Think thats overkill ? The 9900nt is cooling a 65w PII x3 720e. Tongue

Its unlocked AND overclocked 27%, the TDP will be much higher than 100 watts.

Anti-gravity miners, it seems.  Tongue
