If you look closely, those fans are facing with the airflow up and out. You can tell by seeing the crossbars that connect the fan motor to the housing which is usually on the outlet side.

So those are probably second fans with the factory default fans on the bottom.  They are situated the "right way".

Ya I was about to say they could have just flipped the fans

Fans are much less effective in suck position. You would have to make the tunnel over the heatsinks air tight.

Unless they are pumping cold air through the channel they are sitting on. Its really quite a nice solution.

10 gridseeds and 1 R9 290 Windforce running on the PC.
2 antminer S1s each with their own 500w PSU, just in case one dies I only lose 1 miner and not both.



Couldn't help but laugh at the smoke alarm Smiley  A good precaution but I just pictured that all going up in flames, haha.

Actually that is rly smart, did not see anybody done that . What a smart man Cheesy

would be really clever to wire it up to a relay for your power bars/outlets.  Detector smells smoke, all your power to the miners is cut off to prevent fueling the fire (and further melting/burning wires). Of course a false alarm would cause a halt to mining until resolved


It's actually an IRIS smoke detector and the whole setup is on IRIS to turn off if the smoke alarm triggers....I get text messages and emails if it triggers Smiley About the best I can do! IRIS is sold at Lowes, it's full home automation for about $300....Should get it.

Here are some pictures to show how awesome iris is, tracks electrical usage, remote monitoring, control your home thermostat, it's like adt pulse but WAY cheaper!

You can set 'magic' so if smoke detector 1 goes off, you turn off controls 'Antminers' and 'Gridseeds'. Or if backdoor contact is opened, turn on downstairs light (besides sounding the alarm) and you receive texts and emails whenever something happens Smiley

Here is a link to check out IRIS

Sweet, but I would want something that is not tied to either a monthly service or an outside web site. Wonder if I can host it myself instead of the "cloud".

Probably not. Time to write my own I guess. :-)

They do, search for z-wave devices, then you have to find open source software to link everything, but it's possible. I'm lazy and the $10 a month bill hits one of my credit cards every month, not even sure which lol. I think it's a necessity for bitcoin mining, be able to track electric usage, and with gpu rigs, sometimes you get a random blue screen or cgminer might die, just checking the electric usage on the mobile apps you can tell if you have a problem, then might as we team viewer in and reboot!

go ahead those wires had to be tamed!

if I did it again I would wire them up with it split in two halves and then connect the circle together.  Wiring it while it was a circle tower was tough with big hands but patience got it done.. also my package came with really long DC power cords that I just balled up and wrapped.. shorter wires will go a long way making it easier. But as you see there is plently of space in the crate to take even miles long of wires


the risers are M3 Male x M3 Female Hexagonal Thread PCB Standoff Spacer 50mm Body Length
i got them from Amico on Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AO4332O/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


also, have a stack of twist ties to set some pitch lengths on the connector ends, (3 pairings and 2 pairings) that makes the connections less prone to pop off
