How about a panoramic?




OMG! This is lush! But hope you are next to Apple's Data Centre in Carolina, you can ask em for cheap electricity!  Grin

To give credit where credit is due, BFL did it first  Tongue

And in the interests of posting pictures, here's 300gh in my solar shed.



A close up of the equipment



Yes, the water cooled jallies are holding up fine. And finally, a wide angle shot of the sheds. Good solar porn here.

That is quite the setup.  Awesome solar panels.
How do you store the electricity to run when it is dark?

Most people feed back into the grid so that the solar panels just act as an offset to the power bills

Means you get a 100% stable supply even when its cloudy/dark and you don't have to spend thousands on batteries to store the power

Very true but his looks like it is not connected to anything.
I know up here people have some cool setups that store a few days of electricity for constant stable power.

Not really impressive these days, 4x 7790's @ ~1 MH/s (scrypt) using 350 watts (system) (68 to 70 watts per card). Not even worth the time/money to build a case so it sits on the floor. At least it ROI'd a long time ago.

Depends. Main system is grid-tie with Sunny Boy 1800 and 700 inverters. However some of the panels keep a set of 200ah*24v batteries in the shed topped off for emergency power with a 700 watt inverter. If power goes out I can switch that in to run the fridge, internet, and coffee makers. Very important.

I can also put a 900 watt rotary inverter on the electric tractor. 36 volt by about 120ah capacity using flooded NiCDs.

Probably a letteropener.

I got hacked by some Syrian faggot and now I have negative feedback.

First post. Don't hate.

This isn't super scalable but its an idea I came up with and im trying to see if I want to pull the trigger and make it.

let me know what you think. CRITICS welcome.

Thanks.

Limitations & Constraints:
Garage environment with very limited floor space.
window for exhaust, Separate window for inlet
CANNOT HEAT THE GARAGE whatsoever.
CANNOT LEAVE DOOR OPEN
Must filter air

Goals:
Divide all air so that no video card is getting air that has been heated by other components.
Reasonable airflow for low noise
100% filtered,
Positive pressure

Basic concept:
__________________
|-----Exhaust------|
|---------8 Cards--|
|_______\________|
|- 8 Cards--\------|
|__________\_____|
|----------/-------|
|-- FAN--/--FAN---|
|________________|
|---AIR FILTERS---|
|________________|

Air starts at the bottom, Passes through the fans.
It is then segregated, One fan feeds the lower most cards, The other fan feeds the upper most cards.
The air is continued to be segregated until the top rack where the top cards exhaust their heat.
The air is then piped out of a window.

4.5+ Terrahashes. Not clearly seen is 4 units in stacking crates to the left side (these are for sale in the Toronto area, by the way - trying to offload the crates for cheap to avoid tearing them down to go on shelves) plus an S2 on the bottom shelf

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!

my 2c:   go with 12 cards instead of 16. you can get 6 per mobo with windows 8, thus eliminating the need for two mobo/ram/cpu/hdd assmeblies, simplifying the control/monitoring, and allow all 12 cards to fit on a single shelf. 

ps: dont forget to consider monitor placement for WHEN you need direct access

Having fans push through multiple sections will really reduce the flow rate more than you probably expect. If you are going for mid-range GPU (R9 270 or 280) i'd suggest you use the higher end cards (R9 290) so that you can have fewer motherboards/CPU/RAM/risers which saves money and hastens ROI. My suggestion for air-flow would be to have 2 shelves of miners with fans and filters on the left side of each level. The air flow would pass across the shelf to the right and exhaust at the same shelf level. You may need to combine the two hot airflows as you don't really show how your vents will connect to the outside world.

If you fan-force this setup then you will need a substantial opening in the garage to allow the pressure to equalize, ie. leave a window open. Although some sheds are poorly sealed anyway especially around the roofspace depending how it was constructed.

Also re the above comment you can also get windows 7 to work with 6 (or more) cards using modded drivers, it takes some messing around: https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=11761.0

Perhaps you did not see the pictures? or maybe theres a problem with photobucket.

I actually already have 4 rigs each with 4 cards.
Two rigs are 1200w 280x rigs,
One rig is an 850w 270x rig,
One rig is 1000w 2x270x and 2x280x.

I have them in normal rigs where all 4 cards are parallel to each other with normal risers. Fans blowing through the cards. But temps are difficult to keep under 75 with this setup. I would prefer my gpu fans not spin ridiculously fast 24/7.

Each shelf will have hole saw holes drilled into it in the same shape as the fans on the card. The video cards will face downward so that the only air sucking into the cards are cool air from the fans below. no recirculating air from the video cards exhaust.
I will also have slots cut to allow cool air to pass over the mobo and power supply so they do not heat soak.

The clear separations in the image i posted divide the airflow between the two shelves.


Also, Regarding the bolded text about combining the airflow and exhausting the air. the air combines at the top shelf. cold air is isolated till it reaches the cards on the top shelf then both mix and exhaust together. It will be directly exhausted out a window. There will be either 1 fan or 2 fans in the window. the intake will be from another opened window on the other side of the garage.
