So I've clicked through all 30 pages and I DIDN'T SEE ONE SUBMERGED SETUP.  I am dissapoint.

Everything I have read about submerged PCs assumes that the PC will have brief periods of use followed by extended cool-down periods. To make it work in a mining rig you would need to set up some sort of pump and radiator system but if you are going to go to that length you are better off just water cooling. Also, submerged components are more difficult to resell or reuse.
I wanted to do one, but just the mineral oil alone will cost $70-$100 (about $15-$20 a gallon), plus the cost of the pump, radiator, tubing, and container, etc. Then you have to worry about leaks, weeping oil (up the cords), and a big mess if you have to fiddle with any hardware.  IMHO, you MIGHT come out ahead on a large scale if you have enough oil, but you still have to cool it Sad

Well I'd have a large enough case to enclose several motherboards etc. and then have all cables connect to a breakout panel to prevent weeping.  As far as cooling goes, you simply pump the oil out of the case and down an inflatable slide/kiddie-pool.  a pump at the end of the slide in the kiddie-pool returns the oil and completes the circuit.  As far as cost goes, you simply have several women in white undergarments slip and slide down for several hours, wrestle, gyrate, and collect fees from onlookers in order to recoup the cost of oil and additional hardware.  After several weekend the mining rig will more than pay for itself, even with several difficulty increases.  Coffee filters can be used to collect any lost body piercings or hair scrunchies that my get lost along the way.

CoolerMaster CM690 Case w/ 6 Fans and soundproofing foam panels
Thermaltake 750W modular PSU
Scythe fan controller
Raid 0 with 3x Spinpoint F4's (320GB*3=960GB)

First setup, 9 6950's shaders unlock oc to 950. building a new 5 card rig to replace 5 of the single card rigs "trying to lower power use". The 4" duct is rain gutter from home depot thats connected to a 5000 btu window unit.


That's a very interesting approach to the airflow problem.

Also, such wall looks pretty cool I must confess.

Finally got my 4th 5830 working on this miner !  Got a great rack/shelf unit for $4.99 at target.  It was in the kitchen utilities section Smiley  Cards sit nicely on the rack with the pcie connector going through.
Hi  Smiley
how do you fix the cards on the rack?
TIA Smiley

Hi! I think you can go away now with dummy plugs since 11.7+2.5OCL already solved that limitation. I have 3 GPUs on a machine without crossfire bridges or dummy plugs. Nice rigs! I'll post mine when I get the chance. =)

here are mine Cheesy


[image of 10 Antec DF-85s]


Man that is just awesome. Please post more information.

So far it's 4x5870s, MSI 890FXA-GD70 mobo, Antec DF-85? That all makes sense. But how exactly do you keep it cool?

What are your cores/memory? MH/s? Temps?

It looks like you added a 120m side fan, that case must have amazing cooling to just need 1 more fan to run 4 of those cards.

They look amazing, thanks for posting!

sorry soory..i really had absolutely not time to egt here for posting answers,...but will post tomorrow..some special pictures..more explanations ! thank u !

in the moment they all run @ 950/300 but tis still getting too hot Cheesy avergae 405 mh/s!

Hi 
how do you fix the cards on the rack?
TIA

Wow, do you really need help with that? I would use: 1. baling wire   2. zip ties    3. duct tape

One of those has to work.

DF-85 !

I added an 120fan at the side...

itsd great..but i still had to get seperators inbetween the cards to optimize airflow and have 2 extra ac`s and 3 big standing fans!

Hey Cypher, What script and/or miner are you using in that one pic showing PuTTy?

No script, that's just command line tools.
