This is most of my farm.

32 S1s
9 S2s
2 Dragons
2 Jupiters
2 SP10s

Total = ~22 TH/s

Holy shit! How old that farm is? Cheesy i bet u got pretty high amount of coins from it?
Just big WOW  Shocked

If you pay what I pay every month for colo, you would be making a killing!
How much you pay for colo for those 22 Ths?

Was but the room turned into a furriness hitting 47Degrees, the A/C units are shit anyone any recommendations on cooling that doesnt involve proper DC grade heat extraction and recovery?

For that amount of power I would be paying ~$2600/month.  If you want more details let me know.

That is proprietary information, so I'll never tell. I am very happy with the cost and quality of this co-location facility, and it's close to where I live.

fark thats awesome
very professional setup.
I'm not familiar with mining hardware, so i will ask... what typa devices are those ?
great job either way Smiley

I think you will need some server grade Water Cooled AC system, which will not dry the air to the point, that heat exchange will suffer. Hope this is helpful. Google it.

Evaporative cooling is cost effective if you're in really dry climate. Or else you have a choice to pay quite a lot more to cool everything with refrigerated cooling ("AC"). You'd need to install a huge capacity system for that many miners.

The other option is to actively ventilate the rooms with very high flow of air from outside. You can calculate how much airflow (or air exchanges) will be needed if you know the heat output of all your miners, the heat capacity of air (google) and your typical outside temperatures.

Actually I realized something: If I put my miners by a window with their exhaust fans pointing out, the room does not get hotter than ambient and they act as nice little exhaust fans. Only heat in the room is from the Corsair power supplies. Likewise my water-cooled units are running with the radiators in the window, fans blowing out.

Then a normal window fan is in the opposite side of the house blowing inward to pressurize the room and draw the coolest air from the north side of the house.

This has solved my summer heat problems; no AC needed.

yeah gonna try that in my bsmt in upper midwest usa .so ...Aug 1/2 Sept may be an issue....may lose a bit in eff on the miner due to heat those months..but will likely make it up with a/c costs of NONE later (ie heat for the house also a bit of a $$$ saver) at least till Dec when the wheels fall off on the btc miner at that point ie unplug as diff is too high

worse case will make small room/closet put miner on high shelf under bsmt window toss small a/c unit in window blows over miner and do your fan at other end of the bsmt to keep air flow thru the bsmt

or

i could  just say the heck with it and sell the beast for the btc it prob would make on ebay heh (ebay bitcoin miner buyers are crazy)

good to have options

Its funny to look at that then go to the activemining thread where they promised 170TH but cant seem to pass 100TH because of cooling and power issues. All while using hardware they produced/sell and is 20% more efficient than the dragons
http://eligius.st/~wizkid057/newstats/userstats.php/1DJpsvnM7xTnQbWEhLYyCyfxQyxwupEzCa

that dragon farm looks sweet, and is truly the new ASIC porn Smiley

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

This is what I thought when I saw the pictures. I was laughing very hard when I saw the mining gear and the two little air cons on the wall.  Grin Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
I pretty much had the same experience in 2011 with the company which outfitted our new offices and therefore the server room (5 racks only, with normal computing gear ... no miners). I told them, when I looked at it (almost the same units you have), that this is not going to work. 3 kW cooling compared to 12 kW power consumption for computation. It took them 2 iterations (!!!) to believe me, upgrading twice, then replacing it entirely with 20 kW cooling systems. They could have had this done at a fraction of the price they paid in the end, if they would have asked someone who has a clue (not me, I'm not an expert in cooling, but I know when something is hugely undersize/estimated).

So my advice to you is: Do not toy around with stupid cheap ideas! Get an expert opinion and just spend the money once and not 3 times with BS crap. You can reuse the small units you have in your house (at home), they are good to cool around 50 to 60 sqm where people work/live (but not computing gear, except the odd PC or laptop).

Good luck!

Hi this picture is a cooling joke as if they are S2 (am not so sure)  they produce LOT of heat depending where they are located(close to the equator or not). I remember a guy had some miners in Alaska but when prompted for the temperatures he had it was -40 to -20 so at this levels I dont know what is needed.Some users have commented that S1 does not like so much extreeme cold but for S2 I dont know.
Running some of my Antminers S1 in the winter time with temps 0-7c did not have any kind of problems with heat as in the room I had them was a window always open.

Its not hard, work out how much power (energy) you are pulling out and then get the equivalent amount of cooling power.

Heres some ideas to get you going:

Heat is measured in either British Thermal Units (BTU) or Kilowatts (KW). 1KW is equivalent to 3412BTUs.

Most aircon units are measured in BTU's so I'll work in that unit.

Equipment BTU = Total wattage for all equipment x 3.5
Room Area BTU = Length (m) x Width (m) x 337
Lighting BTU = Total wattage for all lighting x 4.25

There seems to be no windows, or people working in there permanently so you can probably leave those calculations out.

Total Heat Load = Room Area BTU + Windows BTU + Total Occupant BTU + Equipment BTU + Lighting BTU

So you need enough aircon cooling to handle that amount of heat.

I'd say on equipment alone you would need minimum 100KW or 350K BTU's of cooling

It only appears that you have two of them, thats max 50K BTU if you have the most powerful (25K BTU) wall-split units, so you would need 14 of them.
