I think that you shouldn't put paper, carton or anything easily inflammable near your rig, don't think?

lots of guys build rigs on top of old motherboard boxes, plywood, and other materials, this is no different. I've seen  really nice rigs made entirely from wood. And  no, i don't think it's that dangerous. Everything is fuse and breaker protected, and we build with flammable materials in our homes and offices all the time.

It would have to heat up to 200-300-400c before it caught fire. Even if the cooling failed the computer would crash/shut off long before that. The fan would melt off long before that.

Black asphalt in the summer is probably hotter and I'm not aware of cardboard bursting into flames.

The problem is not that the computer is going to act like a stove and start the cardboard on fire via heat transfer, but that if the computer happens to catch on fire, it's going to spread easily via the cardboard.

Take it from someone who's seen a lot of bitcoin mining accidents in his day.

Ehh, No big deal. There are about 50 different flame proofing treatments for cardboard on the market. You just paint / spray the products on thick enough to penetrate the cardboard, let it dry, and the cardboard will no longer support a flame. I think it's totally over kill, in reality, but it's cheap and easy to do.

New prototype venting.


I'm liking the how effective it is.

Monday I'm moving two more rigs into the same style open frame cases, stacking them all, and making a
permanent and less craptastic manifold for the blower.

Do you have a link to buy a blower fan like that?

This is our final setup, two rigs with four 5830 each. All cards currently clocked at 950Mhz, hottest card at 69°C (The one in the middle at the bottom).
We had them all four squeezed together on the board but they just got too hot (80°C @ 900Mhz), so I built this frame to rise one card up and also fix the others in place.

yes those are lego...and duplo...It's a holdover until I get some time to build the wood frame.  Two 6970's at ~360MH/s on stock voltage and one 5830 at 270MH/s, also on stock voltage...all running on linuxcoin.  Using the GPU fans @ 50% they all hover around 73C in my basement drawing 720 watts.

Kick. Ass.

I say a few dabs of super-glue and forego the wooden frame all together Wink

You need one of these running linux coin. Smiley
I used to make and sell them, but it's too time consuming as I hand make each one.

Mounted on plywood.
The frame (GPU suspension) is made from old STABIL Metal Building Kit parts I inherited from my dad and borrowed from my 8yo son.  Kiss

A fourth GPU is forthcoming, as are two big-ass case fans that I will somehow mount on this so they blow inbetweeen the cards.

I will add a third dummyplug and put that thing into a friends basement for free electricity, remote-controlled with logmein.
the cards are 6950 (1GB unflasheable) running at 840core / 800mem for 1050mHash/s altogether.

Like the materials you used -- very functional while being inexpensive.

I mean, dont get me wrong - nice setup. But the return on investment is a joke, or? Below 30 or so graphjics cards is makes hardly any sense to go through this trouble Wink

No.

Mining with 3.

Outstanding order 77 x 6970.

Starting with 16 computers, 2 racks full Wink

Wink So, not 30 Wink

Even that is not a really good income, but it is worth renting a room and going through all the trouble to get a good setup and industrial power Wink

So, I see this as a starter Wink

I wish we could post photos of our racks so you could see what a serious mining farm looks like, but they are in a secure, professional hosting facility that does not allow photography.
