Hardware Issues?
   1/10   = Major - significant issues that severely impact the performance or reliability of the miners
Refund Issues?

A simple link to your thread would have been cool but what a lot of people on this thread would love to hear about are the details like how are you handling heat extraction, whats your power distribution look like. How many Killawatts are your burning!Whats the heat like in a room full of miners like that. Is it deafingly load?

I've edited the post to point to our ANN thread. Sorry again.

You might want to have a look as there are some pictures of our 'Super Jupiter' kit on the ANN thread which are in the background of the Neptunes (I won't repeat here as it's 'old' kit and perhaps not that interesting.

I've texted the engineers to get the latest stats for you, and I'll come back with some details as soon as they tell me. Current powerload is around 1/4 megawatt from memory for megamine.com (with the same again coming soon),  and we use all natural cooling due to our location (60km south of the Arctic Circle).

The facility is run by our sister company Hydro66 (www.hydro66.com) and we are just one of their customers so I'll see if one of the guys from Hydro can pop in and tell you some of the details of the facility, but essentially they just take cold air from the outside, clean and purify it, sort out the humidity, run it over the kit, and then our miners face a 'hot asile' where the heat is extracted straight upwards and out the roof. They are building a new facility just over the road from us which will be 10MW initially and scales to 120MW......

We don't have 'hot asile' containment because interestingly the engineers usually complain about being cold - ambients even at the end of summer outside are around 10-13C so having the air moving naturally at quite a few m/s means it feels permanently chilly and they tend to wander around in fleeces and coats Smiley

That's a very impressive mining operation Joust!   Shocked

Just out of curiousity, what is your total estimated hashrate for Megamine?

Hi Hurricandave - Andy from Hydro66 here.

As joust mentioned it's all free air cooling. We have a very large (filtered) air inlet in the building side and then exhaust the hot air through the roof.  We have some chunky fans for the height of summer too (although we just had the warmest summer in 100 years and they didn't even break sweat).  The rest of the year the inlet temp is more than cold enough.

We're in the same part of the world (slightly further north) as Facebook's $1bn datacentre in Luleä.

We can support a few MW in our current facility. We'll be announcing something much bigger in the next few weeks.  

Surprisingly enough the noise level in the DC is pretty quiet - you can easily have a conversation at normal speaking volume.   Standing right next to the rigs you can feel some radiant heat - perhaps like a warm sunny day, but a few feet back and you are back at ambient.




Time spent on reconnaissance is seldom wasted.

 Arctic and Joust,  Thanks for the additional input its really appreciated on this thread.
   smracer has quite a few of those Neptunes as well and said he's using a 15,000 cfm upblast fan to remove the hot air from his operation. I would imagine even in the arctic you guys are moving quite a bit of air as well.

I see you have the Corsair 750M for 2 S3. I do have the Corsair CX600M with 2 PCI-e (on 1 cable) for 1 S3.
Question: Are your cables "hot" ?? I noticed that mine get pretty warm just with 1 S3 hooked up to it. NO OC!

Just wondering ...

Nope they are OK, but I have them also without oc just default frequency. I don't want to buy new PSUs Tongue

Well, I ordered an 8 Pin to 6 Pin connector. It may help. We'll see.

Kinda. There is a voltage drop going on with undersized cables, which causes the miner to pull more current to compensate which heats things up more.

Don't try running two miners off one cable.

I feel so outmatched.

at home, i have a 5570 that gets 63 MH/s(.063 GH/s) going to the slush pool. i run it when the PC is on. and I'm glad just to be getting that 64mh

at least I'm mining when I can when at school.

"I feel so outmatched."

you have no reason to.

how many people on earth - out of a population of somewhere around 7 billion - are doing better than you are?  two or three thousand?

i note that you can probably get $50 bucks for your 5570, and pick up a 5770 for an additional 60-70 dollars or so.  that would triple your hash rate.  40ish BTC/mo in slush's pool.

go for it.  you're a student:  it's not like you have to eat or anything... Smiley
And now my 200 mh/s gets a grand total!

0.0000001/day

Damn.

Time to shutdown your rig, not even worth the time to run cgminer or whatever program you are using..

yes. along the lines of what lightfoot said. each conductor(wire) is rated for so much current and wattage without warming noticeably. as you draw more than that they warm and the interaction Lightfoot mentioned starts to exponentiate.

the 8 pin to 6 pin will help. what type did you get though? i think the 8 pin youre thinking of is an EPS connector not pci-e which has a different pinout.

i had the same issue.  1 s3 on corsair 600--cables were super hot.  i swapped it out for a 1000w platinum antec--problem solved.
