Nice set up, but I hope the S1 is undervolted, otherwise I can't see why running a S1 today would be worth it.  An S3 will use the same wattage as an S1.

My electricity includes in my apartment's flat rate rent. S1 is actually slightly overclocked  Cheesy
Seems like stealing.  your apartment's flat rate rent is not include bitcoin miners.
No.
That Venezuela -case where some big miners got caught, that was stealing.
At least, based on what I've heard.

I'm not violating my rent contract.

It's such a grey area to define "stealing" your electricity when it's included in an agreement.
In any rental you really can't modify any wiring and certainly can't increase your supply legally, meaning the miners you could run *safely* would be relatively paltry and the consumption pretty low, not to mention the fact you are averaging your consumption with a whole building and I have a hard time really calling it theft.
All that said, doing anything of the sort without consulting the landlord is a risky venture as I'm sure some would see it as grounds for eviction (operating a business in the unit, wiring/fire concerns, etc.)

Regardless of who is paying for it (your landlord in this case), a more efficient machine would serve you better.  Get a used S3 (they're cheap!) and for the same wattage you get 2-3x the hash rate.

I'm saving it to see if I can upgrade it by possibly buying the community miner boards in the future (Sidehack).

Updated pic: 5 s7, 2 s5. all plugged into 5 20amp sockets.

There is a 24inch drum fan against the back wall blowing right at the miners. The 6inch duct brings in cold air from the AC. The orange blower is attached to a 4in dryer hose that pumps some of the heat outside and some into the finished side of the basement where the air return is.

it aint pretty but it works.

Thanks for sharing interesting setup.  Does it not get expensive to use AC to cool down you gear?   I went to just fan's pushing lots of CFM's in my mining area AC was just expensive when before I set up my miner  area for me to use to cool gear.

got it for really really cheap off flea bay.

I have the ac set to have the house at 67, the tstat is on the first floor so the house stays pretty normalized. All I did was cut a 6 inch hole in one of the pipes that leads to a vent that is closed year round anyway as it blows right by a set of bay windows on the first floor. so the air is simply diverted down in front of the miners instead of just hitting a closed vent.

that 24inch barrel fan is rated at 7700cfm. the problem is with the equipment being in the basement on my unfinished side (as that is the wall that shares the breaker box) there isn't a lot of "fresh" air to blow at the miners so even with the fans I needed a way to introduce air that wasn't all ready heated by the miners.

I would like to get another 5 more miners but at this point idk if I can remove all the heat fast enough. might play with bundling the output pipes together and attaching a exhaust fan to them to blow the heat either into the finished side of the basement or outside some how.


also been thinking of putting the barrel fan that is blowing at the miners putting that on the hot side to move the air away from the miners and using the orange fan to blow heat outside. but then I don't have a fan to blow air at the miners.


not sure which would keep the miners cooler blowing air at them or removing the heat they output.

the orange blower, outputs into 3 ways?

can you take a closer pix of the blower and how it splits into 3?

I have a similar idea.... but your looks more "cost effective"  Grin

sure will take a pic tonight when i get home. till then. here is the piece i bought.

http://www.amazon.com/Impact-Carpet-Dryer-Ducting-Adapter/dp/B00IK3QHX8?ie=UTF8&keywords=Carpet%20Dryer%20Ducting%20Adapter&qid=1458829666&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

It claims to fit only the cobra but it fits perfect on mine. the knobs on either side are the spring loaded rods with hooks on the end. so you can attach it to the grill of the blower.

The middle hole is attached to the dryer duct work. the right side (closest to camera) is open and blows towards a door that separates finished from unfinished side in the basement. the last hole is capped forcing the air into the other holes.

I have the ac set to have the house at 67,
Holy cow, you keep your house like a refrigerator!  My AC is set to 78*, it would run 24/7 for almost the entire year at your temp!  Hell, my heater comes on at less than 73*...

not sure which would keep the miners cooler blowing air at them or removing the heat they output.
Priority 1 should be to remove the hot air, cool air supply should be #2.

i dont like being hot. You can only take off so many clothes. you can always put on more. It pretty much stays 68-70 in my house year round. (live in ohio).

the heat is only for pretty much on december/january/feburary with AC for the rest of year.


Ya i figured heat removal was key 1 might play with barrel fan on the hot side. and move the orange to the cold side and unhook the "exhaust" pipe to the outside.

Alright, after 3 months of research and planning, some seed money, and an immense amount of elbow grease I can now officially call myself a Miner.


Welcome, to my Wizard Box!



Framing the box, mounting the electrical (8x240v, 2x120v, 1xCat5e)




Sub-panel run from main (60A 240v line to 125A sub) wiring finished and drywalling the interior



Soundproofing/Fire-resistant insulation



Box closed (for now, still have to finish the lid)




Woo! Mining!



Ductwork going in

Intake manifold



Exhaust manifold




Cold air intake and 8" exhaust (Still have to add the T to draw from the house cold air return directly above the 5" duct)



Miners and power supplies arrived in 3 days flat.




FULLL POOOOOWWWEEEEERRRRRR!




All assembled, sound is minimal, still have some work to tie in the exhaust to both the house heating and an external exhaust for the summer. All told by far the funnest project I've undertaken in a long time. Hoping to get another 4 miners by the end of this year, with the halving coming up I'm just waiting to see what happens to prices.

thats an awesome setup!

if you have winter in your country, you can easily use your miners and reduce heating costs!

wow -- first time I have seen a 3 way blower before -- this is gives me a few ideas for cooling project - thanks!


that was actually the initial reason I bought it for was to buy those orange attachments (at rear of miners) for the front of the unit and blow cooler air at them from a part of the basement that wasn't so hot.

but with temps in the mid 80s down there. they turned into exhaust attachments and an exhaust nozzle attachment to move some of the heat outside.

still in the design process for the whole area. been thinking of putting the 4in exhaust pipes into some kind of reducer to attach them to an inline fan that pumps all the heat outside.

Brilliant !

Although I would have placed the intake at ground level (with a dust filter) where air is maybe a few degres colder Smiley

Behold, my first ETH rig - BRUTUS -

5 x MSI R9-390 (about 28MH each x 5 = 140MH, no overclocking yet)
Pool: about 3.5-4 coins per day at Dwarfpool. Moved to ethpool.org, 5 coins every 1.5 days
Asrock H81 BTC Pro motherboard on Windows 8.1 Pro
Minimalist Celeron Dual core CPU with Crucial 4GB x 2
Samsung 850 Pro 120GB SSD
EVGA 1300w x 2 (next rig will use EVGA-1600w)
Custom open-cage rack
USB cable - PCI risers

Credits: thanks to "thedreamer" for helping me out with my first rig.
Note: I can't get the 6th x GPU working...  Angry

I am working on my next ETH rig, OLIVE....
