S9 plumed into home heating.
S3 for ambient room heat.
Interesting setup you got there- I like how you're using the heat from the S9 and S3 for heating. Lowers bills just a tiny bit but every bit helps. I'm guessing there's stuff below the miners so you suspended them, but I'm pretty surprised that you're still using S3s. I sold mine for S5s a while back as a small upgrade.
I have straight Electric heat here
and it costs us about 5 cents USD per KW.
So the S9 is essentially replacing a fraction of what the furnace would burn. It's -47 with wind chill here right now, so I consider the power it's burning as free, I'd be using it anyway lol
Only one of the S3s is running. Yes they are poor effeciency, but all I have. It was more of a matter of using the two left over PCI-E lines and getting a little ambient air.
We run an electric fireplace in the basement when we are down there to take the chill out.
So again the power the S3 uses is essentially free.
As for the suspended setup.
Yes I have a Freezer bellow it, and using a shelving unit for so little, seemed like a waste of space to me.
This allowed me to get it into a more solid location, and it looks cool
