Here it is, I finally got around to getting the camera out.
This is my home made/bodged/ghetto cabinet I threw together one weekend.
It was an old glass cabinet I found in a skip which I ripped all the glass out apart from the door and replaced with some perspex I had lying around.
It cost me nothing to make, apart from buying the bathroom extractor fans.
4 x 5870's in the top & 2 x 6990's in the bottom.
I had some real trouble cutting that perspex with a jigsaw causing some splits and cracks (easily fixed with good old super glue) Until I discovered some spray grease and covered the blade and perspex to keep it cool while cutting.
And yes, that's a pair of my mothers tights I stole to use as air filters!
I salvaged an old computer case for the hdd bay & the power switches for the side. (it was such a pain leaning inside and using a piece of plastic to flip the switch)
You can't really see from the pictures but I used to use cardboard to wedge the 5870's apart for airflow, but I have upgraded to a length of meccano which works perfectly (hence the little meccano spanner)
This is running happily in my garage which is about 30m away from my house, I bought some old routers off ebay and set them up as access points to get internet in there.
5870 1: 985/300 458mhs 72C
5870 2: 940/300 437mhs 65C
5870 3: 940/300 437mhs 60C
5870 4: 940/300 437mhs 63C
6990 1: 920/600 413mhs 72C
6990 2: 920/600 413mhs 71C
6990 3: 920/600 413mhs 73C
6990 4: 920/600 413mhs 69C
All fans are at 85% and ambient room is around 25C
I've just finished my second cabinet, I had some 5970s come in and thought I should expand a little and combine everything to take up less space in my garage.
Maybe I will sell the other one on ebay
Sorry for the crap picture quality, it is taken on my mobile phone and I have literally just finished it, I might have to tweak a few things here and there but I was excited to show you guys
It currently holds 1x 6770, 1x 6990, 6x 5870 and 6x 5970
1000m3 air in via 2 fans split between each 2 sections, 500m3 air out via the 4 exhaust ports.
I have only had it mining for around 30 minutes so far, so I won't quote temperatures just yet, but its looking good so far. (Will have more time this weekend to play around with it and get some proper pictures and temperature readings)
