Someone asked me to take a pic of the $6 Shoe Rack Miner, so I thought I might as well throw it up in this thread as well, since I haven't posted any pics yet.

This is 2 of my Rigs, a 4x6950 Machine and a 5x5830 Machine a la $6 Wallmart Shoe Rack stand.....lol

The text output at the bottom of the pic is a screenshot of the Network API Monitoring Script I am using with CGMiner (thanks to jjimmy_64 for a great template)

Dexter you have forced me to upgrade my 10GH/s sawhorse juryRIG monstrosity.

I thought your rig was so cool that I showed it to .... wait for it .... my wife.  

Her response was "Why don't you do that?". DOH! Smiley

One question.  What are the specs on your AC unit?  I assume it is a dedicated unit not used for the rest of the residence.  I mean if you are pulling 12KW at the wall that is >40K BTU/hr which requires some "real" heat transfer.

Hmm. I'll bet you are too far away from me, since I don't want to ship it, but I have a rack for sale. It is a nonstandard 27" from post hole to post hole horizontally, and that would make it easier to fit miners in (instead of the usual 19").


Wonder If I ought to fill it with miners though?

EDIT: It is 30 U high.

That is a nice case.  Almost perfect size for a mining farm.  I think I could get 15 to 20 GH worth of 5970 in there.

The shipping would be brutal though.

I figured on removing the rear door, and leaving the perforated front one on. Proper fan design should keep the air moving. Perhaps box fans on the back.

I'd take out the upper part too because heat always goes up

The AC Unit is a Mitsubishi R2 Series Outdoor Unit PURY-P200-300YHM-A with 2 x 14 KW cooling power 4 Way ceiling cassettes PLFY-VBM-E


http://www.mitsubishi-electric-aircon.de/eng/citymulti_uebersicht_innen.php
http://www.mitsubishi-electric-aircon.de/eng/citymulti_uebersicht_aussen_r2.php#wr

This Unit only cool with each ceiling cassettes  one cluster a secondary AV unit cool down the room (size 30m²)
If it is under 5 degree out side (at night or winter) additional Fans will cool down the room with fresh air the max low temperatur is fixed to 2 degree inside

The Power is a nice question  Grin
let me introduce it with a picture



so the connection is 3 phaseal 230V in the middel are only 2 miners connected because the free space at the bottom of the cabinet may i will add 2 miner later.
so all in one we have 23A +10A + 20A but not constantly mostly with a variability of 2-3 A.
so we have 53A * 230V = around 12190 W so around 1219W per Miner.

The miners are doing 1960 - 2340 Mhash/s that belongs by the room temperatur so if we have outside -2 degree an additional Fan cool down the room to max 5 degree
if this is reach the miner could be pushed more.

So over a month the average MHash/s would be 2100 mean 4200 per row

For all which want to have a look to the internal draft maschine please check the picture below how you can see enought

EPIC! Even includes air conditioning. Your power must be free, or VERY cheap.

the Led´s in the dummy plugs are not really usefull for everybody. they do the only job to show me if there is a card damaged.
for the reason that it is very cold and drafty in the room and that i´m very sluggardly i decide to install the led´s
because so i can see without open the glass door between the rooms that every card is ok. if there is a card doing not enought hashes i need only restart the miner by remote and to 98% the led will not light if the card is damages after the miner has restart.
I am interested in what kind of contact plugs connected LEDs?!

Force air cooling.  If you force cold air IN unless you trapped a blackhole inside the hot air will be forced out.  Now you are right if you just slapped together some shelves and cards that would be bad.  It would require some "ducting".  

Don't laugh at my ASCII "art".
Code:

hot air out pulled out
 ^
| |------------------------|
| <-  bank of GPUs     <-  |
| |----------------------| |
| <-  bank of GPUs     <-  |
|------------------------| |
                         | |  
                          ^ (cold air forced in)

All the ^ are fans indicating direction of airflow.
Only two banks shown but more could be used.
Hooking all the fans to a fan controller with some temperature probes in each bank could be used to optimize cooling.  Upper bank would need higher airflow because air is lazy.

Mine on Linux, you'll never have to deal with dummy plugs.

But those LEDs look so cool!

Aye, those leds are cool as heck. You could probably also expand on that to wire it to trigger something to reset, etc if power drops to the led.

And windows does not require the dummy plugs any more either with 11.4+. Maybe sooner, but that was the version I first used that did not require them.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Sorry, don't mean to show off... ok maybe a little  Cheesy
My first one, might be for sale. Uses 6 x 5" extractor fans, 4 as intakes; 1 in the top ducted down to the middle of the gpus, and 3 on the opposite side blowing air onto the back of the gpus. Then 2 fans sucking the hot exhaust heat from the front of the gpus.

And my latest creation, same kind of idea as the first one but much more refined and awesome looking. Using 3 x 6" high pressure long life fans, 4 spigot intakes that are split 2 fans to each two sections, then 1 fan on spigots and ducting extracting all 4 outlets.


Got a 5870 out on miner1 and hoping for a replacement soon then ill have to do something to sort out the cooling on the second 5870 on miner1 as its a bit high.

Air in, air out, as simple as that  Smiley

Yeah your rigs are the inspiration for the ideas I got in my brain.  I was thinking of having the twist of mounting MB "standing up" so the GPU "exhaust" (I use 5970s exclusively) points "up".   Best way to describe it would be blade server meets mining rigs. Smiley  Cold air would flow under the bottom of MB, be pulled into GPU intake, warmed up, and blown out the top where it would have nowhere to go except the exhaut out. 

I wanted to makes some changes to my garage anyways and now my wife has seen other people have "organized" rigs it might happen soon rather than later.

That could work, depending how many motherboards you have in your rack and how you separate them and airflow, my only concern would be the motherboard temperatures. I went for the simplest option to cool mine and my motherboards stay around 40C.
People say that hot air rises, which is true to an extent, but you can manipulate it with fans and ducting to go where ever you want.

PS: Invest in a big box of smoke pellets like these:

They are great for working out what your airflow is doing.
