I ran a number of 5830s out of the garage over the summer and asides from a thick layer of pollen and a few mangled bugs everything was fine. If I were to do it again though I'd duct the rigs with cardboard and use some box fans w/ chopped up furnace/AC air filters to filter the air a bit. Will have to find a similar solution for this upcoming summer as the rigs migrate outside the house again.

No offense, but there are good reasons to not do 24/7 unattended electrical operations with flammable materials.

While I've been known (in my much younger past) to run a machine in a static wrap bag (to decrease cat hairs) in a cardboard tray, I would not attempt to run my mining gear this way. I thought it was dangerous to make that PC work that way - 24/7 equipment that runs at full tilt boogie can experience unexpected events. I have responded to alarms on gear that turned out later to have melted, or caught fire in the switchroom/datacenter.

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

I appreciate your concern but perhaps I should have been a bit more clear in my plans. I have a wood/steel shelving unit that I will be shrouding the sides in cardboard and placing a box fan at the entrance of this wind tunnel. I've abused enough hardware competitively overclocking over the last half decade to see how fets fail and occasionally roast. Caps no longer explode and proper power supplies have OVP/OCP/short protection(that I have frequently tested due to MB/GPU fets exploding). I have greater concerns over GPUs dying and taking out a rig than a fet shorting to ground and potentially causing a short lived burst of flame.

This is the simplest solution to venting around 7 kW of heat outdoors. Contain and vent rather than vent an entire building.

This one is really cheap, less than 25$. Put in a mining rig, it even works as a warm house for flowers during winter, but how to modify it  Roll Eyes

Is there anyone have experience in setting up outdoor housing?

1. rain/snow resistant
2. dust resistant
3. good ventilation


I found it extremely difficult to fulfill all the requirement at the same time, if I cover the open frame shelf with transparent foil, then the ventilation will be so bad that the card get much warmer

I even thought about a stove like design to push the warm air out through a chimney, but then I need to vertically place the cards so that the exhaust point upwards...



I am in the last stages of completeing such a project, it's been hashing in my balcony for roughly a week now, in temberatues of between -5 and 16 degrees celcius . I have taken tons of photos and notes and intend to write an article on it, will post link in this thread once I do.

A design with some real data collection and proof of what it can do.  I'm excited to see it.
