Beautiful!

Once more, a  text book example of how not to engineer system cooling. I imagine cooling isnt a big problem with those asics, but if you are going to spend money on large copper heatpipe coolers, you as well design the system so they can actually function.

fans up the side(S) moving air through the thing in a closed case wouldn't work?

looks like it'd work but i guess we'll see

Look closely at the HS; its mostly closed from the side. The design is to let air flow through from top to bottom, not sideways. And of course the system design makes that impossible.

I'm not seeing how vertical cooling design is apparent versus a horizontal airflow along the plane of the boards. Anyway, I don't think anyone knows where the fans will be placed on this rig yet either. This is just the guts.

Perhaps,  it will be axial airflow flow through the middle, then out the sides and/or towards the backend.

Those would be the enclosure covers.  At least they have those. Roll Eyes

Tired of substandard power distribution in your ASIC setup???   Chris' Custom Cablez will get you sorted out right!  No job too hard so PM me for a quote

Airflow will be from right to left, not front to back. 

Air will be drawn up into an exhaust channel and exhausted out the side.  So yeah, putting these side by side is a no-go.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Does this announcement mean they won't be shipping singles while they're "focusing purely on Mini Rig shipments"??

Not at all, they are completely unrelated. Two different projects from two different assembly/shipping department.

For singles or for MR?  Way to be vague with the answers so everyone can read what they want with it.

Right, especially since all of this is discussed in the BitForceSC ASIC thread   Cheesy
