Hi

I just finished my project, big home heater.

2x antminer C1 (2.31 btc + 120$ fees ~ 870$)
6 meters pipe 10mm (6$)
circulation pump 28W 0.7m3/h (70$)
chevrolet cooler with fan (from scrap, 20$)
cooper joints, spliters (50$)
2 PSU, 1200gold from dragon and 1300W rosewill platinum (from scrapped miners)

I connected fan from PSU using 5V molex. Fan is not loud Smiley

This setup allows to heat whole floor (50m2) with 24 celsius.
Great for winter.

I am very happy Smiley

comments welcome

The cooler looks like it could need some cleaning... I would certainly not operate it in a living area.
Apart from that, it's a "cool" project!

With any water cooling kits, make sure you added stuff to the fluid to keep algae down. Also, I hope you didn't mix metals. Aluminium + copper = bad in a loop.

Aside from that, that looks awesome! How cool are the miners running? No doubt that radiator can handle the heat Cheesy

I noticed you left some air in the loop, that's bad for the pump. You need a reservoir to trap the air. The fastest way to make one would be to take a jar, punch 2 holes in the lid and add to the loop before the pump.

bad in loop ? can you explain what can happen ?

miners are running about 39-42 degrees
29 celsius is air near fan
27 celsius at this small attic room
25 celsius at room near and kitchen

Yeah, it will be fine as a heater, but i dont think that you will ever be able to get your invested money back from mining.

Thanks for the idea

really nice work, well done!

so right now i am sitting with a 1kw fan heater and i am paying 0.25euro cent per kw/hr for this.

what miner will make a good cost effective heater...... nothing too loud Smiley main purpose is foot warming while at desk.

grab a btc garden v1/v2, they are very quiet, due to extreme low chip density per heatsink
you can dismantle it into sole boards and put silent fans on them
