    @bitsbetrippin @arielf How do you keep them cool, if cards are placed so close to each other?

    first rig, 4 x 280x vaporX --> 91MH/s ~ 700W at the wall


    second rig, 2 x 280x vaporX + 280x asus -> 68MH/s ~ 500W at the wall

    @bitsbetrippin how's the latest 6 x r9 390 rig been hashing?

    My small farm around 1700Mhs

    I wish i could afford all nanos like some of you guys but at $500 a card you must already have been sitting on a pretty penny to implement so many kudos to you.

    I have a mix of 280x, 280s, GTX 970s , and 370s and a few 380s. Going forward I will lean towards 390s with heavy undervolts and maybe a few test 380s.


    Those of you still using zip ties i really think you can simplify your builds buy just mounting the cards on the racks , I talked about this before and got alot of pushback regaring static issues and other BS but from running my rigs like this over six months + i have not seen any of the imagine issues. Yes maybe some heat gets transfered to the frame but as long as the cards are well spaced i dont see it affect temps.

    How did you secure the cards on the rack ? Or are they just "sitting" there ?

    @fr4nkthetank is your question on securing the cards for me ?

    every video card has a set of grooves on the bottom where its supposed to be screwed in to the case, if you align that groove sideways like i have all my cards it automatically locks the card in place sideways on the rack.

    Here's a picture of 3 of my latest rigs i've built over the past 3 weeks. Once they have passed the 1 month probation period, they will be moved into the mining room :)



    Nothing too amazing, just two 6 x Sapphire 390 rigs running on ASRock H81 BTC Pro boards, and a 6 x Gigabyte 380X rig running on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5 board. All running solid and making some very decent hashing power :)

    @hasher that must be putting off some serious heat ;)
  • hasherhasher Member Posts: 642 ✭✭✭
    @work there's a massive air conditioner thats to the right of the rigs (out of the frame of the picture). Then each rig has its own 18" fan force feeding the cool air from the aircon straight into each of the rigs. My monthly power bill is scary, but i'm still making decent money :)
  • hasherhasher Member Posts: 642 ✭✭✭
    @work the heat that these rigs in the picture produce is nothing compared to my older 7990 rigs that are running in the mining room. Those are a bitch to keep cool, but the hashing power is just too tempting :) Although from now on, I will only build 390 rigs. They are the best in terms of hash power and heat IMO. I don't want to waste space with lots of little 370s hashing away, so they have been taken out of the equation. The 380X rig is there because I picked the cards up at bargain price, because my supplier quoted me the wrong price :)

    how expensive is this profiles (1m?) and what is the name of it?

    hey which cpu do u have on the boards?
  • hasherhasher Member Posts: 642 ✭✭✭
    I had the owner of spotswood ship me a lot of ready-to-assemble mining frames. They aren't cheap, but they are top quality. I've yet to see another open air mining frame as good as his. You can check out his website and find more information here. He can also custom make frames to your specific requirements: http://spotswoodcomputercases.com/wp/?page_id=875

    Hi
    I made this rig the night before I got 2x 380 R9 MSI. I built it pretty fast so hopefully if I buy more cards making the next one will be much better and simple. This one is temp for the time being)) I really hope ETH stays profitable in mining for the rest of the year at least)) the I would get to make some epic rigs))




    This was/is my gaming pc I have to take them out of the cases or the R9 270x 2gb pass 80 degrees((
    and as you can see I had to make my own power connections on it because the 2 r9 380s did not come with their 6 pins so I used the ones from my 270 and I also customized the 8pin on the blue PSU to make it work with 6 pins for one of the 380s because it only has 1x 6pin

    Man you really should build some wooden stands at least.



    Should cost less than $10 for 1 or 2 rigs.
    This is what I plan to follow for the next rig) or I make one where the cards are upside down)

    You should really get some proper power supplies and clean your MSI card, too dusty. Just use compressed air.

    the ASRock boards are running celeron CPUs, and the Gigabyte board is running an AMD FX CPU

    yep this R9 270x is very dirty and the board aswell I haven't cleaned them from last year lol and I have to work with these PSUs for now makes no sense for me to get one of those evga yet, shipping to Jamaica is not worth it, these PSUs are running ok so far they are not hot or shutting off I just have to make 10-12 pins for them using the pins from a 24pin MB connection its pretty simple and has no problems. so far.

    modding my work desktop and fitted with cheap 2nd hand 7970 GPU



    running well 24/7 through the night ...



    bought more 2nd hand R9 280x GPUs, with more GPUs added need to move to open air...
    ended up badly



    rebuild it....



    then, bought some fresh brand new R9...



    and also, refurbish some cheap old 7950...





    replace the fans, benchmark, tune some bios, benchmark, stress test, ...



    some GPU tested, and in queue to be installed, with brand new fans,... 2$ PC case fans is better, and it will broke every 2 months..



    install some power strip, its going to be hot..!



    the supercomputer is ready to spin...



    running 24/7 almost a year..., on the pic is after i clean up the dust



    the oldest 4x 7970, is still running and post some hashes, too lazy to clean it up

    Just set up my 2nd rig, working on the 3rd. R7 370s, One MSI and the other is ASUS. The MSI seems to stay cooler.
