    PC was build 2-3 months ago but without case
    look like this:

    I want to build small mining case, which looks good, take less space, its silent and also will work as little heater at winter.

    List of thing which was done:
    - custom design of case for 12x gpu without i/o brackets - 35m spacers betwen them
    - plexi was laser cut and aluminium cut and drill on manual lathe
    - I have to buy 24 risers in total bcoz narrow008c are sold with thick usb cable which was not good for cable managment also have bigger bend radius, so i bought 008c and also 006 regular ones with thin usb cable so i can mix them and use 008c with thin cables
    - custom lenght 8PIN from PSU to 4x 6pin riser cables for power
    - custom lenght 6pin from PSU to 4pin EPS
    - stock fans and i/o metal bracket from gpus was removed (8-9screws each) 100screws total (stock heatsink not intact
    - custom laser cut mount for ssd
    - ssd is powered from internal SSD pins with custom cable - internal 4pin(2pin use) to sata plug
    - fan voltage regulator - LM2596 voltage regulator + 1 @ 5fan 4 pin splitter


    TO DO LIST
    - side panels
    - shorter 24pin cable


    Specs:
    case: 3mm plexi + 10x10alu profiles - 234x228x476mm - 25,5 liter
    fans: delta 92mm 0,6A each @ 8,5-9V
    fan controller - LM2596
    motherboard - chinese B250C BTC
    cpu - pentium G4400
    ram - 8gb corsair
    ssd - intel 120gb
    gpu - kfa2 gtx1050ti
    risers - 008c narrow
    psu - seasonic(LDLC) platnium 750W
    power consumption from wall - 660W
    speed - 188mhash @ 660W

    next one in progress - almost the same dimensions (only change is +1,5cm to width) but will fit 12x rx570 pulse ITX O______O

    Sure. Still almost doubling my electric bill. Not quite the ~x5 figure it was earlier this year, but yeah.

    Most folks don't count in for the times that some of the algos go crazy, like Lyra2REv2 yesterday. I was almost ~.02 /d for a good several hours. Crypotonite v7/Heavy will pop off like that at times too.

    While your typical 'high water' profitability mark isn't usually that long a duration (someone's buy bot going crazy?), it can be counted upon enough that your typical haul is higher than what any calculator will tell you.

    custom 2 wire cable for pci-e + riser power

    its 1mm electrical cable (rx570 consume less than 4A from riser, and less than 6A from pci-e 6pin socket)

    is it safe? why not - for comparasion AWG18 which is 0,82mm is rated 10A max, here i have 1mm and its use half of current)


    working for 12hours already (wire isnt even warm)

    Looks cool. I like the transverse mounting of the GPUS.
