I ordered 3 200CFM fans off Digikey (all the ones on computer sites are aimed at being quiet, so they don't move enough air). I did not install them yet as I want to design a temperature controlled buck converter for them so they only run at the speed they need to, but I tested one out and boy does it move lot of air! This is the ones I went with: https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/mechatronics-fan-group/MD1238X12B-FSR/1570-1122-ND/5209819
Has anyone experimented with removing all the plastic shrouding and even the fans from GPUs to fully expose the heat sink? With high active case cooling I wonder if this would actually result in better temps. The issue I have with my cards is the fans run too low, and I can't seem to find any info on how to force them at 100% within Linux.
I'd imagine with the high CFM fans ya'll are planning on running, removing the fans/shrouds from the gpus would actually work fine.
cdabc123, those look sweet, what are they?
I'm confused on those units.
You say 2800h/s on cryptonite algo? that's about 1/3 faster than an AMD Vega 56, right? (2000mh/s)
But you say one month ROI? I don't even see anything remotely close to that type of pricepoint on ebay!?! Those processors alone are $500+?
The motherboards look to be ~ $650?
Did you just find an unique and extraordinarily low price? It appears to me, at the prices I'm seeing, one would be better off buying an overpriced market value Vega if I wanted to mine cryptonite.
200 watts for 2000MH/s = $800 (vega56)
300 watts for 2800MH/s = $1250 (7200 + PHI)
sounds like someone posting in the hot deals section about a one-off deal they got on Craiglist that isn't repeatable.
im just answering questions not advertising what you peoples should do i take alllll the good deals for myself and then mine on it or resell it as a decent deal to other members
My mining rig is my humble gaming system with a single 1070 in it. Because I had a 960 and couldn't justify 600 bucks for a 1070 upgrade, except via mining when I'm not playing.
I've been wracking my brain to try and figure out how to build a proper mining rig at this point cheap enough to be worth it to me (considering market risk), but I got nothing. Looks like a blast to build one of these things, I just want to do it for the fun of it!
