So heat will affect hash rate? I am buying air duct today. I plan to run from outside eve where is coolest and bring straight into the mini room for miners. I think I can run 18 hours per day minimal this way. Ill let you know. Thanks for the reply. I thought my other post went dead so I had to ask the question.
If you have a dust buildup, you need to clean your Antminer, my Z11 can be taken apart and cleaned. If you bought used they are probably dirty. Yes they will slow down if too hot. Should be easy to see that from the control panel using your browser.
I have all my mining equipment off for the time being, just not profitable plus do not know how long this shutdown period will last.
When you say you have no idea what you are doing, are you at least tracking profitability? I'm pretty sure T17s are unprofitable to run at current prices. I hope you didn't just buy them, or got a heck of a deal on them at least.
