The heat produced by mining crypto was to much. I decided to submerge my 6 – R9 280x in mineral oil to send the majority of heat outside. The automotive radiator was used for it’s size.
There is typically 6 cards in this setup. One of them is out for maintenance. The oil level is a bit low. I’m ordering two more gallons of mineral oil fluid.
I will be making update videos as the mining rig progresses.
This is my first mineral oil pc. Mineral Oil Submerged PC
As seen on Coindesk
There is another mineral oil mining rig on youtube!
Project Ended – Not profitable
Electricity cost during the summer were more than double. Increase in power consumption from warmer weather and higher cost of electricity during summer months.
The hardware has lived its life out in the world of crypto. Time for a new purpose. I’m selling off the mineral oil pc parts. I’m keeping the pumps and radiator for another project.
