I wanted to share my project here.
I plan to heat my house ( again ) this winter with mining gear.
But noise is damn annoying. I invested a bit to get my house quiet again.
I ordered some Waterblock and Pump/Radiator kit from Syscooling
No S5 watercooling case were available, I had to package it somehow myself.
First test was a bit of a mess.
I fried a PCB when I shorted it when hashing, damn moron …
Second run, I fixed everything on a plywood. Better.
I had to update my S5 firmware to control the fan speed.
ATM Running S5 fan at only 5% for a PCB temp of 50 Degrees C.
One PCB hashing. Water pump and radiator fan are really quiet.
I plan to do a repackaging of my kit to have 4 water blocks and find a way to put it all together nicely.
It is a real relief not to ear the stupid S5 fan noise
I need more S5 blades to populate my kit, I’m looking for some bargain.
Winter is coming
