Cooling generates money for me

I placed my machine near the air suction duct of my apartment and it has prevented me to use the central heating in my apartment so far, and its 5  degree celsius outside. Attaching the image.

Guess that would be a viable reason to run an FX 9590 and an R9 295X2 in the same system...

I don't believe this is generating money. Perhaps saving... but it's still not running for free :P

A penny saved is a penny earned!


Actually some apartments you get free electric. Even some condo's get free electric. It is not as rare as you would think.

maybe, but it is really making me happy right now since I kept the cards running for mining and low crypto rates meant I was not earning money. 

 

Since now I am not using heater, the mining operation is paying for it self when combined with my crypto earning. My heater bill used to be $40-50 last year, and currently the system is using 400W in total meaning it will cost me $31 in one month. So, hopefully this will suffice till it hits maybe -5 degree celsius outside :P

Both of them are rx 580s :)

Crossfire RX580s with a shit-tier 500w EVGA W1 PSU?

No wonder you don't need to run your central heating; you'll have a small furnace going once that thing combusts!

have you thought about the glorious perpetual machine or even solar. Panels are cheap now. In the news years ago there was a bum who lived in the dirt crawl space of a house for a long time. The house was sold and they were doing renovations. The bum had a very nice setup with heat and electricity. He was not mining or nothing like that, but that just goes to show you the lengths people go to call a place home and a comfortable home is the best home. Blue light wakes up the brain, I would suggest orange or green for you and get rid of the blue. Your wiring is A1! Forget solder and use elec tape :)

You get an A+ for effort on your wiring. You could match the rgb to your electrical tape! However the real pro uses what ever is at arms reach. Scotch tape, duct tape, gum, latex. Yes I have used it all, and more. Just have to make sure the twist is tight.

 

Are you using an AC to DC converter for your fans going to the top of the case?

Could even use a regular table fan or floor fan. I have seen it all.

Why not put the pc inside a model plane?

That would be so much cooler IMO!

 

Wireless keyboard and wireless mouse.

Your monitor wires would have to be camo'd good somehow.

 

Your front rotors could act as legit cooling!

Oh sorry, I do not watch his video's.

 

Why not one up Lman and put a pc inside an operating radio controlled helicopter?!

 

Figure out a wireless monitor setup, if available. MMMMmmmm power, you'd have to check on that if you go that amazing route to one up Lman.

Build a PC using this portable fuel tank as a case.

Actually... That's a great idea! you can custom fit some fan filters, and just carry the dang thing around with you. You can even put in a side panel window if you want. Thanks for  the idea
