I bought this Bitmain Antminer S5 utilized on eBay for $159 with totally free shipping and delivery. The first proprietor modified (modded) it by enclosing it with acrylic plastic (Plexiglas, Acrylite, Lucite, and Perspex) glass and swapping out the incredibly loud OEM supporter with a considerably quieter supporter.
I am using a decibel (db) meter application on my Samsung Galaxy S5 to verify the audio level of the miner.
Standing a foot absent yields a consequence of forty nine-fifty dB. Correct in entrance of the supporter is about 62dB. At the entrance to my business, the sounds is down to about 22-24dB.
The PSU (electrical power supply unit) is a Azza Titan 1000W 80 Plus Bronze design # PSAZ-1000A14.
The supporter is a Scythe DFS123812H-3000 Ultra Kaze 120mm x 38mm Scenario Fan – 3000RPM which is not PWM so it has a three pin plug and the supporter speed can not be managed.
I have read through that the Noctua NF-F12, Noctua NF-P12 and the Corsair SP120 case lovers in a press pull configuration can also be incredibly quiet.
I am using a Netgear router as a wi-fi bridge to get an ethernet link to the miner in my garage.
At the stock 350mhz clock rate, the miner stays at about 52-55C (Celsius). The temperature in the garage is about sixty nine-75 degrees Fahrenheit.
