I always love building new things and hope to share them all here one day. These projects cost me my discretionary income. Please consider donating and helping me pursue greater and bigger projects. I love you all!
A long long time ago I decided to buy a bitcoin miner. The miner board its self is only visible in the second part of the first picture in the second gallery below.
I did not want the miner mining unprotected so I set out to build this box. I would post the instructions on how to get the miner up and running, but the thing is so out of date (mines 9.7 gh/s) why bother?
Always best to start with a 3d model.
The box is made entirely of 1/4″ MDF. I used some dremel router package to route the shapes for all the internals to lock together tightly.
I covered the 250W power supply with a anti-static plastic to prevent any static charge from damaging the miner.
I installed two exhaust fans for cooling above and below the miner board as the board stretches across the entire width of the box. There is cut-to-size activated carbon filter behind all exhaust ports. The box is finished with several coats of black spray lacquer. Sadly, I do not have pictures of the box in its more pristine state, but above you can see it still sitting prettyish and operating six years later.
