Well I run two GPU's in my miner (used to be 7950 + 7850, now it's 7850 + 6950) and I run them in a Thor V2 case with the stock fans on max speeds all the time. I keep the miner in a room that sees little use, because it runs pretty loud and heats up the room quite nicely. It works out fairly well, except when I blew out the dust of the video cards yesterday (it's 4 months of dust, mind you) I started coughing on all the dust. Clearly that needs to be done more often than I do it, but it works fairly well.

 

But hopefully my setup will change soon enough, and I'll be able to host my miner in a 5C area, that would be beautiful because it would lower temps plus it isn't used a whole lot so I could really ramp up the fans.

 

That or I was planning to build a little shed like box with fans for intake and outtake in my backyard. It gets to -40C here in the Winter, which is probably too cold to spin hard drives in, but I think my GPU's would love it.

Here are two pictures of my LTC mining rig with only 4 GPUS in it. Final setup has two power supplies on the bottom, motherboard and ssd in the middle section, and then 6 GPUs in the top section. 5 of the 6 GPUs are the Sapphire 6870s that are basically rebadged 5870s as they have 1600 sp and the final one is a ASUS 5850. Get right at 2.5 Mh/s with this setup.

I'm doing both, but don't use more than one small instace with HP cloud, otherwise you run out of credit before the month passes.

That's what the 2 on the bottom are. biggrin.gif

I've got 2 standard small instances with HP Cloud and one XL instance with Azure.

how are the HP cloud server for mining (im assuming xpm) and how quickly do you burn through the credit?

also how profitable are they do they cover the $50/month price or are they only worth mining on the free trial

What does it mean by 1,000h/mo of compute.... because there arn't 1000 hours in a month how does it calculate how many hours are used?

Even though it seems like a bad idea, I'm going to mine Litecoin on this lol (3 GPUs).

What does your VM's /proc/cpuinfo show? Apparently my VM is running on Opteron 4171 HE CPUs.
