So yeah. Time for a new build log eh? Dipping into the mining craze and I've decided to go an alternative route than most. I have one bench built up in my room right now and I'd say it's pretty compact compared to some of the crazier solutions I've seen around the internet lately. I've decided to expand but instead of on a bench I'm going to do it up right and mine with class my good sirs! CPU is going to be mining PTS while the GPUs are on Doge.

Here's what I've got so far!

 

First to go was these pesky things.

Gone!

Here's how it was looking, although on a shelf instead of the desk

Those Seidon rads fit nicely in the TJ07 top mesh area :)

(2x 120rads, not a 240)

 

Another

Mounted in the case

Floating like magic!

Turns out the other side had to go as well :/

Still not quite sliding all the way in...

Silly fan

Ended up turning the rad around so I could fit the tray all the way in and keep the 92mm fans

Dat TJ07 man mmm

Go big or go home!

And the current state.

I may turn the other rad around as well to match a bit more, because matching = classiness amirite?

 

Yes you may be thinking, why are you going with AIO units when you're watercooling and work for EK. The reason is these CPUs don't get hot...even while mining. The TJ07 is pretty limited in terms of radiator mounting unless you do a lot of modifications, which I don't really want to do for this build. The Seidon's fit up top nicely and will cool each CPU with ease. The GPUs will have the real water cooling :)

I think Doge is still the most profitable at the moment, although I'm sure many have different opinions on this.

DOGEEEEEEEEEE TO THE MOON!


For reals though. Saw a 15%+ spike today. I keep setting X amounts of Doge to sell for Y about of BTC and putting Doge at 5-10 points higher than current market and it's sold in less than an hour every time. Most Doge peeps are hoping to see a real nice spike at some point in the Olympics.

No matter how many other games I try and get into, Counter Strike just keeps dragging me back in.
