Welcome to the Crypto Mining Shed Project

The journey of building and filling up a crypto mining shed with GPUs is an exciting one, and this article will walk you through some essential steps and useful tips to help make your project a success. From soundproofing the shed using foam acoustic tiles to installing fire safety equipment and effective smoke detectors, we will cover it all in this guide. So let’s dive right into it!

Soundproofing the Crypto Mining Shed

Foam Acoustic Tiles

In this crypto mining shed project, we have a total of 50 foam acoustic tiles. These are designed to reduce noise and provide a more pleasant working environment in the shed by dampening the sound of noisy mining equipment.

Installation Techniques

There are several ways to attach these tiles to the walls and ceiling of your shed. The recommended method for this project involves using 3M double-sided sticky tape adhesive, which can be found at your local hardware store. This is an easy and effective way to secure the tiles, without having to put numerous small holes in your shed.

Alternatively, you can use screws or liquid nails to attach the tiles, though this may cause more damage to the shed’s structure.

Corner Acoustic Foam Pieces

Another helpful solution to further soundproof the shed is to add corner pieces that help absorb and decrease sound reflection within the space. These pieces can be purchased separately, and placing them in the corners of the shed will provide better sound insulation.

Fire Safety Equipment in the Crypto Mining Shed

Fire Extinguisher Balls

Safety should always be a top priority in any project, and fire safety is no exception. In this crypto mining shed project, two fire extinguisher balls are installed. These are useful devices that can extinguish different types of fires, such as those caused by electrical faults or overheating equipment.

Each ball should be mounted on a bracket in different corners of the room at a relatively high position. In the event of a fire, the ball will release fire extinguishing powder to help douse the flames and protect your home, shed, and mining equipment from further damage.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Another essential safety feature in any crypto mining shed is installing reliable smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Wireless interlinked detectors like the X-Sense combination smoke and carbon dioxide detectors used in this project are an excellent choice because they can be connected to your home’s wireless network and, on some models, even to an app on your phone.

This offers added peace of mind because you can receive alerts and notifications if any issues arise in the shed while you’re away from home.

Finishing Touches on the Crypto Mining Shed

Once the sound insulation and fire safety measures are in place, it’s time to install the remaining foam acoustic tiles and corner pieces. Using the remaining tiles, you can attach them in strips along the walls of the shed, focusing on areas that are fully exposed.

With these final touches in place, your crypto mining shed will be ready to house and operate your mining equipment safely and efficiently.

Upcoming Additions and Changes in the Crypto Mining Shed

As you continue to maintain and improve your crypto mining shed, there are more exciting updates and additions to look forward to, such as:

New Mining Racks

In the coming weeks, new mining racks will be added to the shed to house GPU rigs securely and efficiently. These installations will allow you to expand your mining operation and increase your project’s earning potential.

Asic Miner Cooling System

A proposed fanless cooling system for an ASIC miner using AC Infinity inline fans will help improve the efficiency and quiet operation of the shed. This will not only enhance the overall working environment but also help to prolong the lifespan of the mining equipment.

In conclusion, building a crypto mining shed is an exciting and rewarding project that requires careful planning and execution. From soundproofing to fire safety, every aspect of the project contributes to the success of your mining operation. By following these tips and recommendations, you’ll be well on your way to creating a safe, efficient, and enjoyable workspace for your mining endeavors.

  1. Unfortunately, gluing the sound panels directly to the radiant barrier will eliminate the thermal barrier and will allow the sun's heat to travel directly into the shed.

  2. For the smoke detectors you can potentially look into connecting with your security system. GoAbode has this device that you mount next to your defector which basically a microphone and can detect when you smoke alarm goes off it will notify you on your phone and if you pay for security system monitoring it can alert the fire dept as well. Simpli safe and Nest also have similar products.
    I would recommend probably putting some motion sensors / door contact sensors for intrusion detection, or for mistakes (door accidentally left ajar or animal gets in

  3. I would recommend rockwool sound proof insulation with poly. Nothing beats it. I mine with 6 ASIC in my custom built sheds at my rental properties. No noise complaints. And that’s ASIC s19 95TH. The insulation will also prevent heat from outside impacting the inside ambient temperature. Great work, just think the 3M might melt and peel off as opposed to poly and staples. As well as your sound proof pannels are very thin compared to insulation from HomeDepot. We are paramedic and fire fighter certified as well with 2 master electricians on our team 🙂 Cheers bro 😎 ✌🏽

  4. Just a suggestion but you should look into getting a kit to have your power disconnect if the smoke detector alerts that way it shuts your fans off because that extra air will just cause the fire to burn fast. Also if it is an electric fire it could prevent the fire extinguisher ball from working as good as it can.

  5. im guessing you didnt see the most upvoted comment last time you did this. that foam does nothing for noise isolation. you need nylon soundproofing panels and bass traps. you can quickly and easily test if a material is noise isolating by putting it up to a wall and talk or make a noise into it. you'll hear it deaden and be mute from any sort of resonation if it's noise blocking. and i assure you that those foam panels you are using do not do that

  6. This is not good. The radiant foil that is on the inside of your shed walls only works if there’s an air gap. By placing those sound dampening pads directly on the foil looking surface you are preventing the radiant barrier from working. This will drastically increase how much the sun heats up your shed. I would highly recommend a product like Rockwool safe n sound. It can be installed with an air gap in between the studs leaving a small air gap between the foil and it. That way it allows the radiant barrier to do its job. As well as increasing your insulation and absorbing the sound. This is how I’m setting up my mining shed.

  7. Hobbyist Miner, I love your videos..
    Are you going to run a sound dB test before and after? I ask because another YouTuber said that those foam things don’t really block sound but they make it so the sound doesn’t echo. I dunno, I’m not a scientist. But you definitely Are and I would love to see the results. 😃

  8. Should have used a spray glue as I have my whole bedroom walls covered in those tiles and took about 2 or 3 cans and they were under £10/$9-8 but my room is larger than your shed so would maybe be 2 cans to do the whole areas you wanted covered.
    Shed almost done now and happy you found a way to get the tiles to stay up, will be keeping up with the shed adventure and progress.

  9. If I ever got to building a shed, I would probably fill the walls with sheets of 3/4 foam insulation with R-5 value until 2x4s were filled, then expansion foam the gaps, and finally put sound foam like that with ridges aligned parallel with air flow as to not disrupt the flow from intake to exhaust.

  10. Those fire balls are the replica ones I’m sure, they are nowhere near as effective as the genuine ones.

    I use Nest smoke detectors for my mining room, it has mobile notifications 👍

  11. I’ve used those same double sided 3m stuff for my foam pads when I hung them up. They would fall off the wall like every other day… I fixed it with alien tape… they haven’t moved since

  12. Fun stuff. I can appreciate the detail you are putting into the shed. One thing you could look at is diverters for your intakes. Instead of a straight on intake, it makes the air pull around sides and lowers the intake noise. Same can be done with exhaust 🤔

  13. In a studio situations, studio sound proofing is typically used to prevent excessive reverberations and comb filtering. 90° angles in a room cause the reverberation. corner pieces are supposed to keep your room from having 90° angles. So having it only on the roof prolly won't do much from the way sine waves move through the air. Sine wave is a shape of audio btw. High pitched sounds drop of faster than lower sounds. That's why you hear bass from a ways away.

  14. Careful with the WiFi junk for fire systems. There's a reason they don't do it commercially. Ademco/Honeywell all use 900Mhz of some form in their systems. Even then we have odd issues with them. Definitely mount them on the ceiling at whatever PA code is (NFPA or whatever it is for you locally), don't want to find out the entire top half of your areas have smoke before you might get a wifi alert. WiFi and wireless anything isn't magic.. Personally, I use all Zwave which integrate with my outlets and can be 24/7 monitored, and even then I'd rather have a real system. I absolutely wouldn't trust anything not made by the big guys for anything fire related..

    Also you should try to do a DeAuth attack on those detectors… Wonder what they'll do. Might be like that security system youtubers love that can be crippled with a BaoFeng radio..

  15. Mineral wool or rock wool insulation absorbs sound and is also fire resistant with a melting point of 2000 Fahrenheit. Seems like the perfect material

  16. I use Ring security system and they have some smoke and CO detectors that will connect to that system. It will alert your phone and also if you pay for the $100 per year professional monitoring they will call the fire department for you if you are unreachable.

  17. RF is wireless…. I don’t think it’s the companies fault you see wireless and you think “Wi-Fi”. Bluetooth is also wireless. Wireless simply “means no wires” for communication or sometimes power. Such as wireless charging. Silly gnomes. 😝

  18. you need to be rotating each tile 90 degrees from each other to break up the sound…. with them all facing same direction you are creating patterned waves.
