Testing a Crypto Mining Shed During a Heat Wave

Welcome back to the Hobbyist Miner channel, today we have a special video focusing on the performance of a crypto mining shed during a heat wave currently plaguing Pennsylvania. The temperature is currently at 91 degrees Fahrenheit and with the high humidity levels, it’s giving a whole new meaning to sweating it out.

We have several rigs set up in the shed that we’ll be examining to check their performance during these extreme weather conditions, including octo miner and server cases mining a variety of coins such as Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ethereum, Ergo, and Flux. So, let’s get to it!

The Shed Environment

Once inside the shed, you’ll immediately notice the high temperatures. On one side we have 100 degrees Fahrenheit with 33-34% humidity, and on the other side, temperatures reach 104 degrees Fahrenheit, with the humidity clocking in at only 33%. Despite the high temperatures, you can feel the air being sucked through the shed, thanks to the exhaust fans.

Octominer X12 Rig

Our first rig is the Octominer X12, containing 12 RX 470s mining Ethereum Classic. In addition to this, we have:

– An X8 rig with eight RX 580s mining Ethereum
– Another rig with eight RX 570s mining Ergo
– A Flux rig with a mix of 1070s and 2060s
– A rig with a variety of 6600 XTs and a 6500 XT

Parts of the shed have fans installed to help cool off the area. These fans are currently on 30% in order to deal with the heatwave. However, despite the intense heat, the rigs seem to remain stable, with temperatures mostly in the 50s, 60s, and low 70s when it’s 100 degrees inside the shed.

Future Plans for the Shed

Although the shed currently does not have air conditioners installed, it’s important to note that for mining, its performance relies on constant airflow. The fans do an adequate job of regulating temperature without necessarily relying on air conditioners. We have plans to improve the shed in the following ways:

– Installing a gladiator rack to cover the entire shed, making room for equipment not currently in the shed.
– Epoxying the floor to prevent dust and create a better, more professional workspace.
– Addition of guttering to the outside of the shed.
– Installing wireless smoke alarms and fireballs for added safety.

These upgrades aim to make the shed more suited for long-term crypto mining and should ultimately improve the efficiency of the rigs operating inside.


Heatwaves and high humidity can be a challenge to deal with, especially when it comes to temperature-sensitive equipment such as crypto mining rigs. However, as evident from the performance of the rigs in the shed, having proper airflow with exhaust fans is crucial.

The shed’s plans for future upgrades will only improve its performance and make it more adequate for long-term crypto mining operations. The temperatures recorded during this heatwave are within the acceptable range and show that the shed is handling the conditions well.

So, if you’re a crypto miner also dealing with heatwaves or high humidity, remember that airflow is the key to success and can truly make a difference in keeping your rigs running smoothly. Stay cool and happy mining!

  1. I just switched to server cases. Def run hotter. I can't even mine flux in them and there's 12 fans throughout the case. Anything core intensive. I think the shed would do well open air rigged.

  2. WOW those temps are toasty. Your better off with open air rigs with your shed setup. Ditch the over hyped and over priced octominers. Besides that your setup is awesome keep the videos coming. Thanks

  3. I greatly appreciate your honesty and how this worked out for you. Iโ€™m trying to learn this and integrate this strategy into my portfolio, just wanna do it right. This helps a lot. Learning what not to do is as valuable as learning what to do, this video provides both but later on I was convinced to try out packages of which have yielded lot more profits

  4. my man love the setup, but all this work into mining and you dont seem to have any modern gen cards or high hashrate. why not take the time to dump the old cards and upgrade?

  5. That is very cool. Thanks for sharing Hobbyist! If I had a lot of rigs that is what I would consider. I'm at two rigs. lol Cheers and keep those wonderful videos coming.

  8. What's the average ambient temp? dump the fans, keep the insulation in the roof space and vent the shed 360 using temp-rain-controlled motorised vents. Basically, you want the rigs outside in the shade and kept dry. and if possible increase the operational area.

  9. I've always wanted to mine BTC but could not afford super expensive ASIC's. I bought an NFT that mines BTC if you hold onto it. No electricity bill, no waiting to buy equipment cause everything is sold out, just an NFT. ๐Ÿ‘

  10. Hey. I have 7gh in a similar place and i dont go beyond 85F. I can share some videos with you. Overall the idea is a bit different from yours. I have 2x mining tents. 1st tent has 12x octominers and the back of that tent, is cut to the octo frame, and the heat goes on the back where I have 6x ac infinity. Makes sense? Back tent with negative pressure, front tent, cold air incoming. You never mix fresh with contaminated air

  11. THM wow nice! I just like seeing now a great plan comes together! I wonder if you can sound proof the walls a bit so your Jaz miner gets to hang with the rest of your gear, truly best to get anything very noisy away from the family .. I learned that lesson over five years ago!

    Keep up with the great content!

  12. personally I would put a inside wall on intake side with bottom 6 inchs or so open… so air isnt on a direct path to rigs …. rain would make me really nervous long term

  13. I live in Texas, and it's hot here, I heard u say, any temp under 79 is good with you. I have been trying to keep them under 70 and shut them off when they hit 72, can I revise my strategy? Is 73, 74 ok?

  14. You need to have air going through your your miners once you get everything setup by creating a barrier between your hot/cold aisles. It would help GPU temps tremendously

  15. You should get a historical temp monitor that graphs the temp over time. I got one for my garage and its interesting to be able to go back and see your hottest temp ever over time. Only like $40 on amazon.

  16. If you are doing insulation, remember the outside temp the day of this video to compare to the shed with insulation. It would be interesting to see how much the difference will be. Also a wifi water sensor would be a good idea if you think you might ever have leaks in there.
    Edit: Also a wind speed guage would be handy to tell where the highest speed of air is. Then you can position your rigs in the best spot.

  17. all seems great .. too bad you can't put the jasminer there to get rid of the sound inside the house but it feels like the shed will amplify it and make it even louder for some reason i personally do not own a jasminer but seen how loud they can get.
