Introduction

In today’s video, we’re going to delve into the exciting world of cryptocurrency mining. We will be unboxing the Jazz Miner x41u, a powerful Ethereum classic miner. In an interesting twist, we will also integrate it with an Ironman Arc Reactor. Let’s embark on this thrilling journey!

Understanding the Jazz Miner x41u

The Jazz Miner x41u may look like an ordinary 1u server, but it’s a highly efficient Ethereum classic miner that entrusts an incredible hash rate. It consumes minimal power while delivering top performance. However, there’s one significant downside – it’s extraordinarily loud, earning it the nickname “the mosquito miner.”

Investigating the Noise Level

We’ll subject it to a sound level test to ascertain exactly how many DBs it produces. On average, it generates roughly 78 DB of sound which is considerably disruptive. Hence, modifications are necessary to make it home and neighbor-friendly.

Undertaking Modifications

The Modification Plan

Although an Iron Man Arc Reactor installation is fictional, we do plan substantial changes. After removing the fans from the front and back, our goal is to execute a middle cut to expose the heat sink. Next, we’ll use four quieter Knocktwo fans that run at 3000 rpm to create a suction effect drawing air through the heat sink.

Laying Out the Modifications

We’ll mount the fans precisely over the hole and align their upwards airflow direction. Subsequently, the heat sink fins will serve as the intake, drawing air from the front and the back, and then out through the top of the miner.

Implementing the Modifications

Once the lid is off, it’s clear how simple the miner’s components are: a power supply unit, a motherboard holstered in connectors, and an array of fans. After removing all large fans, implementing the modification plan commences. Cutting a hole in the lid may take some time.

Fitting and Fastening the New Fans

Fastening the fans requires creativity. We’ve used clips that can securely hang fans on metal racks. These clips (also known as Misfit mining) will be critical in tightly securing the fans to fasteners mounted on the heat sink fins. This modification complements the miner’s minimalistic design, providing optimal cooling while minimizing noise.

Testing the Modified Miner

It’s vital to verify if all the effort and alterations made to the miner have improved its noise levels and efficiency. Unsurprisingly, the difference is tangible! The modified miner consumes only 274 watts (a reduction from the previous 294 watts). Its cooling improved drastically, and although it registered 75 DB, it lacked the high-pitched whining noise typical of ASIC miners.

Conclusion

This project began as a fun, experimental video, but it has provided practical benefits. It’s a proud achievement in DIY mining modifications. Thanks to Chump Change XD whose video inspired this modification; their work is truly innovative and pushes the boundaries of DIY projects.

  2. If it was me I'd probably just replace all those 9 "screamer" fans with 40mm Noctua ones πŸ™‚
    Much lower risk of cutting a finger when making holes in the case.
    Like the mod anyway.

  3. THM very nice πŸ‘ came out great, BTW how did you connect the 3 pin splitter to a 4 pin source ? Anyways you did great, time to 3D print a cover that the fans connect to vs the heatsink so you can do ever removal of the cover if needed .. I know you could do that to the stock cover as well, just another idea, too bad I never got that unit would have enjoyed doing so mods to it too πŸ˜‚

  4. I would think that you would get better cooling by forcing the air down into the heat sink instead of suckling it out. Think of the low profile CPU coolers from Intel and AMD. They push the air into the heat sink.
