Octominer: a Key Player in GPU Mining Industry

There are various companies within the cryptocurrency mining industry and one of the most noticeable among them is Octominer. Octominer has been a strong backbone of my channel and has been a substantial supporter for over two years. They specialize in manufacturing top-of-the-range mining rigs and are even supplying to some of the largest GPU mining farms across the globe. Here’s a statistic to give you some context – approximately two percent of the total Ethereum Net Hash Rate comes from Octominer rigs.

Octominer: A Trendsetter in the Ever-Changing Market Conditions

Despite the recent correction in the crypto market, GPU prices are going down, potentially offering miners an excellent opportunity to expand. Octominer is capitalizing on this chance by offering a sale. They produce around 2000 to 4000 rigs per month, proving their adaptability and resilience to market trends.

Partnering with AMD Blockchain

Octominer’s credibility in the crypto-mining industry is further substantiated by becoming an official AMD blockchain partner. This alliance marks a new horizon for Octominer, particularly when it comes to technical advancements and delivering robust and reliable mining solutions.

Taking Time with Mining Setups: A Lesson from Experience

These days, I often get asked why I don’t rush into setting up new mining rigs or produce more videos. From my experience in setting up my crypto mining basement, I appreciate the importance of patience and attention to detail. I learned lessons the hard way, making costly hasty decisions, especially with airflow. So, with the shed, my strategy has changed. I don’t want to rush; instead, I prefer to adopt a step-by-step approach.

Investing in Foundation: Key to a Robust Mining Rig Setup

After finalizing with Octominer, the focus shifted towards strengthening the foundation of the shed which included installation of bracket supports. These supports were attached to the shed and were additionally tapped into the deck foundation, ensuring a firm and secure grounding for the rigs. These foundational adjustments not only offer robust base support but also pave the way for future expansion.

Exterior Modifications for Efficiency

Apart from the indoor technicalities, dealing with exterior adjustments also played a significant part in the rig setup. This included installing ground anchors to secure the shed to the ground, offering further solidity to the structure. Other exterior adjustments included adding lattice to add aesthetic appeal and the installation of a gutter system.

The Role of Epoxy Flooring and Acoustic Installations

Moving into the interior setting, after testing various alternatives, the flooring was finalized with Rust-Oleum one-car garage epoxy. Epoxy flooring offers excellent durability and resistance to high levels of wear, making it an ideal choice for the high-traffic mining shed. Additionally, I installed acoustic tiles to minimize noise and optimize the working conditions.

Future Plans and Concluding Thoughts

As I look towards the future, there are more plans to install additional mining rigs in the shed. However, I wish to move at a manageable pace, not rushing into things. Having learned many lessons from past experiences, I recognize the importance of taking one step at a time. Also, considering the current unpredictable state of mining and profitability, it’s prudent to maintain a cautious approach.

Opportunities for Audience Engagement

As a YouTuber, audience engagement and feedback play an essential role in the quality of content I produce. In that regard, I’ve set up a membership feature on my channel offering one-on-one chats with me, sneak peeks into my future projects, and a lot more perks. Also, the Meter Box, a crucial component in monitoring power usage in real-time, is currently running a worldwide giveaway contest. It could be an excellent opportunity for beginner miners and even for the experienced ones to add to their setup, at no cost.

While there remain numerous facets to explore in the crypto mining landscape, patience, careful planning, and adopting sustainable practices remain at the core. As I continue my journey, I’m eager to learn, share and grow with my audience, one video at a time.

  1. The silver backing on your OSB is a thermal radiant barrier. It helps block out heat but it must have at least a 1 inch air gap to function properly. In other words, do not put any material against it. Leave at least a 1 inch air gap between the silver backing and the sound board so you don't defeat the thermal barrier.

  2. Nice shed, cool project. I suspect you’re going to have a lot of pressure drop through your building; and as a result struggle to get good temps. That current solution looks like it would be fine for 4-6KW depending on climate, I’d suggest a LOT more intake area to minimize static pressure and also give more surface area for filters. At this point I’d probably just huck some hardware in and see how it does for now.

  3. Well done THM, now I get the Epoxy story, but alll good mate, I'm not a builder but I can fix your car lmao maybe 1 day with continued resolve, ya miner too lol 😉

  4. I am worried that if you have any kind of a storm when the wind blows the rain sideways in the intake direction…. it's not going to be good…

    The conditions have to be right but it looks to be very possible it will suck in water if that happens.

  5. Maybe the commenters asking you to hurry up don’t understand that content creation is part of your bread n butter. Stretching out your content and posting good improvements (which is a balancing act) helps you out and in my opinion is more detailed for those wanting to duplicate or improve on your creation. It is one of the reasons I subscribe to your channel. Great job!

  6. Previous job I designed sound housings and diesel tanks for backup generators. Generally 250kw to 2 Meg generators that go behind hospitals and municipalities. No one humans wants these around them because they are loud. I designed the insulation levels and air intakes/discharges based off go the sound requirements for the jobs. Sounds dampening sucks. In my opinion- you could line that whole thing with sound dampening or sound barrier and all that sound will still come out of your intake louvers and fan openings. Air discharge hoods are generally directed up to redirect the sound upward away from humans. Intake are generally facing down to protect from and debris. If you are truly worried about sound and noise it might get more expensive than you think.
