Idea is to change bitcoin miner Antminer S7 with loud air-cooling to silent one by using modern 2-phase cooling system with mineral oil. The plan is to place printed circuit boards inside housing made of plexi-glass and place the housing into Novec 7100 liquid, which boiling point is 61C. Steam will guide the heat away and later will condensate on a radiator, which contains water-contour, that is cooled by usual central heating radiator. Future features could also include using more silent power supply and converting device to smart one by adding e.g. RaspberryPi. Latter could be used for reading room’s temperature and adjusting heater behaviour based on it.
