Name of my Mining Rig - StrobFX Render Farm

Mining Rig Details - Hi, I do 3D animation and VFX for a living. I started in crypto in 2013 with some bitcoin and ripple. I have a render farm that I use to render animation and simulate fluid simulations that is idle most of the time. So I thought maybe I should find a crypto I could still mine with it. I have 12 working computers: 6 barebones in a rackmount, 6 workstations (1 needs repair and is not working right now), and a laptop. they are all dual Xeon except the laptop which has an i7. The rackmount is in my basement and cooled by a portable air conditioning unit. I built all my workstations piece by piece except for the Dell. the barebones came with the motherboard already installed so I just sat the cpus, ram and hard drives. I calculated that I should have at least 43,542 H/m. I have 280 cores total but only 262 car mine (one workstation has 40 core but cpuminer-opt hcan use a max of 32 it seems) and some of my render nodes are missing hard drive space so I can't set their virtual memory to the needed 65Gb that would allow to use all their 24 cores. If I win this contest I would use the money to buy some ssd to add to these to theoretically pump it to 46,000H/m.

Here are the 3 pics:

Thanks! And please vote for me!

Name of my Mining Rig : Keep it simple

Mining Rig configuration :
UPS 540Watts / 900VA
08 W : Wirelesee router
72 W - 3.4Ghz - 4 thread - 1635 H/m (i5-3570k) {Debian}
76 W - 3.6Ghz - 8 thread - 1857 H/m (i7-4770k) {Debian}

Mining Rig details :
The goal is to share the mining concept to friends.
Show them that is not necessary to be an IT to enter in the Crypto world or having a lot of servers at home.
They can use their PC or old PC to mine and help the blockchain to be decentralized. (when it's good CPUs)

The goal of my mining ring is to optimize the power usage.
I'm "minning my storage" and the CPU one my servers.

Verium MIcrowave

Forum Name - Jayycee
Slack name - JayyCee

Cpu's Xeon 2692 ES @ 2.2-3 Ghz
64gb RAM

Here is my mining rig affectionately called the Verium Microwave, on the account that it looks like one, that and its cooking me up some Verium :D

It was my first build of any kind which the community of Veri helped me greatly on building. ( Thanks to vanv101, Steven and Socal ! )
There is 19 fans not including the graphics and PSU with a lower rpm to maximise air flow but it's practically SILENT. Its barely noticeable without the GPU's running within this there is a total of 472 LEDS in it on the 14 blue case fans ALONE.

It hashes on average of 5500 H/m and is powered by 2 Xeon 2692 12 core engineering samples at 2.2 ghz ( not 2.4 like i said in the video ) OC'd to 3ghz.
I have hyperthreading off which seems to hash better and is more stable. Its watercooled with two Ice kimo 240's which to my surprise work really well.

Name of my mining rig: Deda

Mining Rig Details: Named in honour of my late grandfather who worked his way to freedom in the coal mines. I also hope to secure my families future mining long term. This rig is setup with easy maintenance, low initial capital cost and future server upgrades in mind.

12 x 1u twin cpu e5-2650 v1 xeon rackmount servers with 32gb ram giving between 4.1-4.9Kh/min on 32 threads each. 6 Foxconn units from (verium discount voucher code available) and 6 unbranded whitebox units from ebay. All modded to maximise airflow from fans.

Secure Acer Aspire mini pc, to be used for future solo mining wallet header, currently staking.

Surge protected and uses a 16amp blue plug supply.

Convair low power evaporative cooler unit feeding the front.

Hot air either extracted from insulated outbuilding or redirected into my home to augment heating based on ambient temp.

6 x r13 dynatron 1u cpu coolers using independent controller for some hotter cpus.

Temperature/humity logger.

2 x 8 way KVM switches linked to interact with all 12 servers and header pc.

Sounds loud in the video but not audible outside the utility room it is in because the evaporative cooler is very effective at saving power by keeping fan speeds low.

Total hashrate 52Kh/min
