Bitcoin mining setup disassembled

Several years ago we started hosting a bitcoin mining operation with 8 GPUs for one of our customers. The GPUs (on the left) are pretty much obsolete now so the customer has decided to have them removed. Surprisingly.

It was kinda fun and a challenge to keep these guys cool during full operation. The power required to for this entire setup nearly tripled our electric usage unfortunately. It produced so much heat we did not need to run the heaters in the building for at least two winters. In the summer time a hood was installed around the liquid cooling reservoirs and fans which were cooling the GPUs and ventilated to the exterior of the building using large attic fan enclosure.
