Nice rig!

As for external fans, Canadian Tire sells the Turbo Aire. They are fairly good for 1 rig cooling as they have som very direct flow. Don't expect any static pressure though, they do fail there and are also fairly expensive.

Nah, i think most people shut their rigs off as profitability is gone.
Lucky i made some money in the beginning because selling R9 280xs@ $150-200 hurts.

I only made $150 from my two 280X's. then sold them for less 6 months later, so basically made nothing. I guess I can look on the bright side, I made most of my money back.

Yea, mining gear is super cheap right now. I ended up keeping 2 r9 290x's for my personal rig and 2 R9 280x Toxics for the backup machine. Ive sold well over 30 GPUs now and still stuck with some, nevermind the PSUs and Motherboards. LOL

Yea, I think the only way to make money now is to buy and sell btc. You could try renting on something like betarigs but no money there either. Alt coins are a joke, BTC is all that matters.
