What If You Had a HOME CRYPTO MINING FARM FIRE? This past week I got thinking about my HOME GPU CRYPTO MINING …

  1. Great Video Hobbyist Miner – I was also looking into these – Thanks for covering this !
    I'm also looking into Fire suppression systems used in Data Centers, I'll let you know if I learn more about it

  2. Would go great in my grow tents. If something inside catches on fire will put the entire self contained tent out. Just worried about false alarms (where the ball could trigger prematurely if there’s no fire). The tents get to 50 degrees inside.

  3. Always a concern, great video! I think I would do one midway like you said and one up high too. I haven't looked into it but big question is, what would this stuff do to your farm if one accidently went off for some reason?

  4. Thanks! This is a key issue for home miners and, unfortunately, it does not seem to be as covered in the mining community as it should be. Can you test one of these balls in your next video? It would be interesting to see how they work when exposed to fire.

  5. The problem with this one is apparently its a knock off and the original one is Elide Fire Ball and those actually work really well, but these AFO ones don't have enough chemical inside to put out an actual fire.
    There are youtube videos about this. You should test it before you trust your farm to it.

  6. Got a scare this morning, woke and notice one of my cards disappeared from Hive dashboard, walked out to the miner and it said the card had a fatal error in RED letters . So I turned everything off and unplugged both psu's waiting 5 mins and rebooted the rig. 7 cards doing 220 mh/s on ethash, earnings are down but that is about to go back up cause they are pushing back difficulty bomb. Wish all of you success today, thank Hobbyist miner for the info.

  7. I just watched a few videos and one common theme is the fire goes out and starts right back up. I see this as an issue because unless the power shuts off or the rig crashes and shuts down, the fire can still start back up. Even with the power off completely the heat can bring the fire back to life.

  8. Had a seemingly good, still under warranty power supply from a reputable company burst into flames just a couple days ago. It was well within its safe operating range. Luckily I was in the room at the time and I was able to put it out.

  9. I've always wanted to get something like this and could not find one. Thanks. it is priced reasonably as well for what it does IF it does what it says it does! I got several of these and hope it actually does work!
