[Heading 2] Introduction
Welcome, everyone, to this article on how to turn a loud Antminer L7 script miner into a quiet home miner. In this guide, we will be utilizing the Fruitation kit with the AC Infinity found to add silencers to the miner, making it much quieter. We will go through the step-by-step process and provide useful tips along the way.
[Heading 3] Shutting Off and Unplugging the Miner
The first step in this process is to ensure your safety by shutting off the miner and unplugging all the connections. Safety must always be a priority when dealing with electrical equipment. On the Robin Money YouTube channel, we prioritize safety, and we recommend you do the same.
Before we continue, we would like to thank Coin Mining Central for sending us the ASIC miner. Without them, this video and article would not be possible. Be sure to check out the links in the description for more information on them and use the code “rabidmine” for a discount and free shipping.
[Heading 3] Understanding the Fruitation Kit
Now, let’s understand the Fruitation kit and the components it comes with. Depending on the ASIC miner you have, you will receive different components. In this case, we will be using the kit for the Antminer L7. It includes silencers that will fit perfectly onto the miner, reducing its noise.
To ensure you order the correct kit, you need to measure the distance from your main box to where the fans are located. This measurement will determine the size of the silencers you need to order. The Fruitation kit is available for multiple ASIC miners, so make sure to order the specific kit for your miner.
The kit components are also named and labeled, making it easier for you to identify which one is the right fit for your miner. Take your time to read through the names and measurements properly before placing an order.
[Heading 3] Removing the Fans
To begin the installation process, we need to remove the existing fans from the miner. This step requires you to remove the top covers of the miner, which are held in place by screws. Once the covers are off, you can access the fans and remove them.
Inside the miner, you will find zip ties holding the wires of the fans. These zip ties need to be cut off before the fans can be removed. Take caution while cutting the zip ties to avoid damaging any wires or components. Once the zip ties are removed, unplug the fans and set them aside. You can keep them for later use or discard them if you prefer.
[Heading 3] Auto Fan Control Feature
Now, let’s talk about the auto fan control feature that comes with the Fruitation kit. This feature allows you to control the fans of your ASIC miner based on its temperature. Rather than running the fans at maximum speed all the time, the auto control feature adjusts the fan speed according to the miner’s temperature.
The original kit comes with a simple controller that has 10 settings, ranging from level 1 to level 10. However, with the Fruitation kit, you receive a more advanced controller with 50 different voltage outputs. This allows for more fine-tuning of the fan speed based on the miner’s temperature. The auto fan control feature can greatly improve efficiency and reduce noise levels.
[Heading 3] Removing the Top Covers
To remove the top covers of the miner, you need to locate and remove three screws. One screw is located near the power supply, and the other two screws are above the power supply. Carefully remove these screws, ensuring not to misplace the small washers attached to them.
Once the screws are removed, you can lift the top covers and slide them off. This will give you access to the fans and the areas where the silencers will be installed. Set aside the top covers and keep them in a safe place.
[Heading 3] Removing the Zip Ties and Fans
With the top covers removed, you can now see the fans and the wires held in place by zip ties. Locate and remove the zip ties, making sure not to damage any wires or components. Once the zip ties are removed, you can unplug the fans and take them out of the miner.
Keep the screws, guards, and fans in a safe place. These components are no longer needed, unless you want to revert to the original configuration in the future.
[Heading 3] Aligning the Silencers
Now that the fans are removed, it’s time to align the silencers. The silencers come in different sizes and angles, depending on the miner you have. Take the appropriate silencer for your miner and hold it up to the fan area to determine the correct alignment.
To ensure proper alignment, compare the silencer with the next piece that will be installed. Make sure they fit together seamlessly. This step is crucial in ensuring the silencers are installed correctly and will effectively reduce the noise level of the miner.
[Heading 4] Installation Process
To install the silencers, follow these steps:
1. Fit the silencer into the fan area, aligning it properly.
2. Secure the silencer in place by tightening the screws or clips provided with the Fruitation kit.
3. Repeat the process for each fan area, ensuring all silencers are securely installed.
4. Once all silencers are installed, double-check the alignment and tightness of the screws or clips.
[Heading 3] Conclusion
By following these steps and using the Fruitation kit with the AC Infinity found, you can transform your loud Antminer L7 script miner into a quiet home miner. The installation of silencers will significantly reduce the noise generated by the miner, making it more suitable for home use.
Remember to prioritize safety when working with electrical equipment, and be sure to consult the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific miner model. With the right tools and components, you can enjoy a quieter mining experience.
