This was a fun project. Here is my 8 Raspberry Pi 3 B set up.

-(2x) Acrylic cases with wood inlay from Etsy. Comes with heatsinks. Four boards per case for compactness and transportability if needed.

-(2x) Sabrent 54W 5-port USB power pack (One per 4 board cluster)
https://www.sabrent.com/product/AX-QCS5/...escription

-(8x) Samsung 32GB 95MB/s (U1) MicroSD EVO Select Memory Card
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XWN9Q99/

-(1x) OKRAY 10 Pack 1ft Durable Nylon Braided Short Micro USB to USB
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019BZLXWS/

-(1x) K-tech Ethernet Patch Cable Cat6/5e/5 10Gbps
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075ZNDGZX/

-D-Link 16-Port 10/100 Unmanaged Switch
http://us.dlink.com/products/business-so...ss-16plus/

-Linksys WRT1900AC router

-Blue EL wire with transformer for looks, as this sits in my living room at the moment.  

I wanted to make this fairly modular, so future nodes can be easily added, or taken and installed anywhere. In its current configuration, all 8 boards fit easily on top of the switch.

All cables are in order of the rainbow (lol) and this allows for easy tracing of power/LAN/etc. if I come across any issues.   

Once the nodes/CPUs go under load, I will evaluate the need for additional fans/ventilation.

All in all it took about 3 weeks for build and programming (about 40 hours total)

fyi @ mitjag that router/switch of yours is sexy af.

More pics/clarification on parts/process would go a long ways guys! There is an edit button at the bottom of your post you'll be able to utilize.

Solar Miner (the most power efficient miner of them all)

  1. Raspberry Pi 3, Model B
  2. Solar Charger with Power Bank 5V
  3. Usb cable A to Micro to connect bank & board
  4. Rubber band to tie it together
Parts

You can even put it on a hat and share Skywire over WiFi.
Cool

Thanks, I have been wondering about this today since I am currently at work and did not knew on which timezone will you close the subscriptions. In 4-5h I will also post mine, which is still early into the 30th where I live so hopefully I will be taken into account. BTW, wanted to ask if it's mandatory to post on reddit as well so to be considered "in" or this thread is enough. I will add it on reddit as well anyways but I wanted to know if I have more time for that or it needs to be on 30th also. Will also give a heads up on Telegram ofc. 
Thanks.
