Immersion vs. Non-Immersion Cooling for Bitcoin Mining
Compare single phase immersion cooling and fan powered cooling for bitcoin mining to determine the most efficient and cost effective mining solution that will fit in a 40-foot shipping container, including set-up costs.
Immersion Cooling Requirements
Switching to immersion cooling for bitcoin miners requires additional
that can make start-up costs higher than when using a fan-based system.
To use immersion cooling, individuals
immersion tanks, liquid coolant that is safe for the equipment, pumps and piping to circulate the coolant and a heat rejection system, such as dry coolers, to cool the heated coolant.
Individuals can also purchase
immersion cooling systems rather than assembling each component individually.
