I do have one fan that is directed towards the graphic cards and one fan on top to get the heat out.
 
I didn't have any issues under winter season & I even had 3 x gtx 1060 cards working full speed.
All the cpu 8 cores was on, but no cpu folding.
I did suspect, when the summer is coming that my computer will turn off due to graphic cards are so close to each other & because of the heat & full speed.
Lowering the power to 70 % helped A LOT.
However, it could be my CPU that got heated up & turn off my computer EVEN when my graphic cards was on full speed.
It wont turn off rest of the week because it is raining and the temp has lowered.
 
Side panel is always on.
 
my next mission will be a cpu change from fx8150 to amd athlon x4 640 & with boost performance enabled.
I will keep you updated.

Maybe using an Open Mining Case would would better than a closed case.
I use Open Cases for my 2 of my rigs that are cooled with Chillers.

Just want to point out...
If you are using a usb based riser, like in the mining case, it will limit it to 1x speed.
Flat ribbon risers are capable of 4x or greater..
Just sayin!
Oh, for the record
I know NOTHING!...lol


Big Thank You Everyone for using my Associate Code

Hello all.
I am back with some updates.
As mention before. These last couple of days, it has been really hot here and I manage to keep my server online with some changes.
 
I had
1 x gtx 1050 ti
&
2 x gtx 1060
 
I removed the gtx 1050 ti, but added another gtx 1060
So I have 3 x gtx 1060
I have reduced the power limit all the way down to 50 % because of the middle GTX 1060 gets too heated up.
 
Top gtx 1060 is between 76 & 82 degrees
Middle gtx 1060 is between 82 & 88 degrees
Lowest gtx 1060 less then 78 degrees & that is even high.
 
So far so good for now.
 
CPU Issue ( Still same cpu FX8150 )
When it comes to the CPU turnning off my system , I rotated the cooler 90 degrees to the right.
We know that 3 gtx cards produces a lot of heat. By having the cooler the way it was before, the heat had to find a different path, which is under/over & the sides. With other words, it had an impact on my cpu heat as well & turned off my system.
By rotating the cooler 90 degrees, the top fan has more easy access to blow the heat out.
 
Here is the video

I have actually bought my very first liquid cooler & will receive it within short time, hope it fits to my system.
I can keep an update on that as well.
 
Do comment & come up with ideas, I like to hear your idea.
