The Frontier GPU Test Rig

The Frontier GPU Test Rig

We use an open frame 6 GPU mining rig to test all new cards and components. It is with this rig that we accept or reject certain card manufacturers or card types.

“I like the open frame rig because it lets me quickly swap out cards, power supplies, riser cards, and measure heat and performance BEFORE deploying in our clients miners." - Arland Whitfield

Not exactly UL approved!

Unlike our commercial client rigs, this setup certainly is NOT UL approved, but we can crank through tests on 100 cards much faster than our 4u rigs. The open-air rig allows us to ID cards that have faulty cooling fans, or are running hotter than meets our spec while under load.
