This is just an initial setup. I will play around with it more and update. Also plan on the cable management eventually. Hope this helps out and adds to the community.
Raven mined so far 208 coins
Average of 40 megahash
Power consumption is around 315 watts so far. I am going to add more 1650's as I can get them. I also plan on downloading the Raven chain and adding it as a node. I need to VLAN it off before I do all that first.
