This post is aimed at solving some of the problems that I have had with rig management. With the main aim being to keep my rigs clean and running all day everyday.

Although for the main I have had few issues, temperature control and being able to replace components quickly is a must. Having a few back up parts ready to go. Also being ready to manage heat and electricity consumption is very important.

I will give you a breakdown below of some of they key bits of kit you need to consider to keep your rigs going 24/7.

Rig Cleaning

Although mine are not super clean, I do try to give them a once over monthly.

Falcon Dust, Off Compressed Gas

This is a quick solution to give your rigs a blast off and get some of the dust from inside and outside. I started using this and then moved on to an electric blower as I had more graphics card to keep clean.
