These pics are basically useless, but it is three of them I moved the PSU around since it is what I was using for peak consumption testing. Parts are mostly out of my closet so far I have all of $250-300 invested...Fighting with temps on the Z170 box, even with two 255CFM Delta's push/pull on the video cards garage stays too warm for the middle card. At night with the temp drop it is fine. Also finding RDP to be a bit of a pain for managing GPU's. Can't read temps most of the time, can't adjust clocks/volts such a pain.

I will post some actual running pics when I have them all together and good.

Supermicro S5 Platinum
Supermicro C7Z170-SQ
I7 6700T (stock cooler)
Corsair 2x8GB DDR4 3000
256GB PM951
2x Diamond R9 290X
1x Gigabyte R9 390
Antec TPQ-1200

This averages about $15 a day, cost $2.25 to run if my math is correct.

Supermicro S5 Platinum
Gigabyte X99m Gaming 5
i7 6850K (intel BXTS13A)
2x8GB Corsair 3200 (pulled from an unused HTPC)
128GB Samsung CM871
2x Gigabyte Windforce 3 980Ti
Antec TPQ-1000

Waiting on HSF for the CPU on this one, will be up in the next day or so. Should pull $8-10 a day and cost $1.15 to run

Supermicro S5 Platinum
Asrock X99 Extreme 4 USB3.1
i7 5820K (intel BXTS13A)
2x8GB Samsung 2133 OEM
128GB Toshiba Q300
1x EVGA FTW 980Ti
1x Diamond R9 290
Antec TPQ-1000

This one does $8-10 a day, cost $1.20 to run.












I have some other stuff running, but it is at no cost so I wont mention it.

I had worse once. It was weird having a 95 degree F garage in subfreezing winter.

I don't miss it honestly.

To be fair, it makes nearly as much sense as the stock market.

Yeah, it's not for the faint of heart that's for sure. Jumping in without understanding is a recipe for lost money.

@cdawall what coin are you mining?

He's probably autoswitching and selling straight to bitcoin. So the answer would be "whatever"

I am curious what pool regardless.

Yea, but even if the electricity was into the $300 a month range I am still sitting at $1300 out the door.



So on the low end $31 a day.... Still don't understand crypto currency.....should have cropped the toes out....lol

I have some other stuff running for no electricity price, I will be at about $70 a day with everything running.



These are the rigs that are up at the house right now. The crazy thing to me is a 290, beats yes beats a 980Ti. Both have mild overclocks.

I had worse once. It was weird having a 95 degree F garage in subfreezing winter.

I don't miss it honestly.

I would have actually loved that when I lived in SD. Heat one bay and work in the other.

To be fair, it makes nearly as much sense as the stock market.

I don't have much in as long as this lasts 3-4 months I could really care less. I am not investing in this left and right. $300 buy in right now and that will be doubled in two weeks.

@cdawall what coin are you mining?

All, lol most of it ends up being etherium just due to current market.

Yeah, it's not for the faint of heart that's for sure. Jumping in without understanding is a recipe for lost money.

YOLO

Nicehash, quick easy and I can be lazy.



This is the split right now.

Here are some more useful pictures

GB X99 box





So these draw 3.9A@12v or 46.8w, what is curious about those is they actually dropped temps on the GPU's enough to make their wattage negligible.

So have 4 rigs running 24/7 now. There has been a shift in their mining zcash is now more profitable to mine than ethereum so the nvidia cards are loving life and killing it with zecminer. If anyone remembers my trials and tribulations with RX480's and gaming you will be happy to know the GB X99 board is still a POS and I had to drop the cards down to 75% TDP for the board to stay running. While it only seems to have cut $.30 a day out of each card it frustrates me.

You have 4 running, I currently am at 9 running and I am about to build 2 more right now with 6 1060's each and maybe if i have time 2 more with a mix of rx470 and rx480. I post some pictures within the hour. I'll cant 4 of the rigs since I sent them to my friends house last night, my house doesnt have enough amps to run it all.

I'm lucky that my city's power cost is only .04usd cents per kWh

It probably wont release until after this is dead.

How are those 1060's doing. I am a bit disappointed in the 470 myself the old tried and true 390/290 seems to eat it for lunch still.

The only reason I got 1060's is because the rx470s and 500's are sold out everywhere or people want insane prices for them, I'm guilty of that also. Any money I make from selling extra 400s and rx500s go toward making more mining rigs. That and I'm building 20 rigs to a person that paid for it, every 4 rigs I make for him I can build one for myself from the profits that I make.

The issue with the rx470 is that you have to modify the bios memory timings to get better hash rate for mining ethereum. I dont know if I will mine ethereum with these 1060 3gb or zcash. I keep hearing zcash is better with Nvidia cards. I am still building the last one know, I am currently installing the OS, drivers, and mining stuff.

I'll know in about 30 min how they mine ethereum.

zcash seems to be making more on most AMD cards right now as well. Zcash jumped up in price, that being said it does favor nvidia. It is one of the few miners that the 980TI's I have beat out the 290X.

You can still get 570's and 580's from Dell atm:

http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/rade...rear-blwr-4m/apd/a9679690/graphic-video-cards

http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/radeon-rx-580-oc-8gb-gddr5-5m-3x-dpt/apd/a9679689/graphic-video-cards

You pay a small premium because it's Dell but they do tend to react a little slower to the latest trends

I can get polaris cards at an ok price, but I have to be patient.

Benchmark Scores Good enough for me
zcash seems to be making more on most AMD cards right now as well. Zcash jumped up in price, that being said it does favor nvidia. It is one of the few miners that the 980TI's I have beat out the 290X.



I can get polaris cards at an ok price, but I have to be patient.

I have some rx570s that I bought for $192 but I have to wait until the 18th to get them. Reason why I am testing these 1060s. If they work out I might keep them, if not they go back to Amazon. I can keep them for 30 days, mine on them and return them in them. I know, its bad thing to do.

I can't imagine the 1060 will get much over $3 a day...I mean the 1070 only gets $4

nice hash is the easiest way to get up and moving. It will end up using dagerhashimo and mining for ethereum, those cards are good for 31-32ish MH/s depending on how they are clocked. That is 4.50 to 5.50 a day.

Picture time...
The 1st picture is the 1st mining machine I built and 1st computer I ever built. So this not only makes me some extra cash since I am bored most of the day just it taught me some skills. I paid too much for the open air frame. Every other picture is just a $20 double stack shelf from Home Depot.
@Norton thz for the monitor, its being used every day. Its on the last picture.

I have been thinking about setting something like that up in a shed. We will see how pricing holds out and how profitability looks in a couple of months. If it is still up expect an open air frame and a shed with forced air cooling.
