    Don't do GPU mining anymore done that back in 2014. CPU mining is where its at! (I think I need a bigger rack!)

    Verium mining. Still got x2 more DL385's to put on

    arnt they the old amd dual or quadcore opterons? ddr2 useds in them aswell I think, my guess is you paid around £15-20 each from an online re cycling centre based in Runcorn. I have to ask, why would you mine with them? they'll use more electric than youll ever make in coins

    ASRock H110 Pro BTC+
    Corsair HX1000W
    Intel Celeron
    3x1060 OCUK Value
    2x1070 ASUS

    Cards set at 67% power, pulling 500W from the wall, currently mining at 0.0012 BTC/day on NH2.

    I'll build a rig when I get round to it but spent ages fannying around getting the board to see all 5 cards at the same time - got there by luck as much as anything else.

    Curious, I am guessing there is a fan etc to push pull the air in the tube's?

    How have you set it up? Planning ahead for the summer :)

    It was the summer when I posted that pic!

    There's 10x 1070s in there now. You can see the fan on top of the box connected to the ducting. I've stopped it venting outside and it's warming the flat nicely at the minute, still don't need the heating on yet, making money and warming the house double bubble!!

    If you're planning something similar (or at least an enclosed box to vent from) then I highly recommend some sort of filtration. You can't see it on those pics, plus I've altered it somewhat, but the inlet air is filtered via extremely fine stainless steel mesh which cleans up really easily either brushing it off or hoovering it.

    Still waiting for my mining case to arrive but I really want to get going with mining so I decided to knock together this in the mean time from the overclockers cardboard box.

    Out of curiosity for those that have been doing it a while. How much have you made vs. how much you spent in electricity and rig?

    Dec 2013 to March 2014
    £1000 hardware (sold £400) so net £600
    £700 electric.
    Total: £1300

    Made 1.6 bitcoin, which at the time was worth about £400, Traded it around upto 2.2, then lost some so back down to about 1.8. So in today's money that is £12'000.

    Winning :D

    Never stopped since December 2013

    My rigs have changed here and there but in total, according to Localbitcoins i've sold 27.9 BTC over that period. Shame I don't have that sitting around at the moment with current prices.

    Over that period if I remember correctly I bought 2 7990, 15 280x all of which were sold. Some 750Tis were bought and then sold and i'm currently running 2x 1070, 2x 1050Ti and a 1080Ti

    Had a tidy up of my cellar machine at work. The 1070s didn't like playing ball with my 1050Tis so removed them and put them into another machine.

    Nice space there for a few more 1070s me thinks.

    Maybe go directly into the 4 pin molex on the riser rather than use the sata adapters? Are they warm to the touch?
