    After seeing all of these mining rigs on here.... I feel like a dumbass, wasting my time mining with 2x7970s. Which I plan/planned on getting some of the dual miners just to mine some scrypt coin.
    Some badass rigs you all have there.

    Selling my 80MH+ X11 farm (46 GPUs, gold rated PSUs, DDR3, powered risers, etc in 13 rigs) for 6 BTC. Broken down and ready to go in western Wisconsin (54701). 95% of the parts have existing factory warranties and are unregistered (I have all the old invoices in my Newegg, Amazon and Tiger Direct accounts). Nearly everything has factory boxes, manuals, and accessories. Must pick up.

    I do appreciate the mining community fire sale on 79xx cards these days. A local miner just sold me a 7970 for $120 and he's got more at that price if wanted a second one.

    Fail me.

    77 grid seeds... does 26 mh/s total, about 450w.

    Also have a dozen blizzard/fury (1.3mh/s each), 2 22mh/s cyclones, 2 14-15? mh/s black widows. I'll get a picture, but they are boring in comparison.

    Those are scrypt devices, Sunni. Not SHA stuff.

    Each of those gridseeds do about 330-350khs each.

    I know, the price of btc needs to be over $850 per for any sort of profit given my current electrical rates.

    But still! ;):cool:

    Decent setup but I cringe at noise and power those cards are using.

    the reference 290x are loud as hell. Everything else is pretty quiet. but yes, its loud and hot and power hungry. Luckily power is cheap here in TX and mining will be over soon after winter. I'm ready to get rid of it!

    i spent a total of 864$ over the course of a few months, plus using a PSU and 280x I already had, and now I have something like 340 ethereum worth over 4000$. I wish i had setup 10 machines, but I definitely wouldn't start now. The heat here in Texas this summer was a bit much to deal with and I'm sure stressed the hell out of the hardware, but everything is working well. I am ready for it to be over with and I sit on it for a few years.

    I miss the mining days, especially the alt coin boom in 2013. Those were some fun days having tons of GPU's running in my spare room looking like a mad man. It was like the wild west, everyday a new coin came out, btc price rises, diff rises, the pool you're in just keeps getting bigger and bigger everyday. I kinda wish ASIC's for scrypt coins never came out, and that it was strictly GPU/CPU only...

    Figure this needs a fresh pic after 6+ months of nothingness.

    Current setup as listed in sig:
    Miner 1.5 | MSI Z77A-GD65 | G1610 | 4GB DDR3 | 5x RX 470 + 2x RX 480 | Rosewill Quark 1200 | ethOS
    Miner 2.5 | MSI Z87-G55 | G3220 | 4GB DDR3 | 7x RX 470 | EVGA 850BQ + Antec 430HE | ethOS
    Miner 3.5 | Asrock Z87 Killer | G3220 | 4GB DDR3 | 5x RX 470 + 1x RX 480 | EVGA 850BQ | ethOS

    The Asrock has been pretty finicky lately. Kinda bummed, having trouble with a few of the PCIe slots these days, so its only running 4 of the 6 cards at the moment. Replacing it with an MSI Z97 Gaming 5 (can you tell I'm an MSI fanboy?) as soon as it shows up and have another RX 470 on the way to fill that one out to 7 cards.

    With 18 cards running, I'm right at 475-480mh/s currently. Everything is running at 1050 core, powertune level 3, and memory flashed with 1500 straps running between 1900-2000 depending on RAM type.. been able to get the Samsung chips to 2000. My Elpidas and Hynix's generally don't like anything over 1900.

    Need to pick up another PSU and find some more deals on a few more cards. I've got enough room on that wall and on my switch for one more machine there, so I'll run the Asrock with 4 cards for a while and then maybe try to find a deal on another MSI Z77A-GD65 / Z77A-GD55 / Z77 MPower to expand up to 7 cards.



    Still need to tidy up the wires a bit, but I haven't had the time just yet. Just moved things to this new layout (hanging the cards from the mounting brackets) in the last couple days, but I'm really happy with it for ease of access and airflow.



    EDIT 5/20/2017:
    Replaced the Asrock board with an MSI Z87-G45 and got a 7th card running, was at 550-560Mh/s.
    Then bought another 7 cards for the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 but decided to mess around again with the Asrock board to see what I could figure out. Few more BIOS tweaks (I've found that PCI-e Gen 2 across the board works best for me, not 2-1-1), and I got 6 of the 7 PCIe slots working and mining again. Looks like I managed to break one of the presence pins on the 7th slot (PCIE0), so I guess I'm limited to 6 cards on that board. Now at ~715Mh/s.

    With the recent spike in ether value, I've decided to swap the 1080Ti over to mining ether exclusively and got away from Nicehash. It is happily adding another 35-36Mh/s @ somewhere around 150w, putting my total right now at about 750Mh/s.

    Still have the Z97 Gaming 5 doing nothing, so I decided to go ahead and pick up 6 more cards to fill it up. I'll end up with 4x 7-gpu rigs and 1x 6-gpu rig. Now I'm definitely done. Garage is getting super hot now, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to move air in/through/out. As it is, now I have to run another circuit to the garage before I can get the 5th machine up and running anyways. Think I'm making the jump to 240v. Should put me into the 930-940Mh/s range... soooo close to 1Gh/s!!
