First Mining Rig Build
123myIT’s First Mining Rig Build!
Well busy time of the year Christmas. For of all Merry Christmas to all. So I have been very busy trying to get into the Cryptocurrency market by learning how to build a first mining rig.
This video will show you how I got started as I go about building my first mining rig. the aim of this build is to mine Cryptocurrency’s. Mainly Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Below is a list of parts that I have used in this first mining rig build.
► Gigabyte motherboard
This motherboard is specifically designed for 6 GPUs and is cheap buy in price makes it a steal. Worst comes to worst you can reuse this motherboard for gaming if you wish.
► Celeron CPU
We choose the Celeron CPU because it’s cheap to buy. But also it’s cheap to run. 3930 has a power draw of 51 watts.
► EVGA Power supply
EVGA power supply are probably the best power supplies around. Their power supply’s efficient and they also have plenty of cables so that you are not daisy chaining to much hardware together.
► Crucial 8GB Memory
You can go the cheaper 4GB of ram. But just in case I want to turn this rig into a gaming PC I went with the 8GB of ram.
► Sapphire Nitro + 4GB
Sapphire RX 570s pound for pound probably the best cards that’s you can get with regards to hash rate and power supply. The higher the hash rate the higher the return on investment.
► PCIE Riser cards
PCIE riser cards, these little babies are used to lift the graphics cards off the motherboard allowing you to stack more graphics cards.
► Frame if you need one.
This hold all your equipment together in one frame. I made mine out of a chest of draws that someone threw out. Cheap and good for the environment as it doesn’t go into landfill.
I hope this helps guys. Heap more to come.
