This video will show you how to build a mining rig on a budget.
This video will show you how to build a mining rig with a strict budget. I have tried to do a build where I keep the costs down to help people who might not have a massive budget but still want to get into mining. In this build I really only buy three parts. Power supply risers and graphics cards. The rest I was able to get for free.

123myIT’s video on How to Mod Sapphire RX 570 4GB Elpida Bios!
I use MSI Afterburner to adjust the clocks of the cards until they become stable. Stability is very important for mining cryptocurrencies as this allows your rig to keep mining when it might otherwise go offline. Because you are squeezing every inch of power out of your GPU by over clocking the GPU and undervolting it to save on power consumption.
AfterBurner Settings I use to get rig stable.
Power limit: -6 or -4
Mem Clock: 1970 or 1980 or 1990 or keep going up by 10 till its stable.
You can download the modded bios from the 123myIT Downloads section here. There is two different versions. 256 size version and the 512 size version. The Sapphire cards for some reason have two different type of bios sizes. Both should work fine, but you use these bios at your own risk. This bios was created by people on the Anorak.Tech website.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Nicehash, Nicehash was a platform whereby miners could sell the hashing power in exchange for bitcoin so it was a pretty good way, reliable way, nice and easy way for people to get started. What you needed to do was download the Nicehash mining software put in your wallet address and you can start mining straight away.
I did a video recently where I build my first mining rig and you’ll see that i’ve got a video called first mining rig build.
In this video I show you how to build a mining rig and then later i’ll show you an update of that mining rig. So what was I mining at the time when I first started I was mining Nicehash with bitcoin and probably making about $300 worth of bitcoin.
Since then I wanted to change from Nicehash across to Claymore dual miner which allows you to mine both Ethereum and another coin like Decred for example so I started doing that for one month. I was about to change back to Nicehash and start using Nicehash again as the coin seemed to be getting more and more profitable. Bitcoin just seem to be going up and up so it seemed like a sensible thing to actually go back to and to try and get as much Bitcoin as I could get.
However when I went to try and start up the Nicehash miner you can see that it’s a just times out with a Nicehash sma information message.
Its really sad for the community really sad for the time and effort into in a building this business up and running it I just think a lot of people are going to miss out because of the demise of Nicehash I mean who knows they might be able to resurrect themselves, maybe not?
