In this video I got over CPU mining and I give examples of this by showing a old HP z800 Xeon computer that I was given for FREE. Actually I was given two of these computers. How did I get that? Well I asked for it, see in Australia allot of people are moving away from the older desktop style computers and moving towards laptops and mobile computing. So allot of these old boxed just get dumped in the street from time to time.
In this video I use this computer as a example of how you can use them for CPU mining. Something to be aware of is this would only be a great option for people who have access to free or almost free power. The reason for this is that this model shown is actually not very power efficient so just be aware that you might actually spend more money than you make on power costs. And actually I only ever use this computer for video editing as the cost to running it is high.
However lets say you have access to Solar power then running one of these rigs might be an option. Shortly I will be getting Solar installed. But even then it will only offset my rig The KraKen during the day still it will make mining even more profitable and at some stage I will do a video on the install of my Solar setup.
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.
