Nvidia Mining Rig – The Gambler Build

Nvidia Mining Rig – The Gambler Build

This video will show you how I went about creating an Nvidia Mining Rig for my friend Phil. Phil likes to Gamble so I called this build The Gambler!
I have setup a full list of parts below if you wish to copy this build. And I have tried to add in some secondary parts list incase some parts are no longer available.
The Gambler build is very simular to my RX570 The Kraken build accept I swapped out the AMD RX 570 cards with Nvidia 1070s.
Through this video I also give some tips when building a new rig to do with troubleshooting setup and faulty risers.

Nvidia Mining Rig Riser

a faulty Riser can cause all sorts of issues with mining rigs. The more hardware you add the more chance of failure.

Cryptocurrency Wallets and Exchanges

Cryptocurrency Wallets and Exchanges

In this video I talk about Cryptocurrency Wallets and Exchanges. I use the website www.cryptocompare.com because I find it has allot of really good info on it if you are looking to find out more info on Cryptocurrency Wallets and Exchanges.
Once you find the Wallets menu on the site have a look through at the different types of wallets you can find.

The ones I talk about and use is Exodus.

Cryptocurrency wallets

The good thing about Exodus is that is supports a wide range of Cryptos. Bitcoin Ethereum Litecoin and other.

Exodus Wallet

These wallets allow you to send and receive directly from your Computer. I use this wallet on my Windows computer. Also the wallet has a backup feature which is really cool.
Down side with the Exodus wallet is that it only works on one computer at once.
The tabs across the top of the Cyrptocompare website which allows you to filter the types of wallets. So for example if you wanted a wallet that was highly secure you would click the Secure tab.

Bitfinex exchange is the next thing I talk about. Once you have mined Cryptocurrency the next thing you can do with it is trade it on an Exchange. In this video I use Bitfinex as an example, see the picture below.

Bitfinex Exchange

This is a good way to make extra coins but it also requires allot of patience. Which is something I struggle with! Also the other really good thing about exchanges is that you can trade your mined Crypto for different types of alt coins. Let say you have a good feeling about EOS then you would be able to Trade your mined earnings for the coin EOS.
So I show you how to setup your account and deposit your first coins into Bitfinex. I use it to mine my coins directly to the exchange saves me allot of hassle with gas fees from the myetherwallet wallet.

Well thanks for watching and reading guys I hope this one helps you out.

Cheers

First Mining Rig Build

First Mining Rig Build

123myIT’s First Mining Rig Build!

Hi all
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.

First Mining Rig Build

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.

SSD
Your SSD allows you to store the Windows 10 software along with the Software that you will use for mining example NiceHash or Claymores.

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.

Use iCloud to backup your iPhone iOS devices

Use iCloud to backup your iPhone iOS devices

This video will show you how to use iCloud to backup your iPhone, iPad or iPod. With iCloud you can backup all your contacts, photos, videos and data. iCloud starts with FREE 5GB storage.

Download OS X El Capitan

This video will show you how to Download OS X OS X El Capitan.

Some people love it, some people hate it, some people can’t notice any difference between Apple’s latest version of OS X El Capitan and the earlier version Yosemite.
So what are the differences you might ask?
Lets give you a quick run down.
* Split View – Allows you to have two apps open on the one screen “Something Windows has been doing for a while now” 🙂
* Mission Control – Allows you to see all the Windows open at the same time on one screen.
* Call out you cursor – This is a funny one, I was doing the video Download OS X El Capitan I move the mouse quite quickly and the mouse went massive. See the picture below.

Download OS X El Capitan - Call out your cursor

So from what I can so mostly is little changes, nothing that I would consider really life changing additions to the operating system. More like little updates.

In this video however we will show you how to download OS X El Capitan so that we can use it to create an OS X OS X El Capitan USB installer drive. The benefits of this is that if you ever want to roll back to a version of OS X that may have run better on your Mac you can do this quite easily by doing a clean install.

So to download OS X El Capitan, go to http://www.apple.com/osx/ and click on upgrade now.

OS X El Capitan

You will need a Mac to download the software as well as an iTunes account user name and password. However once you have a copy of the OS X file you can copy that to a Windows computer if you wish.
Once the file is downloaded, simply copy it to the desktop and shortly I will put another video up on how you can make a USB installer drive from this file.

Stay tuned.

Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015

This video will show you how to install Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015.

Well here it is guys, the video you guys have all been waiting for. I have had quite a few people ask me about installing Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015 and 2014 models and have been a bit slow to get this video out as the hardware is not cheap as you all can imagine. So if the above video helps you out, please help 123myIT out by clicking on the donate button on the left hand side of the page. All donations will help purchasing new hardware.

Some of you will be upset to know that I didn’t get any errors when going through the video. To be honest I kind of expected maybe 1 or 2 problems. But the setup went very smoothly. Even the Boot Camp drivers at the end of the video applied correctly.

You will need 2 things to complete the setup.
1. USB drive 8GB or larger
2. Windows 10 or 8 ISO file which you

In the Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015 video I link to another video called Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. This will help you get the Windows 8 or 10 ISO file which allows you to then create the USB which you use to install Windows 8 or 10.

I was able to get a copy of the Boot Camp Drivers from the WININSTALL USB that I can confirm work with Windows 10.
I have labelled it Windows 10 64-bit Captured by 123myIT.com BCD and you will find under the MacBook Pro page here.

All up the install took about 1.5 hours, with the downloading of the boot camp drivers seeming to take forever. The file being around 1.2GB in size meaning if you are on a slow internet connection it could take hours for just that part to complete. So be prepared to wait.

Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015

Overall Windows 10 on MacBook Pro 2015 seems to run very well and I will take a closer look at how Windows 10 works in future videos. So stay tuned. 🙂
