My CPU Miner


#1

My CPU miner consist of 32x Intel processors, it has about 180 cores. It’s drawling about 29 amps @ 220v or 5,000 kWh/mo. I recently switched it over to 220v, to cut down the amps. It’s also easier to cool, the PSUs run cooler on 220v. I estimate the heat output to be about 16,000 BTU, free heat in the wintertime. :slight_smile:

Imagine if i was to put a HDD in each bay, I can only put in 2TB HDD without upgrading the RAID card. That would give me over 100TB!

$80 for a 20 amps 220v 12 outlet power strip, wired with 10 awg.

Nice setup!

Just wondering, is it profitble? Or do you see it as a long term investment?


#3

did u test for MIPS?


#4

No I didn’t. I think it may be about 1.84 tflops. The I used was the Xeon X5650 processors, and two are X5670.

Yes it’s profitable, and there’s plans of adding on. I pay ~$0.04/kWh so about $200/mo. And this is not like GPU mining, CPU mining holds it value better. Monthly income is about $425/mo, it actually went up little bit last month was ~$375/mo. The more power I use it actually pushed my rates down.


#6

Very interesting, too bad it won’t be profitable for me then since I pay ~$0.25/kWh.


#7

Holly **** $1250/mo, I feel for you man! You need to go solar or something. What are commercial rates in your area?


#8

Commercial rates are much better. Depending on how much you use ofcourse. But starting at $0.16 kWh. The more you use the cheaper it gets…


#9

@TateA nice setup :smiley: …and electricity rates xD


#10

very nice setup


#12

Is this still profitable and what coins also you mine and how?


#13

was mining xmr, at this time it is not profitable.
