Show us your Mining Rigs


Sooo, where are the HDD’s? :thinking: :wink:
I like the frame.

btw: I ordered a budget ryzen setup to improve my rig, mainly power consumpion. The old Phenom2 x6 I use sucks Power like crazy, like 100w during idle w/o hdds. I hope so see a siginificant power usage reduction.


Hd is a usb 32gb :slight_smile: running ethOS


Nice setup… I am looking at purchasing some hardware and wandering if it is better to have say 3 x 8TB drives or 12 x 2TB drives? And is there a recommended size for the plot file? Do you place multiple plot files on the same drive, or keep it at one pot file per drive?



I just got 5 8TB drives, and the price per TB was the same as for 2TB drives. I went for the 8 as it uses less physical space, and there is less was cabling and stuff to consider. As I want to expand it made more sense. I guess you could probably find cheaper 2TB drives if you search hard. Its all timing in the end…


Great setup bro.
How many coin you get every day with your 108T disks?


How many internal disk you have there?
And what’s your Tower model ?
Thanks for sharing info. I am building up one these days


Curious too.


It is an nzxt source that I had… nothing special.
about 10 disks… but they are very old. everything else I have is USB.


Hello crazydane,

I just purchased the SUPERMICRO CSE-846TQ-R900B, I am new to this so I was wondering if you could give me some tips.

what mobo do I need to put in here and CPU? Thanks in advance.


Hi Rodney,

For a mobo, I’d go with a SMC X10 series with a 2011-3 socket. Something like this one:

I have 2 of those and they have been rock stable, and I love the IPMI feature (console over IP).

For a CPU, the best bang for the buck would be a used ES with as many cores as you can afford. I run 14 core CPU’s which seems to be a sweet spot price wise.

Here’s a v4 14nm:

Here’s a v3 22nm:

I have 2 of each and have been very happy with them. They will plot at about 30,000 nonces.

For memory I use these sticks:


How much does it cost for that case. I searched it seems very expensive. Roughly 900 dollars


They are around $400 used on eBay (but often look brand new).

This guy still has some left (just picked one up from him a few weeks back):

Whatever you do, make sure you get one with the SAS2 backplane and not the old SAS backplane.


Hello crazydane,

thank you for the advise, that will be my next purchase.


Hello Adam,

I paid $498 including shipping on eBay. they had one more left if you are interested. you are right they are a little expensive.


Hello @crazydane,

Question: is it possible that I can turn my SUPERMICRO CSE-846TQ-R900B into a tri-miner using this MSI X370 GAMING PLUS AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
and this CPU by AMD RYZEN 7 1700X 8-Core 3.4 GHz (3.8 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 95W YD170XBCAEWOF Desktop Processor with this RAM by Ballistix Sport LT 8GB Single DDR4 2666 MT/s (PC4-21300) DR x8 DIMM 288-Pin Memory - BLS8G4D26BFSE (Red) or does it have to be a SUPERMICRO Mobo?


THanks for advice. They are expensive lol
