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?

thanks!


#26

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…


#27

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


#28

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


#29

Curious too.


#30

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:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813182928

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:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-E5-2683-V3-ES-QEY7-14Core-2-0GHz-120W-35M-LGA2011-3-Processor-CPU/112801659423?hash=item1a4380ba1f:g:WuIAAOSwor1aeuZs

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:

#33

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


#34

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.


#35

Hello crazydane,

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


#36

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.


#37

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?


#38
