Next select a motherboard for your mining rig. Boards support a variable number of graphics cards, and may only accept specific types of processors and memory. See the Details of each board to quickly identify proper pairings.
You can also buy used and new graphics cards from Amazon they are trust worthy. You were asking about the Mining bandwidth – you don’t have to worry about it either as for 6 GPU mining it would consume very fewer data as far im concerned 3GB per month is enough.
It is strange, yes. I thought that too. At some point I abandoned the Claymore and started WinMiner just to see in the command prompt that… its using Claymore 9.7 Beta. It connected and started mining from the WinMiner pools. In a few hours I tried again the newest Claymore and it connected to mine ETH.
6) A Case – Again this can be quite a difficult choice to make as it will depend on your GPU’s and whether you are using GPU risers. You don’t want components sitting on top of each other as there is a fire hazard potentially. You can leave the whole system open air or even build your own case to give it that personalised touch. You can buy off the shelf rigs from a couple of providers – for example SW mining here have their own set of rigs that take up to a week to ship. They do all the hard work for you.
I have ETH contract with Genesis for 2 years and one with same Hash rate with a competitor but 1 year contract. Genesis has consistently paid out more than the competitor. Happy with Genesis contract. When I bought from competitor, all Genesis was sold out. I have bought again now that it is available.
Up to a point, more VRAM will also improve performance. The present difference between a 4- and 8-gig version of the same card can be up to 5 MH/s (To clarify, MH/s stands for megahash per second, and a megahash is a million hash attempts.)
Motherboards with on-board graphics (also referred to as integrated graphics) often are either problematic or unusable when more than one GPU card is installed. Choose a motherboard with no on-board graphics.
Mining is also the mechanism used to introduce Bitcoins into the system: Miners are paid any transaction fees as well as a “subsidy” of newly created coins. This both serves the purpose of disseminating new coins in a decentralized manner as well as motivating people to provide security for the system.
You can determine the rating for efficiency by dividing the hashrate by the power consumption. Newer cards are usually more efficient. This rating is of prime importance—given that electricity is a fixed, ongoing cost. In other words, the more efficient your card, the more profitable it will be once you’ve received the ROI.
1) A MotherBoard – A motherboard is the brain of the computer and is what you build everything onto – the base of your mining rig. The main feature you are looking for in a motherboard is the number of GPU slots it has as this will how many graphics cards or GPU’s it can fit – and in the end your total hashing power. 3 PCI Express slots will mean you can fit 3 x Radeon HD 7950 with a hashrate of 20 MH/s each – or a total hashing power of 60 MH/s. A PCI Express slot is a connection port on the motherboard and looks like the picture below – they are often coloured white but can be beige – you can get other types of slots but most GPU’s work on a PCI express.
Step 8: Now you need to download Ethminer which makes your GPU or CPU run the hashing algorithm that is integral to securing the Ethereum network through proof of work. You can download this here and be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to get the right version – the latest and most up to date one is right at the end.
One can simply leverage a setup at home and start mining Ethereum by using GPUs. You can use the ASIC resistant Ethereum algorithm for mining Ethereum with dedicated processors. Since Ethereum hardware constitutes the most important mining component, it needs to be addressed with due diligence.
André Wolke, co-founder of technology education company Validity Labs, is a firm believer in the power of quick experimentation to systematically explore the large product design possibilities opened by the combination of these two technologies. Having personally experimented with Bitcoin mining as a means to generate useful heat and blockchains to optimise banking processes at Credit Suisse; he was left wanting a higher throughput method to systematically explore other design ideas concerning financial services, privacy, information sharing etc.
Mining solo, while sometimes more profitable, it’s usually not the right choice for most miners. When mining solo, you are doing all the work alone which means that you’ll receive the entire block reward, the problem is that mining is also based on a luck factor, which means that if your hashpower isn’t high enough, you may never see a reward come your way. With pool mining, however, this variance is eliminated and you receive payments that correspond to the portion of the work that you have done.
As my title says, I am a complete newbie to the Ethereum Project, but not to the cryptography in general. Although this will be the first time I will consider investing in the mining process. And I just would like to know, what is the best current hardware is out there for mining, and where best to find available in stock to ship.
I reckon just try running Claymore and see what it says. I’m not up to date on Ethereum mining but I heard that the ETH blockchain has gotten too big to sync normally. I don’t know how miners are handling that but presumably some kind of pruning or other solution is used.
That would depend on what RX you have as each one as different hashrates for different algos…as I speak the RX 580 would get you $5.58 profit mining Pirl but only $4.41 profit mining Eth, check whattomine to see whats more profitable on that day
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference. Ether, the platforms own native cryptocurrency is mined with the “Eth-hash” algorithm. Earned Ethers can be autotraded in the dashboard to Bitcoin, Zcash and other Cryptocurrencies.
The real challenge comes with keeping all of this cool. As once you go beyond 2 or 3 video cards you will have to run the pc out of a case. But that isn’t a concern at first, a few case fans will keep air moving nicely.
Thank you for your dedicated support and becoming part of the resistance! Our coalition is growing and expanding to include different environmental organization… and other federal employees. We will be making a coalition expansion announcement very soon. Our goal is to build the strongest coalition to ensure the protection of our environment, wildlife, air, water, and health.
If you live in a hot region and use air conditioning, you actually consume more than double the listed electricity because the heat being produced in the computer has to be subsequently removed by the air conditioning, which is not 100% efficient.
Les calculs de rentabilité sont forcément dépendants du prix de revente de la crypto monnaie à un moment donné. Mais comme il est impossible d’assurer un prix de revente, il faut toujours prévoir plusieurs scénarios (baisse du prix, augmentation du prix).
Double click your Bat file to start the miner.  The miner will start, run the setx commands to set those environment variables, initialize each of your GPU’s, build the DAG file on each of your GPU’s and start hashing away.  Let it run for about 20 seconds and then click “s” to have it show your Hashing speed.  You can use that back in the calculator again to determine a more accurate representation of your earnings.   
I wouldn’t burden a laptop with the kind of thermal overhead that mining causes. It’s just way too much wear and tear for a mobile device with a very low thermal envelope. But an external GPU using a USB interface? I’ve not heard of this and know nothing about it.
Below, we rank our favorite AMD cards for Ethereum mining according to the overall value for the money. Note that the mining performance of the Polaris architecture is common to AMD’s venerable RX range, and it is rapidly degrading with each new epoch.
To make money, miners must buy GPUS (graphics processing units) from AMD or Nvidia, then pay the costs of electricity and labor to run them, and maintain giant warehouses to store the machines. In return, miners get a supply of ether each day if they possess sufficient processing power. Because their costs have remained stable while ether’s price has surged from around $10 at the start of the year to a high of $400 in June, miners’ potential profits have increased 40-fold.
Mining is intentionally designed to be resource-intensive and difficult so that the number of blocks found each day by miners remains steady. Individual blocks must contain a proof of work to be considered valid. This proof of work is verified by other Bitcoin nodes each time they receive a block. Bitcoin uses the hashcash proof-of-work function.
Die Zeit als zu berücksichtigender Faktor in der Berechnung von Wirtschaftlichkeit und Break-Even. Im Grunde stellt sie das Maß aller Faktoren her. Strom wird nach kW pro Stunde berechnet, die Hashrate pro Sekunde, die Hardware nach ihrer tatsächlichen Laufzeit bzw. Arbeitszeit und der Wert eines Coins hat sich in Tagen, Monaten oder Jahren hoffentlich vervielfacht.
3) Hard Drive – You need a hard drive to store your operating system and your software for mining. A standard SSD drive will do (an SSD hard drive is just a storage device and is called solid state as there aren’t moving bits which can break). The size will depend on what you are planning to do when mining. If you are planning to download the entire blockchain and mine as shown in this guide here – then you will need to take into account how big the blockchain will become and need to spend a little more. If you are just going to mine ethereum as part of a pool then you don’t need to store the blockchain and can get a smaller SSD drive. We used the SSDNow V300 120GB. Buy it here.
After arriving home, I looked into option number 3 and decided it was worth it. Option number 3 is EthOS, a modified version of Ubuntu for sale on Gpushack. This operating system is designed solely around mining Ethereum and other similar cryptocurrencies and made the process so much easier. It did cost $40, but that money has already been recouped from increased uptime. EthOS comes with all the different mining software already installed along with all the drivers for common GPUs and motherboards. The only configuration that has to be done once you get it installed and up is writing the remote or local config file that tells it which miner to use and all the various settings, the details of which are best left for another post.
Sachez que si vous souhaitez vous lancer dans le minage de l’une des crypto-monnaies présentées ici, vous aurez besoin soit d’un rig de minage ou bien d’acheter une carte graphique suffisamment puissante pour débuter dans cette activité.
You’ll want to work in an Ethereum Mining Pool. Think of solving block hashes as buying lottery tickets, the more computers working on a block the higher chance you have to solve. Being in a pool with thousands will give you a more consistent payout than mining alone.

  1. Another idea is to use my own laptop (toshiba R700), at night, using the same USB extenders but maybe the laptop power is not ready to supply the GPU. What is your opinion on this? In the case that it would be advisable to use laptop, would this interfere with my normal working or would it be advisable to let it work only when I am not using the laptop?
    Ce qu’il faut surtout prendre en considération avant même le coût énergétique, c’est un ratio consommation/rendement. Les monnaies virtuelles s’inscrivent dans une démarche ultra capitaliste puisqu’on fait “soi-même” sa monnaie, et que celle-ci n’est minée qu’à des fins spéculatives (espoir de gain sur les fluctuations du cours etc). il faut bien comprendre qu’ici il ne s’agit pas d’engendrer une richesse utile au plus grand nombre en produisant du service quel qu’il soit, mais de générer artificiellement de la richesse “sans rien faire” si ce n’est patienter, et qu’en bout de chaîne ces masses d’argent qui circulent profitent avant tout à ceux qui ont soit la capacité de miner à grande échelle et suffisamment tôt pour voir la valeur de leur réserve croître, soit à ceux qui savent jouer sur les fluctuations de cours en détenant de grosses quantités… mais certainement pas à l’utilisateur qui peut se voir du jour au lendemain “ruiné” fuite à une chute colossale du cours ponctuel de cette monnaie. L’immense différence entre une devise “concrète” (je tiens aux guillemets) c’est qu’elles sont globalement garanties par des banques centrales, des états, et qu’en conséquence de quoi celles-ci ne sont que très rarement susceptibles de voir leur valeur divisée par 1000 du jour au lendemain. On peut me parler des dévaluations, des chutes de cours (cf le Mark pendant la république de Weimar par exemple, ou le dinar yougoslave en son temps)… mais là c’est de la valorisation CONCRETE sur des problématiques à une échelle mondiale, et pas d’un effet de bord du mode de fonctionnement intrinsèque de la monnaie elle-même.
    What kind of GPUs would you use? Do you have any examples? I’ve heard of external GPUs for workstation docks. In theory, it should work, since cryptomining generally runs off the GPU and doesn’t use the CPU very much.
    The name of the chipset produced by Nvidia or AMD for each card remains the same (such as RX 480). You’ll notice that various models are available from different Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). For example, you might encounter the MSI Gaming Radeon RX 480.
