How you route your gpu power cables? I have 3 gpus and I feel like the cables are too short and my rig is very messy. Also how you have enough slots in the power supply for everything, gpus, risers etc. I can maybe at best add 1 more gpu and then the 1000 watt power supply is full. Then I would have 4 cards. But mobo supports 6 :/. Ran out of space and slots in psu.
Hi TheGeekPub, I'm using the same motherboard ASUS EX b250 v7, and I can't get 4 cards working. I've tried several times and I've only managed to get 3 cards working in the x1 slot. Whenever I plugged my riser cable to x16 and x1 it won't show the POST screen and the GPU isn't recognized. Any help? I've set mining mode on asus bios on
You should mention with the veddha case that you will loose the top 2 i/o ports with probably most mobos, you may not need them but I think that is a flaw in the design of that particular open air frame.
How did you connect the fans I just bought the same case as you and the fans are all molex but after reading how scary molex can be especially with fire hazards I bought the same fans you have and was wondering if I needed to buy some sort of adapter I have 2 PSUs evga 1000 t2sim not sure how to connect them any advise is greatly appreciated
Hi, i need one question to answer about your Mining rig, can you help me? https://youtu.be/09W0I2VWyHk?t=514 You mention that you will go in to bios & select the Internal GPU as primar. I have the same MB but i cant find where to change that. Can you pls send me the right direction ? :) Thx in advance
Do you figure out how to enable on board hdmi video ?
I get stuck on this problem.
Cant get working on this motherboard.
No settings in bios to turn on video.
Maybe any one know how to enable on board video ?
It's all about price and ROI. You'll have to do the math. Use one of the calculators and see how fast they ROI based on their hashrate, power usage, and cost to buy. Buy the one with the better payback.
TheGeekPub hello and thank you for your quick response.
I looked on your site for information. The major problem I am having now is getting the motherboard to recognize the GPUs. I tried everything Looking on the Internet. I built the same exact rig as your first one. Can you please help with this? Thanx!
I've build 2 rigs with 580 4gbs, I've gotten 27mh/s and just under 820 watt at volt. I use the mining driver and my own vbios to up the memory MHz and keeping voltage down on the cores as they are barely used. At least for ethereum mining. Maybe I missed it but I think you forgot to mention that it's on the ethereum network you are getting these hash rates :)
Good video though me and a few buddies also uses the veddha rigs they are quite good. Some of them have small production issues typically thee screw holes are a bit wonky on some of the holes we've tried it a few times but nothing major
When you said you got the cards for a really good price, I thought you actually meant it but that link to Amazon connects you to cards that are overpriced and the ROI would be about 3 times what it should be. Unless you got them for less than the advertised $688 each
Sinister you missed my point man. I have 2 GPU mining rigs so I'm not asking for his connects. I was simply saying he made it sound like he bought from amazon and if he did then his ROI is 3 times what it normally should be. Then I replied back to him that he's basically making it sound like he got them from the link which is misleading to those that dont know any better. Lets be honest here the majority of the people who actually watch these videos are new to mining. So we have to try and not mislead them.
I wasn't asking for your source cause I would never ask anybody that. I would ask if they had any to sell me but not for their source. The way you worded it in your video made it seem like you purchased the cards from that Amazon link but what you're saying is thats not true? So you're linking your subs and viewers to a card that cost over twice as much as you paid and making it sound like it was a good deal?
And, if you ever want to get personalization, etc you can buy a legal copy, or a cheap copy from a key dealer, but those could be revoked since they typically are not bought legitimentally or meant for a different region, and according to LinusTechTips are against the EULA.
You spent WAY too much on the CPU. All you need is a Celeron...
You can also use the stock cooler and set the CPU fan to a lower RPM...CPU barely gets utilized when mining and with a cooler CPU like a Celeron it will still be under 50 degrees.
dont know what card your using but the rx 580 does not bring in $100 in a week or anywhere near that. . $100 more isnt as bad as what the current rx 580 prices are. im simply saying if feed the fire it will grow. I like mining and i dont sell my crypto for fiat. the dumb idea is to support sky high prices.
Low bass... seriously? That's not very smart of you. 1st. Welcome to capitalism. The price is what the market will bare. 2nd. Who give s a flying flip. If you can buy the card and make a profit mining its meaningless what it costs. You're afraid to spend an extra $100 for a card that can make that $100 back in a week. That's just dumb!
not bad compared to prices everywhere else online. i remember back in nov i bought 2 rx 580 for $260 each. and that was the going rate at many locations i checked. i 100% refuse to pay over $300 for a rx 580 or a gtx 1060 6gb. I feel like doing so helps the card scalpers continue buying up huge amounts of stock. to each there own but i sure wish the prices would normalize.
This is a really good video I've bought two of the veddha cases and I have 15 1070 and also 1070ti gpu's my knowledge of this is slim but this video is pretty informative. I am following and my notifications are on sir
A few things. The mining drivers ARE built into the regular drivers. You need to switch each card to 'Compute' mode in the Radeon Settings. Second, you can mod the BIOS on the AMD cards and get 29-31 Mh/s out of these cards
This is the second video of yours that I've watched and this one earned my sub. Not enough videos like this that give useful, coherent and concise tips for avoiding the usual headaches of building a rig (eg. install one card and load drivers before connecting the rest- brilliant!). Give us more like that! Thanks.
Let us know how those armor cards treat you. In my opinion and many others they are the lowest quality card out there from a major brand, my friends 980Ti armor set itself ablaze. If they work though, they are cheap so hey thats a plus.
Awesome video as always. I'm building my first one thanks to your links. With the risers, there is power on them, but I noticed in your video you connected the graphics cards directly to the power supply, does it matter?
Hmm I wasn't able to get the corsair powersupply that you had linked since it was out of stock, but the one I have only has 5 power cables that can go to the graphics cards. Looking online I did find that I can add another powersupply and there is a cable to connect the two. Is there something I could be missing or does the corsair one you use have 6 power cables for the cards? I have enough for each riser. Very odd. Thanks again!
i don't know the exact setting you have, but, i have 8 msi armor rx570 4gb, i do bios mod,put the compute mode on set the gpu to 1150mhz at 850mv, put the ram at 2100mhz at 925mv, i'am at 1135watt for 8 card and 234mh/s mining ETH avg of 29.25mh/s par card.
its a nice rig. i am building one myself. when i saw you were going to explain how to put it together i was excited but after seeing the video not so much. the physical assembly is kind of easy but it is the electrical details and programming details that we need. An example in one comment I saw that someone spliced all the fans into the mother board and you said you hoped they didn't blow the board. these are the real details we need. one big one is how to get windows on the hard drive and the optimization settings. thank you. please don't take this as a criticism but hopefully not to many boards have been blown because of some details not discussed. thank you and can you please do a part 2 video on details.
programming isn't hard. Hardest part is getting a wallet and being able to cash out if you are not using an easy program like Nicehash. The assembly of the open air case was difficult for me as it's the first time in 20 years of building PC that I didn't use a full tower case. The instructions were horrible. but I got it done had to "make it work."
Great video! I just built a 1060 rig like the first video. A couple tips. The poly part for the power supply can bolt onto the short side of the case. That is how I did mine. The power cables are much easier to deal with if the PSU is mounted sideways.
If you are building this for shorter video cards like the 1060 you can either switch the "L" shaped bar that the video card attaches to over to the other side or switch the top cross bar of the case so the risers have something to sit on. If you watch the 'tour' of the first rig you can see he custom mounted the riser bar and didn't use the screw holes.
On the 'clips' that connect the fans, I initially put them on like this video but then went back and put on row of clips on the top front, and the bottom row on the back. It works fine with them all on one side, it's just a lot more rigid with them both. The kit has machine screws so I used a reamer on all the fan holes so the screws started easier and used a drill with the clutch turned way down, that's a LOT of screw. I used the screws that came with the fans in places where I just needed to secure the fan grills.
The motherboard stand offs left a lot to be desired. Hard to get started and one totally striped out. It's really just luck of the draw with mass produced items. Nothing a little JB weld can't fix.
Even though you probably aren't going to have a monitor connected all the time, I would have preferred to use this board rather than the Biostar from the first build because of the HDMI video instead of DVI.
Now that you have the rig build vids can you make one showing how to start mining after that. Show changing the bios on the motherboard and where to download the mining programs and setting up the mining pools with desktop shortcuts. Your channel would be a one stop location to go from noob to miner.
That seems like pretty low power usage. Not sure what’s going on with my rig but it has 6x msi 580 8gb gaming x is pulling a total of 1240w for I’m the wall. I’m using two EVGA 850 PE. Could be because they were flashed and are slightly overclocked.
Your initial video was instrumental in my Rig build. The fans are screwed together leaning in a corner at the moment. I purchased a 5-into-1 splitter cable with 1 Molex and 4-pin and plugged into motherboard fan header. Nothing..... no lights and no fan movement. I'm ordering a Swiftech splitter next but I doubt that's my issue.
The machines are part of a pool. The pool hands out the work. But duplicate work does happen by design. Transactions on the network need to be verified as many as a 50 times to prove they are accurate and legit.
I have a love hate relationship with great videos like yours- I love the detail and excitement to learn and replicate what you have done but yet I Hate how impossible it seems that you got the cards for less than $300 when all Your links to the cards point to prices at least $625 and up for a single RX 580- please do share . I am sure I am not the only one wanting to know!
Any tips on how to get your deal? I found two fairly good prices, but hit the order quantity limit. You should also MOD the AMD Bios -- those modded cards with the Compute Driver should get you over 30MH/s and you can under volt to lower power. My rig has 5x 580's and is around 800 watts @ 150MH/sec...
mining isn't a scam.. although if you don't understand what it is, or how it works i can completely understand assuming that it is. it honestly looks like one if your only understanding of it is that you plug in this special computer and you get free money through the internet, but it's way way more complicated than that. it is definitely possible to make money doing it. however you don't make much. i have used my personal computer occasionally to mine when im not using it. i happen to have essentially the same gpu so i can shed some light on this question. at 22mh/s i was mining .01 etherium every week. his rig has about 6 times that. so i would assume he's getting roughly .06 eth a week. the price of eth however fluctuates significantly, so it's pretty hard to say exactly what you would make per day. currently as im writing this 1 eth is worth about $468. so at current prices he would be grossing about $28 a week... or $4 a day. definitely don't quit your job. it's really not something the average person should consider unless you have a lot of upfront cash to get a much much bigger setup than one or two of this type of system
TheGeekPub yo man would like to build a gaming pc but you miners makeing the price jack up you only doing it cuse of the money i doit cuse is my hobbi my passion but you miners jack up the prices is hard alredy whit the ram prices so hig pls stop this used to like bit coin infact i bough some back in the day but i lost them but know you miners are running this pls stop or at least slow down byuing every thing in the market place atte.axel Escobar. Edit pls read this sorry is i was to agresive but pls note that in the bigining of 2017 the rx580 was around 240 for one card and know the "cheapest" video card you can find is around 600 dollars
