Megacoin is another crappy coin, nothing special, again, mine and dump the heck out of it.
Argentum is rather decent, like a litecoin/mincoin clone and Baritus is one of the devs (not the main one though), the main site has decent graphic design and the idea involves some block size changes and random block rewards (always say 10 coins +5,10,15,20 more depending on luck)* (not the exact numbers)
You can use the wallet.epools.org online wallet for ARG and trade it at Cryptsy. It's worth decent $ atm but there are very few pools...you can probably solo mine it with your farm Hokies.
It will run 100% but temps can be low and it can be perfectly safe as long as you undervolt and use a proper psu (and have good airflow!)

You oc ram as far as it goes without touching voltages, then find a proper core to mem speed ratio. (should be something like 1020 core with 1700 mem)

So down clock CPU, run my memory at 1600, and OC the memory on my card as high it'll go and then try to get the core at the best ratio, got it.

Is most of this "set it and forget it?" or is there a lot of manual processes?

I forsee getting a console and having my comp run 24/7 with this going.

So after my first night of successful mining, I decided to go ahead and build a dedicated miner in order to avoid the excess noise in my bedroom.
I found this site and plan on using their 4x GPU build. Is this a good list of hardware, or should I make some adjustments? Cost aside, I'm just looking to get the most efficient set-up I can get.

Yup, do that...I got a ps3 lol
Felt bad everytime I fired a game and LOST money xD
I actually bought into a mining contract with kncminer guys...hope that works out fine.

Easy, get 4 x Giga WF3 7950s, flash them to bios F43.
Get a 4gb pendrive, and flash it with BAMT for scrypt mining found here: https://forum.litecoin.net/index.php?topic=2924.0
Don't be afraid of linux, it comes ready to go with drivers and an easy gui.
It also allows you to control the miner by connecting to it using the rig's lan IP. Pretty sweet!
Get a cheap sempron 140 and a gigabyte 970ud3 board as well as 4 pci-e risers, 3 x 16x to 16x ones and one 1x to 16x powered one.
Get a good 850w psu and run the thing 24/7, then wait for ROI mining litecoin and digital coin.

very informative thread there, thanks for posting it!

I just got started with a single 7870 tahiti card and at 1000mhz core I'm getting 400Mhash/s which in the grand scheme of things won't add up to quick. Need 2 more of them biggrin.gif

Would this set-up leave room for expansion if I bought a 1250 or so watt psu? Like say I wanted to add a 5th GPU?

You draw 200w per card and say 150w for cpu and ram (less probably)

But will that board support 5 cards? I know some tend to shut off one of the PCI-E slots. Also does Linux support 5 cards?

Linux supports a gazillion cards...and you can make any board work with 5 cards as long as you have pci-e risers/adapters. (get powered ones / with molex for 1x slots)*

*some boards need you to short a pin to make it work though

Hey guys, I'm prepping for a Litecoin price hike when they appear on Mt. Gox, and plan to trade my LTC for BTC. Does anybody use BTC-e for swapping currencies? If so, what was your experience like with them?
