It only mines sha256 coins...maybe generate vanity addresses?

That's a good idea, I'll look into it.

 

EDIT: I looked into it and unfortunately that isn't possible. :sad-smile

My miner just lost connection to the internet router... Really random and odd. I can't even SSH into it frown.gif

Got it fixed, for some reason when if it for some reason restarts, the miner hangs on a screen that requires me to push enter on 'start ubuntu'

Hey guys, I have a 10g's budget to spend on some mining rigs. ASAP

Any suggestions on what to buy for best ROI.

Also Linux vs Windows, what route I should take.

Is there any updated guides on this, I've already done a lot of research but I still have some confusion.

I have about 10 years in IT, I can build these things in my sleep. But I know there is always tricks and workarounds arounds to get things to run better.

So any of you experienced miners, if you had 10g's today what would you do to to start a brand new farm.

I'm trying to minimize the issues that a beginner minner would usually come across.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Easy:

Get Z87X-OC or any other quadfire capable board, no need for risers. Get Pentium G3220.
Get 4 R9 280X cards, or R9 290.
Get a 1000w psu and undervolt the cards flashing a modded bios using VBE7 and atiwinflash. I'd reccomend the 280X cards, easier to work with.
I know it'll cost a bit more than risers and crappy boards, but it'll be more hassle free.
Get two server fans, 5000rpm+ 120x38mm beasts, one per pair of cards.
Use a quasi-server rack case or cabinet, no need for a proper case, just some form of wind tunnel.
Get a duct, duct heat out of a window or the roof.
For an OS, easy setup and whatnot, use pendrives with Win 8 CRAPE: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=247537.0
Or get ssd's and use Win 8, but you'll need license keys, ouch.
Rinse and repeat!

CRAPE looks amazing, only thing BAMT needed was voltage control IMO, and it looks like you can run Afterburner on that, which should allow some software voltage control. Simpler than BIOS flashing, I'll have to try that out, I could be using a lot less power... lol

Interesting read. Wish I had more BTC to spend right now.

But as another side project i might get some bucks made from those 290s to convert my farm to a FPGA...

Alabama is the same too. Right now since its winter once I go over a certain percentage my power is knocked down to .06. Then in the summer it stays at .08.

I think i'll be trying out Win 8 CRAPE later this week!
