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!

My advice would be to go with parts that are known to work together. Google google google all part numbers for mining experience because if a group of the parts don't play well then you have a really fancy power drainer.

Good luck. I thought I was experienced with hardware but mining is more finicky than overclocking and can be a major pain in the ass especially when stuff randomly stops working (still happens to my rig once in awhile). There can be a lot of baby sitting. 10 G's is a lot to be throwing into it right now with ASICs lingering and alt coins taking roller coaster rides. Also, card prices are stupidly high right now.

Does anybody use CRAPE? It looks interesting but the wireless not working on reboot would kill it for me right now.

Does anybody have a good voltage unlocked 280x BIOS?

Modify it yourself...you don't need it unlocked, only flashed to the desired volts.

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

Interested to see what you think of CRAPE. I tried BAMT but go nowhere with it. Tried several USB sticks, but it would always stall during startup and never finish loading. If CRAPE works, I may give it a try.

On a side not, picked up two 290x's with AC waterblocks for $600 each, so not to shabby. Now I need a couple more power supplies and I will have 5MHs of hashing power. biggrin.gif

It was a pain last time I tried it. I'll just hunt down that last one I tried flashing in vain since my RMAed 280 was still jacked.


I just plugged in my 4th 280 and so far it hashes on my gold CM 1000w but that's not the best thing for the PSU in the long run so I gotta undervolt. Rig almost finally 100% utilized FINALLY:thumb:


Being in cali though that talk about tiered power has got me nervous. I hope we don't get a surprise on the bill haha.
