I put that r9 290 in my bedroom desktop to mine... I can't imagine how loud a whole setup would be. That card is outrageously jet enginey...

A new crypto trading bot is coming out here, beta testing is starting. You can program it to your whim using Python scripts. I'm really looking forward to this.

I have a mining rig with a single Sapphire 7970 close to my bed, and that is still quieter than my MSI 7950 in my desktop roaring 10 feet away. It's the loudest thing in the room. I can't wait to finally water cool it in the coming days.

The double 6 pins are turning out to be quite the pain, the PSU that I ordered had 8pin + 6 pin connectors which would not work with them frown.gif.

may I inquire as to why you deccided on 270s for your miing rig instead of 280x or 290s?

edit* just did the math and it seems they are a better buy more hashing power for less money if you have the space

Yes, they are cooler, quieter, more profitable, the price is not currently inflated (better if the whole crypto game crashes) and it was right around my budget for a full unit.

It might throttle them if you set it too low, all it does si change the total TDP limit of your card

I haven't touched it before - I was under the impression mining is always maxing out the GPU, getting as much out of it as possible, so any reduction in power will be detrimental - or have I got it wrong ?

Just curious, do you guys think that the Mining bundle that Newegg has is a decent deal?

No, someone pointed out a little earlier that the MB doesn't even support the amount of cards included in the package
