Is it wierd I'm more excited about building my own open mining rack than i am about the actual mining? tongue.gif

No building rigs is fun....biggrin.gif I really hope it does work out for you btw.

Especially with the memory clock, which seems critical to getting over the magic 300 kh/s. I hope this updates on the first post page as well. I'm disappointed in the Asus card. I may try another brand soon or a r7 265. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks

It's all about the silicon lottery. I have a batch of Gigabyte cards and only one is stable at stock clocks and above. The rest need to be sent back due to having corrupted ram. I went through BSOD after BSOD before I finally figured it out. So changing brand doesn't necessarily guarantee better results.

Looks promising: http://cryptomining-blog.com/1351-the-new-nvidia-video-drivers-335-23-unlock-gtx-750-ti-gpu-overclock/

Gonna try this tomorrow.

I can also corroborate this by saying that the ASUS cards don't OC for me worth a crap. Some only take +225 on MEMCLK.

Trying it right now I have a win7 64 and a xubuntu 64 setup. Been playing with testing xubuntu overclocking tests all day.

Thanks guys for posting all your great mining tips!

If these GTX 750 Ti video cards run cool and draw little power can't I just just build something that will work in a standard PC case with a few extra fans?

Is it possible to build a mining PC without using risers, milk crates, zip ties, chewing gum and baling wire? smile.gif

Possible components:

4 x GTX 750 Ti video cards (EVGA 750 Ti FTW?)
1 x motherboard with 4 x PCI-E x16 slots (ASUS Z87-WS?)
1 x 750W power supply
1 x standard PC case with extra fans

Thanks in advance.

Sure thing, that's what I do at home...that board is a little on the expensive side. z87x-oc or an X79-UD3 would do biggrin.gif

Techpowerup also had bad memory clocks compares to the MSI one, I wonder why that is. The only explanation iven that they use the same memory (Samsung HC-03) is the longer trace due to the memory phase being on the right side of the PCB. I also believe ASUS uses UBIQ mosfets of unknown quality (no datasheets).

I have the Z87X-OC right now with some 750ti cards. A EVGA 500B should be able to handle 4 cards at stock voltages. I haven't run them yet but they're installed and it comes down to a very nice compact size. The OC brace that comes with the motherboard is really handy for mining setups- it keeps your cards well aligned without a case or external brackets.

Yup, and if you get the OC bug you can get a pot and go subzero on the cpu, and bench single gpu setups biggrin.gif
