1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Would you buy a 16 GPU prebuilt rackmount mining rig? on: October 03, 2017, 06:20:30 PM
Cost will be a big thing. Today I can build a 16 RX 570/580 card rig with open air frame for $3500-$4000. IDK that you could build it, market it and still have margins in it.

Could you link a page you can buy 16 RX570 or RX580 for less than 3500-4000$ ? Smiley
I would buy 10 of those rigs from you right now for 3500$ - 4000$ / each
Can you provide us some details about those 16x RX 570-580 builds for 3500-4000$ please Smiley with detailed parts/price as of today October 3 -2017 ?

I said build not buy. The RX 570/580 can be found in the USA specialty stores for ~ $220-$230. If to buy in bulk you can easily get them for that price if not less by buying at least 5000 units.
$150 server PSU + Pico PSU. $25 plastic open mount rack and zip ties at Lowe's. $100 cheap Chinese mining board with riser CPU. $150 for RAM, CPU and SSD.

OK! Can you post some links where you can get rx570 and rx580 cards for 220-230$ in the usa with free shipping Smiley
In America the prices are a bit lower than elsewhere but not to this extent. I think OP just saw a Scam site or this website sells GPU working in the mining 1-2 years. I do think that mining on a GPU is a thing of the past. I absolutely do not see economic benefit to do it now. As soon as people will understand the price of the GPU should be reduced. This is the actual price you call, but demand is still too high to be able to buy the GPU at reasonable prices.

I actually just saw a gap in the ranks as far as prebuilt systems. 6-8 GPU solutions are being offered, but there's room in a typical 4U case for as many as 16 if you play your cards right.

16 GPUs in a 4U rackmount may look good, but have you considered about ventilation yet?
I think it could be hard, I'm willing to purchase if its price around 4800$ - 5000$ and each card temperature should be less than 73C.

Without scale, it'll be a LOT more than that, but with scale, I could get quite a good value.
Maybe even under $5K.

Ventilation is being heavily considered in our designs, and we'll actively select the GPUs that we install based on ventilation.
No promises regarding 73C just yet, but I'm optimistic. We're really trying to put the airflow through the finished prototype. (which doesn't yet exist) Thinking either Noctua or Delta High-CFM, High static pressure fans. We've got a lot of fins to work around.

I would if the price was reasonable. Also depends on the type of hardware being used.

Hardware is in the works, but you can count on good quality components.

I would vote yes for this, sounds like a beast of a machine. How much would something like this run in terms of $$?

I'd put it in the neighborhood of $9K-$10K, fully loaded with ~500MH/s, being a little bit liberal, and accounting for shipping.

Such a wide margin is required at this point. Too many variables to nail down.

The price does seem a little bit high, but remember- this is a 16 GPU rig, with retail GPU prices. if I were to get some kind of volume i think i could get the prices down by maybe as much as $1K, possibly $2K.

Sadly this isn't something that I can provide pictures on, as it is currently in its prototyping stage.

It's a combination of careful use of space and proper airflow.

I've been mining ETH and recently ZEC on some typical custom built 6 GPU rigs and was wondering:
Now that parts are available to make such a thing viable, would anyone like to buy a prebuilt 16 GPU rig? they would effectively look and function like the ones pictured here:
, only on steroids.

The design is this: 16 GPUs crammed inside of a 4U form factor custom-built rackmount chassis. Possible hashrates include 500MH/s+ ETH per server. [!!!]
What are your thoughts?
Please vote and comment on your reasoning!! Why did you vote the way you did? Let me know!
