So the company I worked for is moving, the lease expired, so my mining rigs have to be out by the 25th. So sad!


I'm thinking it's just time to retire the systems rather than run new power and cooling at the new location.

Does the community have any tips for retiring 70+ GPUs? Should I re purpose (to what end), sell individually, in bulk, target practice...?

I'd love to hear your suggestions

You could slowly sell them on eBay to avoid flooding the market.  GPUs still have value to gamers even if they're not of much use for mining anymore.  You could also try selling the motherboards/other components, although you probably won't get much.

It really depends what type of GPU they are.  I'd also check the marketplace/goods/computer hardware forum to see if you could get a better deal selling them here. (w/o eBay's insane fees)

keep them and mine other alt coins with them or find somewhere to hold them and then re start up mining with them. If you are at brake even point then maybe sell half keep half and mine and buy new Acsic's come out buy a bunch of them.

if you're trying to sell on this forum, sure

5830's still sell for $70+shipping on eBay, that's about $5-$10 less than 6 months ago

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

You could mine TRC- you wouldn't really even need to change any settings. You don't need to keep all the GPU's either to do that. The Diff is low for now, you could plow through some TRC to hold as things are looking up for TRC.

more or less retired.

70 GPU's is twice what I have at my warehouse, and I'm using about a quarter of the power available to me.

Just pay for shipping and electricity (.05c per KWh) and I can have them mine bitcoin, litecoin, whatever you're interested in.

Send me a PM and we'll work out the details.

This might be a good group buy opportunity. Would you be interested in selling to a group of us?

You could receive payment immediately, all at once, and I (or anyone really) could coordinate with the buyers (payment, shipping arrangements, etc.)
