Guys,

How to build such a frame? Is it hard? Where to buy a parts, bolts etc?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/KADA-6-1-GPU-Mining-Rig-Open-Air-Frame-Case-Chassis-with-6-USB-Risers-Ethereum-/201058353189?hash=item2ed0030025:g:tvwAAOxyhXRTLk2C

Honestly speaking I'm not a very friendly with my hands Smiley

Maybe maybe not.

First question is what is your power cost?
Next question is do you have any parts?

anybody using deepcool quanta dq1250? any comments?

http://www.deepcool.com/product/powersupply/2014-02/10_796.shtml

bought a brand new at a huge discount, only 145 $

5 year warranty 145 usd seems to be a good deal.

it is two rails  1 is 45amps the other is 65 amps

http://www.deepcool.com/product/powersupply/2014-02/10_796.shtml

click output to see this




AC INPUT        VOLTAGE   CURRENT   FREQUENCY
                      100-240V   15.0A   47-63Hz

DC OUTPUT   +3.3V   +5V        +12V1     +12V2   -12V   +5VSB

CURRENT(Max)   25A            25A     45A             65A           0.8A     4A
OUTPUT(Max)         150W                  540W      780W          9.6W   20W


TOTAL OUTPUT   1250W




so proper setup for more then 4 cards may not be possible or at least tricky

i've already gave this a thought, "combining" modular cables in +12V1 (45A) with an adaptor to pcie can still power another one gpu. also i've read in a review that +12V2 can do up to 75A

are you saying that a 1250w PSU can run a 4 GPU setup? of what type of cards? I have a seasonic x-1250 btw

i have r9 390's and 280x's , without undervolting, "stock and overclocking only", how many can i squeeze into a 1250w PSU ideally?

normally i would put 3 280x to a 1250w, i tried 4 280x in a 1250w but it seems like it's stressing the PSU, haven't tried 3 r9 390s there but i think it can run okay.

if you live in a cooler climate, that's fine..the spacing between the cards will make the temps too high from where i live

It is hard to call abq cooler place Smiley - I think you can control the gaps between cards.

What is your temperature/card?

my cards varies, 74c to 83c

sometimes gaps are not enough, some of my cards are hanged like clothes lol, and i have two 145w electric fans at full speed, the first blows and the other serves as an exhaust fan (push-pull setup), the fans are worth 40$ each and have 5 years motor warranty Grin

Got you

Mine R9 390 are about 77C and I do not use external fans. Gap is about 5 cm (2") between

Are you not underclocking? You do stock or over clock? If that is the case I can't advise you as I,never overclock when I mine.  I underclock Exclusively

actually overclock only..under clocking gpu ram maybe but i haven't tried it yet because i think i should use bios mods, maybe i'll try with 280x's, not with 390's (still under warranty).

lets skip power costs..

280x and 390 only

under clocked hash rate compared to overclocked hash rate?

an obvious advantage with under clocked gpus is you can pack more in a rig (space wise)

my r9 390 over clocked to 1150 core, gpu ram 1500 (cannot under clock), monitored and customized through MSI AB

I'm getting 32.x MH with 650 MH on DCR (Dual mining mode)

Will play with BIOS on overclocking too

Question on DCR - does it worth to mine it?

Which pool and what is the exchange rate to ETH (or BTC)?

as far as i'm concerned overclocking does not need BIOS tinkering, under clocking GPU RAM does because AMD didn't want that, and i don't know why.

DCR is just a bonus in dual mining mode..well not exactly a bonus since claymore charge 2% fee in dual and only 1% fee in single..

I'm not selling my mined DCR, just stockpiling it since it is still in very early part of development (I'm speculating here).

i mine at ethermine and recently switched to ethpool because ethermine just removed "reported hashrate" --> i prefer seeing this.

ETH is currenty at ~ 0.0235 from ~0.028 because BTC is rising.

Any promises that DCR will be a potential currency (let say 1-2 bucks per DCR)?

I have 3 rigs. Two of them have 6 Sapphire 380x(stock) 129mh and one rig with 4 MSI 380s(slight overclock) 82mh. They do have external fans and are running between 59c-65c. I have the onboard fans bumped up to 65%. I would rather replace the fan than the whole GPU!

This T is quite reasonable. Mine cards are loud - probably will put an external fan
