Ah alright I figured I was missing something.  Group buy could be good as I expect these to be in short supply, the gtx 1070 is still sold out most everywhere and it has been out for nearly a month now.  I was reading an article that said as soon as supply comes in the 1070 sells out the same day.

4gb 480's will have slower ram as I understand so they will hash slightly slower ~ 22 mh on eth.  But real world numbers are yet to be seen

Ah alright I figured I was missing something.  Group buy could be good as I expect these to be in short supply, the gtx 1070 is still sold out most everywhere and it has been out for nearly a month now.  I was reading an article that said as soon as supply comes in the 1070 sells out the same day.

4gb 480's will have slower ram as I understand so they will hash slightly slower ~ 22 mh on eth.  But real world numbers are yet to be seen

if they do 22mh at 110 watts or lower they would be very good.

8gb may be more able to do a new eth2 coin  with a super big dag.  they will be 239 vs 199 in price.

What we don't know is do these cards mine at a 5 watt per mh rate   110 watts for 22mh or 100watts per 20mh are both good.

We don't know if they will sell out like mad.

Reference cards = loud

but if the watts are at 90-120  they may be okay.

I am going to send a follow up email on card purchase this Monday.

I think I have commitment for 17 cards plus I want 15 = 32  so I may have 18 more to sell. I will not take any orders until I have paid for the cards via cc provantage.com is a big seller  so if they take the order We would be safe from no cards being shipped to me.

I'd probably be interested in like 3 or 4 cards depending on the price.

I'm lucky enough to live near a Micro center. I've  seen postings that they have their cards already.  But I read all this on the internet, so.....

...apparently there is an embargo on the cards and supplier can only start selling on 29th June.

yeah  still have to wait  boy would I love to have one of these for testing right now.

eth coin looks robust at 14 usd plus

I can use 15 cards and burn only 1400 -1800 watts for 300- 330mh i was burning more then 2800 watts for same hash rate

I can build 2 four card rigs and run them at the array if I can get them stable.

Kind of excited to find out the deal.

I've just read the whole thread, and noticed a lot of mentions about evga 1300w , but nothing about servers psus.
Isn't it a good idea to use some to power the gpus ?
I'm thinking about the IBM 2000w server's PSU.

Most people must be mounting the host PC and cards in a traditional PC case, I'd assume.

23 mh at 100 watts is pretty good. Stock clock.


When I did the r9 nano I got 27 mh at 180 watts with stock freq and -96 mc.

So if I use -96 mv on the ex 480 I may go to 90 watts

So 90watts 23mh
Or 180watts 27mh


Pric for rx 480.     229usd

Price for r9 nano. 499 used

So less then 1/2 the price  1/2 the watts and a 15 % drop in hash.

If I can use 90 watts a card I can run 10 cards at 1000 watts.  And get 230 mh in house

And run 8 cards in the solar array and get 184 at the solar array.

I'll take those 18 off of you if you do get discounts, if it's normal price than can probably just purchase them locally.

Currently, I have 88MHs at 22MHs x 4 Nanos pushing 1.9amps at 670w, using -118v rom mod from Heliox.

If at stock, undervolted i can save 50% of price and watts - its no brainer and worth getting this nice card.

Ive read through the thread now and am a bit gutted that my electricity is so expensive, combined with eth getting a lot harder to mine now or else i would have liked to have built a decent rig like this. If something new ends up coming out that i can justify splashing out on that many gpus then i might still but doesn't look like there's anything on the horizon.

what are you paying for power ? I pay .15 cents per watt in summer around .09 in winter and its still quite profitable to mine as long as eth is above $6 usd

I predict with this latest DAO fiasco and how the miners saved the value of eth by voting yes on the soft fork the Eth team will really look hard at expanding the mining period at least another year till they get tons of DAPPs out there
to test and validate that the platform can be fully trusted.

So don't expect mining to end for at least 18-24 months.  Plus the added inflation is helpful since it dilutes the premine a bit.

I pay around 23 to 24 cents per kw. Ive been mining for a whiule with just a single gtx 970 and hit a few blocks but im mining at a loss im pretty sure. eth would have to go up in price a fair bit for me to be able to recover the costs of both hardware and coins. Id probably be lucky to break even.

Thank you for the answer.
I guess server's psus could be a good way to lower rig's cost as it is way cheaper than evgas.
With 2000w , it could power two air fram rigs dedicated to mining. (not rigs in case or rigs to sell to gamers like in first Phil strategy)

mine in a pool solo is always gona result in a loss with that tiny a hash rate at the very leaat you make a small profit not a loss

yeh from coinwarz even at 24 cents a watt a single 970 costs only 92cents to run and makes a profit of 1.50 usd

not sure why you think you can solo mine with one gpu lol

not sure why you think you can solo mine with one gpu lol

I know,  its not viable anymore,  when i first started it was fine but difficulty shot up pretty quick.  The main reason i went solo was because i was hitting blocks in the pool but getting less of a payout.  Now that I'm not hitting blocks i suppose pool is the way forward.

if POW is extended, investing ETH mining will be worthwhile.

But, you will need to run a lot of rigs to fully maximize your rewards.

RX480/470s are really good miners if it can hit the 20MHs-ish hash with 100watts or under per GPU, and your electricity is cheap.
