Do the new Intel CPU's come with heat sinks?

Also does the heat from the GPU effect the M.2 SSD?

Currently Newegg has $25 off $200 when you check out with Paypal using code PP2016BTS.

found the best low cost heatsink ever


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BVC8IVS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?

easy peasy install 4 to 5 c better then the stock intel coolers.


Don't know if the ssd will suffer in its location.

but I ran it with the nanos  which were hotter. been running this mobo since april

I will check that promo out thanks.

Why do you need to buy the other CPU coolers? I use the Intel CPU cooler, they can cope with the heat.

Same thought here. I use the standard Intel CPU cooler and all is fine. Note that the ones for the i7 CPUs are better than the ones for the Celeron.

the m2 ssd sitting under those fornace may be at bad state with temp, can you check the temp of your storage?

I  don't use an m.2, but I run OpenHardwareMonitor on my rig and it tracks all kinds of stats, including storage temp.

Lots of ways to get this value, just sharing mine.

I have speedfan.  I will photo and post numbers I have been tweaking just a bit

now at 100mh and 580 watts


ssd reads 30c
and I am now at 100mh vs 96h


better shot of temps for ssd and for gpus



584 watts  but watts flux from 579 to 592

OHM can show the CPU power draw for newer CPUs, similar to GPUz for the graphics.

yeah I will have to set it up just to break down  what is cards and what is cpu's

If I shut off mining I drop from 584 to 50

So these cards pull 534 at the ac plug when I mine.


i only wished i had pushed my orders more.

speed fan is good as it shows all temps and allows me to change fan speed.

i want to build this same rig with 4 more rx 480's.

200 mh at 1168 watts sounds good to me
here is one more shot of temps

Phil, you convinced me ! Now I'm just hesitating between the R9 480 and the GTX 1060. I'd like to get your thought on this, because I'll surely order soon.

Claymore said that he will release soon a CDM for Nvidia - so basically no difference

Things have now regressed. I think my Mobo and CPU are struggling to boot all 3 cards. I have an older Z87 chipset and i7 875k CPU. It will not consistently recognize the cards. PCIe speeds are suspect at this point. I have to manually set Gen3 speed. It will not accept auto detect, nor and speeds below Gen3

i assure you a properly set up and bog stock, comparatively weak by todays standards cpu like an q6600, has NO problem with a r9 390 and r9 380 with a hd6870 mining crypto. and it gets 21 mhs and 31 mhs at eth, which is exactly right with others gpus. oh and plus sia and decred as dualies

you setup is wrong somehow.

I don't necessarily disagree with you, but I spent A TON of time re-configuring this rig in any which way that would post.  I used the onboard graphics, I used one of the 480s, I used the other 480, I used all ports of the HDMI/DP, I moved the PCIe speed down to Gen2, Gen1, up to Gen3, auto....  I tried alot of of things!

The only thing that is stable is to set Gen3 and only use 2 of the PCIe (x16) connectors.  Any time I added a third card via an x1 powered riser, no boot...

My time (and sanity) is worth something.  I went with the Asrock Racing board noted below.  Maybe I gave up too early, but I was out of ideas.

An older chipset like you reference will only go Gen2 speeds.  Perhaps that chipset/BIOS can handle 3 to 4 cards.  Mine could not....

Missed it oh well,  thanks for the post.

@ red rose   1060 is good   As is rx 480.

Just do one or the other on that same board.

LoneRangir:

Are you sure the riser is good?

I had a problem with a riser that seemed fine and I wasted a ton of time dealing with it.  The result was the machine would not go to POST but I could get it to boot if I plugged the riser into the x1 slot instead of a x16 but then under mining the driver would fail after 20-45 mins. (3 gpu machine btw)

The riser has a thin solder bridge on one of the pins on the back so I cut it with my knife.  Now It works fine and I have been mining for about a week straight on this rig.  Something to take a look at, just remember it will be a little hard to spot.

Tmdz,

I will take a look at the riser, that sounds similar to my story. Either way, I am glad I'll be getting away from risers. I hear not so flattering things about them. I have the cards spread across multiple machines until the new rig comes.

Risers suck..  I mined with a ton ( 21-24 at 6kwatts)    of btc gpu's back in 2012.  cards pulled more power then and riser were really not reliable.

that Biostar mobo is very interesting.... is there a good 5 x PCI version?
